On Monday, during the WWDC 2018 event, Apple announced the macOS 10.14 Mojave, which is the newest operating system to flatter MacBooks and iMac devices. The new operating system will arrive for users this fall. Here’s everything we know about the system including a macOS Mojave dark theme that should make it easier for those who use Mac during the night or in dark rooms.

The macOS Mojave dark theme that will ship together with the operating system this fall will enable a darker user interface for MacBook notebooks and iMac desktops. That means that, when activated, the dark theme will change the windows, menus and default desktop wallpaper into a darker theme. As mentioned above, the new feature will especially come in handy during the night or in darker rooms when the default setting of the operating system’s user interface can become a little hard on the eyes.

MacOS Mojave dark theme, however, does not stand as the same as iPhone’s “Night Shift” mode, which creates a more eye-friendly user interface when the sun sets. Instead, an app called f.lux, a third-party app, can replace the setting and change the white balance of your user interface into a darker and more soothing setting once the sun sets.

It’s also worth pointing out that there is a new dynamic Mojave Desert desktop wallpaper which will interchange based on the times of the day.

Here are some other features. A new APFS file system is now eligible for hard drives and Fusion drives. That means that users will be capable of switching over to new solutions even if there is no particular SSD in your Mac device.

Apple also announced that the new operating system, as well as iOS 12, will support group FaceTime. That means that there can be up to 32 people allowed to join a FaceTime video chat at the same time.

For those who don’t have time to keep their desktop tidy and well organized, Apple also added a new Stack feature which will organize user’s files, images, documents and much more, into groups that users will be able to access on the desktop. No more mess all over the desktop, and none of your friends can complain about how spread out your icons are all over the place.

Apple also updated screenshots on macOS Mojave. The new Screenshot HUD introduces new options for taking a picture of your screen, as well as recording it. Taking screenshots and recording the screen was previously possible, although it required QuickTime or some third-party app which would help you.

There is some bad news too. Apple’s macOS Mojave is the last version of macOS to support 32-bit apps. The beta of Xcode 10 no longer allows users to compile 32-bit apps. Additionally, macOS Mojave will be the last operating system with OpenGL and OpenCL support.

Looking forward to the macOS Mojave? Let us know what you think about it in the comments.
