    Apple today released macOS Mojave 10.14.2, the second update to the macOS Mojave operating system that first launched in September. macOS Mojave 10.14.2 comes three weeks after Apple launched macOS Mojave 10.14.1 with Group FaceTime support and new emoji.

    macOS Mojave 10.14.2 can be downloaded by going to the "Software Update" section of System Preferences, a new installation method that was introduced with the Mojave update.

    Resolves an issue that may prevent iTunes from playing media to third-party AirPlay speakers.Enterprise-related:
    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.Additional details on the macOS Mojave operating system can be found in our dedicated Mojave roundup.

    I'll give it a week, see what the general consensus is, and if positive start the upgrade on my Macs from High Sierra.

    Just wait, it will. I checked for update and nothing showed up, tried again about 5 minute later, and it showed up.

    You won't get a general consensus because Mojave has been rock solid since day one. There's nothing to talk about. The only few reactions are complaints, obviously.

    Same story, since the 10.5 (that was my first Mac OS version, ever). No matter how good and stable the release is, there will always be one portion of people, that will claim it is the worst release ever.

    This desert thing literally flies on my ancient 2012 machine. I am loving it. Aside from this weird mouse selection bug that annoys me, everything is rock solid and buttery smooth.

    Hopefully this update will fix the sluggish and not smooth behaviour of UI interface on dark mode.

    You can try it if you use a notebook like a retina MacBook, retina MacBook Air, or a retina MacBook Pro. Just open more than 5 windows of Finder on the main desktop, for instance, and Safari in full screen. Now move with three-finger gestures, between spaces left and right, on both clear and dark mode. Once you switch to dark mode, the UI becomes sluggish and stutters. This doesn't happen on iMacs (tested on several Macs by myself).

    Why, Apple, just...why you don't make these cogwheels animated?

    I've had a battery issue lately. I don't usually shut off my MacBook. Just close the lid to put it to sleep over night. When I open it up in the morning, I have been having to charge it because the battery drained overnight. (Usually 20-30%). If it was a software bug for whatever reason, we'll see if this fixes it! If not...gotta keep trying to narrow down a cause!

    FYI, my mid2012 15” unibody MacBook Pro rebooted 5 times during this update install. One of the reboots (the 3rd) involved an EFI/firmware update of some kind.

    I'd like it if Apple fixed the non-animating checkboxes, radio buttons, etc. first.

    I'm wondering if this update will finally be the one to get me to update from Sierra? I'm on a mid 2012 MBPR and not sure if I should make the jump, especially hearing some issues are still lingering. Anyone want to weigh in on this?

    The Console application has been crippled since the release of MacOS Sierra. Many bugs are still not fixed. It still feels like an alpha/beta release. The crippled nature of the new Console application suggests that Apple handed off this application to a bunch of summer interns who have never used a Mac before. Apple should take the Console application back from those interns and return development back to their senior engineers.

    I am running Mojave on 2012 MBP just like you, and I am not having any issues. My recommendation based on my experience would be to make the jump, but you are free to do whatever you want.

    Finally DisplayLink working on 2018 MacBook Pros and Air and hopefully brings the end to the 10 months of pain for all those that have had to manage Mac's that use DisplayLink.

    Once or twice a week the external display (2004 Apple 30" cinema) won't display when plugged into the 2018 MBP 15". I haven't been able to figure out a pattern, but unplugging the display from the computer and then plugging it back in after a few seconds gets it to wake the display.

    The 2013 MBP updated.

    Pretty sure that works as intended. I for one like that they removed those animations.

    Finished! The update ETA algorithm reminds me of old Windows file copy ETA.

    It said ~30 minutes for update, while it really took around 10.
