This year's Apple WWDC has been all about software, with the focus on new versions of iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and of course macOS. These color accents will affect various parts of the operating system such as menus and mouse clicks.

As expected, macOS 10.14 introduced a system-wide dark mode.

Just after announcing iOS 12 at WWDC 2018, Apple is announcing a whole bunch of updates for its macOS platform with macOS Mojave.

Mojave's Dark Mode also includes a new Dynamic Desktop feature that automatically changes your desktop wallpaper to match the time of day. With this feature, all the content of your desktop is automatically arranged into stacks (by kind, date or tag). While these show up normally on iOS, the desktop will now ask if you want to share your contacts, location, photos, or microphone access through your operating system. In addition to the quick look at the images, users will also be able to have a peek through PDF files, videos and more.

Meanwhile, on Apple's new iOS 12, the company announced a feature called Screen Time, which provides users with detailed information to enable them to better understand and control the time they spend with apps and websites.

Support for dark mode has been added to the macOS Mojave which spans to the finder, Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar, and Photos. macOS programming tool Xcode also supports dark mode.

During the developer's conference, Apple also said it's planning to bring more iOS apps to macOS. The new API will also be available for the developers to implement the Dark Mode in their respective apps. The redesign is similar to the changes to the iOS 11 App Store, highlighted by new editorial content for app discovery. Users will fins Google News, Voice Memos and Home on their Macs come fall. This includes Stocks, News, Home and Voice Memos. There are brand new tabs to Discover, Create, Work, Play, and Develop with curated app collections based on specific purposes.

The company is also taking steps to help users limit the amount of time they spend with particular apps and to fight back against the tactics Facebook and other companies use to repeatedly lure them back into their services.
