On top of everything else today at WWDC, Apple provides with a look at macOS High Sierra, the latest version of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. The update features numerous enhancements, including new core storage, video and graphics technologies, paving the way for future innovation on the Mac.

In addition, macOS High Sierra offers an all-new file system, support for High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and an update to Metal, Apple’s advanced graphics technology that powers everything from machine learning to virtual reality content creation. Updates to Photos, Safari and Mail have also been provided as well.

“macOS High Sierra delivers important forward-looking technologies and new opportunities for developers wanting to tap into the power of machine learning and create immersive VR content on the Mac,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “The core technology innovations in macOS High Sierra, combined with our advances in hardware, will continue to push the Mac forward in exciting new ways.”

Apple File System features enhanced performance, security and reliability of data, ultimately making common tasks such as copying files and directories instantaneous, helping protect data from power outages and system crashes, and keeping files safe and secure with native encryption.

Metal 2 then notes a refined API and improved performance that help developers accelerate their apps, adding support for machine learning used in speech recognition, natural language processing and computer vision.

For the first time ever, macOS High Sierra adds support for VR content creation. Multiple companies are joining with Apple to further advance the capabilities of VR, while Final Cut Pro X will add support for professional 360-degree workflows with the ability to import, edit and export 360-degree video.
