Though the UI is a little different now, if you're new to Macs and unfamiliar with the App Store, you can still check out our tutorials below to get started.

After riding High with macOS High Sierra, Apple announced the next gen macOS Mojave. Now, however, things are official. Thousands of app developers, a few members of the media, and Apple employees will stuff into the McEnery Convention Center for four days of discussions, classes, and updates on the latest updates to Apple's various software platforms.

Apple has chose to move away from the mountain-themed names of its macOS updates. This year, it was inspired by the desert (hence, Mojave, which is a desert).

A much-anticipated feature which was launched was Dark Mode for the latest version of macOS. It extends across the Menu bar, built-in apps, and the Mac App Store.

The new store includes a ratings and review API, and new apps - such as Office 365 from Microsoft. New characters have also been added - Ghost, Koala, Tiger, T.Rex. That is part of an overall internal effort to bring the experience of building apps for macOS and iOS closer together. It's going to function a lot like the iOS app, only it's on the Mac. Users can toggle between a light and dark desktop as well as add the darkened colour scheme to built-in Mac apps, including Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar, and Photos.

Another Apple app coming to the Mac is the News app.

Redesigned Mac App Store with focus on curation, along with dedicated tabs for Discover, Create, Work, Play, and Develop. In addition to screenshot, Apple is also making it easier to record your screen using QuickTime app. For example, the Home app should make it convenient to monitor your smart devices, such as baby monitors and cameras right from the Mac.

The Chinese statement said the two sides "achieved positive and concrete progress" on Sunday. But he said the US insistence on a five-year sunset clause was a deal breaker.


As always, do not install the macOS or iOS betas on your production hardware (i.e., primary computer or iPhone). "It's something like "AR quick-look", Federighi explained.

MacOS Mojave will feature a Dark Mode for everyone to take advantage of, with Xcode also supporting dark mode functionality. So, for instance, you can create a new PDF by grabbing multiple single files and images.

Markup has been added to Quick Look too, so now when you highlight a file and press the space bar, you have the option to access to Apple's editing tools.

You will now be given immediate access to screenshots to make edits, similar to on the iPhone in iOS 11. Taking screenshots will also now present users to mark up those pictures.

The update to the world's largest AR platform introduces a new more easily sharable file system, improved face tracking, more realistic rendering, 3D object detection, and - most exciting of all - shared experiences. Then, snap a photo with your phone and that image will be dropped in the app you have open on Mac.

During the developer's conference, Apple also said it's planning to bring more iOS apps to macOS.

When will MacOS Mojave be available?

A developer beta is available now for registered Apple developers, and a public beta will be available at the end of the month.
