    Apple today released macOS Mojave 10.14.6, the sixth update to the macOS Mojave operating system that first launched in September. macOS Mojave 10.14.6 comes over a month after the release of macOS Mojave 10.14.5, an update that introduced AirPlay 2 support for Smart TVs.

    macOS Mojave 10.14.6 can be downloaded by going to the "Software Update" section of System Preferences and selecting the Update Now option.

    According to Apple's release notes the macOS 10.14.6 update introduces several Apple News+ improvements on the Mac. Downloaded issues are available in the My Magazines section of Apple News+, and there's a new option for clearing all downloaded magazine issues to free up space.

    The update also fixes several bugs, including one that could prevent the creation of a new Boot Camp partition on iMac and Mac mini with Fusion Drive and an issue that could cause a hang during a restart.
    macOS Mojave 10.14.6 may be one of the final updates to the Mojave operating system as Apple shifts its focus to macOS Catalina, which is set to be released this fall and is currently being beta tested.

    Not interested in Apple News until they allow me to delete it.
    Give up, no-one wants your crapware forced upon them.

    I like the News app. The free version, that is. Not interested in a paid subscription.

    If you really want to delete it though, you can.

    That will be the last update for my 2013 MBP as I assume that there won’t be a .7 and I won’t update any further as Aperture ain’t running in the next major release.

    If like me, you wait for the Combo, I found out the link on osxdaily.com. Thanks to him/them for consistently being first to post it!

    Here's the link direct to Apple's server:

    I knew it was coming this week! They've done a great job with Mojave, and now it's probably its most stable version.

    I hope they fixed Apple News app, though. It's constantly crashing on my MBA 2014.

    Why is this on the side bar? Damn... I was looking for it when I read the release of iOS 12.4 on the front page...

    If you haven`t upgraded to Mojave , for whatever reason, this is the safest bet to upgrade , the final mojave version before Catalina.

    I already installed it on 2 computers.
    I am especially happy with the following fixes:
    - Resolves an issue that may cause a hang during a restart
    - Resolves a graphics issue that may occur when waking from sleep
    10.13.6 was rock solid on HFS+.
    I am curious how 10.14.6 will be on APFS.

    There will likely be at least one more.

    A bit OT but isn’t it time that Apple removed the 10 from version numbering. They’ve stopped calling it OS X since a few years back and looking at the version numbers, it makes 10.15 sound less significant than it actually is.

    I know Apple prefer to use their names for the major revisions but for all other releases in between we are stuck with 10.xx.yy

    Trivial maybe but the 10 has clearly lost it meaning by now. Oh, and makes it more consistent with all the other OS’ they have now.

    Hallelujah, hopefully that's true. I've had nothing but bad experiences using SMB.

    Assuming Apple News is in /Applications folder and is named "Apple News.app", launch the application «Terminal» and enter the command to delete it:

    Code:
    sudo rm -Rf /Applications/Apple\ News.app
    If the name is one word omit the white spice preceded by the backward slash. Before executing the command, the shell will prompt for your admin password.

    I thought that was fixed by deleting and then adding them back?

    The last time they went beyond .6 was in 2011: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacOS#Versions

    How long did it take ? I’m not halfway yet and 6 hours to go. This hasn’t happened in a long time. I’m on fiber so my WiFi is very fast.

    Wow ! I wonder why it’s so long for me.

    I finally rebooted my MBA and the rest of the download took 10 mn ...Installing now.

    It would be awesome if they did release a .7 considering Mojave will be the last macOS to support 32bit applications as well as the pre 2013 Mac Pros.
