I’m loving the macOS Ventura + iOS 16 updates. ❤️🤓
I realize not everyone reading this is a Mac person (feel free to skip down), but I have to share some of the really cool features Apple added in the latest macOS Ventura and iOS 16 updates.
The Continuity Camera feature is so well done! It allows you to use your iPhone as a webcam. Why would you do this? Because the quality is years ahead of anything you’re probably using. I’ve tinkered with third-party apps in the past, but there were always some annoyances. No more! Everything works fluidly now. So much so that my brother and I are both now using our iPhones as webcams daily. (Here is an excellent gooseneck mount. Belkin also has some MagSafe ones). 📱
- You can now effortlessly hand off Facetime calls from your phone to your Mac or vice versa without interrupting the call. This is so nice for family calls; already using it.
Stage Manager is now available on Mac. If you’ve used an iPad before, then you’re probably used to this. It’s basically an easy window manager on the side. It’s pretty cool.
More AirPods controls are now available in macOS. Control everything from the case charging sound to noise control. 🎧️
- They’ve finally redesigned the system settings area to match the design of the rest of the OS. Looks great now.
