Sierra brings a whole bunch of neat productivity features to the Mac, including tabs in apps, a Universal Clipboard that carries your copy/pastes between iPhone and your desktop, and a ton of new Siri tricks. 

For Apple Watch users, the update adds an automatic unlock feature that syncs your Mac with your smartwatch and unlocks your computer when you open it without requiring you to type in your password.
