In June, Apple unveiled Mojave, the new version of the operating system on its computers, at its WWDC conference. Made available in September, this new version brings a lot of novelties, including the dark mode.
As the Cupertino company explained in a blog post, "MacOS Mojave users can go into dark mode to transform their desktop with a dark color scheme, focusing on the user's content while the controls are removed in the background. Users can switch between a light and dark desktop, and built-in Mac applications such as mail, messages, maps, calendar, and photos all include dark-mode designs. " And developers who want to take advantage of this dark mode can also integrate it via an API.
A dark mode for Microsoft Office
This week, Microsoft announces that it will integrate the dark mode of MacOS Mojave on its Office suite (while Apple has just introduced its new Macs).
As reported by our colleague The Verge, the news was announced by Akshay Bakshi, the product manager Microsoft Office Suite, on Twitter.

For the moment only available for testers, this dark mode on Office is compatible with that of MacOS Mojave. And obviously, when it's deployed, Microsoft Office subscribers will be able to take advantage of it. This dark mode will be especially convenient for those who use the office suite at night.
Otherwise, among the other novelties of MacOS Mojave, there is also the Apple News app and blocking tracers by Safar browseri. But the most important novelty announced by Apple at the WWDC conference, five months ago, it is a tool that makes it easy to carry iOS applications for MacOS.
