Apple Seeds Second Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.1 update to developers, one week after seeding the first beta and a little over a week 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.

The 10.14.1 update includes 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.

No other significant features were found in the first developer beta of macOS Mojave, so it's not clear if there are any additional changes. The update likely includes performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that have been discovered since the release of the Mojave update.

Should new features be found in the second beta, we'll update this post.

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.

Excited! Mojave is hands down the most stable release with useful (to me) features in a long time.

[doublepost=1538514744][/doublepost]I almost forgot why I wanted to post in this thread! For those who have installed the 10.14.1 beta, is the version of Safari different than 12.0 (14606.1.36.1.9)?
Safari on 10.14.1 is Version 12.0.1 (14606.2.102).

* battery life


This is the only issue for me at this time. Battery life dropped at least by 50%. Hope it's getting fixed soon.

I'm glad it is working well for you and many others. But those of us that rely on our Mac's production to pay the bills need to take a more cautious approach, which is exactly what I'm doing after High Sierra cost me a lot of lost production time last year.
I'm just a casual user, pay bills, read news, stream, etc., and I won't touch any Apple OS upgrade for at least 2 patches. Now, this thing is going back to beta? I'm scared to touch it until I see problem free operations, or, "It just works".

with the 14.0 you had problems? Macbook pro 2018 is not it?
Okay, no problems with 14.0 or 14.1 beta 1 or 14.1 beta 2. 27" iMac i7 2017. 64GB RAM. 1TB SSD.
Or, for that matter, with 13.6.
