What new features can I expect with this update?

A first beta version of macOS 10.14 Mojave should be available later today via the Apple Developer Center portal for registered developers. The stable release will roll out for all Mac devices introduced in mid-2012 or later, 2010 and 2012 Mac Pro models with recommended Metal-capable graphics cards by this Fall.

Federighi says that when Apple chose to name its new macOS Mojave, the company also got inspired by just how lovely that desert looks in the night. Users can now also put time limits on the certain app after which they will be notified if they use that particular app for more duration. You'll also be able to see which Mac apps are most popular with top charts.

The goal is to also help developers bring third-party apps to operating system, starting in late 2019 with a new iOS framework that can easily adapt an app to macOS with few code changes. The Dark Mode is one of the most important features in this new update, and it was requested by many macOS users since a long time. It's essentially a desktop redesign with a darker colour scheme, transforming the dock and taskbar into a shady grey.

Mojave is also introducing Desktop Stacks. Click it to expand the screenshot and then mark it up with the number of new markup editing tools provided. From the next version of iOS mobile operating system to macOS Mojave, here are the major announcements from the 29th instalment of Apple's World Wide Developers Conference 2018 held at the San Jose Convention Centre. Another feature, Family Sharing, lets parents cut children off from using apps after a set amount of time daily. The Updates tab also exists to list all the apps that need to be updated.

New additions could include a way to track and set limits for time spent on certain apps. The ability to use Animojis in FaceTime and do group video calls with up to 32 people.

What is the new Mac App Store? And be more aware of how you and your kids use apps. Similarly, there are videos that autoplay to give dynamic app previews to users.

Redesigned Mac App Store with focus on curation, along with dedicated tabs for Discover, Create, Work, Play, and Develop.

The App Store is getting a much-needed overhaul (as we previously reported) and takes its design cues from the iOS version (which was redesigned in iOS 11). Apple is reserving this functionality for itself at the moment (with the first ported apps being the aforementioned Apple News, Home, Stocks and Voice Memos).

So what's new in macOS Mojave? IPhones depend on the App Store, but Apple developers had to make different apps if they wanted their offerings to work on Mac computers, too. This feature allows you to dim your desktop screen making it easier for the eyes. Group FaceTime came as part of iOS 12 to support video calls with up to 32 users simultaneously, and the functionality is built into Mojave. There is also an upgraded Safari with an enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention to help block social media "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without their explicit permission. Safari will also include new protections against "Fingerprinting", in which websites track users based on attributes such as system configuration, fonts, and plug-ins.
