Shortcuts is about to drag Mac automation back into the future.
In macOS 12 Monterey, Apple brings the iOS automation system Shortcuts to the Mac. You’ll still be able to use good old AppleScript and bad old Automator, but from now on, automating apps on your Mac will be all about Shortcuts.
This is fantastic news for pretty much everyone. So, what makes Shortcuts so good, why is Apple adding an iOS feature to the more powerful Mac, and what will you be able to do that you couldn’t before?
