Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after releasing the second beta and a month after introducing the software at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

macOS Mojave introduces a new method of installing software updates, so after you've installed the appropriate profile from the Apple Developer Center, additional betas can be downloaded clicking on the Apple in the menu bar, choosing "About This Mac" and clicking "Software Update." Alternatively, open System Preferences and choose the "Software Update" icon.


The macOS Mojave update brings a long-awaited systemwide Dark Mode, with Mojave users able to choose between a light theme or the new dark theme. Dark Mode is accompanied by Dynamic Desktops, aka wallpapers that subtly change throughout the day.

Stacks, a new Desktop organization system, keeps all of your desktop files neat and organized, while Finder has been enhanced with a Gallery View, a Sidebar, a revamped Quick Look option and Quick Actions, so you can do more in the Finder window than ever before.

Screenshots can now be edited using Markup tools, while Continuity camera, a new feature, allows you to import photos and document scans directly from the iPhone to the Mac.


Apple News, Stocks, Home, and Voice Memos apps have been ported from iOS to macOS as part of a multiyear project Apple is working on to make it easier to bring iOS apps to Macs, and Apple has introduced several privacy protections to keep your data safer.

Apple is also making it harder for websites to track you with a range of new tools, plus there's an entirely revamped Mac App Store that makes it easier to discover apps.

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night.


Yay. :)

Quick questions for the ones who jump on it:
1. does safari still have issues forgetting logins?
2. have they fixed the white screen on the lock screen? There is always a white screen irrespective of which wallpaper you choose.

I was told by the official WebKit Twitter earlier that it's fixed in this beta.

So, not sure if it was just my install or not, but 'Grab' is missing from Applications -> Utilities.

What the heck?

After updating I have experienced neither of these issues.

Login issue is fixed, it even had me logged in to the sites I couldn't stay logged in to.

I think that'll be because it's being superceded by whatever the UI is called when you press shift+cmd+5 - which I'd imagine they'll make a new icon for? Seems silly to duplicate that functionalllity.

I should learn that keystroke sequence ... but I am going to miss getting my screenshots from the dock app. :(

Switching between light and dark mode is now super smooth. The UI fades between the two
[doublepost=1530656719][/doublepost]Dynamic wallpapers now have their own section within the wallpaper picker. The thumbnail showing the dynamic wallpaper has also changed

After download beta 3 with the command line tools, the tools were installed, but Beta 3 wasn't and "Software Update" in Settings shows that it's up to date. Now I'm updating it from the terminal...

Grab.app has been in Mac OS X since the very beginning. Kind of sad to see it go, but I haven't used it very often, only when the keyboard shortcuts didn't suffice for some reason.

Can anyone confirm if the 3rd beta fixes the horrible batter drain and overheating from beta 2?
