Here are some of the biggest announcements from Apple WWDC 2018

In addition, Mojave will feature a new "Dynamic Desktop" mode that can alter your Mac's desktop picture to match the time of the day.

Apple is finally getting around to including a fully functional Dark Mode in macOS. Users can toggle between a light and dark desktop as well as add the darkened colour scheme to built-in Mac apps, including Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar, and Photos.

Developers and Apple fans love the new dark mode, but what really needs a true system-wide dark mode is iOS.

Apple shared a preview video of the Xcode on the API that the Mac App Store uses behind-the-scenes was shared by the Steve Troughton Smith with 9to5Mac.

Translating iOS paradigms to the Mac will be full of challenging decisions for developers, but Apple is giving an early voice of direction - at least indirectly - by adding the previously iOS-only Home, News, Voice Memos, and Stocks apps to macOS Mojave.

Along the top of the app, you have tabs for Home, Rooms, and Automation, as well as a "+" icon for creating a new scene or automation. Instead of installing the beta though, you can download them below.

The operating system's App Store will also be updated. Apps coming soon include Office from Microsoft, Lightroom CC from Adobe, BBEdit from Bare Bones, Transmit from Panic, Live Studio from Snap Inc. and Houseparty, among others. It also has metadata support which is displayed in the Preview pane so you can quickly see important details of a photo.

Hawaii lava flow fills Kapoho Bay
The molten rock has formed a new delta in the ocean after extending at least seven-tenths of a mile out, officials said. It was where vacationers enjoyed tide pools, snorkeling and picnics, reported CNN affiliate Hawaii News Now .

Manchester United officially announce Fred signing
He'll also be the third player to have played for both United and Internacional after Anderson, Possebon and Forlan. Willian has tipped incoming Manchester United midfielder Fred to be a big hit in the Premier League .

Bill Clinton says 'Today Show' interview wasn't his 'finest hour'
Later in the day, Clinton clarified saying he "got hot under the collar". "People need to know I apologized". When asked whether he has apologized to Lewinsky , Clinton said no.

With new group options available in FaceTime, Apple users can set up video calls between various iOS users and even add stickers and Memojis for a personal touch. Similarly, there are Quick Actions to let users easily password-protect PDFs or run custom Automator Actions on files simply through Finder.

All your files will be placed into groups such as pictures, movies, spreadsheets, and more, which you can then click on to access. Dark-mode apps like Twitter and the Apollo Reddit client not only look incredible on the iPhone X, but they also help your phone save some battery life since brightness can be a big drain on smartphone batteries.

At the moment it looks like Favicon support is turned off by default in macOS 10.14 Mojave, but can be turned on from the Safari Preferences screen. To switch between Rooms, you have to use the "View" tab in the menu bar or swipe left/right with two-fingers on your Mac's trackpad.

The macOS Mojave release date is scheduled for this fall, most likely in September or October, and as usual will be a free update.

Apple would clearly like its new mobile operating system to take augmented reality mainstream.

Right now, the first phase of the project is to bring native iOS apps and basic frameworks to macOS. Apple said it turned some of its iOS apps using the same technology.

Screenshot (Apple)Why did Apple call it MacOS Mojave? In September 2017, Apple streamlined the Mac and PC iTunes media management tool by removing the iOS App Store, instead asking iOS users to download apps exclusively from their devices.
