Apple is bringing the best of iOS to macOS

Though only in an early beta now, the Mac's new Dark Mode is already more consistently applied across the system, compared to Windows.

macOS Mojave has picked up an iOS-like screenshot feature in which a thumbnail of each shot appears before it is saved to the desktop.

Apple is finally getting around to including a fully functional Dark Mode in macOS.

If you're not a fan of the new aesthetic, you'll be able toggle between a light and dark mode. The newest version of the company's desktop operating system is called macOS Mojave.

Apple first debuted the Mac App Store in 2011 but has given it very little love since then. Instead of installing the beta though, you can download them below. And Apple still isn't overcoming the App Store's biggest issue, which is a dearth of high-quality apps. Other features borrowed from the iOS App Store include large screenshots and video previews, resulting in a much better browsing and app discovery experience.

Meanwhile, a new view in finder - Gallery View - will let users view an image of a file at the top of the screen, with the rest of your files placed in a strip below the main image.

Users can also set specific teams to an in-app favourites list in order to receive notifications related to when games are airing, as well as specific times when you might want to tune into a close match.

Apple is bringing Stacks to the desktop of macOS Mojave. Right-clicking allows you to choose between Quick Controls, such as changing the brightness or color, as well as a "Settings" menu for changing the icon, name, and more.

Nobody really likes paying for apps, but sometimes we might have to bite the bullet and pay a couple of quid for some piece of software we could really use on our phones.

Over on Safari, Apple is also adding an option to block social networks such as Facebook or Twitter from tracking a user online using like buttons or similar implements. It's first phase of this is seen this year with News, Home, Stocks, and Voice Memos being ported. For the sake of clarity, transactions taking place within mirrored software do not need to use in-app purchase, provided the transactions are processed on the host device. But Federighi highlighted apps like Fortnite, IMDb, Yelp, and DirecTV as potential candidates for macOS app ports. For now, Apple is still working on this framework and as a part of its test, it is bringing four system apps from iOS to macOS Mojave. With Group FaceTime, you can make a group video call comprising of up to 32 people. Like with iOS 12, there aren't any major jaw dropping additions to the mix with macOS Mojave (10.14).
