Adjust Comment Print

While a first look at the next iOS update was what many were waiting for, a lot of the watchers expected Apple to give them a preview of what lies in store for the next macOS update for the iMac, MacBook and Mac Pro computing devices. In addition to API-level protections already in place for photos, contacts and other personal data, Mojave introduces protections for the microphone, camera, mail databases, user backups and message history as well. Another major change is the arrival of the redesigned Mac App Store. And, yes, that means once you got the Home app on your Mac all set up, you can ask Siri to turn on your house's smart lights, or lock the doors, etc. This can clear the clutter of files on the desktop by a single click, including by time, date or tags. On macOS 10.14 Mojave, Apple is bringing dark mode to Xcode, which has been particularly lauded by developer community.

After the Dark Mode, macOS 10.14 Mojave has Desktop Stacks that lets users organise their desktops by automatically stacking files into neat groups based on file type.

Apple announced macOS updates after introducing iOS 12, watchOS 5 and tvOS, suggesting how priority of its desktop OS has changed for the company over the past few years.

Apple is also redesigning the macOS App Store to take design cues from the iOS store, bringing a unified design to all its platforms.

ARKit will also be expanded to allow users and developers to better integrate three-dimensional graphic overlays in real-world settings. The new option is part of a revamp to the screenshot-taking function on Mac, which Apple is streamlining to make it easier to share and edit screenshots. Again, it's just like Voice Memos on iPhone and iPad, but on Mac.

Also, it seems Apple's new USDZ file format, created in collaboration with Pixar, could be the other push AR has been waiting for given that it makes content created using ARkit much more easier to port and work on. Millions of individuals use the Mac App Store regularly. And when you Quick Look at the PDF, you can access markup tools without having to open it in Preview. A public beta is scheduled to start in June, for all users.

While many power users tend to have their desktops neatly organised, some users treat their desktop as a virtual dumping ground.
