Why Mac users don't really matter to Apple

Why Mac users don't really matter to Apple

The new macOS Mojave has a lot of features found elsewhere that customers have been demanding Apple add to its operating system. Additionally, the Microsoft Office suite will be available directly from Apple App Store in macOS Mojave.

And users should be able to view this new background image much more easily with Mojave able to instantly clean up the desktop with something called Stacks. Again, this isn't complete because it doesn't account for what apps are used via Wi-Fi connection.

MacOS Mojave will feature a Dark Mode for everyone to take advantage of, with Xcode also supporting dark mode functionality. Now, the feature is being revamped to make a system-wide change.

Apple also announced a slew of new iPhone features via iOS 12.

"Soon" is a loose term, mind you, because while Apple will have a selection of its iOS apps ready in Mojave, developers won't get access to the framework to bring iOS apps to Mac until late 2019.

macOS Mojave will be available as a public beta in late June, it will be available as a free software update for Macs introduced in mid-2012 or later, and 2010/2012 Mac Pro models with recommended Metal-capable graphics. Ever since the first iPhone launched, people have been predicting that iOS and macOS will merge.

The new OS brings more performance improvements to more devices than any previous version and supports iPhone 5s, which was introduced in 2013, to the most advanced iPhone X.

As Apple's Craig Federighi pointed out during the WWDC 2018 keynote, it's not like Macs don't have access to multiple software environments already.

This week, Apple finally gave Mac developers and customers something they've been wanting for ages: a true "dark mode" for the Mac operating system, macOS. The best part though is that Stacks works automatically allowing users to customise their Stacks to sort based on file attributes like date, tags etc.

This isn't the first time Apple has made existing apps obsolete. Another new feature will allow the autofilling of one-time passwords provided by authentication apps. The sections are named as Discover, Create, Work, Play, Develop, Categories, Updates. Screen video capture is built right into the new Screenshot panel as well.

Among the most intriguing updates in Mojave is the inclusion of additional privacy and security measures in Safari, where Intelligent Tracking Prevention will help to block social media "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission.

Besides making daily tasks faster and giving parents new tools to have more control of the time children spend interacting with iPhones and iPads, iOS 12 will also have new privacy features.
