When does the new macOS come out? All you need to know about Mojave
The new operating system for Mac is coming! It has been named Mojave after the Mojave desert in California and is expected to be available to download in the coming months so stay tuned.
The public Mojave beta version became available on the 26th June 2018 and the official release date is expected to be around September or October 2018.
The last OS, High Sierra, was the 14th OS release. Since this time Apple has kept us on our toes for the next macOS.
Here is some more information on macOS Mojave and what new features you can expect from the new Apple operating system.
Mojave will allow users to switch their desktop to Dark Mode. It will give you the choice over a light or darkened desktop. Dark Mode places the focus on content. Applications such as Calendar, Mail and Photos also incorporate Dark Mode designs.
Are you guilty of having a messy desktop with files scattered everywhere? Thankfully Stacks will automatically organise files into neat groups for you. It groups together items based on file type. Users will be able to customise their Stacks. No more excuses for a disorganised desktop!
If you’re a lover of FaceTime you will be able to bring together your pals with group FaceTime. People can be added into the group at any time and they can choose between video or audio. You can have up to 32 people in the same chat! Perfect for big groups of friends and family.
Mac users will be able to take a photo or scan a file close by with an iPhone or iPad and it will immediately appear on their Mac.

Privacy and Security
Security has always been at the forefront with Apple. The new software update means that Apps will require permission before using the Mac microphone or camera. The same applies with accessing private data e.g. Mail history and Messages database.
Safari has heightened its tracking deterrence to obstruct social media buttons such as Likes and Shares from tracking users without their consent. The new update will also flag reused passwords so users can be notified to change them.
