Apple Seeds First Public Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.1

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.1 update to its public beta testing group, two days after seeding the first beta to developers and three days 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 Apple, additional betas can be downloaded through opening up System Preferences and choosing the "Software Update" option.

The 10.14.1 update 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.

It's not clear what other 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.

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.

You know what's even funnier? That people can no longer read sarcasm without the little /s thing at the end.

You made me laugh, OldSchoolMacGuy.

Anyone else realize that Apple has brought back "Software Update" to System Prefs? It's not new to MacOS for that to be the case. I am glad it's back this way instead of having to open the App Store every time I want to update.

I’m loving Mohave. Great work by Apple engineers to drive a few great changes and tighten up the quality.

Just wish MacOS wasn’t tied to crappy keyboards floating in a sea of dongles.
