Apple previews iOS 12

Stream Apple's WWDC 2018 Keynote Presentation Here MacOS Mojave: All the Newest Features for the Mac

For starters, after a series of updates named after mountain ranges, Apple has been inspired by the Mojave desert, particularly during the nighttime. Here's a quick rundown of some of the key features. The newest version of the company's desktop operating system is called macOS Mojave. But in the same breath, Apple senior VP of software engineering Craig Federighi announced that Apple is making it easier for mobile developers to port apps to macOS.

Mojave includes a new feature called Desktop Stacks, which helps organize desktop files into stacks, sorted by kind, date or even tags. Stacks are essentially folders that are dedicated to certain file types, however, the different between stacks and folders is that stacks automatically collect files that should go into them. The Cupertino giant has also added a new Dynamic Desktop feature that automatically changes the desktop picture to match the time of the day.

The Mac App Store is also getting a major overhaul, with a new-look UI, support for video and new "Create", "Work", "Play" and "Develop" tabs. Finder adds a new Gallery View, which allows you to scroll through oversized previews of your files.

The Steam Link app in its beta form uses Steam's Big Picture Mode, which is just an interface to the service that's optimized for use with a controller and a big screen. For example, if an image is selected, you can easily manipulate it or access markup tools.

In the case of macOS Mojave, the default wallpaper image is a handsome sand dune in the Mojave Desert, and with Dynamic Desktops enabled, users will see the sun slowly move across the sky during the day, taking their desktop wallpaper from day to night.

Click "Take Photo", and your iPhone will instantly detect it, wake up, and enter Camera mode.

Valve has not responded to the new guidelines yet, but we imagine that the iOS Steam Link app will be released soon enough.

We will continue updating this post as and when we come across new features in macOS Mojave. There's really nothing more to add on that front other than that those of you familiar with these apps on the iPhone and iPad will be right at home with the "desktop" counterparts.

Mojave provides users with even more granular control of their private data and how they'd like to share it. You'll be able to fine-tune permissions for more apps, like the Camera and Microphone, and in Safari, you will be able to "shut down" cookie tracking for likes and comments. The redesign is similar to the changes to the iOS 11 App Store, highlighted by new editorial content for app discovery.
