MacOS Mojave brings dark mode, better privacy, and more iOS ideas

"macOS Mojave is a major update that introduces powerful new features for a wide range of Mac users, from consumers to pros", said Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering.

Apple also added a related feature called Dynamic Wallpaper, which adjusts users' wallpaper according to the time of day. On a system level, Apple has expanded the Keychain and other security features to include support for Camera, Microphone, Safari data and much more.

The ability for developers to bring the best of the iOS App Store to macOS, along with the redesigned macOS App Store should go a long way to satisfying Mac customers, while making it easier for developers to broaden their revenue streams.

That'll change this fall when Apple ships MacOS Mojave, which will let you see favicons - after you enable it in the browser's settings.

Mojave promises to add a solid collection of features to the Mac that will make everyday tasks easier than before, but most interesting is the demonstration by Apple of what will be possible next year when third-party developers can bring iOS apps to the Mac as Apple has done with News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memos. Apple introduced a new Measure application that uses AR for precise measurement of the space around you. A fresh leak suggests that macOS 10.14 for MacBook laptops and Mac desktops is getting a new dark mode, and the Apple News app as well. Dark Mode works for developers, too - it's included in Xcode. Numerous changes deal with the look of the desktop environment and imaging options. Despite that, the system is the origin of Apple's other operating systems that run on the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. Also, when a new online account is created, Safari will create, store, and autofill strong passwords and warn users of reused passwords. With iOS 12, Apple is "doubling down on performance". One of them was Microsoft's Office 365.

Apple has also made some improvements to its Photos app which now comes with an improved search, photo recognition, search suggestions which highlights key moments and people that are important to you. There'll also be a Stocks app for everyone who... doesn't already have a way to check stocks.

Apple iOS 12 developer preview is available to Apple Developer Program users via develop.apple.com starting today.

The inclusion of Home app and HomeKit support in macOS Mojave is a godsend feature which I'm sure many will rally behind when it's released to everyone later this year.
