macOS Mojave was not a big update at launch, but it is now better and smarter thanks to regular updates. In reality, macOS Mojave has been through multiple software updates since its release, making it one of the best macOS releases so far. Apple recently released the fifth beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.6 after months of testing.
The new beta won’t bring about new features as it focuses on performance enhancements and bug fixes. As usual, a macOS beta is aimed at developers, giving them a taste of the new features ahead of a public release. However, if you are not a developer, it’s fine to try out the software.
Keep in mind that a beta version may include bugs and unexpected issues. So, we recommend you create a backup of your Mac before proceeding.
