In this segment from Mac Geek Gab 875, John F Braun, our Special Guest Dave Mark, and I discuss what’s new in Mac OS Monterey including: Shortcuts, Safari Tabs, Airplay to Mac, and Low Power Mode
On Monday the team behind Pixelmator Pro announced that its Mac app will integrate with the upcoming Shortcuts app on macOS Monterey.
As we have now learned, users will require an M1 Mac to get all of the features coming in macOS Monterey. Oliver Haslam at iMore thinks that by allowing users and journalists to work this out, instead of properly announcing itself, Apple missed a big opportunity to talk up its own silicon. I rather agree.
What if Apple had made a point out of the M1 Macs getting the full feature set? What if Apple had someone stand on its virtual stage and say “because M1 is so powerful, and thanks to its Neural Engine, we were able to take macOS Monterey a step further on new Macs.” What if someone had rolled out the red carpet, shown the new features off on a bright orange M1 iMac, and pointed out just why the M1 is so great? The whole message would be different. Then, the M1 would be the hero of the piece, flexing its muscle to go above and beyond. Now, it’s the villain as it rips features from Intel’s cold, dead hands.
macOS Monterey has a recording indicator in the Control Panel and a new camera indicator light for when an app has access to a Mac’s mic.
A number of features set to be rolled out with macOS Monterey will not work on Apple devices running on an Intel chip.
