    Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.6 update to developers, one week after seeding the fourth macOS Mojave 10.14.6 beta and two months after the release of macOS Mojave 10.14.5, which brought AirPlay 2 support for third-party TVs.

    The new macOS Mojave 10.14.6 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.

    There were no new features or significant changes discovered in the first four betas of macOS Mojave 10.14.6, which indicates it likely focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS Mojave 10.14.5 update.

    If new features are found in the fifth beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.6, we'll update this post with details.

    macOS Mojave 10.14.6 is likely to be one of the last updates to the macOS Mojave operating system as Apple will soon transition to work on macOS Catalina, announced at WWDC.

    5th? I thought we only had three so far with today being the 4th.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I thought we were talking Catalina.

    Gosh dangit. Every year, I wait on .6 to be released before I deploy our new teacher computers with our MDM. Looks like I'll be waiting another week...

    Will this enable Apple Card support?
    Or will this never end up on the computer side?

    What do you expect?

    Apple Pay is supported by Safari for years, and so the Apple Card will be supported as well, if it's out there...
    Technically, it's just another credit card.

    So far I haven't noticed any outward facing differences.

    Every website will support Apple Card since you can just enter the number.

    My guess is they want to get this perfect. They don't want to release a 10.14.6.1 for any bugs. They want to wrap up Mojave so they can solely focus on 10.15.

    ... the last version of MacOS that will ever support 32-bit apps, so it's now or never.

    Yup......but, you can run older versions in a VM, so in a way your mac still runs 32 bit Apps.;)

    I honestly don't know... I didn't pay close enough attention. It's whatever became available today, but I thought it was Beta 4 the first time I glanced.

    Never mind. I think I booted to the wrong SSD. Now I'm getting a notification to update my current drive. BRB.

    Okay, definitely said Beta 4 for me... The build number is correct however after updating this particular SSD.

    This is definitely strange but I received an 2.94G update earlier today that said Beta 4 and it was 75a. A few minutes ago I received ANOTHER update that also said Beta 4 and it was 3G. I'm downloading it now.

    Yep, that's exactly what just happened to me right now. It appears that Apple re-issued the Beta for some reason. I thought I had booted to the wrong drive and it hadn't be updated. It was... I checked and another update came through. Then when it was finished, I booted back to my primary drive (which was updated earlier today) and it had another update waiting.

    Now both drives are at 18G78a and both reported Beta4. So, multiple updates were issued for this machine today.
