It has received a full redesign including the addition of few new applications which are mentioned later in the article.

While the target devices will continue to be on separate iOS and macOS operating systems, Apple's Xcode development software will automate much of the conversion process, enabling certain UI paradigms to be shifted - iOS long screen-press will become a macOS two-finger click, for example. The new Dark Mode will be available in all built-in apps like Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar and Photos while users can toggle between a light and dark desktop. IPhones depend on the App Store, but Apple developers had to make different apps if they wanted their offerings to work on Mac computers, too.

There will also be a new feature is called Dynamic Desktop, which changes the way your desktop looks as the day passes-morning, afternoon, evening and night.

Another new feature is Desktop Stacks that automatically arranges content on your desktop into "Stacks". Users can customize their Stacks to sort based on other file attributes like date and tags if they like.

My favorite feature of macOS Mojave Desktop is Stacks - a life-saving feature for people with a messy desktop like me.

The file preview, which is activated by selecting a file and pressing the Space key, receives new functions. In addition, you can run custom Automator Actions on files directly from Finder with Quick Actions. Quick Look in macOS Mojave makes it easier to access full-size preview of a file, rotate and crop images, mark up PDFs and even trim video and audio clips. Quick Look has been updated as well with a similar Quick Actions set up to edit files without ever opening them. While the first three have self-explanatory names, the Home app is meant for interacting and controlling HomeKit-enabled smart devices.


Apple has brought apps from iOS to macOS Mojave, including News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home, the app's configurations and features are synced with their iOS counterparts over iCloud.

A new Discover feed will be added to showcase curated apps that users might be interested in. There are also tabs with categories of apps like create, work, play and develop.

The Mac App Store will also be getting some upgrades, with a redesign that provides editorial content to make it less of a hassle to find a Mac app for your needs. With this announcement, Apple has literally enlarged the scope of macOS utility. With a single app for all machines, Mac, iPad and iPhone users will get new features at the same time.

APPLE HAS ANNOUNCED macOS 10.14 Mojave at WWDC, a security-focused update to its desktop OS.
