The macOS Mojave will feature some productivity bumps too, like Stacks to organise their desktop or sign a PDF document just by selecting a menu option from the sidebar.

Finder upgrades were also on show, with a new "gallery view" previewed by Apple.

The one tease Apple did give us, however, is to share that some of the new macOS apps like Voice Memos and Stocks - which are coming in macOS Mojave this year - are really iOS apps that have been ported over using these new features.

Additionally, macOS Mojave brings group FaceTime calls to the desktop with up to 32 participants, the Mac App Store has received a major redesign to better reflect what's present on iOS, and more dramatic privacy and security improvements have been implemented to prevent tracking and other potential security risks from third parties.

At WWDC 2018, the Cupertino tech giant unveiled UIKit, a new developer tool that will allow some of your favorite iOS apps to make a seamless transition to the Mac.

Apple has revealed its new MacOS Mojave with the company highlighting its new Dark Mode which focuses on user content. The beta version will be available to developers today and to the public later this month. This update is free for all Mac users. However, with macOS 10.14 Mojave, Macs from before 2012 won't be supported, unless they are an iMac Pro.

Mojave will bring with it some radical new features that will let people use apps in new and innovative ways. The Dark Mode has been on the wishlist of iOS users for many years but, iOS 12 won't be getting it. Not only do the colours change, but greater emphasis is placed on the content a user is interacting with, pushing controls to the background.

The new OS also features a new "Dynamic Desktop" feature that automatically changes the desktop wallpaper to match the time of day. You can also quickly view metadata of any file in a tab on the right hand side of the Finder window.
