Apple Unveils macOS 10.14 Mojave with Dark Mode

Share

Apple shows off its next major operating-system update at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2018) keynote today: macOS 10.14, which the company has named “Mojave” in keeping with its California-based naming convention. For both macOS and iOS UI designers, it leads new revolutionary trends: to fit your apps with the new dark mode (Dark Mode UI Designs on Dribbble). Now take a look at how does macOS 10.14 Mojave feel.

Dark Mode

According to Apple, Dark Mode is a dramatic new look that helps you focus on your work. The subtle colors and fine points of your content take center screen as toolbars and menus recede into the background. Switch it on in System Preferences to create a beautiful, distraction-free working environment that’s easy on the eyes – in every way. Dark Mode works with built-in apps that come with your Mac, and third-party apps can adopt it, too.

One Question To Designers – Does your app need a Dard Mode?

With the introduction of OLED screens to the iPhone X, and now with the introduction of macOS Mojave, UI designers are requesting Dark Mode in their apps to take advantage of the brilliant dis OLED display, and to make it easier on the eyes in some cases. But should you add this option to your app? This article gives some clues on how to choose and decide Dark or Light UI.

Stacks

Everybody has encountered that person whose desktop is so littered with files and photos that simply looking at their screen gives you a headache. So to help those users out, Apple created Dynamic Stacks, which automatically sorts similar files together into groups that can be arranged by type, creation date, tags, and more. Unlike standard folders, if you drop a new file onto the desktop, Dynamic Stacks will automatically grab it up and put it in the correct spot.

The Finder with Gallery View

To help make viewing photos, videos, and presentations a little easier, Apple is adding a new gallery view to the macOS Finder. The main difference between gallery view and other viewing modes is that there’s a big preview section in the middle along with a row of thumbnails across the bottom. Photographers will especially love the new feature because in gallery mode, there’s also a new sidebar that shows full meta data for a particular image or video, including things like shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and more.

Quick Look with Markup in Mojave

You may have run into a situation where you need to sign an electronic file. In most cases, you need to look for a third-party PDF editor to finish the job. Thanks to the new Markup tool in Mojave’s Quick Look, you can easily add signatures to documents, or do simple edits to photos and videos like cropping, rotating and trimming.

Redesigned App Store

In addition to all the new features and tools, Apple is beefing up Mojave with a new range of default apps including Apple News, Stock, Voice Memos, and Home, which are all available on Apple’s desktop OS for the first time. On top of that, Apple has done a complete overhaul to the macOS App Store by adding a new UI, better curation via the Discover tab and improved app suggestions.

The Bottom Line

Mojave was not given a formal release date in the keynote, though a Mojave beta will be released to developers today. The developer community will gain access to the tools necessary to port iOS apps to the desktop at some point in 2019.
