Following a look at iOS 12, Apple‘s WWDC 2018 coverage continues, now introducing macOS Mojave. Pegged as “the world’s most advanced desktop operating system,” the latest version welcomes a new Dark Mode, Mac Apps, and Mac App Store.
Dark Mode awards your desktop with a darkened color scheme, ultimately placing a focus on user content. Apps such as Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar, and Photos all feature Dark Modes, as you can then toggle between a light and a dark desktop. A Dynamic Desktop function then automatically changes the desktop to coincide with the time of day.
Desktop and Finder
Stacks is all about eliminating clutter. The feature in turn automatically organizes files into separate groups. You can set Stacks to sort files based on date and tags as well.
Finder has also been updated, now featuring a never-before-seen Gallery View. Here, you can scan through files visually. In addition, you can run custom Automator Actions on files directly from Finder with Quick Actions.
News, Stocks, Voice Memos, and Home
For the first time ever, apps like News, Stocks, Voice Memos, and Home are available on Mac. You can follow your favorite publications from one app, control your HomeKit-enabled accessories via Home, and record Voice Memos for personal notes, interviews, meetings, and more, then access applicable files from your iOS devices.
As introduced with iOS 12, you can chat with multiple people by using Group FaceTime. Whether utilizing video or audio, additional parties can be added at any time.
Mac App Store
The Mac App Store has been completely redesigned. New and updated apps are highlighted in the Discover tab, while tabs for Create, Work, Play, and Develop aid in locating certain apps for a specific purpose.
