Apple has released the second beta for macOS Mojave 10.14.2 to developers. The new release is available via Mac App Store for users who have enrolled their Macs in Apple’s Developer Beta program.

macOS Mojave 10.14.2 beta

macOS Mojave 10.14 was released in September with a number of new features which include a Dark Mode, improvements to Finder and QuickLook, Stacks for file organization on desktop, new apps like Apple News, Voice Memos, Stocks and Home, dynamic wallpapers, new screenshot tool, and much more. Apple released Mojave 10.14.1 with Group FaceTime and new Emojis, a feature which was announced at WWDC 2018, but was later delayed.

macOS Mojave 10.14.2 developer beta 1 was initially released on November 1, but Apple pulled it from Apple Developer Center without any explanation. The build was later released on November 2. Apple has shared the following as a new feature in this build:

macOS 10.14.2 requires that publicly-trusted Transport Layer Security (TLS) server authentication certificates issued after October 15, 2018 meet the Certificate Transparency policy to be evaluated as trusted on Apple platforms. (41175212)

We are currently installing and testing the new build and will update this post if we find any new user-facing features.

Download macOS Mojave 10.14.2 beta

To download and install macOS Mojave 10.14.2 beta, you would need to register to Apple’s Developer Program. Alternatively, you can download the beta access utility that lets you enroll your Mac into the beta program. Once you download and install this utility, simply go to System Preferences > Software Update on your Mac to download and install the beta.

After every developer beta release, Apple also rolls out a public beta which has the same features. Public builds are normally better in stability than their developer counterparts, however, the difference is rarely noticeable. You can sign up for public betas on Apple’s website.
