At today’s big event, Apple updated its “coming this fall” release of its latest operating system, macOS Mojave, and announced its official drop date: September 24, 2018.

First announced at the 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year, the latest Apple operating system will be bringing some cool new features to Mac laptops and desktops. And we know they’re cool because developers have been playing with the beta versions of Mojave, which will officially be macOS version 10.14, since June of this year.

Perhaps one of the most anticipated features of macOS Mojave is dark mode. It seems like every application is getting a dark mode these days and the newest macOS is no exception. Dark mode will be able to turn everything from menu bars to app windows, well, darker, which some users find easier on the eyes.

Another visual update coming to Mojave is dynamic desktops. A living desktop that gets lighter or darker to match your actual time of day will certainly spice up a once dull, static background.

Get organized

When it comes to organizing your files, the new Stacks feature is going to change the game. Your cluttered desktop will automatically be cleaned up by grouping the files into “stacks” of similar file types. For example, got a bunch of images messily displayed all over your desktop? Stacks will quickly tidy them up by putting them under one desktop icon called “images.” A quick click of the images stack will neatly expand all the pictures on your desktop again.

Shortcuts

Finder is getting a bit of an update too. You’ll now be able to do some quick editing via Quick Actions right in the preview pane, such as image rotation and markup. Finder will also now display complete metadata information for any file right in the preview pane.

Speaking of fast edits, now when you hit spacebar on a highlighted file, not only will you be able to quickly view the file without opening its application, you’ll be able to edit the file too. Crop images, mark up PDFs, edit audio and video, even share files — all without opening any application.

Speeding up your daily workflow with shortcuts seems to be a theme in macOS Mojave as you’ll also be given more options when you want to take a screenshot. Video screen recordings will now be just as easy to create as snapping a screenshot. Previously, users would have to open Quicktime or a third-party screen recording app to get the job done.

If that wasn’t fast enough for you, photos you take with your iPhone can now automatically show up on your desktop with the new Continuity Camera feature.

While we’re talking the iPhone, four Apple apps that were previously exclusive to the mobile device are coming to Mac computers. News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memos will all be, as Apple put it, making “their big‑screen debut.”

A new Mac App Store, tighter privacy and security controls, an updated Siri, and even more app-specific updates round out the newest macOS. Mojave will even brings us Group FaceTime calls in a later update.

macOS Mojave will be available to download, free of charge, on the Mac App Store. It will be compatible with the following Apple computers:

  • MacBook (Early-2015 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Mid-2012 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid-2012 or newer)
  • Mac Mini (Late 2012 or newer)
  • iMac (Late 2012 or newer)
  • iMac Pro (2017)
  • Mac Pro (Late 2013, plus mid-2010 and mid-2012 models with recommend Metal-capable GPU)

Earlier models will have to stick with macOS High Sierra or earlier operating systems.
