Because this is a hands-on review of the macOS 14 Sonoma public beta, certain features were not yet available for testing, and all new features examined may not be in their final edition. We will conduct a thorough examination of the operating system as soon as the final version is available.
With macOS Sonoma, Apple foregoes an epic upgrade in favor of magnificent landscapes and cityscapes. While many expected a significant macOS upgrade in 2023, given it has been over three years since macOS Big Sur, the previous operating system to provide big enhancements to consumers, Sonoma, which Apple presented during WWDC 2023, is more of an incremental update with important but still minor changes.
Are many people dissatisfied with the absence of innovation? Absolutely. However, this appears to be Apple’s new normal, as proven by the gadgets it has been releasing that feel more indulgent than required.
However, whether or whether Apple has entirely lost its mojo is a question for another day. I’m here to talk about the new macOS Sonoma, which is still scheduled for a Q3 release but whose public beta just launched last week. To be fair, it has a slew of useful, if modest in the larger scheme of things, additions that provide users with a more seamless experience and a more simpler workflow. And for so, it merits recognition.
