The weekly cadence of beta build updates for MacOS Mojave continues this week with the tenth such build landing late yesterday. The build comes just a little over a week after the previous update as Apple, with the help of developers testing the build, put the final touches on the next major version of MacOS. Also, a new public beta build for Mojave has been released too for those who are registered in the Apple Beta Program.
MacOS Mojave is expected to be officially released as part of the Apple Event scheduled for next Wednesday, September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple campus.
As for this build, like the previous one, it is about polish, fit & finish for Apple and testers. There aren’t any new features to speak of in the update, only tweaks and improvements to the underlying code. Apple did not provide any release notes for this update.
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. As is well documented at this point, Group FaceTime will not a part of this release as Apple removed it from the MacOS and iOS beta build several build ago. The Cupertino company has indicated that the feature will be coming later this year to both platforms.
