With the upcoming release of macOS Sonoma, Apple has introduced a new feature that makes it incredibly easy to turn any website into a standalone app on your Mac. Say goodbye to the hassle of searching through bookmarks or navigating multiple tabs in Safari – creating web apps is now a breeze.

Creating a Web App in macOS Sonoma

To create a web app in macOS Sonoma, follow these steps:

  1. Open Safari on your Mac and visit the website you want to turn into an app—for example, appleinsider.com.
  2. Click the “Share” icon in Safari’s upper right corner, next to the plus sign.
  3. From the sharing options, select “Add to Dock.
  4. Give your new app a catchy and concise name.
  5. Click on “Add.”

That’s it! The web app will now appear in your Dock, ready for you to launch and access the full website experience.

Customization and Removal

If you want to remove the web app from the Dock, drag it away until a “Remove” label appears. Release the app, and it will be instantly removed from the Dock. However, you can still launch the app using Spotlight, Alfred, or any launcher app.

It’s Worth the Convenience

While the ability to create web apps is not entirely new, Apple’s integration in macOS Sonoma streamlines the process and makes it more accessible to users. Previously, third-party apps like Unite provided similar functionality, but Apple’s solution offers a more seamless experience.

macOS Sonoma’s official release is expected around September or October 2023. While the beta version is available for testing, waiting for the final version for optimal stability and performance is advisable.

In the meantime, you can download macOS Sonoma Beta DMG and test it on your system.
