Along with the release of the ninth beta release for iOS 12, so too has MacOS Mojave, the next major version of MacOS. The desktop platform has received its 9th beta build as Apple and their testers continue to put the final touches on the release.
MacOS 10.14, known as Mojave, will be released at the next Apple Event. That is rumored to take place on September 12th of this year.
From a features perspective, there isn’t much new to report between this beta and the 8th beta that was released last week. The efforts appear to be more around fit & finish, as they are in the iOS 12 beta, as Apple gets things ready to launch generally to consumers.
Mojave is going to bring a lot of great new features to Mac’s with a new system wide Dark Mode (along with transitioning wallpapers), Stacks on the desktop to keep similar file types organized, and marking up of screenshots with the markup tools.
The Apple News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memos apps have been ported from iOS to macOS Mojave and will be a part of the standard build of MacOS 10.14 when it is released.
Just like on iOS 12, support for Group FaceTime has been pushed back from the initial release of Mojave and should land later this year if all goes well.
