macossierraIn case you may have missed it: Apple has launched a new operating system for the Mac, called MacOS Sierra. Mac is the abbreviation for Macintosh, the name of a series of desktop and notebook computers manufactured and sold by Apple.

The Mac has grown in popularity over the last few years amongst consumers and in the business community. The operating system (OS) for a Mac computer is called Mac OS. Each new version of the operating system receives a new name for example Mac OS X Mountain Lion and Mac OS X Yosemite. The latest OS for the Mac is called MacOS Sierra.

Beautiful designs and user-friendly devices

Although Apple computers may seem a little different from PCs running the more widely used Windows operating system, they are still very user-friendly. If you are a first-time user on a Mac, it may take some time to learn basic operations, but before you know it you will soon feel comfortable using it. Along with its line of desktop computers and laptops, Apple has also produced the very popular iPad and iPhone. These products are famous for their beautiful design and user-friendly, intuitive interface.
