Download macOS Mojave Beta 1 Now
Apple has unveiled macOS Mojave at the annual WWDC 2018 conference, and as usual the developer crowd gains first access to beta system software.
Any Mac user who is enrolled in the developer beta testing program can now access and download macOS Mojave developer beta 1. You will need one of the Macs compatible with macOS Mojave to be able to install the system software.
Current Mac developers can download the macOS Mojave beta installer from the Apple Developer Center. After it has been installed, updates to macOS Mojave beta will arrive from the Mac App Store as usual.
- Go to developer.apple.com downloads page and log in to your Apple Developer account if you have not done so already
- From the Mac section of the webpage, download the macOS Mojave beta access utility
- Find the “macOS 10.14 Beta” available to download from the Mac App Store
It’s possible that anyone with access to the macOS Mojave beta installer will be able to install the software on their computer, but that is generally a bad idea as the release is intended for developers who are testing their applications for compatibility with the beta versions of the operating system.
Early beta system software is notoriously unreliable, and thus it is not recommended for most users to install the Mojave developer beta on their Macs, and certainly not to install on a primary workstation or production machine.
Always back up a Mac before installing any system software update, and particularly when running beta system software.
A public beta of macOS Mojave is likely to debut in the coming months as well. If you’re a more casual user and you’re interested in testing out MacOS Mojave, it would be better to wait for the public beta version to arrive since it will likely be more stable than the initial early developer beta builds.
Developers also have access to iOS 12 beta 1 along with the first betas of watchOS 5 and tvOS 12.
MacOS Mojave includes a variety of new features, along with a Dark Mode interface option, and is scheduled to be released this fall.
