New macOS features
macOS Mojave offers many exciting new features, including:
Dark Mode: Use a dark color scheme for the Desktop, menu bar, Dock, and all the built-in apps on macOS. Your content stands out front and center while darkened controls and windows recede into the background. See Dark Mode on your Mac.
Desktop: The default desktop background adjusts to match the time of day in your time zone. And you can use stacks to automatically organize files on your desktop by file type, kind, date, or tag. See The desktop, menu bar, and Help on your Mac.
Finder: Large previews let you view and quickly locate files in the new Gallery View. Use the Preview pane to view all of a file’s metadata. Perform basic edits like rotating images and creating PDFs in the Finder with Quick Actions. See The Finder on your Mac.
Quick Look: Select a file and press the Space bar to open Quick Look. You can sign PDFs; trim audio and video files; and mark up, rotate, and crop images without opening a separate app. See View and edit files with Quick Look on Mac and Mark up files on Mac in the macOS User Guide.
Screenshot utility: The easy-to-use menu lets you take screenshots, and screen recordings that can include your voice. You can also set a start timer, show the cursor, and customize where to save your screenshots. A new workflow makes it easier to save, edit, and share what you capture. See Screenshot utility on your Mac.
Continuity Camera: Use your iPhone or iPad camera to insert an image directly within a document on your Mac, or save it as a file in the Finder. You can also scan a document using your iOS device and save it to your Mac as a PDF file. See Continuity Camera on your Mac.
FaceTime: FaceTime now provides more options for joining a call and switching between audio and video. See FaceTime.
App Store: A redesigned sidebar in the App Store makes it easier for you to browse, search, and filter apps. Read in-depth stories and explore curated collections on the Discover tab. See App Store.
Security and Privacy: Your Mac asks for permission before granting apps access to a wide range of tools and personal data. Enhanced privacy protections in Safari make it harder for data companies to track your web browsing. Safari also automatically suggests and stores unique, strong passwords when you sign up for an account, and identifies passwords that have been reused so you can easily change them. See Safari.
Additionally, macOS Mojave brings four new apps to Mac:
News: Browse trusted news and information that’s been curated by editors and personalized for you. You can save articles for future reading—even offline or on other devices. See News.
Stocks: Customize your watchlist to follow stocks, indexes, currencies, and more. View prices and interactive charts, and read high-quality business news right in the app. See Stocks.
Voice Memos: Record and edit audio clips on your Mac. Sync and listen to recordings on all your devices using iCloud. See Voice Memos.
Home: Control your HomeKit accessories using your Mac. The Home app lets you automate accessories; create scenes, which allow accessories to work together with a single command; and get real-time notifications if something happens in your home. You can also use Siri to control accessories when the app isn’t running. See Home.
