MacOS Mojave unveiled - Gets Dark Mode

Apple has revealed its new MacOS Mojave with the company highlighting its new Dark Mode which focuses on user content. The new Dark Mode includes a darker desktop background and darker colors in all of the menus and settings. All content stands out better in the Dark Mode, and chances are, you will probably leave this on most of the time for the sheer visual brilliance. There's native support in all of Apple's apps, including Mail, the Calendar, Photos, iTunes, and more. Pegged as "the world's most advanced desktop operating system", the latest version welcomes a new Dark Mode, Mac Apps, and Mac App Store. Stacks automatically groups similar file types together to bring some order to your messy desktop. This can clear the clutter of files on the desktop by a single click, including by time, date or tags. Quick Actions allow you to make quick edits to files from within Finder, and you'll now be able to see full file metadata in the Preview pane.

One other new feature introduced in iOS 12 is "Group Facetime": the ability to carry out encrypted group video calls in Facetime with up to 31 other people at the same time.

Finder: There is the new Gallery view included in Finder, one that makes it easier for browsing photos. Billboard will update this story as the presentation continues and more information becomes available.

"We're shutting that down", declared Apple's software chief Craig Federighi, at the firm's developers conference. Apple also announced that Microsoft will be bringing its Office 365 to the App Store later this year.

macOS Mojave will be available as a public beta in late June, it will be available as a free software update for Macs introduced in mid-2012 or later, and 2010/2012 Mac Pro models with recommended Metal-capable graphics. 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 goal. Apple has also upgraded the Safari web browser that lets you block distracting and user habit tracking social media buttons such as "Like" or "Share", and even the comment sections can be blocked from tracking users without their permission.

Screenshots deliver new on-screen controls for easy access to every screenshot option and new video recording capabilities. Safari will also include new protections against "Fingerprinting", in which websites track users based on attributes such as system configuration, fonts, and plug-ins.
