Apple Releases macOS 10.14.6 with Focus on Bug and Security Fixes

Best macOS Mojave Features

Apple has released macOS 10.14.6, which is expected to be the last update for Mojave before moving on to macOS Catalina. The update focusses on fixing bugs and security issues.

To update macOS to the latest beta, you need to open System Preferences –> Software Update and follow the onscreen instructions. It is always recommended to update to the latest macOS as it fixes security issues and other bugs. The latest developer beta was released earlier this month.

Apple is all set to launch the macOS 10.15 Catalina this fall. The new macOS arrives with changes to core apps and is also expected to benefit creators. Firstly, the macOS Catalina offers standalone apps including Music, TV and Podcasts app. The new apps are expected to replace iTunes for Mac.

macOS Catalina also comes with Sidecar, a feature that allows you to use an iPad as a secondary display. This is likely to help artists mirror Mac screen on iPad and continue sketching using Apple Pencil on iPad. However, Sidecar is compatible with only newer MacBooks and iPads. In a bid to enhance digital well being, Apple has baked in a Screen Time feature. The best part is that this tool lets you check usage across all Apple devices.

On the security front, Apple is focussing on improving security by updating Gatekeeper. Meanwhile, Macs with T2 Security Chip will get Activation Lock which is essentially a kill switch. Furthermore, Project Catalyst will ensure that developers can easily port their iOS/iPadOS apps to Mac.
