Here’s how to get the most out of your new MacBook Pro with macOS High Sierra (available starting September 25th). Now that Siri is integrated with High Sierra, talking to your MacBook Pro can make interactions much easier and faster. You can get quick access to change system settings like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and check weather and even find files without clicking through folders. To activate Siri, go to System Preferences, click Siri, then check Enable Siri. Once you’ve woken up Skynet, I mean Siri, you can access her by holding down Command & Space or using the Siri icon on the top right of your screen.

You can customize the Touch Bar on the higher end Macbook. If you wanted to add or remove Touch Bar items go to System Preferences, click on Keyboard, then Customize Control Strip and drag icons directly to or from strip to the screen. Once you are finished click done.

You can now rename groups of files all at once. First, highlight all of the files, either by dragging a box over all of them or hitting Command + A. Once highlighted, right click on one of the file names and click Rename items. This allows you to set a standard name structure for the group. No more nonsense file names!

Recently, Apple introduced a Split Screen feature in Mac OS, which is great for multitasking. To start it up, left click and hold on the green maximize button at the top left of any window. A shaded split will appear, allowing you to drag it to be positioned on the left or right side of your screen. Click a second window and the two will snap side by side.

With Screen Sharing you can the tech support for friends and family remotely over the internet. It is compatible with El Captain and newer (Sierra, High Sierra) macOSes. Just hit Command & Space and type in Screen Sharing. Enter the Apple ID of the person you want to contact. They’ll need to make sure their Screen Sharing is enabled under System Preferences in the Sharing pane. They will be asked to grant permission to view their screen, and they can also grant the ability to remotely control their mouse and keyboard. This will make helping friends or parents so much easier when you can’t be physically present with them and their Mac.

    They added high because somebody else decided to call the area near by to Sierra that name a long time ago, Apple just went along with it. It's the same with the cat names etc..
