Iphone 15 Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Of course, that won’t stop Apple from working on the next generation of iPhone behind closed doors at Apple Park.

The question is, what should you expect from Apple’s next-generation iPhone 15? While it’s early days, here’s all there is to know so far, from release date and pricing speculation to early rumours about the specs and features we think the phones will include.

Learn more about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro if you’re more interested in the current iPhone line-up.

When will the iPhone 15 be released?

Apple tends to update its iPhone range on a yearly basis with a pretty predictable schedule, which means we should expect the iPhone 15 to appear sometime in September 2023.

Setting aside the delayed release of the iPhone 12 due to the pandemic, Apple has favoured September reveals for its flagship iPhone range since the release of the iPhone 5 back in 2012.

If you can’t wait that long, take a look at where to buy the iPhone 14 range.

There were reports from mid-January 2023 that the iPhone 15 entered trial production at Foxconn in China, giving manufacturers and Apple plenty of time to iron out any manufacturing issues before release later this year. It’s worth noting that this was around two weeks earlier than usual, giving Apple a few extra weeks to iron out issues and secure plenty of stock in time for launch.


How much will the iPhone 15 cost?

While the iPhone 14 range matched the pricing of the iPhone 13 range in the US, the same can’t be said in regions like the UK, where the standard iPhone 14 is £70 more expensive, and the iPhone 14 Pro comes in at an extra £150 compared to last year.

iPhone 14: From $799/£849

iPhone 14 Plus: From $899/£949

iPhone 14 Pro: From $999/£1,099

iPhone 14 Pro Max: From $1,099/£1,199

The question is, should we expect the same with the iPhone 15? Of course, it’s far too early to say for sure, but Apple tends to keep the pricing at the same rough level – though currency fluctuations could see price increases like those in the UK this year.

An anonymous Weibo leaker has claimed that a price hike will apply to the Pro models, to increase the gap between them and the regular phones, though doesn’t offer any specific pricing.

By contrast, leaker LeaksApplePro claims the price hike could be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Ultra, rumoured to be the new name for the Pro Max . The Ultra could apparently start at an increased $1,299 in the US, a price hike of $200, though the leaker does note that Apple is considering a softer jump to $1,199.

One complicating element here is whether Apple is re-branding the Pro Max to the Ultra, which would give it more of an excuse to up the price.

Some believe that Apple will adopt the Ultra name in a bid to further separate it from the rest of the iPhone range, much in the same way that the Apple Watch Ultra is above and beyond what’s offered from the standard Apple Watch Series 8. That could match up with the price hike rumour above.

However, Mark Gurman has since reported on Bloomberg that the Ultra will be a fifth iPhone model, sitting above both the Pro and Pro Max in the range, but that if so it wouldn’t be introduced until next year’s range. “Internally, the company has discussed doing just that,” he writes, “potentially in time for the 2024 iPhone release.”

What to expect from the iPhone 15 specs

While we’re still quite some time away from seeing the next generation iPhone, that hasn’t stopped the ol’ rumour mill from churning. In fact, if early reports are to be believed, there could be some big changes in store for the entire iPhone 15 line-up.

More power

This one’s an easy guess – it happens every year after all.

We’re expecting Apple to unveil a new A17 Bionic chip to power the Pro models, while upgrading the regular models to last year’s A16 Bionic.

Simultaneously, market analysts TrendForce report that Apple will “bump up the capacity and specifications of the DRAM solutions featured in the next generation of the iPhone that is scheduled for release this year.”

That means more RAM, and faster performance. The report doesn’t specify which phones will get a bump, but previously the company had reported that the iPhone 15 Pro will jump from 6GB of RAM up to 8GB, so that’s still the best guess.

Another possible Pro perk comes from leaker Unknownz21, shared via MacRumors, who found an antennae diagram that appears to reveal that the Pro models will be getting an upgrade to the faster and more reliable Wi-Fi 6E standard this year, while the two cheaper phones won’t. That won’t matter to you too much unless you have a Wi-Fi 6E router – or regularly connect to one at work, perhaps – but it is an important bit of future-proofing Apple is already behind the competition on, and it looks like only the Pro models are catching up.

A refreshed design

The iPhone 14 range certainly looks premium, but the same could be said of the near-identical iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, which is to say that it has been a few years since Apple updated the design of its smartphone range – but that could change with the iPhone 15.

The rumour originated via leaker ShrimpApplePro, who took to Twitter to claim that the iPhone 15 Pro phones will have titanium sides, a serious upgrade even compared to the stainless steel finish of the iPhone 14 Pro range.

That’s not the only design change rumoured though; ShrimpApplePro also suggests that the back edge of the sides of the phone will be rounded, allowing the frame to curve into the rear of the phone that “will create a really beautiful edge transition from the back to the camera bump”.

9to5Mac also obtained first CAD renders of the 15 Pro, and since more detailed, high-res renders, and they reveal all of the above and more. We can see the new titanium finish, subtle curved corners, the long-rumoured USB-C port, and an updated button design.

We also see a thinner display bezel – the thinnest in any phone yet according to leaker Ice Universe, at 1.55mm – and what the site thinks is this year’s special edition colour for the Pro models: – a deep, dark red, which you can see at the end of the slideshow below.

We’ve also heard that the regular models will get a new green finish option, and that the two Pros will once again have a frosted effect to set them apart from the standard versions.

One element that’s proven a little complicated is the button design. At first many leakers thought Apple was re-designing the phones’ volume buttons, as you can see in the new single volume button in the above renders, believed to use haptic tech to provide feedback.

That no longer looks to be happening, as we explain below. What is happening is the addition of a new button to the Pro models, a so-called ‘Action’ button, which may be programmable by users. You can still see that in this updated 15 Pro render from 9to5Mac, which has returned to the old volume buttons.

Finally, if you want to see the possible designs in motion, MacRumors managed to get hold of four dummy models – one for each model in the range – made by an unnamed case maker.

The dummies aren’t real phones, and don’t function. They also don’t really reveal anything that we didn’t already know, but are a good look at what might be coming later this year.

Not-so solid crew

So what’s going on with those volume buttons then? Leakers have long agreed that Apple was introducing new solid-state volume buttons on the 15 Pro and Pro Max, which would provide haptic feedback to users instead of actual moving parts.

However, the ever-reliable Ming-Chi Kuo has thrown some water over those flames. He wrote in April 2023 that due to “unresolved technical issues” the solid-state buttons were being ditched, and that the Pro models will ship with the same old physical buttons we know and love.

That’s been all-but confirmed by a shareholder letter from Cirrus Logic, the company long-believed to be supplying the haptic hardware. The company told investors that “a new product that we mentioned in previous shareholder letters as being scheduled for introduction this fall is no longer expected to come to market as planned,” which seems an awful lot like a veiled reference to the iPhone 15 line. The phones are still coming of course, but now without the Cirrus tech inside.

If that’s true, hopefully Apple can refine the tech and introduce it with the iPhone 16 series next time around.

Note that this only applies to the new haptic volume buttons – leaks still suggest that the iPhone 15 Pro models will be getting a whole new ‘Action’ button above the two volume controls – that hasn’t gone anywhere.

Dynamic Island for all

The Dynamic Island – that is, the redesigned Face ID cut-out – of the iPhone 14 Pro is easily one of its stand-out features, but it might not be a Pro exclusive for long.

According to display industry insider Ross Young, Apple intends to bring the redesigned Dynamic Island system to the entire iPhone 15 range next year.

We can see that in CAD renders for the phones shared by 9to5Mac. Here it is seen in the regular iPhone 15, though the site also shows it in the larger 15 Plus.


Replying to a tweet on the subject in September 2023, Young states that “Dynamic Island expected on standard models on the 15,” though those hoping for a jump to 120Hz may be disappointed, as he claimed that the “supply chain can’t support it.”

Yes, Dynamic Island expected on standard models on the 15. Still not expecting 120Hz/LTPO on standard models as supply chain can’t support it.

— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) September 18, 2023

Instead, Young expects the 120Hz LTPO display tech to make an appearance on the standard models in 2024, presumably with the iPhone 16.

Young has provided an impressive number of display-related leaks over the past few years – he was among the first to tease three sizes of Apple Watch, and was on the money with Apple’s Dynamic Island the first time around – so he’s certainly a source worth paying attention to.

It’s also worth noting that Apple leaker Mark Gurman agrees with Young’s prediction, noting in a January 2023 edition of his Power Up! newsletter that both standard models of iPhone 15 are set to get the Dynamic Island upgrade later this year.

Leaker ShrimpApplePro believes in Dynamic Island for all too, also adding that all the phones in the series will get a slightly curved bezel around the screen – so while the display itself will be flat, the very edges will have a slight curvature.

There may be other upgrades in store for the Pro models, with leaker @chunvn8888 reporting that those phones are in development with new Samsung M13 panels – though with no indication of what specs those screens might have, it doesn’t give us a whole lot to go on.

The switch to USB-C

Apple has fought off switching to USB-C on its iPhone range for years despite doing so across its iPad range, though with mounting pressure from the EU with a new law that’ll force smartphone makers to switch to USB-C by 27 December 2024, it seems Apple is finally giving in – though it’s not particularly happy about it.

Discussing the new law in an interview with the Wall Street Journal in October 2023, Greg Joswiak, senior VP of worldwide marketing at Apple, conceded defeat.

“Governments get to do what they’re going to do and obviously we’ll have to comply, we have no choice,” he said when asked about the new ruling.

We think we’ve now seen photographic evidence of that, thanks to the below photo originally shared (but since deleted) by URedditor on Twitter. We see what’s clearly a USB-C port built into a brushed metal frame – and the leaker adds that they believe USB-C will be found on every iPhone 15 model, and not just the Pros.

There is speculation that Apple could only ship USB-C-enabled models to countries in the EU – it sells an e-SIM-specific variant of the iPhone 14 in the US, so it’s not an alien concept – but it’s likely that it’ll simply make the switch worldwide to prevent charging confusion among different models.

Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that he believes all of this year’s new iPhones will adopt USB-C (suggesting the same approach worldwide) but adds a fun wrinkle: only the Pro and Max will support high speed data transfer equivalent to USB 3.2 or faster, with the two regular models restricted to the same USB 2.0 speeds that Lightning was limited to. Most people won’t be moving enough data over USB-C to notice, but it’s an odd spec to skimp on.

Along similar lines, one report on Chinese social media Weibo suggests that Apple will build an authenticator chip into the iPhones’ USB-C ports which could be used to limit performance or restrict functionality with USB-C cables and devices that haven’t themselves been certified by Apple.

That wouldn’t be unheard of, as the company basically already does the same thing with Lightning – but that was before the EU ruling. In fact, German newspaper Die Zeit reports that EU Industry Commissioner Thierry Breton has already warned Apple that any attempt to artificially restrict USB-C performance would not meet the requirements of the new law, and that such devices “will not be allowed on the EU market.”

Improved cameras

While the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max saw significant gains in the camera department with the introduction of a new 48Mp sensor, the vanilla iPhone 14 shipped with the same 12Mp snapper as the iPhone 13. That’s all set to change with the iPhone 15 if rumours are to be believed.

According to analyst Jeff Pu, Apple is planning to introduce the same main 48Mp sensor as the iPhone 14 Pro range to the standard iPhone 15 and 15 Plus. Considering the new main lens also brought with it quad-pixel tech, second-gen sensor-shift OIS, and impressive gains in low-light photography, it’s a welcome addition to the standard iPhone 15.

Of course, the Pro models need upgrades of their own. So far we’ve heard about a few key hardware upgrades here, though both seem to apply only to the Pro Max/Ultra, with the camera likely to be where Apple creates differentiation between the two models.

The first comes from the usually reliable Ice Universe, who claims the Ultra will adopt a new IMX903 image sensor for its main camera. This is is apparently a 1/1.14in sensor, making it the largest used yet in any iPhone. That should mean much better light capture, improving dynamic range in all photos but especially helping low-light.

Then again, rival leaker Tech_Reve has hinted that the new sensor won’t arrive until the 16 Pro Max, following up with a report that the 15 Pro Max will use the same IMX803 as the previous generation, so who knows?

We’ve heard a little more about the Ultra’s telephoto. Tech_Reve is again one of the players here, claiming the top iPhone 15 will have a telephoto with “variable zoom”, another first for iPhones.

Ming-Chi Kuo, analysts at TrendForce, and leaker URedditor have meanwhile all claimed the phone will be the only iPhone with a periscope zoom. TrendForce says this could go up to 10x zoom, though Kuo predicts a more moderate 6x zoom using a 12Mp sensor – still double the magnification of the current iPhone 14 Pro models.

This was later backed up by The Elec in January 2023, suggesting that Apple is sourcing OIS actuators for the periscope lens from LG Innotek and Jahwa Electronics, with the latter also said to be supplying components for Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S23 series.

Finally, LeaksApplePro believes that the iPhone 15 Ultra could also feature a dual front-facing camera, though doesn’t go into detail on its specs.


The iPhone 14 series launched in the US with a surprise omission: SIM card trays. The phones went eSIM-only for the American market, and speculation is now rife that the rest of the world will follow soon.

We don’t know what’s coming for sure, but French site iGen has reported that the iPhone 15 models will release in France without a physical SIM slot. And if that’s true, it will almost certainly be the same in the UK and the rest of Europe.

That doesn’t necessarily mean it will be true globally. While eSIM adoption is growing in the US and Europe, it’s been slower in some other markets, so it’s likely that Apple will stick with physical SIM trays in some regions for at least another year or two.

Faster wireless charging – everywhere

One small but significant change has been reported regarding the iPhone 15 series’ wireless charging.

According to the report, the new phones will support 15W wireless speeds – even on chargers that aren’t MagSafe-certified.

The current models charge at 7.5W speeds on most Qi chargers, but will only ramp up to 15W on official MagSafe devices. Apparently going forwards, the phones will be able to hit the max speed on any official Qi charger that’s capable of delivery 15W of power.

The move might sound a little un-Apple, but it makes sense when you consider that the company is one of the contributors to the next-generation Qi standard, which is partly based on Apple’s MagSafe tech.

We’ll continue to update this article as new rumours appear online, so check back frequently for all the latest details on Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15.

New Mac Pro 2023: Release Date, Specs & Price

Finally, four years after the 2023 model was unveiled, Apple has introduced a Mac Pro with Apple silicon inside. The new Mac Pro features the M2 Ultra combining the performance of Apple’s most powerful chip with the versatility of PCIe expansion. The Mac Studio has also been updated with the same M2 Ultra chip.

Apple said way back in June 2023 that it planned to transition all of its Macs to its own chips within two years. Whether this is interpreted as two years from June 2023, or two years from when Apple introduced the first M1 Mac: November 2023, Apple missed its deadline. As Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who seems to have some good sources, put it in a December 2023 Power On newsletter: Apple is “behind schedule”.

Well Apple seems to have caught up at last because the Mac Pro with Apple silicon is now here–and you can order one now for delivery on, or around, Tuesday June 13, 2023. This time there is no need to wait until the end of the year (as was the case after previous WWDC Mac Pro launches).

You can pre-order the new Mac Pro goes from Apple now.

New Mac Pro M2 Ultra price

There are two standard versions for the Mac Pro, a Tower and a Rack.

They are priced as follows:

Mac Pro Tower, M2 Ultra, 24-core CPU, 60-core GPU, 32-core Neural Engine, 64GB Unified Memory, 1TB storage: $6,999/£7,199

Mac Pro Rack, M2 Ultra, 24-core CPU, 60-core GPU, 32-core Neural Engine, 64GB Unified Memory, 1TB storage: $7,499/£7,699

That is in contrast to the Mac Studio, which starts at $1,999/£2,099 (was £1,999) for the M2 Max version, rises to $3,999/£4,100 (was £3,999) for the M2 Ultra version, and tops out at $7,999/£8,999 (was £7,999) if you fully spec it out.

There are also lots of build-to-order options including:

M2 Ultra, 24-core CPU, 76-core GPU for $1,000/£1,000 extra

128GB Unified Memory for $800/£800 extra

192GB Unified Memory for $1,600/£1,600 extra

8TB SSD for $2,200/£2,200 extra

So the ultimate Mac Pro could cost $12,299/£12,499.

New Mac Pro M2 Ultra design

Mac Pro mit Apple Silicon


The new Mac Pro doesn’t have a new design, but this is probably a good thing and it was expected that the new Mac Pro would look the same as the 2023 model.”

Maintaining the same design seems wise given the problems Apple encountered the last time it made the Mac Pro smaller. This design allows for PCIe expansion.

New Mac Pro M2 Ultra spec

Apple says the 2023 Mac Pro is up to 3x faster than the previous-generation Intel-based model, which can’t be hard, given that model is now four years old.

The new Mac Pro and the M2 Ultra Mac Studio have a lot in common. For example, they both share the same media engine, so both can play an unprecedented 22 streams of 8K ProRes video.

Inside the new Mac Pro with M2 Ultra.


New Mac Pro M2 Ultra expansion

One difference between the Mac Pro and Mac Studio models is the better selection of ports on the M2 Ultra Mac Pro, including eight build in Thunderbolt ports (six on the back and two on the top). This is also an improvement on the 2023 Mac Pro which had half that number.

There are also three USB-A ports, two higher-bandwidth HDMI ports (that support 8K resolution and up to 240Hz frame rates), two 10Gb Ethernet ports, and a headphone jack (which supports high-impedance headphones).

The Mac Pro for 2023 supports up to six Pro Display XDRs, and offers support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.

Nest Wifi Pro: Release Date, Price, Specs & Features

Quite a few details about the new routers were leaked ahead of its launch, which came with no fanfare whatsoever: Google simply added the Nest Wifi Pro to its web store.

Available in four colours: Snow, Linen, Fog and Lemongrass, you’ll be able to match your mesh Wi-Fi system to other Google devices such as the Pixel Buds Pro, Nest Doorbell (battery) and Pixel 7.

Unfortunately, that applies only in the US: in the UK the only option is Snow, and in Canada, it’s Snow and Fog.

How much does the Nest Wifi Pro cost?

1-pack: $199

2-pack: $299

3-pack: $399

You can buy a single Nest Wifi Pro for $199.99 / £189.99 / CA$269.99, but it makes more sense to opt for a 2-pack and 3-pack. These cost $299.99 and $399.99 respectively.

In the UK, there’s no two-pack, only a £379.99 three-pack. It’s the same in Canada where a three-pack is $529.99.

You can pre-order the devices immediately, and the begin shipping from the end of October. The exact release date varies by country, with US buyers receiving their Nest Wifi Pro from 24 October. Those in the UK can expect a delivery a couple of days after that, while in Canada the estimated delivery dates, according to Google’s website are the very end of October to the start of November.

We had wondered if Google would announced the Wifi Pro at the same time as it unveiled the Pixel 7 at its ‘MadeByGoogle’ event on 6 October, but it chose to launch it a day earlier.

What are the Nest Wifi Pro specs and features?

Design-wise the Wifi Pro units are oval and have a glossy plastic finish. Google says they’re made from 60% recycled materials going by weight.

And each unit weighs 450g and is 130mm tall, 117mm wide and 85mm deep.

You can expect up to 200m² coverage from each (2200 square feet), with the three-pack increasing that to – unsurprisingly – 600m² / 6600 square feet. You can add more routers if you need more coverage.


Here are the other key specs:

Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax)

2×2 (6GHz)

2×2 (5GHz)

2×2 (2.4GHz)

Up to 300 devices per network

Dual-core 64-bit ARM processor

1GB RAM, 4GB flash memory

WPA3 encryption

2x 1Gbps Ethernet ports per router

22.5W power consumption

1x 2m Ethernet cable supplied in the box

Matter support

Thread border router

The key upgrade compared to the existing Google Wifi is Wi-Fi 6E which uses the newly available 6GHz frequencies. These don’t have a huge effect on speed compared to 5GHz, but with so few devices using this spectrum, there’s much less interference which – until it gets congested – means better real-world performance.

Google says the Wifi Pro is up to 2x as fast as Wi-Fi 6 routers, but what it’s referring to there is that Wi-Fi 6E can use 160MHz wide channels, which many Wi-Fi 6 routers cannot: they are mostly limited to 80MHz, which means the top theoretical connection speed to any one device is half as fast.

In the real-world, though, any extra speed will be due to the lack of congestion on the 6GHz frequency that Wi-Fi 6E supports, but to use it you’ll need a phone, laptop or another device that also has Wi-Fi 6E.

The other big benefit is that the Nest Wifi Pro will support Matter – the newly released smart home standard – and will be a Thread border router. That means it will act as a hub for setting up and controlling Matter devices.

The Google Assistant isn’t integrated into the new routers, but there are some smart features.

Like previous Google mesh Wi-Fi systems, there’s automatic Wi-Fi speed optimisation, built in parental control (which doesn’t require a subscription), a guest network, and self-diagnosing of issues for automatic fixing of common Wi-Fi problems.

If you want to upgrade your old router right now, here are the best mesh Wi-Fi systems to buy.

En cuanto a gráficas, las configuraciones admiten la posibilidad de elegir diversas GPUs con la GeForce RTX 4070 como modelo tope de gama. 

Con esta premisa, estamos hablando de equipos con grandes dosis de movilidad, cuyo peso se mantiene por debajo de los 2,3 kilogramos, y que a su vez garantizan el máximo rendimiento.

¿Qué características tienen los nuevos portátiles Legion Slim?

La principal novedad que encontramos en la nueva familia Legion Slim es la incorporación del chip LA1 AI que impulsa el motor de inteligencia artificial Engine+ para optimizar el rendimiento y minimizar el ruido de los ventiladores de los equipos. Es algo que incorpora toda la nueva gama.

Por ejemplo, el chip LA, combinado con opciones de GPU de alto rendimiento como la GPU gráfica GeForce RTX 4070 para portátiles, permite al Lenovo Legion Slim 5i ofrecer un TDP de hasta 160 W, perfecto para los gamers que no quieren sacrificar potencia. 

También hay disponibles opciones de GPU de inferior potencia que reducen el grosor del chasis del portátil (hasta 19,7 mm en su punto más fino) pensando en aquellos jugadores que quieran un dispositivo más versátil en otras facetas de trabajo y equilibren la movilidad. con un peso inferior a los 2,3 kg.

Estos equipos también destacan por sus pantallas de 16 pulgadas con una relación de aspecto 16: 10. El panel WQXGA admite frecuencias de hasta 240 Hz y dispone de un nivel de brillo de 500 nits. 

Si deseas compaginar el juego con trabajo, el panel de 3,2K de 165 Hz VRR y 430 nits es otra gran opción con un 100 % de DCI-P3 pensando en aquellos usuarios que manejen aplicaciones de diseño y creatividad con una amplia gama de colores. 

La batería de estos modelos asciende a los 99 Wh, la más grande permitida en un dispositivo a la hora de desplazarse con ellos en los aviones. Garantiza hasta 10 horas de autonomía y mediante la carga rápida es posible completar el ciclo de carga en tan solo 80 minutos. 

El teclado de estos equipos se puede personalizar, tanto con teclas WASD intercambiables, como con la iluminación RGB por tecla, y también está disponible con retroiluminación blanca para aquellos que busquen una estética más discreta.

A diferencia de los Slim 7, los Slim 5 cuentan con una batería inferior de 80 Wh que ofrece una autonomía bastante razonable de 8 horas de uso, también con el soporte de la carga Super Rapid Charge para rendir al ciento por ciento en un tiempo récord. 

La ventaja es que a los modelos de 16 pulgadas, se le une un tercero con pantalla de 14 pulgadas, pensando en los usuarios que buscan una mayor movilidad y comodidad por su tamaño más compacto.

Macos 12 Monterey: New Features, Compatibility, Release Date

macOS 12 Monterey received its first preview during the WWDC21 keynote. The Mac software focuses on productive features, with a new Shortcuts app, Universal Control, AirPlay to Mac, Safari updates, and more. Here’s everything about Apple’s latest macOS update.

New features in macOS 12 Monterey

With the release of the macOS 11 Big Sur in 2023, Apple gave the Mac software a nice redesign. With a neo-skeuomorphic UI, macOS Big Sur introduced a new Control Center and Notification Center, revamped Safari and iMessage apps, and more.

Now, with macOS 12 Monterey, Apple is refining the Big Sur experience with a redesigned Safari, Universal Control feature, AirPlay to Mac, and much more.

Universal Control

macOS 12 Monterey brings Universal Control, which allows the user to easily use an iPad with a Mac, as the keyboard and mouse seamlessly move over to each device.

It’s possible, for example, to drag a Procreate logo on the iPad to a Final Cut project on the Mac. It uses Bluetooth beaconing, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi, and the iPad’s touchpad support to allow the devices to know they’re closer to one another.

Shortcuts app on macOS 12 Monterey

Apple called Shortcuts the future of automation on Mac, and the first steps in Monterey are part of a multi-year transition. Automator will continue to be supported in this release and Automator workflows can be imported into Shortcuts.

The app on the Mac looks similar to Shortcuts on the iPad. You can build new shortcuts, access existing shortcuts, and more. The Shortcuts app on the Mac also integrates with Spotlight, appears in Finder, supports multitasking, and increases with the Menu bar. 

FaceTime and SharePlay

FaceTime is receiving a lot of love from Apple with macOS 12 Monterey. The video call app will feature, for example, Spatial Audio. With this function, Apple says it creates a “sound field that helps conversations flow as easily as they do face to face.”

Another function available is Portrait mode in calls. With this on, you can blur your background and put the focus on yourself. It works exactly as it does on the iPhone camera.

With Voice Isolation mode it isolates your voice from all the other noises and with Wide Spectrum mode, you can hear anything that’s happening in your friend’s surroundings.

FaceTime is also receiving the Grid view feature and with a FaceTime link, you can invite friends into a FaceTime call with a web link on Windows and Android devices.

With SharePlay, here’s everything you can do:

Watch together: Bring TV shows and movies to your FaceTime call

Listen together: Share music with friends

Shared music queue: When listening together, anyone in the call can add songs to the shared queue

Share your screen: Bring web pages, app, and more into your conversation

Synced playback: Pause, rewind, fast-forward, or jump to a different scene while in perfect sync with everyone else

Smart volume: Dynamically responsive volume controls automatically adjust audio so you can hear your friends even during a loud scene or climactic chorus

Multiple device support: Connect over FaceTime on the iPhone while watching video on the Apple TV or listening to music on the HomePod

Connect through audio, video, and text: Access the group’s Message thread right from the FaceTime controls and choose the mode of communication that matches the moment

AirPlay to Mac

AirPlay to Mac lets your Mac be an AirPlay destination, so you can quickly play content from your iPhone on your Mac’s display.

For the first time, the Mac can be used as a speaker for multiform audio, just as the HomePod can. AirPlay works both wirelessly and wired using USB. A wired connection is useful when you want to ensure that there’s no latency or you don’t have access to Wi-Fi.

Redesigned Safari

Safari also received a major redesign with macOS 12 Monterey. Here are some of the functions coming to the new Safari:

Streamlined tab bar: The streamlined tab bar takes up less room on the page and adjusts to match the colors of each site, extending your web page to the edge of the window.

Tab groups: Intelligent Tracking Prevention now also prevents trackers from profiling you using your IP address.

Redesigned tabs: Tabs have a rounder and more defined appearance, making them easier to work with. Tabs fluidly adapt as you add more, shrinking or stretching to fit the page.

iCloud Private Relay: iCloud Private Relay is a service that lets you connect to virtually any network and browse with Safari in an even more secure and private way. It ensures that the traffic leaving your device is encrypted so no one can intercept and read it. 

Safari’s new design caused a lot of controversies, which Apple slowly addressed, although it will remain with a new UI.

macOS 12.1 features

Here’s everything new with macOS 12.1:


SharePlay is a new way to share synchronized experiences in FaceTime with content from the Apple TV app, Apple Music, and other supported apps

Shared controls give everyone the ability to pause, play, rewind or fast forward

Smart volume automatically lowers the audio of a movie, TV show, or song when you or your friends speak

Screen sharing lets everyone on a FaceTime call look at photos, browse the web, or help each other out

Apple Music Voice Plan

Apple Music Voice Plan is a new subscription tier that gives you access to all songs, playlists, and stations in Apple Music using Siri

Just Ask Siri suggests music based on your listening history and likes or dislikes

Play it Again lets you access a list of your recently played music


Memories has been redesigned with a new interactive interface, new animation and transition styles, and multiple image collages

New Memory types include additional international holidays, child-focused memories, trends over time, and improved pet memories


Communication safety setting gives parents the ability to enable warnings for children when they receive or send photos that contain nudity

Safety warnings contain helpful resources for children when they receive photos that contain nudity

Siri and Search

Expanded guidance in Siri, Spotlight, and Safari Search to help children and parents stay safe online and get help with unsafe situations

Apple ID

Digital Legacy allows you to designate people as Legacy Contacts so they can access your iCloud account and personal information in the event of your death

TV App

Store tab lets you browse, buy, and rent movies and TV Shows all in one place

This release also includes the following enhancements for your Mac:

Hide My Email is available in the Mail app for iCloud+ subscribers to create unique, random email addresses

Stocks allow you to view the currency for a ticker and see year-to-date performance when viewing charts

Reminders and Notes now allow you to delete or rename tags

macOS 12.2 features

Different from macOS 12.1, macOS 12.2 didn’t bring lots of new features. This software update includes a security fix for a serious Safari flaw along with a few other improvements and fixes.

The Safari exploit can leak users’ browsing history as well as Google account IDs. Another fix with macOS 12.2 improves scrolling in Safari with ProMotion on the new MacBook Pro. There’s also a new, native Apple Music app.

macOS 12.3 features

macOS 12.3 finally brings the long-awaited Universal Control feature. Here’s everything new with this update:

Universal Control;

40+ fresh emoji;

New, non-binary Siri American voice;

Dynamic head tracking for Spatial Audio;

Add notes to saved passwords in Safari;

Support for the PS5 DualSense adaptive trigger;

 ScreenCaptureKit framework for “high-performance screen recording.”

macOS 12.4 features

macOS 12.4 brings small improvements compared to the previous versions of the operating system:

Apple Podcasts includes a new setting to limit episodes stored on your Mac and automatically delete older ones

Support for Studio Display Firmware Update 15.5, available as a separate update, refines camera tuning, including improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing.

macOS 12.5 features

macOS Monterey 12.5 includes enhancements, bug fixes, and security updates.

The TV app adds the option to restart a live sports game already in progress and pause, rewind, or fast-forward

Fixes an issue in Safari where a tab may revert back to a previous page

macOS 12.5 is likely the latest macOS 12 Monterey update before Apple releases macOS 13 Ventura.
