In addition to releasing iOS 12.1.1, Apple has also released MacOS Mojave 10.14.2 to the public. The update brings a few new features but is mostly focused on being a bug fix release for the platform. The update is available now and you can get it by going to Settings>Software Update on your Mac.
Like iOS 12.1.1, MacOS Mojave 10.14.2 brings Real-time text support for Wi-Fi calling and resolves an issue that prevented iTunes from playing media on third-party AirPlay speakers. That issue didn’t impact everyone.
In addition, there are also several enterprise related updates to the 10.14.2 release.
- Allows administrators to enable FileVault via MDM for mobile accounts and users created by MDM.
- Allows users to reset their login password at the login window when that password has expired via a password policy.
- Resolves an issue that prevents displays from working when connected to MacBook Pro models introduced in 2018, if certain third-party USB graphics devices are also connected.
Overall it is a small but important update that users are recommended to install when possible.
The release of 10.14.2 comes after just over a month of beta testing of the build with both developer and public beta testers registered in the Apple Beta Program. This release is also the last we will see in 2018 unless a major issue is found in the public release of the update.
