Apple may release new Dark Mode and News app for macOS 10.14 at WWDC
A developer has seen a new dark mode for macOS 10.14 and Apple may announce it at the 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The developer also found a video in an API in the backend of the Mac App Store that showed Doc a news app.
Ahead of the annual 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, a developer showed a leak that Apple could launch a dark mode on macOS 10.14 and a new news app. The event, which runs from June 4 to June 8, could see several updated launches on iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS.
The current macOS has a dark mode but it is only reflected in the dock and menu bar.
According to a MacRumours report, developer Steven Trafton-Smith discovered a 30-second video on Apple’s server that showed Xcode 10 running on MacOS 10. The developer says he found the video in an API on the Mac’s backend. App Store. The video shows Doc’s trash icon bold which suggests a system-wide dark mode with apps. The video also features an Apple News icon in the dock.

Interestingly, the desktop background is a picture of the Mojave Desert in California at night. This may mean that the next version of Makos may be named Mozave.
Taiwan-based market research firm KGI recently reported that Apple’s new line of MacBooks will see better year-over-year (YoY) unit sales in 13-16 percent in 2018, better than iPads and both. IPhone KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said he was positive about the Apple MacBook’s outlook. He also reiterated his prediction of a new, more affordable MacBook Air in the pipeline for release this year.
Apple had earlier announced the launch of iPhone SE’s successor at WWDC this year, but it seems the phone may not be present at the event. Bloomberg recently reported that “people familiar with the plan” said that Apple would not announce any new hardware at WWDC at this time. Instead, the California-based multinational technology giant will focus on software development. Also, according to a report on a Chinese website, Apple is set to launch an upgraded iPhone SE later this year. Chinese website QQ reports that the upcoming Apple 10 chipset will be powered by 2GB of RAM and will be available in 32GB and 128GB storage variants.
The website further claims that the phone can hold TouchID, which is understandable if Apple wants to keep the price below $ 500. What seems unlikely, however, is the website’s claim that the iPhone SE 2 will have a 4.2-inch display instead of a 4-inch one. If Apple really wants to fit a new screen, it needs to revise the existing manufacturing process and redesign it. In fact, Kuo said that the refreshed iPhone SE will retain the size and dimensions of its predecessor, so it is unlikely that the new iPhone SE will get a screen size refresh. According to analysts, the iPhone SE will not have wireless charging and FaceID.
