The stable version of macOS Mojave has been released. The new version of Apple’s operating system for desktops and laptops includes improvements to the desktop, Finder and introduces a dark mode.
The release of Mojave does not come as a surprise, because Apple said at the announcement of the new iPhones and Apple Watch Series 4 already that Mojave would come out now. Mojave comes out for all Mac products from 2012 and later and Mac Pro’s from 2010 and 2012 with the right graphics cards.
In the new version of macOS there is a darker mode, says Apple. The operating system also has a new version of Safari that prevents tracking by fingerprinting. Safari also displays a notification when Facebook, for example, tries to track the user via a Like button. In addition, the desktop supports ‘stacks’ of files and the wallpaper can adapt to the time of the day.
Mojave also contains the first apps that Apple has ported from iOS. This is done via Marzipan, the code name for the integration of UIKit for iOS in macOS. Developers can officially port iOS apps from next year to macOS, but unofficially developers already do that. The shares and notes apps in MacOS have also been ported to Apple itself. Apple announced macOS 10.14 Mojave in early June at its WWDC developer conference. The operating system also immediately came out as beta for developers.
