Major updates include Safari update which makes it, according to the company, the fastest browser on the planet. This means that depending on the benchmark you can expect as much as 80% faster performance than Google Chrome.
Another big update is heading to Photos app. The new app includes updated organization and editing tools, a new side bar, and filtering option. The filtering gives you a faster search based on keywords, favorites, and media type. The app also has an automatic face recognition.
High Sierra also brings the first time ever a native VR support. The Industrial Light & Magic team demoed the feature with HTC Vive and Star Wars content. The new macOS uses the new Metal 2 graphics platform to render high quality VR in 90 frames per second.
There are also updates to many apps, including the Mail app, as well as the underlying file system, which has been now updated to a faster and more modern APFS.
High Sierra is available right now to developers willing to try the beta. All beta tester will get the update later this month through the beta tester program and the final version will ship free for all Sierra compatible Macs later on this fall.
