Apple didn’t reveal any new MacBook Pros or iMacs at today’s iPhone-focused keynote, but the company’s next big software update for Macs finally got an official release date.

macOS Sierra will be available to all Mac owners as free update starting on September 20th, just one week after the launch of iOS 10, watchOS 3 and tvOS 10.

The huge update brings a number of new features to Macs, including support for Siri, unlocking via Apple Watch, better file syncing with iCloud, a universal clipboard and much more.
