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

Confirming a December 2017 report that Mac support for iOS apps was underway, Federighi said that Apple has been working on the porting frameworks for two years, internally beta-testing the developer tools by converting the new iPad apps Home, Stocks, News, and Voice Memos to run on macOS Mojave.

And users should be able to view this new background image much more easily with Mojave able to instantly clean up the desktop with something called Stacks.

Furthermore, macOS 10.14 could bring a redesign of the Mac App Store as well, to make resemble what it did with the App Store with iOS 11, including video previews - this had been tipped before by John Gruber.


Apple Inc. said it will combine the different software systems underpinning iPhone and Mac apps, creating a larger, more-attractive ecosystem for millions of developers.

Apple states that this will be applied across the entire OS and will be applied to native apps such as Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar and Photos.

The other big new feature is Stacks which will help you tame a busy desktop by organizing files into neat groups. You can set a timer for when you want a capture to take place, customize the default location for saved files along with a number of other fine-tuning options. Updated Finder in macOS Mojave with an all-new Gallery View also lets users skim through files 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 new design will highlight 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 objective.


The desktop App Store is getting a substantial redesign, bringing it closer in line with the iOS app store. The next macOS will be called macOS Mojave.

First of all, and most obviously Apple is finally implementing a dark mode on in this release. In 2018, it has introduced dedicated topic buttons including Work, Play, Create, Discover and Develop.

A public macOS Mojave beta arrives later this month, which allows anyone to install the beta and test out new features. Stacks is an easy way to collate files of the same file type you have scattered around on your desktop. You'll need iOS 12 to use all of the features coming to macOS 10.12. A new HUD will offer more screenshotting tools, including the ability to record video on the screen as well. Navigation is now based on tabs on the left side, making it easier to find specific apps and programs. There's also deeper integration with iPhones, allowing Macs to use the iPhone's camera for tasks like scanning documents. To that end, Safari users will see a new warning about websites that are tracking you when you may not be aware that they're tracking you.
