Apple WWDC 2018: Top 10 iOS 12 features you must know about

Apple WWDC 2018: Top 10 iOS 12 features you must know about

Following detailed leaks last week, Apple has announced macOS Mojave featuring a fully redesigned Mac App Store, Dark Mode, Home app, Desktop Stacks, and more.

Apple is also implementing a new feature called stacks on the desktop.

The new mode, which allows users to switch to a darkened colour scheme, would be a welcome addition for those who work for long hours at night and for designers and artists. macOS Mojave's new dark mode works with built-in apps such as Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar and Photos, which have been redesigned accordingly to improve visibility.

However, we didn't know about the new 'Stacks' feature, which will allow you to instantly arrange everything in your desktop into organised sections of documents. Finder is also getting an update in macOS Mojave with new Gallery View that lets users skim through files visually.

Mojave expands macOS' selection of native apps to include News, Stocks, Voice Recorder and Home apps.

Adobe (adbe)CTO Abhay Parasnis came on stage and said that Adobe is supporting the new AR file format and that Photoshop users will be able to tweak and modify the AR imagery. Apple unveiled macOS Mojave, the successor to macOS High Sierra which will roll out to compatible Macs later in the year.

The Mac App Store has been completely redesigned.

When the macOS Mojave release date comes around, you'll get it as a free software update for all Macs launched from mid-2012 onwards, plus 2010 and 2012 Mac Pro models with recommended Metal-capable graphics cards.

The Finder application has also received a major update in macOS Mojave.

DARK MODE. Craig Federighi shows off Dark Mode on MacOS Mojave. 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. Now, ahead of the official unveiling, some new details about macOS 10.14's upcoming features have been leaked online. There is also a strip at the bottom which lets you slide through your files while you search. The new Mac App Store includes editorials about the latest app updates.

The Mac App Store is exactly what it sounds like: a one-stop shop where Mac users can find and purchase Mac-specific software. You'll need iOS 12 to use all of the features coming to macOS 10.12. Just like in the mobile version, Safari will offer enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention to help block social media "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission. In addition, the new apps adhere with the new data protection act and will ask users before accessing the Mac camera and microphone.
