And focus was placed on major improvements made to the Safari browser, with Apple keen to emphasize the benchmark performance of this software.
Safari comes with solid improvements too, being touted as the fastest browser that you can get today (at least on a Mac). It's not the kind of feature that Federighi can demo onstage, but he did show how much a few common actions would speed up. It offers plenty of new features.
Today's announcement brought big updates to Photos, including the ever-requested face recognition syncing across all devices. For instance, there's now a persistent sidebar, plus a new view of your photos in chronological order with a filter for key words, to pick out specific photographs.
But the coolest feature is the new built-in editing tools.

Apple unveiled the latest version of its Mac operating system at the June 5 WWDC in San Jose, California, and there are plenty of updates to get excited about.
On desktop, Safari also accounts for less than 5% of all internet users, according to NetMarketShare, while Google's Chrome captures close to 60% of browser activity. Once you're done with that, you're good to go with High Sierra, and updates will come through the App Store. Safari is adding autoplay blocking, so loud videos don't start playing without your approval.
The new default files system, imaginatively called Apple Files, makes handling files all the better in MacOS. The video standard has also been changed to the H.265/HVEC, which is better suited for 4K output. Hardware-accelerated H.265/HEVC video will be integrated across the operating system and Apple's apps. The Apple Music app will also show what your friends are listening to.
One of the biggest changes is a heap of new support for VR technologies. Metal, described as "the fastest, most efficient way to tap into GPU power on the Mac", is onboard as well. "macOS High Sierra delivers important forward-looking technologies and new opportunities for developers wanting to tap into the power of machine learning and create immersive VR content on the Mac", said Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering. Apple will make the finished version available as a free download for all Macs that support Sierra this fall. This stops those annoying adverts and promoted videos that play as soon as you arrive on a website, soemthing we all know and loathe.
The final release of macOS 10.13 High Sierra will be available Autumn 2017. As a result, High Sierra is all about improving hardware acceleration through a new Metal API, using machine learning techniques to improve the Photos app, and implementing a new file system that is at least three decades overdue.
