Apple releases MacOS Mojave

Apple  has just released macOS Mojave 10.14.1, and if you want to update, you can go straight to the “Software Update” section of System Preferences, a new method introduced with the Mojave update.

 

But… you might want to know all the cool things you can do with it first, right?

 

 

Well, let’s start with the super fun stuff – Group FaceTime is finally here for everyone! Chat with up to 32 people at the same time! Friends, family, foes, who are we to judge? All we know is that it’s super fun/useful.

 

Next in line is another fun thing – more emoji characters! More than 70, actually. Check them out here. 

 

There’s the new Dark mode feature, which apparently lets you be more focused on your work. Try it out by going to the General pane in System Preferences.

 

Siri has been improved, you can now add Emoji to emails, and a new feature called Stacks will clean up your desktop by automatically organizing your files into related groups, or by date.

 

The Finder has been updated so it shows more data and makes things easier to find, The Mac App store has been remodeled, and screenshots have become more customizable and easier to use.  Just launch the new Screenshot utility or press Shift-Command-5 to use.

 

Another new feature allows you to use your iPhone to take a photo of or scan a nearby object or document and have it automatically appear on your Mac. Just choose Import from iPhone or iPad from the File menu in Messages, Finder, Mail,  Notes, Pages, Keynote, and Numbers.

 

Four new Apps have also come along with Mojave, including News, Stocks, Voice memo’s and Home app,  where you can control your HomeKit-enabled accessories.

 

 

Have fun!
