Finally, Apple has released its latest operating system for Macs and MacBooks, which is on the beta stage. Now, you can download and install macOS Mojave Public Beta on your computer. Apple has been providing the normal users to test public betas for macOS from several years now as a way for those curious in examining out the forthcoming applications on their Macs, and giving feedback.
The final release of macOS 10.14 Mojave will be available later on this year. But, if you are like me, who can’t wait until the final release, you can try the Beta version on your computer. In the event you do not need your Mac or MacBook crashing randomly even though you’re working, we would strongly advise waiting until the last steady release of macOS 10.14 Mojave after this calendar year, or perhaps wait a couple of weeks later to be completely certain there aren’t any issues or bugs.
