The latest desktop operating system of Apple also took a grand entrance in the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Apple’s senior vice president Craig Federighi took the stage to talk about the updates for frequently used applications and enhanced window management. He started by giving demos of some gestures in Mail, including Mailbox-style swiping to delete or mark as new.
He also showed how users can pin tabs within the browser, giving them a dedicated slot at the left side of the interface and pre-loading them when the browser is reopened.
Fredrighi further showed how Spotlight has been updated with natural language processing. A user can search for things like “Show me all mail from Phil that I’ve ignored” and it will automatically analyze the sentence to show the correct content in apps on the Mac.
