The newest version of the company's desktop operating system is called macOS Mojave. The new Dark Mode includes a darker desktop background and darker colors in all of the menus and settings.

Now you can stay focused on your work with Dark Mode. The Dark Mode is one of the most important features in this new update, and it was requested by many macOS users since a long time.

Among all the underwhelming announcements of new features for its operating systems at the WWDC keynote, Apple did have something interesting to share with developers wondering about building apps for macOS and iOS.

The new macOS update also brings new apps such as News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home. The update also adds video previews of Mac apps for the first time and also announced Microsoft Office 365 Suite and Adobe Lightroom in the App store. Other updates include WebKit being ported to watchOS, so you can now view web content on your wrist. Finder also gets quick actions which allow you to do quick actions such as create password-protected PDFs and run Automator actions directly from it. Another upgrade was Quick Look which enables a Mac User to interact with a set of files much better without actually opening it.

Plus the FaceTime app now allows users to join a video call with up to 32 other people.

Finder: There is the new Gallery view included in Finder, one that makes it easier for browsing photos. The newest version of macOS also gets some new apps, including News, Voice Memos and Home, as well as a fresh new App Store. The new API will also be available for the developers to implement the Dark Mode in their respective apps. However, Dark mode, the integration of iOS apps and a further crackdown on advertisers tracking users across the web will certainly be welcomed by the macOS user base.

Apple has not forgotten about data security and privacy either.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple software chief Craig Federighi told the audience at the conference: "We've all seen these "like" buttons and "share" buttons".

The Mac App Store has been completely redesigned.

Both iOS 12 and macOS Mojave will be made available this fall. There is an enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention system to block social media buttons and comment widgets from tracking users.

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.
