For starters, after a series of updates named after mountain ranges, Apple has been inspired by the Mojave desert, particularly during the nighttime. Here's a quick rundown of some of the key features.
This new update will bring suggestions to Siri. Third-party apps may need to be updated to support Dark Mode, but it should be easy developers to do this in a time-efficient manner. The darkened color scheme allows users to focus on the content, especially when working in dark lighting environments, which helps ease the eyes and has been available on mobile devices. macOS Mojave also brings a new Dynamic Desktop, which automatically changes the desktop picture to match the time of the day.
Another new feature is Desktop Stacks that automatically arranges content on your desktop into "Stacks".
Finder has received some useful "quality of life" improvements too. Developers who wish to create a dark mode version of their applications can do so using the new API.
For those seeking further productivity, you'll now also be able to mark documents or tweak files or make slight changes to files inside of Quick Look. Developers can also add a spectator mode, giving friends and family the best views of AR gameplay from a different iOS device.
There were also rumors of Apple bringing a News app onto macOS and it looks like those rumors were true.
After years of struggling, Apple revamped the Mac App Store last year.
You'll already see the first examples this merger on Apple's upcoming macOS 10.14 Mojave update, which will feature such apps as Apple News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home. It turns the dock, taskbar, and basically everything into dark gray.
Mojave will be a free download later this September and will be compatible with Macs introduced in mid-2012 or later, plus 2010 and 2012 Mac Pros with Metal-capable GPUs. According to the company's new data protection policy, the user permission is required to access Mac camera or microphone as well as to retrieve personal data from Mail history and Messages database.
In Mojave, screenshots will now drop a small thumbnail at the bottom of the screen and users will be able to immediately edit them, much like in iOS.
The Mac App Store is exactly what it sounds like: a one-stop shop where Mac users can find and purchase Mac-specific software. The new sidebar displays sections like Discover, Create, Work, Play and Develop, each with helpful recommendations and app suggestions on each theme.
If you want to try the new features, you can install a beta before the public release date this fall.
