Whether you're eager to enhance your video calls, level up your gaming performance, or personalize your Mac, Sonoma has you covered. In this article, we will explore the exceptional characteristics that make macOS Sonoma an essential upgrade for Mac users.



What's new with macOS Sonoma?


Stunning Screen Savers

One of the first things you'll notice with macOS Sonoma is the breathtaking new screen savers. These slow-motion visuals showcase stunning locations from around the world, making your large Mac display come to life. The best part?

Widgets on Desktop

Sonoma brings a new level of convenience to your desktop. You can now add widgets directly to your desktop from the widget gallery, allowing quick access to functions like playing podcasts or controlling lights. Additionally, with Continuity, your iPhone widgets can effortlessly integrate with your Mac, eliminating the need to install corresponding apps.



Enhanced Video Conferencing

Video conferencing gets an upgrade with Sonoma's Presenter Overlay. Choose between large and small overlays to keep yourself front and center during screen sharing, making your presentations more engaging. The Screen Sharing picker simplifies the process of sharing apps during video calls, and the ability to control your video composition ensures you always look your best.



Safari and Passwords

Sonoma enhances your browsing experience with separate profiles in Safari, offering a way to keep your work and personal browsing separate. The improved search functionality and the ability to use web apps like native applications make web browsing smoother than ever. Plus, password sharing and enhanced private browsing keep your online activities secure.




Messaging becomes more efficient with search filters, catch-up arrows, and the ability to swipe to reply. You can now share and view locations seamlessly within your conversations, and all your stickers are conveniently stored in one place, syncing across your Apple devices.



PDFs and Notes

Sonoma makes managing documents a breeze. AutoFill now allows you to fill out PDFs and scanned documents quickly. You can also view full-width PDFs in Notes, link related notes, and seamlessly transfer work from Notes to Pages for further customization.




Typing becomes even more accurate with improved autocorrect, which highlights corrected words temporarily. Predictions appear inline as you type, making text input more efficient.




Sonoma brings more gaming options to your Mac than ever before, with fan-favorite titles taking center stage. Game Mode optimizes your CPU and GPU for gaming while reducing latency, providing a responsive gaming experience.



Privacy and Security

Enhanced privacy features include Communication Safety for sensitive content and the option to blur sensitive photos and videos. Improved permissions give you more control over your data, and Lockdown Mode provides added security against cyber threats.

Hi @kg,

You may check for known issues by reviewing the release notes or documentation provided by Apple for the OS update. They may have information on problems and their solutions.

It’s also a good idea to report some issues/bugs or glitches, you can do it by visiting the Bug Reporting - Apple Developer website.

Hope this helps!
