Apple has tried to make iOS 12 more intelligent this time around, with improvements added to Siri thanks to the Shortcuts feature for third-party apps. iOS 12 also comes with a redesigned Stocks app, News app, Voice Memo, while iBooks gets renamed to Apple Books. It brings rumoured features like Dark Mode, an all-new Apple News app, Desktop Stacks, and more. As for developers who are part of the Apple Developer Program, a preview is available beginning 6 June while a public beta program will be available to Mac users in late June.

Mac apps like Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar and Photos have a Dark Mode design.

Apple is also implementing a new feature called stacks on the desktop.

Now you can stay focused on your work with Dark Mode. It is now possible to get a dark Menu bar and Dock in macOS High Sierra, but macOS Mojave extends the darker colors to all system apps and the overall UI.

Finder has a new gallery view where users can skim through files visually.

The change allows Apple to maintain its practice of taking between 15 percent and 30 percent of in-app purchases, while opening the door for Steam Link and other remote mirroring apps that may be rolled out to iPhones and iPads in the future. Users can sort stacks based on date or tags.

The first of macOS Mojave's new features is Dark mode. Billboard will update this story as the presentation continues and more information becomes available.

One of the exciting features for MacOS' latest update was the addition of a lot of key iOS tools, which users have been practically begging for in their desktops. In 2018, it has introduced dedicated topic buttons including Work, Play, Create, Discover and Develop.

The company updated the developer guidelines during the WWDC conference; and may open a way for other game developers to build similar game streaming apps for iOS.

Apple has not forgotten about data security and privacy either. Every time a social media website or element tries to track you, Safari will now pop up an alert, which lets you accept that your data is being tracked. Also noteworthy, Apple says that it's working on a way for iOS apps to be ported to the Mac. Safari now also automatically creates, autofills and stores strong passwords when users create new online accounts.

To be clear: Apple's not announcing native run compatibility for iOS apps on MacBooks, or even any kind of emulator.

Continuity Camera: With this feature, users will be able to scan a document or shoot an image using the iPhone while the same gets added to the document on the Mac.
