Apple unveiled the next version of MacOS, Mojave, at WWDC 2018 with some exciting new features that will change the way you use your computer. Mojave is available for early access and pre-order now, but it won’t be released until fall 2018, so if you want to see what all the fuss is about you’ll have to wait a little while longer. Until then, here are five of the biggest features coming to MacOS Mojave that you should definitely check out.
One of the most hotly anticipated features in macOS Mojave is Dark Mode. This mode will allow you to change your entire interface to a dark color scheme, making it easier on your eyes at night. To turn on Dark Mode, simply go to System Preferences > General and select the Use dark menu bar and Dock option. You can also adjust how light or dark the overall theme is by using an adjustable slider bar next to the words Appearance.
The Continuation text should be indented so that it lines up with the text immediately following it, rather than continuing on the same line as this one. It’s also preferable to make all paragraphs shorter (e.g., two sentences), especially if there are more than three paragraphs in a row because that makes reading easier on the eye and less time-consuming for readers.
Dynamic Desktop Wallpaper
The new Dynamic Desktop feature in macOS Mojave automatically changes your wallpaper throughout the day to match the time of day. The wallpaper is a beautiful image of the desert, and it looks different as the sun moves across the sky. This is a great way to add a little bit of life to your desktop, and it’s a neat way to keep track of time. If you don’t like this feature, you can turn it off from System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop.
Apple’s Group FaceTime feature was one of the most highly anticipated features of iOS 12. Unfortunately, it didn’t make the cut when iOS 12 launched in September. However, it’s now available as part of the MacOS Mojave update. Here’s what you need to know about Group FaceTime. First, not all iPhones and iPads will be able to access this new feature right away because they need a special build of iOS 12 that is only available for developers. Second, once you download and install MacOS Mojave on your device, your iPhone or iPad will get an update that will allow them to use Group FaceTime. Third, if your device can’t handle the new software or doesn’t have enough storage space then you won’t be able to install MacOS Mojave at all.
macOS Mojave introduces Desktop Stacks, a new way to organize your desktop. With Desktop Stacks, you can group related files together in neat little stacks. To create a stack, simply drag a file onto your desktop and then drop it on top of another file. The two files will be grouped together in a stack. If you like, click the stack to bring up a preview of the files inside. Then if you want to remove the first file from the stack, just click the red x icon at the bottom left corner of its preview window. Or if you want to move one or more files from one stack into another, just drag them out of their current location and over into the other stack’s window.
Desktop & Finder Improvements
One of the most visible changes in Mojave is the new Dark Mode, which not only looks great but also can help reduce eye strain. The Finder has also been updated with a new Gallery View that makes it easier to view and work with large numbers of files at once. Stacks is another Finder improvement that automatically organizes your desktop into groups based on file type. For example, all of your images will be grouped together and so will PDFs, making it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Spotlight Search has also been improved with more intelligent results so you don’t have to waste time scrolling through irrelevant search results.
