The new operating system for Macs is called Monterey. This will now give you a really cool option to reset your Mac.
In the past, if you wanted to reset or wipe your laptop, it would delete all of your data and operating system and then install a new system. Monterey will only erase your data and user-installed applications, but will keep the existing operating system.
Another cool thing is that Apple will allow you to keep your existing iPhone version and not update if you decide not to, and you will be able to add some important new features from the latest update.
So you can stick to version 14.0 instead of upgrading to version 15.0 and benefit from the major security updates of version 15.0.
One of the new features of Monterey using FaceTime is a feature called Voice Isolation which will block out all other noise.
Additionally, FaceTime will support both Windows and Android users by sending them a link. When the Windows user clicks on the link, it will automatically open FaceTime.
FaceTime will let you schedule a FaceTime meeting in advance by sending links to attendees via email, iMessage, or calendar invitation. This means FaceTime is in serious competition with Zoom.
A new feature of FaceTime is Share Play, which allows all users to listen to music together, watch videos together, and share screens together. With this screen sharing feature, you can actually see the other person’s screen and even help them solve a problem.
In Messages, you can place photos in a single carousel view which can be flipped or tapped to get a grid view of all photos. You will no longer need to manually remove individual photos from the Messages app.
Here is a really cool feature called Live Text. Open a photo of a business card – you can extract the phone number and it will automatically dial the number, or it can be pasted into an email. In other words, you can get text from a photo and do a lot of things with it.
With Spotlight, you can search for specific people, scenes, or text in a photo. So if a photo contains a phone number, you can use Spotlight search to find and call that number.
When using the Photo app, you can now use the feature called Photo Memories to stitch together relevant photos and videos to create a video with a song selected in Apple Music that matches the occasion – and the beat of the song. to the action of the video.
The Wallet application allows you to scan your driver’s license there.
With maps. a new night mode lets you explore cities by moonlight. The maps will feature editorial-authored guides for cities and places to visit while on the go.
