New MacOS Mojave Gets A Dark Side

New MacOS Mojave Gets A Dark Side

Apple's attempt to improve users' passwords takes the form of integrated tools for generating strong passwords (and flagging reused ones), saving them into the iCloud keychain, and entering them into Safari and iOS apps when needed.

As such, Apple's News app will deliver the news in a way that is specifically Apple (which Pickr has a feed in), while Voice Memos will let you access the voice memos across devices that are stored in the cloud.

Apple adds a new Dark Mode, Stacks to your Desktop, a changing background, new apps that you're already using on your iPhone and much more in Mojave.

Apple said Safari will now ask users by default if they want a site to send them cookies, and macOS will make it more hard for data companies to create an online fingerprint of a user's machine. Taking screenshots will also now present users to mark up those pictures. You may not know it, but Apple's smartphone and tablet operating system is based on a fork of Mac OS, and while they've gone in separate directions, now it appears they're coming back full circle, at least in some way to connect. That should make it far less time-consuming to bring iOS apps to the Mac App Store - which Apple just completely redesigned, by the way. Apple's also introducing multiplayer gaming with augmented reality, so several people could be looking at the same augmented reality object from different angles. The new Stacks feature organizes messy desktops by automatically stacking files into neat groups.

Apple announced macOS Mojave on stage during WWDC alongside iOS 12, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12. Apple is also launching Mac versions of its News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memo apps as it embarks on a "multi-year" effort to allow easier porting of iOS apps to the Mac.

Best new features coming to iPhone, iPad with iOS12
The Animoji characters which first debuted with the iPhone X launch will expand with a ghost, koala, tiger, and tyrannosaurus rex. The parent control system sits atop a broader system that adults, too, can use to monitor and limit their screen time .

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. The update is bringing a Walkie-Talkie app that allows users to press a buttong to record a message, then release that button to send it.

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering says, "macOS Mojave is a major update that introduces powerful new features for a wide range of Mac users, from consumers to pros".

"Apple is making changes to the core of how the browser works - surprisingly strong changes that should enable greater privacy", Kevin Beaumont, a cyber-security expert, was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"We're excited to provide our joint customers with easy access to downloads and updates by bringing Office to the newly redesigned Mac App Store". News is now available on macOS through Mojave, as is Stocks, to fill out the content piece.
