The idea is to guarantee the user better concentration, keeping the window in use in the foreground and the others visible to the side so you can have everything you need close.
The Continuity feature of the camera allows you to use an iPhone as a Mac webcam, with many additional settings. With this mode, the computer automatically detects the smartphone nearby by activating the function without unlocking or selecting anything. Among the main features of Continuity: are different framing options, shooting modes, automatic framing, background blur, and much more.
Handoff also comes to Mac, allowing the user to initiate a FaceTime call and transfer it to other nearby Apple devices without having to hang up.
macOS Ventura: Updated Applications
Among the most anticipated updates of the new macOS Ventura is that of Safari, which has developed innovative shared panels designed to see the activities on the web of friends, family, and colleagues invited to share in real-time.
The function is specially designed for work projects, where groups of several people collaborate directly online. Moreover, from within the browser, it will be possible to start a conversation via Messages or FaceTime without leaving the application.
Passkeys have also been implemented on Safari, designed to use biometric recognition instead of passwords on various sites. In this way, greater security is guaranteed, and there is no risk that personal codes are saved on external servers with the risk of being stolen by hackers. The passkeys will be synchronized on all Apple devices, and the user can use any of them to log in to the sites.
Many innovations have been introduced in the new macOS Ventura: productivity, security, and collaboration between users and different Apple devices return to the center.
Mail receives a renewed search method designed to make managing your mailbox even more accurate. The update also includes sending scheduled messages and the ability to delete an email immediately.
In addition, the application allows reminders to reread a critical message at a particular time, automatic follow-ups to remind recipients to read “ignored” news, and notifications when sending an email with missing parts such as attachments, subject, and so on.
We have introduced Mail functions on Messages, such as modifying or canceling recently sent messages and recovering deleted ones. Again, Apple has thought about collaboration, with many of these solutions developed for teamwork, such as creating shared messages that all invited users can edit.
Finally, Spotlight guarantees better integration between the various Apple devices and full compatibility with Testo Attivo, capable of detecting the writings on photos and videos. Furthermore, it will allow you to launch different applications from within Spotlight, making it easier to use and manage.
