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

by

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.
