Apple Seeds Second Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.2 to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.2 update to developers, one week after seeding the first beta and a little over a week after releasing the macOS Mojave 10.14.1 update.

The new macOS High Sierra 10.14.2 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.


We don't yet know what improvements the second update to macOS Mojave will bring, but it is likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS 10.14.1 update.

No new features were discovered in the first 10.14.2 beta, but we'll update this post if anything new is found in the second beta.

macOS Mojave 10.14.2 comes shortly after the release of macOS 10.14.1, an update that brought support for Group FaceTime on the Mac and introduced new emoji characters.

Update: Apple has also made a new beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.2 available for public beta testers.

I finally upgraded to Mojave today. The mix of applications in dark mode and not in dark mode is jarring. And then you have websites like this one that are also blinding if you've been working in a dark mode app for a bit. The fact that the web doesn't yet support dark modes makes it kinda useless and feel like it's a big jumble of black boxes and white boxes on my display. And even when front end developers can test for dark mode, they still have to implement CSS for it, which I doubt most sites will do for years. Hopefully this improves soon. At least on the iPhone it's only one app at a time, so it wouldn't look as weird…I think…

As the world’s website and app lemmings designers followed Apple and went to blinding white with low-contrast light blue font after iOS 7 (even Starbucks menus), don’t worry. Jony Ive goes with circular signal strength bars, contacts avatars, and dialer buttons, and the lemmings follow suit within a year, even long-awaited Simplisafe hardware is now bland, circular, and colorless. Everything will soon lemmingly go dark, even if with questionable functional improvement.
