Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.6 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.6 update to developers, one week after seeding the fourth macOS Mojave 10.14.6 beta and two months after the release of macOS Mojave 10.14.5, which brought AirPlay 2 support for third-party TVs.

The new macOS Mojave 10.14.6 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.


There were no new features or significant changes discovered in the first four betas of macOS Mojave 10.14.6, which indicates it likely focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS Mojave 10.14.5 update.

If new features are found in the fifth beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.6, we'll update this post with details.

macOS Mojave 10.14.6 is likely to be one of the last updates to the macOS Mojave operating system as Apple will soon transition to work on macOS Catalina, announced at WWDC.

So many betas for nothing major

My guess is they want to get this perfect. They don't want to release a 10.14.6.1 for any bugs. They want to wrap up Mojave so they can solely focus on 10.15.

If it makes the Majave final build perfectly stable, I’d call that MAJOR.
Stability is THE most important feature of any OS imo.

... the last version of MacOS that will ever support 32-bit apps, so it's now or never.

Will this enable Apple Card support?
Or will this never end up on the computer side?

Every website will support Apple Card since you can just enter the number.

Gosh dangit. Every year, I wait on .6 to be released before I deploy our new teacher computers with our MDM. Looks like I'll be waiting another week...

Yup......but, you can run older versions in a VM, so in a way your mac still runs 32 bit Apps.;)

Because stability has been such an issue with Mojave, it's the first OS since 2005 (not counting Classic in the 90's) that I've waited until the final update to upgrade (from High Sierra), so I couldn't agree more.

And with the death of 32-bit support, it might be another year before I upgrade to Catalina.


I personally haven't had any stability issues with Mojave, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. What kind of symptoms have you experienced?

What do you expect?

Apple Pay is supported by Safari for years, and so the Apple Card will be supported as well, if it's out there...
Technically, it's just another credit card.

According to Apple developer site, beta 3 is still the latest with build number: 19A501i. My macs cannot find a newer version either.


Do you have Catalina? This article is about Mojave. I think 19A501i is the build number for 10.15 beta 3.
