At WWDC 2018, macOS Mojave stole the real thunder with a bunch of eye-catching features including Dynamic Desktop. Once enabled, it changes automatically depending on the time of the day, thereby making the display of your device ever lively. Wish to set up Dynamic Desktop on your Mac running macOS Mojave? This quick guide is for you!

So, ensure that you have enabled Location Services before getting started. To do so, open System Preferences ⟶ Security & Privacy ⟶ select Privacy tab and then check the box for Enable Location Services.
