Apple Will Not Support 32-Bit Apps Beyond macOS Mojave

Apple Will Not Support 32-Bit Apps Beyond macOS Mojave

Cupertino based conglomerate Apple announced watchOS 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018, now being held in San Jose, California. This mode should thwart now available third-party solutions used by law enforcement agencies to access data from suspects' locked iPhones. Mozilla has also slowly been working on thwarting different ones, but it's going to be a long game of whack-a-mole for all browser makers as new ways of tracking users are being introduced all the time.

A first beta version of macOS 10.14 Mojave should be available later today via the Apple Developer Center portal for registered developers. Aside from new categories of featured apps and games, the shopfront will be getting Microsoft's Office 365 and Adobe's Lightroom CC.

The latest tvOS 12 will be offered by Charter Communications to its customers later this year, joining AT&T's DirecTV Now in the US, Canal+ in France and Salt in Switzerland.

Once a device is running the new operating system, Apple promised that apps will launch twice as fast, the keyboard will appear 50% faster, and the camera will launch 70% faster.

The system used to have single sign-on: now it has zero sign-on. Besides, watchOS 5 also allows third-party apps to play background audio.

Apple said Safari will now ask users by default if they want a site to send them cookies, and macOS will make it more hard for data companies to create an online fingerprint of a user's machine. "It will become intensely hard for data companies to recognize the device and track the user", he added. However, the company did not confirm whether it'll come to older Apple TV devices. And, if you want the best of both worlds, Apple even added a cool feature to macOS Mojave called "Dynamic Desktop", where the entire look of your computer, including your wallpaper, changes throughout the day, transitioning from a lighter look in the daytime to dark mode at night.

A new "Dark Mode" transforms the desktop with a dramatic new look that puts the focus on user content. The new feature will automatically arrange all the files on the desktop into proper groups based on file type. Familiar iOS apps, including News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home, will now be available on the Mac for the first time.

The next version of MacOS, called Mojave, will include a redesigned App Store with more editorial curation, similar to the one that launched on iOS previous year.

There are enhanced privacy and security features. You can now group FaceTime video chat with up to a staggering 32 people at one time. Safari will also help create and renew strong passwords. New data protections in Safari mean apps will need to get user permission before using the Mac camera and microphone.

Finally, Apple is improving the screenshot functionality of MacOS, taking a screenshot will now pop up a window like that in iOS which will allow you to markup and edit file.
