In less than three weeks will kick off the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, where the company is expected to unveil its new MacBook Pro, iOS 10, watchOS 3 and Mac OS X 10.2, which is codenamed Fuji. The new MacBook 2016 was released on April 19 and it runs on OS X El Capitan, but it will be update to “Fuji” this fall. Until then, rumors say that Apple will offer a public beta release of OS X 10.2 in July. Here are the features it may come with.
Apple didn’t manage to introduce Siri, the intelligent personal assistant, in OS X El Capitan, but the company will remediate this in OS X 10.12. According to MacRumours, users will fire up Siri by saying “Hey Siri” and with it, they’ll open applications, search for files on the machine or for information on the internet, they’ll ask questions, play music from iTunes, but only if the Mac will be connected to a power source.
An Auto-unlock Feature
Reports say that OS X 10.2 will allow users to unlock their Macs when they’ll have their iPhones very close. This way, they will no longer enter a passcode, but it’s not sure how this feature will work. However, rumors say that the next generation MacBook Pro laptops will come with a Touch ID sensor that will allow users to unlock their devices with their fingerprints.
Apple Pay In Safari
Re/code reported that the company wants to integrate Apple Pay into Safari browser, so that when users are accessing websites and want to purchase items, they will use this service to make the payment. This feature will be available in both iOS and OS X, but it will work only on Macs with Touch ID.
Photos app will be revamped and will make users forget about iPhoto 9.6.1. It isn’t known how Apple is planning to improve it, but rumors claim that it will include built-in image editing tools and the possibility to edit EXIF information.
