Along with iOS 12.1 being released today, Apple has also released MacOS Mojave 10.14.1. Representing the first major update to Mojave since its release last month, this new build brings a number of improvements along with new Emoji and Group FaceTime.
The update is available now and you can download it by going to Settings>Software Update. The update is 3.3GB in size so set aside time to download and install it. As usual, you will need to reboot your Mac in order to apply the update after you have downloaded it.
The big new feature of course is Group FaceTime, which has also come to iOS 12.1. This feature allows you to have a FaceTime audio and video call with up to 32 people at once. In order for this to work, everyone in the call has to be on iOS 12.1 and MacOS Mojave 10.14.1.
The other big feature are the 70 new emoji. These have a wide range of improvements including genders, skin tones, and a lot of new foods and animals. It also comes with the new-and-improved bagel emoji, putting to rest #Bagelgate when the betas of this update were released.
There are likely several under-the-hood updates in this release of MacOS Mojave but Apple has not clearly expressed what those updates are exactly. Still, even if the Group FaceTime and Emoji aren’t all that exciting, it’s a good idea to go ahead and update your Mac so you have the latest-and-greatest.
