  • macOS 10.14 getting dark mode, Apple News, and possibly cross-device apps

Apple is also redesigning the Mac App store which will now feature new sections that sport better highlight video previews, ratings, and editor's choice picks. Pegged as "the world's most advanced desktop operating system", the latest version welcomes a new Dark Mode, Mac Apps, and Mac App Store.

Apple unveiled its next desktop operating system this week, macOS Mojave, and as usual it includes a gorgeous new default desktop wallpaper image. The new Stacks feature sorts desktops by automatically stacking files into neat groups based on file type.

Finder is also getting a big update in Mojave with an all new Gallery View that lets users quickly search through files on their Mac visually. They're doing this by bringing part of UIKit to macOS, starting with Apple's own iOS apps-News, Stocks, Voice Memos, and Home.

The update will also help users de-clutter their Mac computer home screens, which can become crowded with icons and files.

The new macOS features were spotted by developer Steve Troughton-Smith in a 30-second preview video hidden on the Apple servers.

Apple is now also welcoming a series of apps from top developers to the Mac App Store, including Office from Microsoft, Lightroom CC from Adobe and others.

That was just the start for Curry. "Every shot that he takes that goes in, he has the business of making them", James said . Despite the offensive fireworks, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said it was an improved defensive effort that led to the win.

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.

In the morning, you'll get a look at the Mojave Desert with a bright blue sky in the background (seen above, left).

Other additions to the 10.14 update see Apple looking to add in an Apple News application for desktop. Finally, Group FaceTime is also making an appearance in macOS Mojave. You'll need iOS 12 to use all of the features coming to macOS 10.12.

Quick Actions allow users to do things like create and password-protect PDFs and run custom Automator Actions on files right from Finder. Even screencapping videos will not be quicker from the keyboard shortcut, rather than going through QuickTime to screen record.

Apple's "ARKit 2" enables developers to create innovative AR apps, with new tools to integrate shared experiences, persistent AR experiences tied to a specific location, object detection and image tracking. Mojave includes improved security and privacy revolving around enhancements to Safari. With the new OS version, Apple Safari gets enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention to block social media "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission. According to the company's new data protection policy, the user permission is required to access Mac camera or microphone as well as to retrieve personal data from Mail history and Messages database.
