Virtual reality support officially coming to MacBooks and MacOS

Apple says Safari is the world's fastest desktop browser with High Sierra; it's now 80 percent faster than Chrome, using the newest form of Javascript.

The browser also comes with a security tool called intelligent tracking prevention, which protects your privacy.

Mail, meanwhile, is said to require less space to store your emails, with Apple claiming a 35 percent reduction here, a split-view viewing mode for composing emails, and improvements to searches. More and more advertisers are using trackers to keep tabs on a user's search history in order to serve up more targeted ads on the webpages they visit.

Editing tools have also been improved, making it easier than ever to improve your photos. The information you input will automatically sync across all your Apple devices. Instead of being a major update, this one is an iterative one and is focused on refining features that Cupertino introduced at the previous WWDC conference.

High Sierra is set to receive several software packages that should help foster VR development on MacOS. In a pre-recorded demo played at WWDC, a system running Sierra took several seconds to duplicate large video files, while High Sierra completed the task instantly.

Apple has announced that SteamVR will now be available in beta form on its Mac computers. With High Sierra, the developers will be able to create interactive and immersive VR experience on Mac which will work with Unreal Engine and HTC Vive for VR. Your best bet is to use a MacBook which runs Metal 2 on MacOS High Sierra. So, today, we catch a glimpse of macOS High Sierra, which is shaping up to be a pretty impressive upgrade over its predecessor, macOS Sierra.

Developers will get early access to a beta version of High Sierra starting on Monday, while a public beta will be available later this month.

High Sierra will be out this fall for free, and it allows the iMac to be a "great platform for virtual reality content creation".

Which as the name suggests builds on the current operating system Sierra, by expanding its features and functionality and again bringing it further closer to the iOS mobile device operating system.
