MacOS Mojave Adds Dark Mode, Clears the Desktop Clutter

Share

It is now possible to get a dark Menu bar and Dock in macOS High Sierra, but macOS Mojave extends the darker colors to all system apps and the overall UI.

Apple's next version of macOS, Mojave, adds a "dark mode" that will change the bright silvers and grays across the program's windows into shades of black. Any new content added to the desktop subsequently will be automatically added to specific stacks.

This isn't your regular "icon sorting" tool either, and the feature isn't named Stacks by accident.

Apple has announced new features for iPhone users that could cut the amount of time users spend looking at their phone and offer parents greater control of their children's screen time. When the user clicks a stack, the icons expand automatically and allow the user to interact with each one. Apple is reserving this functionality for itself at the moment (with the first ported apps being the aforementioned Apple News, Home, Stocks and Voice Memos).

This may be all you'll be able to access in Steam for the Steam Link app to pass muster in the App Store. It will also have some new augmented reality features, including a new file format that's being supported by Adobe called USDZ.

Regular apps can be updated to support 64-bit systems in no time, if a developer wishes to.

If you need to scan a document or instantly upload a photo to a presentation, Continuity Camera allows you to shoot on iPhone or iPad and upload straight to the Mac. A streamlined workflow enables easy screenshot sharing without cluttering the desktop. Without exiting Quick Look, users will be able to mark up documents by adding a signature, for example, or do slight photo and video edits.

After riding High with macOS High Sierra, Apple announced the next gen macOS Mojave. Using Safari browser, not only Apple is making it extremely hard for websites and cookies to track web users, but is also hiding the signature of a Mac from websites so that they can track users even when users have turned off the third-party tracking. For starters, Apple's protections that check with users before granting app access are extending to the camera and microphone, as well as to sensitive aspects of the file system such as mail, messages, and backups. However, what's important to remember here is that this is only the first beta of macOS 10.14 Mojave, and we can expect Apple to refine things as the testing continues over the coming months.
