Apple macOS 10.13 High Sierra features

A new file system

Last year, Apple announced a new Apple File System (APFS) for iOS with the iOS 10.3 update. Now, the new file system is also coming to the Mac with High Sierra.

The new default file system brings an advanced 64-bit architecture and a responsive design to cut down on the time it takes to do common tasks. APFS also brings some heavy-duty security, including built‑in encryption, crash‑safe protections, and simplified data backup on the go.

Better Photos

Photos app includes a better organization, looped Live Photos, and new Memories categories. It’ll also be easier to identify who’s in your photos with more accurate People identification and cross-device syncing for albums.

But the coolest feature may be a set of new built-in editing tools like a curves palette for fine-tuning color and contrast, a selective color dropper to home in a specific hue, and new filters that will make your photos fit for an art gallery.

Speedier, smarter Safari

Safari in Sierra tells you which tab is playing audio, in High Sierra, it will shut the video down before it can start. Autoplay blocking will detect which sites are delivering unwanted videos, and then press the pause button for you. See how it works.

A new system of intelligent tracking will use machine learning to identify prying advertising trackers that track your online behavior and remove the cross-site tracking data they leave behind.

Smoother video

High Sierra a High-Efficiencyciency Video Coding (H.265). The new system compresses video up to 40 percent more the H.264. Under the new codec, videos will stream smoother and take up less space, both of which will make experience much more pleasant.

Next-level Metal

Metal 2 will bring 10 times the draw call throughput that Metal delivered, enabling graphics that are far more robust while adding external GPU support for hard-core gamers.
