Apple Seeds Revised Third Developer Beta of macOS Mojave With Feedback Assistant Crash Fix

by

One week after Apple seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave update to developers, Apple last night released a revised update for the software, fixing an issue where Feedback Assistant would unexpectedly quit for some users.


Apple appears to already have fixed the issue ahead of the second public beta release for macOS Mojave, which hit last Friday, and is now issuing the fix to developers newly downloading the update. Additionally, Apple is offering the revised version to developers who previously installed the original third beta version of macOS Mojave.

The Feedback Assistant app comes built-in with iOS and macOS beta programs, and allows public testers and developers to submit bugs and other problems with Apple's pre-release software in an effort to help ensure such issues don't affect public launches later in the year.

Apple announced macOS Mojave during WWDC this year, and the desktop software will see the introduction of a systemwide Dark Mode, Dynamic Desktops, Stacks, and a collection of ported iOS apps that will be available on Mac for the first time: Apple News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memos.

I already had the original 3rd beta (build 18A326g) installed and the 18A326h update appeared for me, so it is being offered to developers who installed the original 3rd beta.

Not worthy of the front page?

Then people complain about "no mac news".

I don't really understand why all the news is spread out among all these sections in the first place.

If you look at MacRumors in Apple News, one of the feeds is just "all stories" which to me makes the most sense.

Indeed..... watchOS updates get relegated to the sidebar, but Galaxy release speculation is main page news.

Hope they did more although doubtful, the first beta and second were one of the best beta's ever

First yes, but the second was only great for a couple of days, then some proccesses went haywire and made my system unusable. Seems like the first beta was an exception. I'm back on High Sierra now and will wait for the official release.

Apple does not appear to be offering the revised version to developers who previously installed the original third beta version of macOS Mojave.

It is being offered when you check for updates, I’m installing it now.
