The changes aligns with with an overall push towards bringing more uniformity into the macOS interface. Also, apps such as Calculator and Safari are going to be updated. This will make them similar to their iOS versions and offer consistent experience across the Apple ecosystem.

These hints show that Apple wants to improve how users experience their products and make sure they stay safe.
