Even if you ignore the features that don’t apply to music production, there is still a lot they’ve improved for us. Many I consider essential…
- Bug fixes, including some major ones where audio interfaces would crash T2 macs
- Voice Memos app for recording quick ideas
- Major upgrades/features in Logic Pro, these are sometimes possible thanks to low-level changes in the OS
- Dark Mode and TrueTone display support for working late at night
- Finder and Spotlight search improvements for managing many files
- APFS support for smarter, smaller(compressed), and faster data management on the drive
- etc, etc, etc
The list gets stupid long if you consider non-music oriented users. Just because you don’t need these features, and happy with the OS you’re on, doesn’t mean others don’t need these things.
The phrasing “churning out” implied a displeasure with the rate of releases, and frankly didn’t seem like an honest question, but there’s your honest answer.
My only gripe of the last few years is the death of 32bit, without a good way to wrap those 32bit plugins, apps, into 64bit runtime. Though… it’s a completely rational change. Nobody should be writing 32bit apps any more. However, some of us are nursing old plugins along that haven’t been updated yet.
