Just a few days ago, Apple updated MacOS Big Sur 11.2 to download, with better connectivity and performance, for the benefit of its users. However, as is often the case in the Apple world, there are those who prefer to think about future changes instead. So, Designer Parker Ortolani shared a concept focused on the next big macOS update.
Of course, no concept of macOS can be achieved without betting on the likely name Apple will decide. In this case, the designer chooses macOS “Monterey”, for its version which includes all new apps, improved privacy controls, clearer notifications and more.
Parker Ortolani shared his proposal via 9to5mac, taking into account important aspects such as security, fun, support for new applications and much more.
The next macOS name: This proposal considered names like “Santa Lucia” which is a mountain range near Big Sur. However, he decided to explore previously registered trademarks of Apple. “Monterey” is a name already registered by Apple and it just so happens to be the county in which Big Sur exists. It should be noted that “Big Sur” was one of the brands discovered at the same time as “Monterey” in 2014.
“The sheer size of Big Sur’s system redesign and Apple Silicon compatibility indicate that this year’s launch will be smaller, likely to focus more on individual applications and small system enhancements than structural changes.”
Manage portfolios: Apple Card users should currently view status information in System Preferences or use the Apple Card website. With a comprehensive wallet app on macOS, you can easily keep tabs on your transactions and pay off your balance.
Adiós a photo booth: In exchange for Photo Booth, which has been part of macOS for over a decade without much change. “Monterey” offers a “Memoji Studio”, like the version of this generation of photo booth effects.
Fitness classes + on Mac: Apple currently allows Fitness + subscribers to take their classes on iPad or Apple TV and Fitness + on macOS would be the natural extension of the proposal.
Simplified factors: With Apple Authenticator, users can connect their preferred web service accounts in the Keychain app on their Mac using Touch ID for authentication.
By logging in with this service Mac will automatically generate a passcode just by pressing your fingerprint. No one except the service you’re signing in to sees your two-factor code, and since it requires your fingerprint to generate a code, there’s no way someone else can enter.
More actionable notifications: Con Monterey, could have a new notifications icon in the center of the menu bar. The action center can appear in the center of the screen so that users don’t miss any important alerts.
In anticipation of what Apple has to offer this year, the concepts of its hardware and software occupy the creativity of the firm’s designers. Thanks to this we have already seen some interesting concepts of the iPhone 13 or the possible function of glucose detection in watchOS 8.
