Key areas that Siri can now help you with

Ask Siri to do its thing while you do yours

Siri on Mac is all about multitasking. So you can be working on one thing, like finishing a document and ask Siri to send a message to your co-worker saying it’s on the way — without stopping what you’re doing.

Let Siri locate your files for you

Working with files is a big part of using a Mac. And Siri makes it easy. Can’t remember where you saved that report? Ask Siri to search for the documents you opened this week, then refine your results to just the ones with the word “annual” in the title.

Keep Siri results where you can always find them

Pin sport fixtures, Twitter results, a list of files related to your big project and more, straight in Notification Center. Everything stays up to date — so you always know where to find match times, trending topics or important documents.

Search. Drag. Drop

Search for images and information just by asking. Then drag results to a window on your desktop. Drop an image from the web into a Pages document to make it pop. Or a Maps location into an invitation to get your party started.

Additional features centre around using multiple Apple devices

Documents available on all devices - iPhone and iPad users will benefit from this new feature the allows files stored in documents to be automatically stored in iCloud Drive.

Automatic login - Use the Apple watch to log in before you have even sat down at your computer.

Universal clipboard - When browsing the web on your iPhone you may come across content more useful on another device like your iPad like a recipe. pasting clippings of this content can now be copied easily across devices.

Optimize Storage - When storage space is maxed out lesser used files can be automatically stored on iCloud or identified so you can mark for deletion.
