Along with WatchOS and iOS, Apple also outlined what it's been working on for its PC operating system for the past year - MacOS.

Near the end of yesterday's WWDC keynote, Craig Federighi shared that Apple was at work on tools that would enable developers to more efficiently bring their iOS apps to the Mac. A fresh leak suggests that macOS 10.14 for MacBook laptops and Mac desktops is getting a new dark mode, and the Apple News app as well.

Finder has a new gallery view where users can skim through files visually. The Finder has also been updated with an improved Preview Pane, it shows all of a file's metadata to ease managing media assets, quick actions let you do things like password-protect PDFs and run custom Automator actions on files, while Quick Look provides a full-size preview of a file that allows users to rotate and crop images, mark up PDFs and trim video and audio clips without opening the app.

The Stocks app on macOS will show stocks and business articles curated by Apple News editors.

Moving on, Apple is updating its Safari web browser in macOS Mojave enhancing its Intelligent Tracking Prevention feature even further, so "your Mac will look like every other Mac" meaning it would become even more hard for data companies to collect user data.

Other new categories are being planned by Apple under Work, Play, Develop and Create tabs that showcase featured apps.

In Singapore, Mattis vowed to support USA allies in Asia, "No one nation can and should dominate the Indo-Pacific". Navy warships sailed near islands occupied by China in the sea's Paracel Islands that sit east of Vietnam.

A new Discover feed will be added to showcase curated apps that users might be interested in.

Anyway, MacOS Mojave brings a bunch of significant updates to the company's line of computers.

New protection measures also requires apps to get user permission before using the Mac camera and microphone for accessing personal data, like user Mail history and Messages database. It'll also raise excitement levels for Mojave launching later this year.

Users now get new on-screen controls for easy access to every screenshot option and new video recording capabilities.

Most notably, Facebook tracks the behavior of signed in users even when they're not using Facebook.com.

New feature Stacks takes all those screenshots and pictures and documents littering your desktop and organises them into folders based on the type of file, though you can also set it to sort them on the basis of date or tags. "Dark Mode brings a dramatic new look to macOS that puts your content front and center, familiar iOS apps come to the Mac for the first time and the redesigned Mac App Store makes finding new apps easier and more enjoyable than ever".
