At the WWDC 2018, the new release of macOS is called Mojave (a desert), a very beautiful desert during the day, but also at night and, precisely because of this feature, Apple has introduced the dark mode on MacOS, which is so eagerly awaited by users.
macOS is an extremely important operating system for Apple, and the company knows that it has been leaving its desktop system a little behind. In this WWDC18 Apple has decided to add a number of new features in the form of applications and performance improvements for macOS such as News, Home and much more.
Many new features of this new version of macOS called Mojave that will include improvements in security, performance and above all adapts to the needs of today’s user, maintaining a minimum standard with reference to iOS.
MacOS Mojave’s Dark Mode is not just a transformation of the status bar. Change the interface of all the applications on the Mac completely.
The new Dark Mode, will be much appreciated especially by developers who can write the application code on a dark background.
macOS Mojave introduces many other functions; we start from the desk, which can often be really full of icons and folders, creating an incredible confusion. Thanks to the function called Stacks integrated on Mojave, we can join on the right side of the screen all the tens of files we have and these files are grouped according to specific criteria, type of file, or other. By placing the mouse on an icon it will expand allowing us to choose the file we want.
The Finder includes a new display mode called Gallery View, similar to the coverflow mode but made only of images, but also allows you to view the metadata of a photo in the right side. The context area of the finder is now dynamic. Change fast actions based on what we select.
The Markup is introduced in the QuickLook. We have the new button to invoke the Markup quickly to sign the documents and how long it is without opening them.
News also for screenshots. When we make a screenshot we will have a small preview that will take you to the lower right corner of the screen.
We can invoke a toolbar for screenshots and from here decide whether to take a screenshot of the whole window, a small piece, or a video of the selection.
Continuity Camera is introduced
From the Mac We can choose “Take a picture” and on our iPhone will launch the camera and, when we click on confirmation, the photo created by iPhone will automatically apply in our document on the Mac.
macOS Mojave also introduces the News application, naturally available where “Apple News” is active, so at the moment news that does not concern us Italians.
The stock exchange will also arrive on Mac, with charts on the right and news on the left.
The application of the Vocal Notes will also arrive, so all the notes recorded by the iPhone will automatically synchronize with the Mac and we can listen to them again, manage them, save them or use them in the Garage Band.
Mojave adds new controls to personal data that can be read by the system.
In the wake of the App Store for iOS, Apple also updates the Mac App Store present on macOS, is not similar to iOS 11 but is completely new. In addition to the App also integrates the “Stories”, as on iOS.
The application download screen has been updated and is very similar to that of the iPhone. Video previews for apps are also introduced.
