Apple Seeds Third Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.5 Update to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.5 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after launching the second beta and a month after the launch of macOS Mojave 10.14.4.

The new macOS Mojave 10.14.5 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.


It's not yet clear if there are new features in macOS Mojave 10.14.5, but it likely includes bug fixes and performance improvements to address issues that weren't able to be fixed in the macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update.

This update will make macOS more secure because after macOS 10.14.5, new Mac apps released outside of the Mac App Store that want to have Apple's seal of approval will need to go through Apple's notarization security process.

There were no major changes to macOS discovered in the first two macOS Mojave 10.14.5 betas, but if we discover anything new in this beta, we'll update this post.

The prior update, macOS Mojave 10.14.4, brought the Apple News+ subscription service, expanded Apple News to Canada, and introduced a new automatic Safari Dark Mode feature for websites.

Does this fix the gmail issue where you have to log in constantly with the default mail app found in 10.14.4?

Please improve the stability of T2 & Wi-Fi. I had no issues with my 2018 MBP before 10.14.4. :(

wondering why can't beta test the tv app in these releases? seems odd to say it will be here then not make available to test...


The new TV app is for iOS 12.3 but in their announcements they said the TV app for macOS is "coming this fall", so it looks like the Mac version is coming with macOS 10.15.

They could have done the same thing they did to Stocks.app for 10.14.
But, I'm sure Apple want to use the "feature" for marketing on macOS 10.15's behalf.

As far as I know - that's been fixed for a while.

This will be a marzipan app in 10.15


This makes the most since. If they bring power to the Marzipan that has been talked about recently (TouchBar support, Mouse, and others) it looks like this will be the primary way Apple would like apps to show up.
