Apple is rumored to be more closely integrating macOS and iOS together with the introduction of macOS 10.15 and iOS 10.13.
Sources have said that Apple is working on support for Siri shortcuts, a feature that debuted in iOS 12 that allows users to create custom voice shortcuts that could be activated from certain apps.
It’s thought that the Shortcuts app could arrive on macOS 10.15. On iOS, the Shortcuts app is not bundled with the system, users have to download it from the App Store. It’s possible that the same will be true for macOS: users will download a Marzipan version of Shortcuts from the Mac App Store.
Sources have also stated that Marzipan apps will be able to take advantage of the Shortcuts feature on macOS. Engineers are also working on bringing the assistant on macOS closer to its iOS counterpart by porting over features such as the ability to set timers and alarms and ask about air quality, currently unavailable on the Mac.
Screen Time on the Mac will work just like it does on iOS. There will be a new panel in System Preferences to configure the feature. When the time limit for an app has been exceeded, an overlay will be shown, allowing the user to either close the app or unlock the app with a passcode.
Apple is also working on bringing a new Apple ID management panel to System Preferences, including better support for configuring Family Sharing, similar to what’s currently available in the iOS Settings app. Yet another feature from iOS that’s coming to the Mac with macOS 10.15 are the iMessage effects such as confetti, lasers, fireworks and others.
Additional features as to macOS 10.15 should be announced during the Worldwide Developers Conference, which begins on June 3rd, with developers receiving a beta the same day. The final version for consumers should be available in late September or October.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
