Beta 4 of MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 and iOS 12.2 Released for Testing
Apple has released the fourth beta versions of macOS Mojave 10.14.4, iOS 12.2, tvOS 12.2, and watchOS 5.2 to users participating in the beta testing programs for Apple system software. Typically the developer beta build rolls out first, soon followed by the equivalent as a public beta version.
iOS 12.2 beta includes a few new Animoji characters, like a tusked pig, giraffe, owl, and shark. There are also a handful of small changes to other aspects of iOS. iOS 12.2 will likely also include bug fixes and other enhancements as well.
MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta includes support for Touch ID activating Safari Autofill. Additionally, Safari supports an optional Dark Mode theme feature, allowing for when Dark Mode is enabled on the Mac for that to carry over to websites that adopt particular technical standards to support their own dark mode themes. Various bug fixes and security enhancements are almost certain to be included as well.
Mac users enrolled in the MacOS Mojave beta testing program can find macOS 10.14.4 beta 4 available now from the Software Update control panel in System Preferences.
iPhone and iPad users in the iOS beta testing program can find iOS 12.2 beta 4 available through the Software Update section of the Settings app.
tvOS and watchOS betas can be found for Apple TV and Apple Watch users in their respective settings apps as well.
There is no known timeline for when iOS 12.2 and macOS 10.14.4 will be available to the broader public, but generally speaking Apple releases a variety of beta updates before issuing a final version.
Apple is apparently going to be hosting a media event possibly focusing on rumored TV show plans towards the end of March or early April, and it’s possible the final versions of these system software releases will be available to the public sometime near then.
