Along with WatchOS and iOS, Apple also outlined what it’s been working on for its PC operating system for the past year — MacOS. Let’s talk titles first. The company is moving from mountains to deserts and therefore, has named the new update a desert in California, Mojave and no, I’m honestly not aware how it’s pronounced but I’m sure we’ll figure it out soon.
Anyway, MacOS Mojave brings a bunch of significant updates to the company’s line of computers. For starters, there’s a system-wide dark theme which when enabled turned revamps the entire operating system along with compatible apps with a darker aesthetic. In addition to that, Apple has added a smart cleaning tool which can automatically organize messy desktops into neat stacks.
Moreover, Apple has updated MacOS’ file browser, Finder with a new tab called “Gallery View”. It essentially lets you quickly access all the recent media like pictures. There’s also now a sidebar on the right for more information on a particular photo. Apple is even bringing iOS’ nifty screenshot markup features to MacOS. With the Mojave update, whenever you take a screenshot, it will appear in the lower right and then when you click it, you will be easily able to edit it.
The company is also bringing a handful of previously iOS-limited applications to MacOS including News, Voice Memos, Home, and Stocks. Safari on MacOS Mojave will also let you block off ad trackers by throwing a “Do you want to be tracked” dialog box everytime it comes across a related website. Another iOS feature Apple is making available for MacOS is the redesigned App Store. It now has bigger titles, a sidebar for various categories, editorial highlights, and a revamped look which also supports the operating system’s new dark theme.
