MacBook With MacOS Mojave

MacOS Mojave 10.14.1 Beta 4 Released to Developer Beta Testers

The fourth beta of MacOS Mojave 10.14.1 has been released to developers.  The update came yesterday, along side the new beta 4 for iOS 12.1 and WatchOS 5.1.  This new build is currently only in the developer beta group and not the public beta group at the time of this writing.

There is very little to report in the way of new features or functionality.  This build, as you would expect for this point in an Apple beta cycle, is more about fit-and-finish of the release to the public.  That release should happen before we close out 2018.

Of course the big feature coming in MacOS Mojave 10.14.1 is Group FaceTime.  The feature is now across all of the beta 4 builds for iOS, MacOS, and WatchOS.  This feature allows you to have a video or audio call with up to 32 participants at once, without requiring any new apps.  It is one of the more anticipated features for the various Apple platforms and one that didn’t quite make the cut with the original release of MacOS Mojave last month.

The release of beta 4 to the public beta ring should happen today or later this week.  While we don’t have an official release date from Apple, given that this new beta is more about bug fixing than feature introduction (or removal), we are likely in line for that end of the year release.
