Mojave has a whole bunch of features to make your Mac experience better than before. There is a brand new Dark Mode feature which makes your Mac: Dark. This means you can focus on what really matters and get your teeth stuck into whatever you're doing.

Dynamic Desktop is here: throughout the day, hour by hour, your desktop will change to match the day. For example, if it's light in the morning and dark in the afternoon. Best of all, this works wherever you are.

You can now work on files without even opening them, thanks to the new Quick Look feature. When tapping the space bar, you don't just get a quick look at the document or file, you have the power to edit it, too.
