Apple's new macOS Mojave operating system prioritizes security and tries to stop websites from tracking you.

There were a lot of rumours about a Dark Mode which Apple confirmed instantly after announcing Mojave.

The new Stacks feature automatically organises files into neat groups. Desktop Stacks keep themselves automatically updated, and it's easy to manipulate them by adding, removing or scrubbing through files.

Finder has received some useful "quality of life" improvements too. Dark Mode gives a new look, with a focus on user content.

Other new features have also been added to the default macOS app Finder, but unless you're a photography nut, you won't really notice the new previewing and photo management features. It'll put up pop-ups throughout toe OS to alert you when apps want access to various services, and it'll stop ad networks from stalking you and building a shadow profile over you in a direct middle finger to Zuckerberg's panopticon.

Finally, Mojave makes it easier to take screenshots, such as toggling between a window, full screen or a selection, or creating animations from videos playing on the screen and easily manipulating them.

After meeting him, her dad decided, "He's a very nice man and I think he's going to treat her with a lot of respect". After sending in photos and videos, she ended up making the local news, and her prom pictures quickly went viral.

The new macOS update also brings new apps such as News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home.

Voice Memos coming to Mac.

"I think that the privacy thing has gotten totally out of control and I think most people are not aware of who is tracking them, how much they're being tracked and the large amounts of detailed data that are out there about them.We think privacy is a fundamental human right", Cook said in the CNN interview. Safari will also include new protections against "Fingerprinting", in which websites track users based on attributes such as system configuration, fonts, and plug-ins. Apple also announced that Microsoft will bring Office 365 to the Mac App Store and Adobe will make Lightroom CC available for download as well. It extends across the Menu bar, built-in apps, and the Mac App Store.

Wired noted that the company's been working on porting tools for the past two years, and that these will become available to developers in 2019.

You don't need a third party app to turn a portion of your screen into a video any more.

macOS Mojave also aims to solve the woes of a messy desktop, with the Stacks feature the desktop is now able to intelligently sort file types and stack them into one single icon, it works similarly to the Photos app on iOS, which you can also quickly skim through the files similarly. Overall it looks like a pretty solid update.
