Apple unveiled the latest version of macOS at WWDC 2017 today, 10.13 High Sierra. The new update isn’t anything revolutionary but Apple added a few new features that highlight the update with what it’s calling “refinements.”

Among the refinements, Apple is putting extra focus on blocking ads with Safari with intelligent tracking prevention and auto play blocking. Apple claims the web will work the same way it has—with ads still being displayed—but user’s privacy will be protected.

Other updates arrived to Mail, Photos and Apple File System is replacing HFS. This will improve Mac performance by cutting down data transfer speeds, among other things.

Apple also took the wraps off Metal 2, which will be make it possible to access external graphics over Thunderbolt to external GPUs on Macs.

MacOS High Sierra is available today for developers and will be available to everyone later this fall as a free upgrade.
