Apple on Monday released macOS Sierra 10.12.1, the first update to the macOS Sierra operating system, which debuted on September 20. The new update release follows a month of beta testing by developers and public beta testers.
macOS Sierra users can download and install the new update by visiting the Mac APp Store and clicking the “Update” tab.
The macOS Sierra 10.12.1 update offers little in the way of outward changes, instead offering iPhotos support for the new iPhone 7 Plus Portrait feature, which was introduced in iOS 10.1, also released to the public on Monday. The update also features bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as features for use with the next-generation MacBook Pro models that will debut later this week.
The macOS Sierra 10.12.1 Update:
- Adds an automatic smart album in Photos for Depth Effect images taken on iPhone 7 Plus
- Improves the compatibility of Microsoft Office when using iCloud Desktop and Documents
- Fixes an issue that may prevent Mail from updating when using a Microsoft Exchange account
- Fixes an issue that caused text to sometimes paste incorrectly when using Universal Clipboard
- Improves reliability of Auto Unlock with Apple Watch
- Improves security and stability in Safari
Apple also released updates for iOS 10.1, tvOS 10.0.1, and watchOS 3.1 on Monday.
