IOS Apps Are Finally Coming to Mac

During the presentation, Apple showed off a scene of the Mojave desert as it transitioned from a sunlit day to nighttime scene. Here's a quick rundown of some of the key features.

And the next version of the Mac operating system - called Mojave - introduces a new dark mode for people who like the colour black. Users will be able to activate it at will, and it will apply a dark theme to the desktop and open windows.

MacOS Mojave is due in the autumn, as is iOS 12 - which adds further AR (augmented reality) tools.

Finder has received some useful "quality of life" improvements too. So, for example, if you have a image stack then when you drop it onto the desktop it will get swept up into it - click on the stack and the files launch back on the desktop for perusal.

Finder's new 'Gallery' view was also unannounced, and allows you to quickly view important details and complete Quick Actions with your files such as rotating images. Unfortunately, the same isn't true for Mojave and High Sierra, although you certainly won't need cutting edge hardware. Screenshots are taken the same ways as before, but the images show up in a small window on the side of the screen and can be brought up easily for quick edits.

Mojaves extends continuity support to the camera, by making it easier to initiate taking a photo or video right from the Mac, and being able to instantly add it to documents or other apps.

Mojave provides users with even more granular control of their private data and how they'd like to share it. On a system level, Apple has expanded the Keychain and other security features to include support for Camera, Microphone, Safari data and much more. Safari will also include new protections against "Fingerprinting", in which websites track users based on attributes such as system configuration, fonts, and plug-ins. That said, despite the popularity of the iPhone and iOS, macOS isn't going anywhere.

For an advanced experience, the new Mac App Store features a Discover tab that lists in-depth editorials about the best Mac Apps through stories and collections. The new design highlights new and updated apps in the Discover tab, while tabs for Create, Work, Play and Develop help users find apps for a specific project or goal.
