Apple on Monday gave the world a peek at macOS Mojave, the next version of its operating system for Macintosh laptop and desktop computers. The preview took place at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.
Mojave has a mix of new features that add to its good looks and utility as a productivity tool.
Among its highlights is a new Dark Mode — a darkened color scheme designed to make content pop on the desktop while controls blend into the background.
“Dark Mode will be really welcomed by programmers, as it enhances their code views,” Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies, told TechNewsWorld.
Better Desktop and Finder
Apple also tweaked the desktop and Finder in Mojave.
To address desktop clutter, Mojave has Stacks, a feature that automatically aggregates desktop files into groups. The stacks can be defined in a number of ways, including with dates and tags.
Finder sports a Gallery View that lets users skim through files visually.
The Preview Pane in the Finder displays all the metadata for a file, making file management easier.
Quick Actions and Quick Look also have been added to Finder.
Quick Actions lets users perform tasks like adding passwords to PDF files and running Automator Actions on files from within the Finder.
Quick Look provides full-size previews of document and media files that can be marked up and edited without leaving the Finder.
