Now that macOS Mojave has been on our Macs and brought important iOS apps such as News and Stocks to boards, Apple's OS is better than ever before. But that's not all: Mojave is also equipped with amazing new and improved features, such as the entire system Dark Mode and increased productivity through the Finder.
In the coming years, several iOS apps would come to best Mac machines . Apple confirmed this on WWDC 2019 with Project Catalyst, making it easier and more seamless for developers to bring their iPhone and iPad apps to mac. Project Catalyst has also been available to developers from June 3rd with the beta version of macOS Catalina so we can expect app developers to release several macOS versions of iOS apps soon.
Even now, there is already much to love in macOS 1
Apple's macOS Mojave has been on our Macs for more than eight months at this time, and most, if not all, issues have been addressed . Plus, any problems that remain are dwarfed by the benefits of this new operating system.
Let us delve into all the benefits besides any new features added, so you can decide for yourself whether the upgrade is for you.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? 2018 edition of Apple's Mac operating system, macOS
- When is it out? macOS Mojave is out right now
- What will it cost? macOS 10.14 is free
Apple unveiled the macOS Mojave back in June 2018 at WWDC 2018 where most of the features were highlighted. This was followed by a public beta launch back in July, and finally a full launch on September 24, 2018.
Apple has kept the macOS Mojave up to date with all the latest features. The latest of these updates, macOS 10.14.4, brings Dark Mode to Safari, along with the new Apple News + service. Previous updates included a solution for FaceTime Bug that allowed other people to access your camera without answering the call, and a additional update to increase the reliability of the MacBook Air 2018.  Apple has also released macOS 10.14.5, which is likely to be one of the last major updates to the operating system before macOS 10.15 was unveiled. This update focuses on stability and is still very worth downloading despite the more sophisticated improvements.
Follow here too, because we will keep this section up to date with all the latest updates when made available.
macOS 10.14 Mojave features
Now that macOS Mojave has been out for some time, there are many new features you can look forward to, if you haven't upgraded yet. We're going to dive into a detailed implementation of everything your Mac can do.
From Finder enhancements to more rigid security, the best Macs are getting much better. Read on to uncover all the new features the macOS Mojave brings to the table, whether you've updated your computer yet or not, so you can take full advantage of it.
First of all, Apple's macOS Mojave brings in an extremely exciting feature in a system-wide dark mode that extends to all first-party applications on your Mac. Even Xcode gets a full makeover, all in black, making the extended programming sessions easier for the eyes.
Third-party applications also apply this new theme, with changes occurring automatically for all apps that use standard colors through AppKit.
Even developers who do not use AppKit are working to implement Dark Mode on their applications. For example, in a recent bug report Google confirmed Chrome developers that they are working in a way to bring Dark Mode into the massively used browser – just as soon as they get out of trouble first.  Group FaceTime
One of the features presented as part of the first release of MacOS Mojave, Group FaceTime was released as part of macOS 10.14.1. This feature allows you to have FaceTime calls with up to 32 people on iOS and macOS devices.
Group FaceTime has an incredible intuitive implementation in macOS Mojave. You can start a group of FaceTime chat from any group of iMessage threads, and invitations are sent via a ringless non-disruptive alert.
When you are in a group FaceTime chat, it automatically detects the speaker and brings them in front and center that everyone always looks at the person who is actively speaking.
The days of cluttered stationary machines are now a thing of the past thanks to macOS Mojave. When your desktop looks like a virtual hurricane that just blew through after a full day's work – just like ours, you can only use Stacks.
With Stacks, macOS Mojave sorts files as files together so you have a more streamlined, less cluttered desktop, organize photos with pictures, pdfs with pdfs, and so on. You can even preview the thumbnails in a stack using a two-finger scroll so you can make sure the file you're looking for is actually in that stack.
Gallery View  In macOS 10.14 Mojave, Apple has provided a new Gallery view to the Finder. This view allows you to quickly browse, comment, and edit files. No matter what file you choose, you can quickly and easily find exactly what you are looking for.
This is made even better, thanks to the very detailed metadata view in the preview pane. This feature makes it easier than ever to record all the information for all files on your Mac.
Finally, thanks to the inclusion of quick actions in the preview pane, you don't even have to leave the Finder to work on files, whether you are editing images or adding protection to files. You can even assign Automator tasks as quick actions to make browsing through files even more effortless.
If you often think you need to import a document or picture on a project you are working on, you are lucky. With Continuity Camera, it is easier than ever to do just that.
Across a number of different apps – such as numbers and pages – you will only be able to control + click in the body of the document, and select "Take Photo" or "Scan Documents." It then opens the camera on the iPhone or iPad so that you can take a photo that instantly appears directly in what you are working with.
It's easy to use, it's convenient, and it will be a blessing to anyone who needs to save some time on school work or the next big work project
Markup in Quick Look and Screenshots
Quick Look is already a quick and easy way to look at files, but macOS Mojave takes that accessibility to the next level. You are also able to quickly and efficiently use Markup to edit files you open in Quick Look.
Markup is also implemented in screenshots, which means that you can only bring up any screenshot and Instantly edit all content in. Being able to quickly crop screenshots in macOS Mojave without having to open any third party photo editing software will be a huge time saver.
When you take a screen, you will see a preview image open, just like in iOS 12 that you can click to preview and edit the screenshot.
That's not all. Screenshots are still an easy shortcut, but with macOS Mojave includes a new easy-to-use menu screen capture tool that lets you capture animated content. Perhaps most importantly, you can choose to save the screenshot on your clipboard and save time – not to talk about space – if you just need to send someone a quick screenshot, but don't want the screenshot to fill the storage space.
Apple News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home are transferred from iOS to macOS Mojave, with special care given to optimize them to suit your computer.
These apps take advantage of the power of best Macs to deliver a wonderful experience. For example, voice memos will automatically transfer all the memos you take between your iOS and macOS devices – and reward anyone who is addicted to Apple Ecosystem & # 39; for a more streamlined workflow.
This is not a complete iOS app transfer. Since these apps are specifically designed for macOS, they feel like new apps. In addition, the new Apple News + service is available on Mac the same day as iOS.
Apple said it would bring more iOS apps to the Mac this year, but we have to wait until the later part of 2019.
As proof that Apple is just as concerned device security like you, macOS Mojave now asks for multiple-feature permission including camera and microphone. Mojave's security also provides more robust protection for your file system.
That's not all: Safari has also been upgraded with its own share of security enhancements. These include turning off cookies that track you across websites and make sure that Safari requests permission before giving any kind of access to your browsing data. Among these are the annoying social buttons that mysteriously appear on each page – Facebook and Twitter cannot track your activity outside their own websites unless you let them do so. .
Not only does it look good, but it also lets you browse apps depending on what you're trying to install. For example, if you're currently looking for an affordable alternative to Logic Pro X or Adobe Photoshop, it's organized so you can easily find best Mac apps to suit your needs.
The new Mac app Store also adopts the iOS App Store's approach to editorial content. It will now have a much more modern interface with selected apps that receive training, searchlight and other such content. It really brings the Mac App Store into modern times.
What's even more exciting is that lots of third-party developers, such as Adobe and Microsoft, take their apps to the Mac App Store, so you won't have to go through less-than-secure websites to get the apps you need.
macOS 10.14 Mojave specifications
Unfortunately, with all these new features, some older Macs will have to go without access to macOS Mojave. This is a departure from macOS High Sierra, which initially had the same system requirements as macOS 10.12.
macOS Mojave vs Windows October 10, 2018 Update
See how macOS 10.14 Mojave stacks up against Microsoft's Windows October 10, 2018 update right here .
macOS 10.14 requires at least 14.3 GB of hard disk space for the installation, as it was needed last year. To be on the safe side, have at least 20 GB of free space.
However, macOS Mojave has more powerful hardware requirements than High Sierra. MacOS 10.13 required at least 2 GB of RAM and OS X 10.8 or later – that's no longer the case. These are Macs supported by macOS 10.14 Mojave.
- MacBook (early 2015 or later)
- MacBook Pro (mid-2012 or later)
- MacBook Air (late 2012 or later)
- Mac mini (late 2012 or later)
- iMac ( late 2012 or later)
- Mac Pro (late 2013 or later, or older models with metal compatible GPU)
- iMac Pro (2017)
Unfortunately, although the required models rarely change year after year, they have it with macOS 10.14. If you have an older MacBook, you may need a newer device to enjoy this new version of the OS.
