#1662: New Macs, 12 top OS features for 2023, vertical tabs in Web browsers, watchOS 9.5.1

Apple’s whirlwind WWDC keynote led off with a new 15-inch M2 MacBook Air, new M2 Max and M2 Ultra models of the Mac Studio, and the long-awaited Mac Pro with Apple silicon—read on for the details for the Macs that mark the end of the Intel era at Apple. After that, the keynote segued into previewing features we can look forward to later this year in iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS Sonoma, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17. Adam Engst shares the 12 features he found most interesting. What you won’t find in this issue is coverage of Apple’s Vision Pro “spatial computer,” due early next year starting at $3499. We need more time to ponder the implications before committing our thoughts to print. In the here-and-now, Adam also looks at vertical tab support in a wide range of Web browsers and gives a curt nod to the poorly described watchOS 9.5.1. Notable Mac app releases this week include 1Password 8.10.7, Quicken 7.1, DEVONthink 3.9.1, Audio Hijack 4.2, BusyCal 2023.2.3 and BusyContacts 2023.2.1, and Camo Studio 2.0.3.

Though none are luring him away from Arc, he runs down the options in Brave, Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Orion, Safari, SigmaOS, and Vivaldi. So many browsers!
