Apple amazed us with a slew of improvements that it bought onboard with the Mojave. At this years WWDC the company announced a Dynamic Desktop Feature. This feature will change your desktop as you progress through the day. For instance, the wallpaper in the morning might be that of a sunrise while the same automatically changes to sunset in the evening. Before you dismiss the feature as downright fancy please note that it is not just the wallpapers that change.
The feature also offers a time-lapse static view which is more like a live wallpaper in progression. For instance, the sun will move on the horizon and this syncs up with the time of the day. All said and done this is one of the coolest features that the Mojave has to offer and most of us with MacBooks have been waiting for. The problem, however, is that the Mojave is still in beta and it is not advisable to run a beta build on your daily driver.
