One of the biggest new features within macOS 10.14 Mojave is a new Dark Mode that will change the colour theme and interface of your Mac to one that is, as the name suggests, darker. Any new content added to the desktop subsequently will be automatically added to specific stacks. The Xcode 10 has a dark mode, but the video shows that the trash icon is also dark, suggesting that a system-wide change is incoming with macOS 10.14. macOS 10.13 now has a partial dark mode that can be switched on, but the changes only apply to the menu bar and dock. This can clear the clutter of files on the desktop by a single click, including by time, date or tags. Finder is also getting an update in macOS Mojave with new Gallery View that lets users skim through files visually.

The company is also bringing a handful of previously iOS-limited applications to MacOS including News, Voice Memos, Home, and Stocks.

Safari now also automatically creates, autofills and stores strong passwords when users create new online accounts and flags reused passwords so users can change them. This will be the latest update to Mac computers which will be expected to officially be released in the later part of the year during the fall. In the same vein, Apple is bringing more of its iOS apps to the mac.

Also, Group FaceTime is also integrated into the current FaceTime app that supports up to 32 participants in a single session.

Apple has announced on its Beta Software Program website that public betas of iOS 12, macOS Mojave and tvOS 12 are well on their way and you can sign up right now for them.

While Origins was a departure from the series' roots, Odyssey will apparently push it even further into RPG territory. The sources also said that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey would be released before 31 March 2019.

My favorite feature of macOS Mojave Desktop is Stacks - a life-saving feature for people with a messy desktop like me.

Apple News is also coming to macOS. The event involved launches of new updates for iOS 12 and macOS.

Overall, Mojave seems to be a nice update that brings welcome usability and security features to the platform.

New Create, Work, Play, and Develop tabs: You'll be able to visit these tabs to find helpful app recommendations and expertise relevant to the topic you choose. There's also deeper integration with iPhones, allowing Macs to use the iPhone's camera for tasks like scanning documents. You can also record a video of whatever's on your screen. Apple says users on macOS Mojave using Safari browser can relax with all-new Intelligent Tracking Prevention which will help block social media Like or Share buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission. In the new MacOS 10.14 Mojave, the OS will start alerting the user whenever a certain app tries accessing your camera and microphone or starts going through your personal data.
