  • macOS 10.14 getting dark mode, Apple News, and possibly cross-device apps

2018 keynote take places tonight, where the company will reveal the new iOS 12 along with macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

Apple senior VP of software engineering Craig Federighi stated explicitly that Apple isn't "merging" MacOS and iOS.

On the security front, macOS Mojave does more to keep users' private data private.

Apple has unveiled the latest MacOS update at WWDC 2018, called Mojave, and although it stops short at the iOS/MacOS merger some had rumoured ahead of the event, it does come with a number of interesting additions.

New macOS Mojave FeaturesApple includes a host of new macOS Mojave features.

Crude oil prices ease on prospects of higher world supplies
But without adequate transportation to get crude to the coasts, "we're going to continue to see some weakness in WTI", he said . Prices have fallen sharply in the past week amid expectations that OPEC will ramp up production, as well as a stronger dollar.

Along with these very visual new upgrades, Apple is also making its Mac platform more secure for its millions of users.

Developers will be able to port their iOS apps to macOS starting in 2019. Federighi said, "We've been on a "mountain bender" for four years now, so this year's update will change things up".

Many of iOS's privacy protections are coming to the Mac as well. Apple said it turned some of its iOS apps using the same technology. With this announcement, Apple has literally enlarged the scope of macOS utility.

The Dark Mode in macOS Mojave, as the name suggests, brings a dark theme to the entire interface.

What do you think of the new version of MacOS? It might not be a flawless choice for mid-summer, back porch laptop use, but it's a great option for late night computer use.

Iran has no combat troops or 'fixed' bases in Syria: foreign minister
The cease-fire means the Syrian rebels have continued to control an area along the Golan and Jordan's border. Israeli officials have maintained that they can not tolerate a continued Iranian military presence in Syria.

So what's new in macOS Mojave? In the afternoon, a slightly calmer version of the same Mojave.

Speaking of pictures, Dynamic Desktop willl feature live wallpapers which can switch across your day. They also introduced Stacks which essentially gathers multiple apps or files within a single click icon. Stacks are essentially folders that are dedicated to certain file types, however, the different between stacks and folders is that stacks automatically collect files that should go into them. Should you have PDFs all over your desktop, Apple will collect all these into a neat and organised PDF stack. However, the users can customize their Stacks by altering file properties like date and tags.

One of the most commonly used tools on any Mac is the file system, Finder. Bedtime mode will blackout notifications at night until the user decides to allow the alerts.

To sign-up, open a web browser on the device you intend to test on, navigate to beta.apple.com, and sign-up/in with an Apple ID.

The screenshot tool in MacOS is getting far more robust in MacOS Mojave. Another similar update is the addition of video screen recording. There is also a Facebook-like feature which tells the users about photos they look a year ago as a memory reminder. Sure, you jump onboard the Apple Developer Program bandwagon and get over with it, which will cost you $99 on an annual basis.

Russian journalist who 'died' shows up alive in Ukraine
Last night, local police reported that Mr Babchenko was shot in his apartment building in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev. Arkady Babchenko's wife reportedly told authorities she believed he was shot because of his professional work.

The update also brings an all new file system and option for a new windowing service. Safari will now warn users when they're participating in this kind of activity, and enable them to opt out.
