When Apple launched iOS 11 last year, they also introduced a redesigned App Store that would help make apps more discoverable and also make the store feel less messy. However Apple did not do anything for macOS and the Mac App Store, but just a couple of weeks ago we heard that might change in the next macOS update.

For those who feel that the Mac App Store is desperate for a new look, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has indeed delivered. The company has officially announced that in macOS Mojave, they will be introducing a newly designed Mac App Store that brings it in line with the App Store for iOS devices.

According to Apple, “Like the iOS App Store, which was redesigned last year, the new Mac App Store celebrates apps, games and developers with an all-new Discover tab featuring compelling stories, in-depth interviews, helpful tips, collections of must-have apps and more. Users can also explore new Create, Work, Play and Develop tabs to find the perfect app for a specific project or purpose — from music, video and photography apps to business utilities and games.”

There will also be features like autoplay video previews so that users can check out the app in action before downloading/buying, new sections/categories in the App Store that will help users discover new apps for creative use, play, or work, and more. The new Mac App Store is expected to be launched alongside macOS Mojave which is currently scheduled for this fall.
