Type in an example amount and you’ll immediately be told what that is in Sterling (based presumably on what’s set as your native currency in the Language & Region pane of System Preferences), and then when the window folds down to show more results, you’ll see Euros, Yen and so on.

2. Want to run windows on your Mac? Well sometimes it’s handy, whether to play the latest games or run some niche piece of software that has no Mac equivalent. You can either run Windows alongside macOS with a virtualization app such as VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop or VirtualBox, or partition your hard disk to install Windows on to run it full-bore on your hardware using Boot Camp Assistant (in your Utilities folder).



Do you know you can also Sign PDF right in Mail, create custom keyboard shortcuts, Share your passwords and credit card details across other apple devices and even use the split view to work on several things a the same time?
