Apple has released macOS Monterey, the latest iteration of its Mac and MacBook operating system, with users now able to download the final release version to their devices.

Apple’s release follows after 12 beta rounds, including two Release Candidate versions. It arrives one day ahead of the release date of new MacBook Pro models, including the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Users can manually force the update by opening System Preferences on their Mac, then select Software Update, and then follow the prompts.

Universal Control is a feature that allows one keyboard and trackpad to control three devices, whether they are Macs or iPads. It was not included with the release of iPadOS 15, and did not appear in the betas for macOS Monterey. Apple maintains that it will be available in the fall.

Shortcuts for Mac

The new macOS Monterey also brings Shortcuts from iOS to Mac. The automation tool is a more straightforward system than the longstanding Automator or AppleScript, both of which continue to be supported.

“This year we’re bringing shortcuts to the Mac,” announced Craig Federigh. “The Mac is after all, where we turn for so much of our creative work. And now you have automate the everyday stuff to achieve peak productivity.”

“With the shortcuts editor, you can easily link together a series of actions to design shortcuts for your specific workflows,” he continued. “We’ll weave Shortcuts throughout Mac OS, so you can run them no matter what app is open.”

Safari

Safari on macOS Monterey incorporates privacy and performance features, most notably in its new system for displaying and using tabs.

“We built Safari from the very beginning to provide the best browsing experience on Mac, and it continues to blow the competition out of the water,” said Federighi. “Our users are doing more in the browser, than ever before, work, school, shopping, entertainment, and that often leaves them with a lot of tabs, Windows and other distractions.”

“We think using the browser should feel natural, and uncluttered,” he continued. “So we’ve reimagined the browsing experience we distilled the toolbar to its essential elements. Tabs are more compact, modern, and lightweight, and there’s a completely new way to use tabs with tab groups allow you to easily save and manage your tabs, without cluttering up your tab bar.”

Privacy and iOS compatibility

Its other major updates also concentrate on adding new features toMessages, as well as improving support for Apple Silicon Macs. It’s also bringing the Mac up to date with features that are key to the new iOS 15.

That includes SharePlay. While on a FaceTime call with friends and colleagues, users can share movies, music, and more.

As it enables sharing this information with who users want to work with, Apple has also added to the existing privacy of macOS. Just as it will with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple Mail will block the ability for emailers to detect when users read their email.

Focus, Translation, and Privacy

Also brought across from the new iOS 15 is Focus. Users can set Focus mode across their devices, which filters out unrelated notifications — and can respond to other users automatically.

By default, Apple includes various specific Focus modes, such as Work, but users can add and customize their own.

Apple’s snapshot of new features in macOS Monterey

Apple’s translation app has been expanded upon, and its features will now be available system-wide. “Translate text anywhere, even in many third-party apps,” says Apple in a statement. “Just highlight text, rightclick, and select Translate to immediately see the translation.”

Also, users who currently pay for iCloud services will automatically be upgraded to iCloud+, which adds new privacy features to the Mac, including a VPN.

Hardware updates

Certain macOS Monterey features are directly related to hardware. A new Low Power Mode “manages energy-intensive apps and processing,” meaning battery life is extended.

Continuing the increasing use of spatial audio across the Apple eco-system, macOS Monterey will support it to bring theater-like sound to AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max.

Availability and compatibility

The first developer beta of macOS Monterey is being made available immediately. Public betas will begin in July, and the shipping version will be released in the Fall.

The new macOS Monterey will run on the following models of Mac:

  • iMac: late 2015 or later
  • iMac Pro
  • MacBook Air: early 2015 and later
  • MacBook Pro: early 2015 and later
  • Mac Pro: late 2013
  • Mac mini: late 2014 and later
  • MacBook: early 2016 and later

新MacBook Pro詳細ベンチマークテストでわかったメディアエンジンの効果は絶大

© アスキー 提供 M1 Proを搭載した新MacBook Pro  速報としてお届けした「M1 ProとM1 MAX比較「新MacBook Pro」緊急ベンチマークテスト結果公開」では、新しいMacBook Proのベンチマークテスト専用アプリによるテスト結果を、2020年末に登場したM1チップ搭載の13インチMacBook Proと比較した。その結果は、M1 ProおよびM1 Maxが、CPU性能、GPU性能とも、昨年のM1から大きく向上していることを示すには十分だっただろう。 © アスキー 提供  今回は、インテルCPUを搭載した旧モデルのMacBook Proも含めたベンチマーク専用アプリによるテスト結果に加え、新しいMacBook Proのエネルギーモードによるパフォーマンスの変化、ベンチマーク専用アプリではない実際のアプリによるパフォーマンスの違いなども含めて総合的な性能を評価していく。 旧インテルCPU搭載MacBook Proは楽々上回る  これまでのMacBook Proのユーザーとしていちばん気になるのは、インテルからApple Siliconにスイッチして、実際にどれだけ速くなっているか、ということだろう。2020年末に登場したM1搭載の13インチMacBook Proは、名ばかりとは言わないまでも、ディスプレイのサイズ、ポートの数なども含めて、MacBook Proの中ではどちらかというとエントリーモデル的な製品だった。それに対して今回登場した新しいモデルは、正真正銘のプロ用と言えるだけに、2020年のM1搭載モデル以上にパフォーマンス向上への期待が高まる。  そこで、インテル製CPU搭載モデルとして最後に登場した2019年の16インチモデルも含めて、まずはCPU性能を比較してみよう。CPUは2.3GHzの8コアCore i9を搭載するモデルだ。当時のモデルのベンチマークデータとして採取してあったGeekbenchの結果を、最新のデータと比較する。  まずはCPU性能をシングルコア、マルチコアの両方で比較しよう。 ...
