Apple releases macOS Sierra, brings Siri to desktop

As promised, Apple has released the new version of its desktop operating system for all to download. The new OS carries an entirely new name, macOS Sierra, and brings a few interesting features.
The new version was introduced at WWDC in June and shortly after, in early July, Apple released the public beta for early adopters. Now over two months of testing later macOS Sierra can be downloaded – first time ever – from the Mac App Store.

The most significant new feature of the free update is voice assistant Siri which can now be found on the desktop. If enabled it can be found as a separate icon in the taskbar. In addition to Siri, Sierra brings a new universal clipboard, Apple Pay for web, new emojis, as well as better optimization for storage and iCloud.

Supported devices include:
  • MacBook (Late 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid 2010 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2010 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Mid 2010 or newer)
  • iMac (Late 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Mid 2010 or newer)

let me explain a lot on this there is a bypass for the 2009 macbook pros and tons of people know it and even funnier is all the drivers for the 2009 are still in the o.s so apple basically put a blocker in place
