Apple Seeds Third Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.4 to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the second macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta and almost a month after releasing macOS Mojave 10.14.3.

The new macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.


macOS Mojave 10.14.4 brings Apple News to Canada for the first time, allowing Canadian Mac users to access news stories in French, English, or both.

The update also includes support for Safari AutoFill using Touch ID and automatic dark mode themes in Safari. That means if you have Dark Mode enabled, when you visit a website that has an option for a dark theme, it will be activated automatically. You can see a demo of the feature here.

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 will likely be in beta testing for the next several weeks as Apple refines features and works out bugs. After that, it will see a release alongside iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2.

The update also includes support for Safari AutoFill ('https://www.macrumors.com/2019/01/25/macos-10-14-4-touch-id-safari-autofill/') using Touch ID and automatic dark mode themes in Safari. That means if you have Dark Mode enabled, when you visit a website that has an option for a dark theme, it will be activated automatically.

Why stop at automatic dark mode? I won't be happy until Mac OS X's interface adapts itself entirely to my surroundings. I want each and every element on my computer to look like it has the Predator's cloaking ability. Who want's to see what they're doing anyway?! :mad:



PERFECT! A seamlessly blended unambiguous UI for real users.

I won't be happy until Mac OS X's interface adapts itself entirely to my surroundings. I want tech and every element on my computer be barely visible, like the Predator's cloaking ability. The whole GUI is just so distracting. :mad:


I want the UI to dynamically adapt to any videos I’m watching.

So an awful lot of skin-coloured menu bars I guess.

Well, we're getting closer. Once .6 is released, I will finally upgrade to Mojave. After the last few years of Apple's bug-ridden software releases, I vowed to not leave High Sierra until the .6 release of the next operating system. It's been a wise investment as I've had far, far less problems this year.


A wise decision - it's painfully apparent that Apple's commitment to software quality has been lacking these past several years.


macOS Mojave is the most stable release ever, even more so than the famous Snow Leopard OS, and that one wasn't even stable from the onset, Mojave was/is.

I would like to see Cortana implemented so I can fully utilize bing.

Try buying a Windoze10 system, then, and finding a Microsoft Rumors forum to comment on. I think you might find it more to your liking, but I'm just guessing.

Stable for you is different than stable for me, and that’s okay. Your needs are different than mine and I fully respect that.

As for me though, the onset of issues with High Sierra caused me to lose a tremendous amount of hours that I could have been billing to clients had I not been so occupied fixing one thing after another with each incremental software release. And Mojave is no different. I have colleagues that updated and with each revision release, new things break that were working before. I know that no software is ever perfect or bug-free, but Apple’s quality control took a nose-dive after Steve passed and it has not gotten any better.

Anyway, I’ve learned my lesson and am far better off waiting 8-12 months to upgrade. But again, that is what works for me. For those that like to tinker with things and are not relying on their machine for their work can easily upgrade whenever they want to and that’s certainly a good option for them.

Be nice to know if more 32 bit apps are affected by this Mojave update. Some people had problems with Office 2011 and Quicktime 7 with the last one. It seems Apple is abandoning 32 bit by stealth rather than by next macOS (that they have said won't support 32 bit).
No lectures about weaning off 32 bit please...

Honestly, good riddance. Nobody should be using Office 2011. It’s a security horror show at this stage.

Not a lecture, just a fact ;)

To all Apple improvement scout's:
#1
We will need driver support for the new AMD Vega 7 / Navi platform for the upcoming iMac / iMac Pro 2019 models rather sooner than later. I hope you do your homework on this issue in upcoming Mojave Versions.
#2
Improved integration and performance for eGPU's / support needed. Otherwise, Balck Magic sales will hopefully and rightfully kick your @ss. I don't have a problem to pay for great design solutions, - but that stuff has to provide tangible benefits to the end-user.
