Apple today released tvOS 12.4.1, watchOS 5.3.1, and macOS Mojave 10.14.6 for its Apple TV, Apple Watch, and Mac devices, to go along with an iOS 12.4.1 update that addresses a serious vulnerability.

The new software updates are available immediately on the Apple TV, Apple Watch, and Mac.


The three new updates are minor in scale and focus on bug fixes and other under-the-hood performance improvements rather than outward-facing features. On the Mac, the update fixes several issues:
This update:
- Resolves an issue that may cause certain Mac notebooks to shut down during sleep
- Fixes an issue that may degrade performance when working with very large files
- Addresses an issue that may prevent Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iMovie, and GarageBand from updating
tvOS 12.4.1, watchOS 5.3.1, and the new version of macOS 10.14.6 may be some of the last updates that we see before Apple releases new tvOS 13, watchOS 6, and macOS Catalina software this fall.

I haven't seen this many supplementals on the Mac in a long time. Still less than Windows 10 though...

My 2018 MacBook Pro 15" is seeing this as 1.62GB, not exactly a tiny update.

*edit* Updated fine.

Personally, I think this is a very good thing. I think the reasonable inference to be drawn from more updates is not that there are an abnormally large number of bugs, but rather that Apple is working more proactively to address the inevitable bugs present in complex code as they manifest.

Going from an earlier versions, say 10.14.2 or whatever, would you install the 10.14.6 Combo, then the Aug 1 10.14.6 Supplemental Update and then this August 26 10.14.6 Supplemental Update? Or does this Supplemental Update also include the features in the earlier Supplemental Update?

My late 2013 MacBook Pro has been restarting during sleep, and no joke, I had started shopping for new Macs. Glad to see this was an issue that they addressed.
I had the same issue with my 2011 Mac Mini. I wound up replacing the computer. I wonder if its related?

I am hoping that Apple will finally allow me to show messages on my watch, but keep the notification on my iPhone. I had to remove messages on the watch because I cannot hear them when doing something noisy like mowing the lawn with my headphones on. That Apple didn't allow this shows that they think everyone works in quiet offices on a keyboard all day where a quiet sound and shake on the watch would be sufficient notification.
Oddly, when I get a phone call, my watch, phone, iMac and iPad all go nuts. Inconsistency is usually not an Apple trait.

plugged my iPhone in for backup, saw this article and updated OSX on my iMac (1.25GB) ... when it came back and I launched iTunes, I had an iOS 12.4.1 available - did I completely miss that update or did MR just not mention it (yet) ... installing now

Is anyone seeing 12.4.1 on their HomePod? I was able to update iPhone and iPad, but HomePods keep showing 12.4 as latest.

hopefully, but doubtful – this fixes the video in Safari playback issue that arrived in the last update on my 2015 11" MBA...

This is the second supplemental update doe 10.14.6, that addresses assimilate sleep issue that was introduced in the original update. They really should fix versioning and call it 10.14.6.2, or 10.14.8.
Or get rid of the "10" in the beginning of each macOS, which they have kept for years for no reason despite huge upgrades that have significantly altered how we use their computers. I just don't understand their communication strategy here.

They also could have synced it with iOS's numbers, two years ago: having macOS 11 and iOS 11 released in the same year. But nope.

Which version should be in the Apple Store to download?

macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Build 18G87 + "new" Supplemental Update

Or macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Build Build 18G95
