macOS Sonoma Features
macOS Game Mode
During its WWDC 2023 keynote, Apple introduced a brand-new mode called ‘Game Mode’ in macOS Sonoma, which optimizes CPU and GPU resources to provide a smoother gaming experience. Moreover, this mode is also expected to reduce latency with wireless accessories, such as AirPods and controllers.
Autocorrect in macOS Sonoma will now offer a slew of improvements over the outgoing macOS Venture. Words that have been corrected will be temporarily underlined, allowing users to easily identify changes. If you feel that autocorrect made a mistake, you can revert to the previous word with just a tap.
Widgets on Mac
Apple now provides a new widget gallery that users can choose from and place widgets on their desktops as desired. Additionally, these widgets offer control over device functions, such as playing music and adjusting lighting settings.
Better PDF and Notes Integration
Users can now view a ‘full-width PDF’ directly within the Notes app and navigate between its pages. Furthermore, users have the option to add more than one PDF document to the same note for better document organization.
macOS Sonoma is expected to be available for download later today at 10:30 PM IST.
