Apple’s macOS 15 Sequoia is also a big update, and the recent WWDC 2024 conference confirmed that many new features will be available on your Mac in the upcoming version, including Apple Intelligence as one of the promoted technologies.

However, there is another big update for macOS 15 offered by Apple and it is the so-called iPhone Mirroring feature, which will allow users to use their iPhones directly on their computer. It’s more than just screen mirroring and AirPlay, as it allows users to control their Apple smartphone, from browsing and using apps to offering iPhone on their computer.

Safari will next be enhanced on Mac with Highlights, Reader updates, and Browser, providing enhanced streaming features.

Apple has also put a huge emphasis on Mac gaming with this update, as in addition to the new titles, a more immersive Spatial Audio feature is also coming along with the Game Porting Toolkit 2 for developers.
