Apple Seeds Second Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.3 Update to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.3 update to developers, a little over a week after releasing the first beta and two weeks since the launch of macOS Mojave 10.14.2.

The new macOS High Sierra 10.14.3 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 third 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 10.14.2 update.

No new features were found in the first beta of macOS 10.14.3, but if we find anything new in the second beta, we'll update this post.

Update: Apple has made a new beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.3 available to public beta testers.

What battery drain issue? Just because you're having the problem, it does not mean that we all have it.

It's a widespread bug ('http://bfy.tw/LViU'). Loosing 60% battery when your laptop is sleeping is not normal, and never happened before Mojave.

Can anyone hazard a guess on when this would be released, based on previous year releases.

Is it possible for a 2018 release, or would this be pushed to January 2019?

Really want this audio issue to be sorted now.

macOS 10.13.3 and 10.12.3 were released 23/01, so it's a safe bet 10.14.3 will be out 23/01/19.

It has been fixed for me since 10.14.2.


Mine sometimes drains and the other times it doesn't but I've definitely noticed that it has been getting better since 10.14.2. Hopefully by 10.14.3 or .4, it'll completely disappear.

I have been using Mac's since 1986 long before most of the people at Apple were born and quite a sophisticated user. Why does Apple allow young wizbang kids to write code for their operating systems. There are so many common sense and much more user friendly ways to do things. They are so caught up in expanding every possible thing a Mac can do and adding feature after feature just for the sake of adding something that they lost sight of how to make using a Mac simple intuitive an easy like it should be. Not only that both MacOS and IOS change and (many times not for the better) that just about the time you have figured enough of it out, they change the way it operates again. It is maddening and of course the people at Apple forget that not everyone works at Apple or is a geek. This is a big world with 300 plus million just in the States and the vast majority are not geeks. They need something that works in a common sense manner like when you save something the folders you want to save in and have been saving in all afternoon appear in the save dialog box. This one if a hundred things that are brain dead obvious if you actually use the computers to work rather than play. Every iPhone I have had butt dials like crazy, starts playing music or a youtube or moving from some web site on its own out of the blue and when you set an alarm the alert goes off in three minutes to a completely different alert sound and continues to change ring tones and you want to throw the damn thing in the garbage it is so frustrating. These are but a few of the extremely annoying and unnecessary bugs in the way both operating systems work. But do you think anyone from Apple would ever read what people say and take it to heart. That will be the day.

I hope they fix the general UI sluggishness on the 2018 Mac mini's with 5K displays. It's really not acceptable that you have to buy an extra eGPU to get the smooth graphics on a €1500,- Mac.

Like you, I have been using Macs for over 30 years. The first Mac I used was a Macintosh Plus in 1987. Since then, I have used nearly every version of the Classic Mac OS, OS X, and now, macOS, iOS, tvOS, and watchOS. The fact is that Apple's software engineers are not all "wizbang kids", but most probably are. What's wrong with that? Younger people can offer meaningful ideas to the development process. Most of the people working on the original Macintosh were "wizbang kids", including the man who ran the Macintosh project. Two "wizbang kids" started the company! "Wizbang kids" created the NeXTStep OS, which was the basis for Mac OS X, and later, all of Apple's current operating systems. I have loved every version of OS X, and macOS. There have been some feature changes that have annoyed me, or have not worked right for some reason or other, but on the whole, I have been very satisfied with everything Apple has done for the last 20+ years or so. Can macOS use some tweaks to make it easier to use? Absolutely! Pretty much all of the problems you described in your post are fixable, or at least can be dealt with using some tweaks. Not everyone has the same problems with Apple's products that you do. Not everyone needs to be a geek to work with these products. If someone won't learn the new products, that's their choice. My 72 year old mom proved that older people who are not "geeks" can definitely learn how to use new versions of macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS, as well as new Apple hardware. All it took was her desire to learn, and actually trying to learn. I work as an Apple systems engineer for a managed IT service company here in Dallas/Fort Worth. I work with a lot of users from novice to power users. Somehow, they all seem to be able to embrace change, no matter what their level of technical proficiency or age. You have legitimate gripes, but it seems that you believe that we all have the same problems. We don't. Call AppleCare. Go to an Apple store if you live near one, and get the problems taken care of. Hopefully, you'll get help from an older Apple employee instead of a "wizbang kid".

I hope they fix the boot camp failure...that’s 4 hours of my life I’ll never get back!

I don’t think I would ever have the patience to use bootcamp. I think I’ll stick with my extra PC (it is a small NUC) rather than go down the bootcamp trail.
