Apple Seeds First Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.1 update to developers, just one day after releasing the macOS Mojave update.

macOS Mojave introduces a new method of installing software updates, so after the initial beta has been installed using the appropriate profile from the Developer Center, additional betas can be downloaded through opening up System Preferences and choosing the "Software Update" option.

It's not yet clear what improvements the first update to macOS Mojave will bring, but it likely includes performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't addressed in the first release of macOS Mojave. It also likely re-introduces support for Group FaceTime, a feature that was removed during the beta testing period. Group FaceTime, which lets you chat with up to 32 people at once, is also present in the iOS 12.1 beta.

macOS Mojave is a major update that brings features like a systemwide Dark Mode, stacks for organizing messy desktops, new Finder capabilities, new tools for taking screenshots, a Continuity Camera option for easily transferring photo scans and documents from iPhone to Mac, and more.

Should we find new notable features in the first beta of macOS 10.14.1, we'll update this post.

Worst release ever, Ugly UI, broken font readability, insane battery drains, even more choppy UI than HS, audio pops still present on the 2018 MBP’s, Safari hanging... what the hell Apple?
I think a LOT of people, myself included, strongly disagree with you. Outside of dark mode, the UI is largely unchanged - and while most people (again, myself included) really like dark mode, you don't have to use it if you don't want to. As for everything else, I honestly can speak towards that because I haven't had a single one of those issues. Perhaps there's an issue with your install, or maybe even a hardware issue with your MBP?

It's beyond frustrating when users take their single experience and act as if it is the experience of ALL users, when the evidence points otherwise.

I'm on a 2018 MBP and have none of those issues.

Hopefully a font fix for non retina displays. Not moving to Mojave until this is addressed.

How about subpixel antialiasing for all of us non-retina users?
