    Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.3 update to developers and public beta testers, three weeks after releasing the second beta and a month after the launch of macOS Mojave 10.14.2.

    The new macOS Mojave 10.14.3 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center or through the public beta testing program.

    We don't yet know what improvements the next update to macOS Mojave will bring, but it is likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS 10.14.2 update.

    No new features were found in the first two betas of macOS 10.14.3, but if we find anything new in the third beta, we'll update this post.

    Nothing here...yet.


    Probably not much of an update with holidays in between the last and this one, but then again, it's stable, probably the most stable OS version we had.

    I have yet to download Majave. Is it any better than High Sierra?

    Nope! This time around they decided to release a major OS update with no improvements whatsoever. They renamed High Sierra to Mojave, changed the version number and called it a day. You should totally install it though if you’re a Mojave desert fan!

    I would highly advise anyone wanting to update to Mojave from an earlier OS to back up their data, reformat and do a clean install. I have seen a few machines come in with hard drives that are unformatted as a result of updating to Mojave. All data is lost at this point. I'm not kidding.

    Which makes one wonder why you have 1Gb fiber in the first place. You're aware that there isn't a site on the planet which will serve content to you at even half that speed, correct?

    ...except speedtest.net, I'd assume.

    As always, it depends. If you have a computer/monitor that is not retina, you should stay away from Mojave. Apple discontinued subpixel antialiasing without disclosing it, and fonts look horrible after installing Mojave. I went back to High Sierra since I can live without all the pretty new emojis. :)

    Is anyone on beta 2/ beta 3 having this issue:

    WiFi connection drops if the charger is plugged when it is unplugged or when it is unplugged if it is already plugged?

    I was on beta 2 and this issue persisted even post resetting NVRAM and SMC on my MacBook Air 2017, so I had to reinstall 10.14.2 release version. Currently silently itching to try out beta 3.

    Any real fix for fonts on internal / external non-retina screens? Not just checkboxes or defaults write.

    It's unlikely Apple thinks this is broken.

    This is untrue, I normally download Apple updates with about minimum 80 MB/s and over (640-800Mbit/sec), an Apple update normally downloads in about half a minute.

    I have google fiber, and google usually clocks in at 500mbps on their network stuff.

    Running that command line helped to some extent, but not entirely, for example this website did not look better and neither did many others. This is why I went back to High Sierra on the non-retina MBA, which I normally use with a 24 inch Apple Cinema Display.

    I'm afraid so, too, planned obsolescence.

    He had a bad experience proabably and assumes its common. That said any idiot knows to have a fresh back up (I use carbon copy cloner) on hand whenever doing a major update.

    I’ve never had an update blow up on me, but it makes the update way less stressful regardless.

    You are already the third one disputing his comment, haven't heard from him since, yup, it's nonsense, plenty of places I can download at near to Max speeds.

    That's fairly surprising. You'd think that allowing such speeds would open themselves to getting unintentionally DDoSed by a pile of people with uber-fast internets. I would be very hesitant to allow such speeds on my own servers, to be completely honest.
