Ahead of its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) scheduled for June 3, Apple is working on bringing two of its operating systems (OS), macOS and iOS, closer together by introducing several useful iPhone features to its line of MacBooks.

With the introduction of macOS 10.15 and iOS 13, the iPhone-maker is expected to unveil similar features like Siri Shortcuts, Screen Time and more on its laptops and smartphones, 9To5Mac reported on Friday.

The new version of macOS — 10.15, which has been under development for nearly two years now, would include support for Siri Shortcuts — , a feature introduced in iOS 12 that lets users create custom voice shortcuts for actions that can be executed in apps.

Another major feature from iOS 12 that is coming to the Mac with macOS 10.15 is Screen Time — that allows users to see how much time they spend on apps and limits the amount of time that can be spent on a specific app or category of apps, such as social media. Pixabay

It is also likely that the Shortcuts app — that works with Contacts, Calendar, Maps and other iPhone apps using over 300 built-in actions — would be made available on macOS.

“According to sources, engineers are also working on bringing the assistant on macOS closer to its iOS counterpart by porting over features such as the ability to set timers and alarms and ask about air quality, currently unavailable on the Mac,” the report added.

After rolling out iOS 13 for iPhones and watchOS 6 for Apple Watch Series, the iPhone maker is expected to unfold iOS 13.1 with CPU throttling feature to iPhone XR and iPhone XS.

Apple first admitted it throttled CPUs on older iPhones in 2017 and the iPhone maker was accused of artificially slowing down devices. To do away with this, the company also offered discounted battery replacements to users with some iPhone models, The Verge has reported.

Newer iPhone models have more advanced power-monitoring hardware, which will reduce the impact of throttling.

“iPhone 8 and later use a more advanced hardware and software design that provides a more accurate estimation of both power needs and the battery’s power capability to maximize overall system performance,” Apple wrote on its support page.

“As a result, the impacts of performance management may be less noticeable on iPhone 8 and later. Over time, the rechargeable batteries in all iPhone models will diminish in their capacity and peak performance and will eventually need to be replaced,” the company added.

OS 13.1 will be released on September 24. It will bring several features that were avoided for the initial iOS 13 release, including automated Siri Shortcut actions, a share ETA feature in Apple Maps, and data separation for enterprise devices, The Verge reported.
