7 best features in MacOS Mojave

MacOS Mojave is now available.

Apple unveiled the newest version of the Mac operating system at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June but finally released it to the public in September.

MacOS Mojave is a free update to Mac users, and it’s a pretty big upgrade. Not only will it help you stay organised and get work done more efficiently, but it also features several aesthetic choices to make using a Mac more visually pleasing.

Take a look at the 7 best new features in MacOS Mojave:

Dark Mode

The Mac finally has a true dark mode thanks to macOS Mojave. Just toggle it in your System Preferences app.

The new Dark Mode affects the entire system, from Apple’s own apps like Photos and iTunes to all of your windows and filters. It even works in Apple’s programming environment Xcode, which makes coding much easier on the eyes.

Stacks

We could all use a little help staying organised.

In macOS Mojave, a new feature called “Stacks” instantly organizes all the random contents on your desktop into neat little batches of documents located on the right side of the screen. Stacks can be arranged by file type, date, or tag.

If you click on a stack, you’ll see all the contents. From there, you can double-click to open a document or click the stack again to put everything away.

The best part is that your stacks will stay organised, regardless of how many documents you add to your desktop. If you continually take screenshots, for example, macOS Mojave will automatically categorise them for you, rather than scatter them everywhere.

The all-new Mac App Store

Apple redesigned the Mac App Store from the ground up for MacOS Mojave.

The biggest changes are visual: Now you’ll see auto-playing videos, and even articles, about popular apps in the store, so you can learn more about apps before you download them.

The new Mac App Store also offers new ways to find apps. The new Discover, Create, Work, Play, and Develop tabs help you explore the apps you don’t have, or get more out of apps you already have.

Better screenshot tool

MacOS Mojave makes it easier to record whatever’s on your screen.

While it’s still just as easy to take single screenshots, Mojave introduces a screengrabbing menu with recording tools like a countdown delay timer, the ability to show or hide the cursor in the shot, and new ways to quickly share and organise your screenshots.

Continuity Camera

Apple made Continuity, its system that lets you pick up where you left off on other Apple devices, much more powerful in MacOS Mojave.

In MacOS Mojave, if you’re working on a document on your Mac but want to add a photo, it can automatically activate the camera on your phone – and when you snap that photo, it automatically appears in the document on your Mac.

This feature, called “Continuity Camera,” works for documents and receipts, too, in case you need a quick PDF. It also works in a variety of Apple apps, including Mail, Notes, Pages, Keynotes, Numbers, and more.

Quick Look

Quick Look lets you perform specific actions on files or documents without needing to actually open an app.

In MacOS Mojave, you can use Quick Look to invoke Markup tools, like adding your own signature, rotating and cropping images, and even editing and trimming videos.

Added security

Apple devices are known for their excellent security, but MacOS Mojave gives users even greater control of their data.

In MacOS Mojave, apps must get your approval before they can access your Mac’s camera or microphone. This is also true if an app is trying to access your Messages history or Mail database.

Also, Apple will now protect more aspects of your data – by default – in macOS Mojave. With Apple’s new Intelligent Tracking Prevention system, comment widgets at the bottoms of articles, Like and Share buttons, and sites that use cookies to track you without your knowledge will be “shut down,” according to Apple. You’ll have the option to allow these fields if you want them.
