Apple also officially announced macOS Mojave. The most noteworthy thing about macOS Mojave is the addition of the new dark mode, Dark Mode, which allows users to better focus on the job content. The desktop supports Stacks stack management to automatically organize and classify files. Mojave also updated the screenshot features and the newly designed Mac App Store. These new features make the system more powerful and easier to use.
Dark mode is a newly designed user interface that helps users focus on their work. Content becomes the center of the screen, and toolbars and menus go back to the background. When turned on in system preferences, dark mode creates a beautiful, undisturbed work environment that makes your eyes easier. Dark mode supports all built-in Mac applications, and future third-party applications can also be adapted.
In addition, Apple also introduced a brand new watchOS 5, tvOS 12.
