    What makes you think 10.14.6 will be released on Monday, June 3?

    10.11.6, 10.12.6, and 10.13.6 were released in July.

    Wednesday, for sure. But don't get too excited. 10.14.7 won't hold a candle to 10.14.8.

    Snow Leopard was the last macOS with a dot-release higher than 10.x.6.
    I predict that there will not be a 10.14.7 release.
    However, if there is a .7, it will be released after .6
    I feel confident in my opinion about that.

    This article is talking about how Apple seems to be removing references to iTunes now, and one would think if iTunes is not going away until macOS 10.15 in the fall, they would not be doing this now. So the speculation in that thread is that perhaps Apple plans to ditch iTunes soon with a point release of Mojave.

    Apple might continue to update iTunes for a while on Mojave / High Sierra so that newer iOS devices can be synced, and the library / Apple Music will continue to work. But I doubt we will see any back-porting of the new apps to older OS versions, especially as there will be people who see iTunes as a reason to stay on Mojave instead of updating to 10.15, and the apps will require a period of beta testing as a part of the new OS.

    It sounds like the sync/backup functions will remain in the new Music app, so I think that will meet the need there. It will be interesting to see if this change rolls back to High Sierra and older macOS versions.
