According to a report by 9to5Mac the patch contains some exciting new features. Above all, Apple’s Safari browser supports the 120 Hz ProMotion display of the current MacBook Pro (approx. 2,200 euros on Amazon) is finally complete, so that users can finally benefit from the smoother scrolling on websites that Apple has already demonstrated when presenting the MacBook Pro.
In addition, the Music app has been rewritten from the ground up to run completely natively on Macs with ARM chips.

Finally there a slew of security updateswhich, among other things, close a security hole that allowed malware to access the browser history.
