    Apple today seeded the sixth beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fifth macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta and two months after releasing macOS Mojave 10.14.3.

    The new macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.

    macOS Mojave 10.14.4 brings Apple News to Canada for the first time, allowing Canadian Mac users to access news stories in French, English, or both.

    The update also includes support for Safari AutoFill using Touch ID and automatic dark mode themes in Safari. That means if you have Dark Mode enabled, when you visit a website that has an option for a dark theme, it will be activated automatically. You can see a demo of the feature here.

    We're expecting Apple to release macOS Mojave 10.14.4 alongside iOS 12.2, tvOS 12.2, and watchOS 5.2 following the company's services-focused March 25 event.

    I dread 15. Something tells me that there a tons of random bits and pieces of 32 bit parts of apps all over the place that will just stop working.

    Automator is one of them or at least popped up with a “developer needs to update app to work with future versions of macOS”

    I have a lot of 64 bit apps or app components that still get that message in parts like internal updaters, or installers, or preference panels or whatever. For instance crossover. It is 64 bit, but has buried 32 bit code and isn't compatible. many will eventually get updates but many will never. just going to be a pain to sort it all out and find other ways of doing certain things.

    We'd be hearing rumbles of something major if that were happening, you don't move up a major digit after 18 years on a whim, so it's unlikely, but changing the name from OS X to macOS certainly allows for that.

    Just had a bug in the previous beta, I was disconnecting a VPN connection and at that very moment I got notifications (4 of them on a partitioned external disk) that my disks were improperly ejected, the weird part is that the disk was still flashing, TimeMachine was making a backup, disks vanished from the desktop, later on I checked again and they reappeared on the Desktop, so they where not actually ejected.

    True. Last year we hear rumors of some bigger UI changes for both iOS and macOS that got moved to this update so I am still curious if this is the current thinking?

    Aside from Marzipan and the dropping of 32-bit, there hasn't been much on the next release of macOS.

    they had the chance and they blew it, they can have iOS and Mac OS in the same number
    but apple decide just to keep increasing the last # instead of upgrading the # 10 to 11
    I think there is no point now even if they do it
    because iOS # Mac OS won't be sync
    but I do agree with you
    apple should have get rid of that # 10 a few years ago
    they had their chance when they removed the X
    windows is 10 so Mac OS should be 11 but I don't know apple is thinking lately
    oh wait I do know,
    higher prices and emojis

    :D

    You do realise version numbers serve a purpose? The base OS has stayed the same, there’s no need to go from macOS 10 to macOS 11.

    Installed (or upgraded) to 10.14.4 Developer Beta 6.

    Speculation is the GM version for 10.14.4 is coming out on March 25th, during the Apple Event scheduled that day.

    yes thank you I'm aware of that but if would it be nice just for simplicity and also to have both iOS and Mac in the version number, just like everything else, some agree and others disagree , no problem with that
    everybody have different taste and opinions
    but in therms of performance it doesn't make any difference , so apple changing the number now is really useless at this point

    actually if I remember correctly I think it was Mac OS first then they changed to Mac OS X then they changed again to Mac OS
    well something like that

    so it really hasn't been the same always or all the time
    we will get to a point that they eventually will have to change something
    just like they did when they decided to remove the X

    just to put the same X few years later on the iPhone
    apple, apple my dear apple what a disaster

    there are some people that like things to be organize and keep a nice sequence
    you can't really blame apple for jumping iPhone 9
    because Microsoft did the same with windows 9
    I wonder what the deal is with number 9

    maybe windows ate nine

    :D

    anyway, later

    regards
