For starters, after a series of updates named after mountain ranges, Apple has been inspired by the Mojave desert, particularly during the nighttime.

Mojave's Dark Mode also includes a new Dynamic Desktop feature that automatically changes your desktop wallpaper to match the time of day. "We're excited to provide our joint customers with easy access to downloads and updates by bringing Office to the newly redesigned Mac App Store".

Apple has chose to move away from the mountain-themed names of its macOS updates. Stacks are essentially folders that are dedicated to certain file types, however, the different between stacks and folders is that stacks automatically collect files that should go into them.

Finder has received some useful "quality of life" improvements too. The newest version of macOS also gets some new apps, including News, Voice Memos and Home, as well as a fresh new App Store.

Could President Trump Pardon Himself?
Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore, and he cast doubt that it would occur at all. It says in another clause he can't pardon an impeachment away; he can't stop or undo an impeachment.

Finder has received a few new tools, including a new Gallery View that has a big preview up top and thumbnails across the bottom, as well as new Quick Actions that let you rotate, markup, or access more files with more context. Multiple actions can also be combined using Shortcut app.

With the new color scheme, Mac programs and controls will recede into the desktop's background, letting other content such as pictures, graphics, and video "pop" off the screen, Apple said during its developer conference on Monday. Screenshots are taken the same ways as before, but the images show up in a small window on the side of the screen and can be brought up easily for quick edits. With Continuity Camera, for example, you can use your iPhone's camera to add images to a document you're working on on your Mac.

Mojave will also come with Home, so users will be able to adjust all their smart home gadgets from a Mac dashboard or ask Siri on the desktop to make the respective changes. Then there are some AR and VR related features, including an app called Measure that will give your dimensions of real-life objects, that are part of the iOS 12. App Store Connect has launched as a website and iOS app, enabling developers to manage apps for the App Store, as well as view analytics and respond to reviews. New data protections in Safari mean apps will need to get user permission before using the Mac camera and microphone.

Safari now also presents simplified system information when users browse the web, preventing them from being tracked based on their system configuration. New and updated apps are highlighted in the Discover tab, while tabs for Create, Work, Play, and Develop aid in locating certain apps for a specific objective.
