MacOS Mojave: Here is all you need to know

The new macOS Mojave is here, which, according to Apple introduces a whole new level in desktop computing experience. That again has to do with the host of new features that the new OS version comes with all aimed at providing users with a superior user experience than ever before.

Here is a compilation of all that makes the new macOS Mojave so special.

Dark Mode: This undoubtedly is one of the star features of the new Mojave version of the macOS. And what makes it so special is a new Mojave Desert desktop which is dynamic in nature, which means the image changes its looks as per the time of the day. So, if it’s getting darker, the desktop should look almost the same as it would have been when being present at the spot during that time of the day. That apart, dark mode will put the focus on user content while controls recede into the background.
