The 15th major release of Apple's desktop operating system and the successor of macOS High Sierra 10.13, macOS Mojave 10.14 is now available. In addition to the new dark mode, this release brings a few iOS apps to the desktop, including Apple News, Home, Voice Memos, and is also the last macOS version to support 32-bit apps.

Initially released at the end of March 2001, Apple's desktop operating system has just reached the 15th major version. In 2016, Mac OS X became macOS with the release of the 10.12 version. Dubbed "Sierra," macOS 10.12 was followed by macOS 10.13 "High Sierra," and now the time has come for a well-known US desert to step in: macOS 10.14 is simply known as "Mojave."

According to Apple, these are the highlights of the new macOS release:

  • Dark Mode with support for third-party apps
  • Stacks for a clutter-free desktop
  • Dynamic Desktop (desktop wallpaper changing depending on the time of the day)
  • updated Finder with an all-new Gallery View and a Preview Pane, and more
  • Continuity Camera with seamless integration across Mac and iPhone
  • new apps — previously available on iOS — such as News, Voice Memos, Home, Stocks
  • redesigned Mac App Store

In addition to the above, macOS 10.14 is the last version to offer support for 32-bit apps. There are also a few new languages supported, including Australian English, Canadian French, and Traditional Chinese for Hong Kong.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
