If you enable Auto Capitalization, mac OS will automatically capitalize proper nouns and the first letter in every new sentence. Similarly, mac OS will automatically add a period every time you double-space.  

The options are usually disabled in default mode since most users can do the periods and capitalizations themselves. Nonetheless, you better have the options enabled to ensure that Mac OS Sierra closely follows your writing.
