MacOS may be getting Siri Shortcuts and Apple ID Management with next update



According to 9to5Mac, Apple may be bringing a few iOS features to its MacOS 10.15 update, which is expected to be announced at this June’s WWDC. These features are said to include Siri Shortcuts and Screen Time, both of which debuted with last year’s iOS 12.

Siri Shortcuts, which allows users to create custom voice commands for actions that would be carried out in different apps, may be introduced via a MacOS Shortcuts app. And unlike the iOS app, the one coming to macOS may actually include system-wide support. This should allow developers of iPad apps to easily port their Shortcuts-enabled apps to Macs.

As with Screen Time, the feature that allows users to see how much time they’re spending in apps, Apple will be adding a new panel under System Preferences to access it. And finally Apple will be adding a new Apple ID management feature and iMessage effects to MacOS. The new Apple ID management settings will allow users to mange their Apple IDs from within the OS itself instead of having to go to the Apple website, much like on theniPhone.
