Apple introduces macOS Mojave with Dark Mode, desktop Stacks and more

In fact, this happens to be the initial fruits of a continued effort on the part of Apple to introduce more of iOS apps to Mac. And explore a completely redesigned Mac App Store.

What are the biggest new macOS Mojave features?

"Here Apple is allowing users to see when tracking is enabled on a website - actually being able to visually see that with a prompt is breaking new ground".

One of the exciting features for MacOS' latest update was the addition of a lot of key iOS tools, which users have been practically begging for in their desktops. That includes Xcode Dark Mode, for instance.

For starters, a dark mode is finally made available to change the bright color scheme of macOS to a darkened color scheme, this will be applied to all default Mac apps such as Mail, Safari, Messages, Maps, Calendars and Photos.

Apple has released a new App Store Connect app for iOS, appearing to replace the ageing iTunes Connect app that allows developers to manage their applications submitted to the App Store. The update comes with a host of new features like interactive notifications, Walkie-Talkie style of communication, smarter Siri and more.

Nadal loses first French Open set for three years
Nadal , who turns 32 on Sunday, continued his bid for an 11th French Open title and 17th major by brushing aside Gasquet. In the other men's quarter-final, Juan Martin del Potro and Marin Cilic were locked at 5-5 in a first-set tiebreaker.

We’re Getting the Jared Leto Joker Movie Nobody Asked For
Similarly, it emerged last August that Warner Bros is also developing a Joker origin story without Leto. The news of Leto's Joker movie going forward all-but-confirms the strategy.

But a darker desktop won't be the only thing changing this fall when macOS officially launches. Stacks helps bring some easy sanity for those users who can't be bothered to be organised but would benefit regardless. This can clear the clutter of files on the desktop by a single click, including by time, date or tags.

Meanwhile, a new view in finder - Gallery View - will let users view an image of a file at the top of the screen, with the rest of your files placed in a strip below the main image. 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 objective. Also noteworthy, Apple says that it's working on a way for iOS apps to be ported to the Mac. Even Screenshots have been improved in Mojave with the introduction of a video capture. Besides, Apple also confirmed during WWDC 2018 that all existing iTunes purchases will receive Atmos sound-channel upgrades for free.

In light of recent privacy breach by social media giant Facebook, the new Mojave update will make it harder for social media sites from tracking users without permission.

≡ Safari now also presents simplified system information when users browse the web, preventing them from being tracked based on their system configuration.

Users now get new on-screen controls for easy access to every screenshot option and new video recording capabilities. Unlike Windows, it seems users of Apple software will see the dark theme more widespread than Windows apps are. The Developer Preview version of the new software version is already available to developers. Developers won't get access to these features until 2019, and users won't start seeing the benefits until sometime after.
