The company announced previews of iOS 12, macOS Mojave, watchOS 5 and tvOS yesterday.

First and foremost is the introduction of a new Dark Mode, which brings a dark theme throughout the operating system.

DARK MODE. Craig Federighi shows off Dark Mode on MacOS Mojave.

It can darken the Finder file explorer app, system apps like Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar, Photos and much more. He mentions in the interview that right now the plan is not to build a single Apple Operating System, but to begin testing out the updated UIKit tools in its own apps for Home, News, Stocks, and Voice Memos, coming in macOS Mojave later this year.

As part of Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference 2018 keynote presentation this week, the company announced a redesign for the App Store in the upcoming macOS Mojave operating system out later this year.

Many breast cancer patients can skip chemo, new study finds
The current study involved more than 10,000 women and focused on those whose scores were in the middle range, from 11 to 25. Very high scores are at increased risk of the cancer spreading, and those patients have benefited a lot by chemotherapy .

The other big new feature is Stacks which will help you tame a busy desktop by organizing files into neat groups. With this feature, all the content of your desktop is automatically arranged into stacks (by kind, date or tag). And do you remember the Bump app that allowed file sharing by "bumping" two phones together? In addition to the quick look at the images, users will also be able to have a peek through PDF files, videos and more.

Apart from the Dark Mode feature, Mojave also brings enhanced Finder features such as the now Gallery View, which can be the best way to browser through folders which contain images. While there were many user oriented updates like the introduction of Dark Mode and Quick Look, Apple also focused on safety and iOS integration. Users will be able to determine which apps have access to a user's information and hardware.

In the case of macOS Mojave, the default wallpaper image is a lovely sand dune in the Mojave Desert, and with Dynamic Desktops enabled, users will see the sun slowly move across the sky during the day, taking their desktop wallpaper from day to night.

If you're wondering which apps on your desktop are still 32-bit, you can go click the Apple logo in the top left of the display and select About this Mac. New and updated apps are highlighted in the Discover tab, while tabs for Create, Work, Play, and Develop aid in locating certain apps for a specific objective. This includes Stocks, News, Home and Voice Memos. Developers can use App Store Connect to monitor their latest trends, receive notification from user reviews, as well as respond to customer reviews immediately from their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The beta version will be available to developers today and to the public later this month. As with iOS 12, Intelligent Tracking prevention in Safari will help block social media "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission.
