Apple reveals macOS 10.14 Mojave with dark mode and Finder photo tools

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. Coming direct from Apple's servers, this leak is something of a rarity as it gives a glimpse of what's coming up in macOS pretty much direct from the horse's mouth. It will likely bring the iOS 11 App Store redesign to the desktop.

APPLE APPEARS TO HAVE SPOILERED its imminent unveiling of macOS 10.14, just hours before its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) kicks off. The dark mode can be toggled from system preferences by all latest macOS users.

This leak was accidentally discovered when Steve Troughton-Smith‏, who is a developer, found a video preview of development software that shows to be running in a Dark Mode. Reports have also said that Apple will introduce universal apps with the new versions of iOS and macOS.

The dark mode in evidence goes much further than the now available version of it on MacOS, where it only affects the dock and menu bar.

It has a new dark interface, whereas the Trash icon in the dock is further darker. The WWDC 2018 keynote will be streamed live on the Apple site. The Xcode storyboard window includes UI to let developers quickly switch between light and dark appearances.

What's more, as Xcode 10 has been given a new dark grey colour-scheme, it's possible that other Apple applications are going to follow suit. As an added bonus, and what separates a stack from a traditional folder, is that you can scrub across a stack and see previews of all the files therein.

The marketing name of macOS 10.14 is not yet known, but perhaps the sand dunes provide a clue - macOS Mojave?.

"As usual, the spoilers came from within", Troughton-Smith tweeted.
