MacOS Mojave changes spell doom for indie Mac games

MacOS Mojave changes spell doom for indie Mac games

One other new feature of MacOS Mojave is desktop stacks, which automatically categorizes files on the desktop into stacks which you can go through to declutter your Mac's desktop space.

Apple has unveiled the latest MacOS update at WWDC 2018, called Mojave, and although it stops short at the iOS/MacOS merger some had rumoured ahead of the event, it does come with a number of interesting additions. Dark Mode turns everything from the desktop background to windows to a darker hue, better for people editing photos, writing code or working late at night. Last but not least, the Mac App Store is getting a redesign.

Mojave's Dark Mode also includes a new Dynamic Desktop feature that automatically changes your desktop wallpaper to match the time of day. Now, the feature is being revamped to make a system-wide change. The Home app is also going to be available on macOS, and allows you to control and monitor smart devices at your home, and Siri integration enables voice control as well. Its commercial name is macOS Mojave and the biggest novelty is the implementation of a dark theme in macOS. New iOS 12 and MacOS Mojave software are to be released in the later part of this year. There's really nothing more to add on that front other than that those of you familiar with these apps on the iPhone and iPad will be right at home with the "desktop" counterparts. Apple says recent versions of Chrome or Firefox browsers will be able to access the live stream as well.

The new Mac App Store will sell Microsoft's Office 365 suit, allowing Mac users to download, install and manage Microsoft's subscription-based productivity suite from one location for the first time.

Apple had recently revamped their iOS app store, so a desktop renovation of the App Store was kinda expected. For starters, Mojave now includes a handy new screenshot toolbar that makes it even easier to take screenshots of the whole screen or just a portion.

The new OS is packed with Dark Mode, Homkit support, Group FaceTime, all-new Mac App Store, increased privacy and security and more.

Another feature known as Stacks was demonstrated, a new method for gathering collections of files or apps within single, clickable icons.

Password management is also now improved on Safari with macOS Mojave. The new design highlights new and updated apps in the Discover tab, while specific tabs for Create, Work, Play and Develop help users narrow their search down. The new macOS brings enhanced security feature on Safari Browser which will block tracking websites like Facebook and other websites, these websites use to track users data and those data were sold for researching objective. For those unaware, Federighi is the senior vice president of software engineering at Apple and he heads iOS and macOS engineering teams.
