The slew of new features should help rejuvenate the previously stagnating macOS. These color accents will affect various parts of the operating system such as menus and mouse clicks. Instead of the ancient App Store design of yesteryear, the new Mac App Store now features big billboards calling out new apps and collections, plus some of the new editorial content Apple has been typing up for a number of apps.

MacOS Mojave was announced at the Apple's 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday, June 4. The update will be available to all the MacBooks debuted since mid-2012, and Mac Pro models released since 2012. 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. The new feature will automatically arrange all the files on the desktop into proper groups based on file type.

This time, the new macOS Mojave comes with a dark mode which turns the finder window into the black.

The Preview Pane now shows all of a file's metadata, making it easier to manage media assets.

Mojave is also introducing Desktop Stacks. Auto-organized and new files automatically go into their respective stacks. Users will also be able to set a timer for how long they should be using certain applications. Multiple actions can also be combined using Shortcut app. The Updates tab also exists to list all the apps that need to be updated.

The update will also help users de-clutter their Mac computer home screens, which can become crowded with icons and files. And be more aware of how you and your kids use apps. MAC will start including similar preview videos in its App Store.

The new Mac App Store is a ideal, modernized marriage between the old Mac App Store and the iOS App Store.

Apple demoed a full, system-wide Dark Mode for Mac. Apple is also launching Mac versions of its News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memo apps as it embarks on a "multi-year" effort to allow easier porting of iOS apps to the Mac. Instead, the company focused on updates to its operating systems: iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.

Additional tvOS 12 features include the ability for users to securely AutoFill passwords from iPhone and iPad to Apple TV to easily sign in to Apple TV apps.

FaceTime update - As mentioned earlier, the new update gives FaceTime the support of adding 32 people at once in the video chat. There is also an obvious emphasis on privacy, with a new Safari feature that will block tracking sites like Facebook's Like and Comment feature and will ask you to allow it to appear when you're browsing a website. The new update also brings simplified system information that prevents you from being tracked on the web.

Speaking of pictures, Dynamic Desktop willl feature live wallpapers which can switch across your day.
