One day after the public release of macOS Mojave, Apple released a beta version of the first point update for developers of the operating system for testing on Tuesday.
Now available for download from the Apple developer website, the first macOS 10.14.1 beta with a build number of 18B45d seems to be a minor update from the newly launched Mac operating system.
Apple has not yet released release information for the software, although earlier beta release patterns suggest that version 10.14.1 contains bug fixes and general performance improvements. Also on the table is support for Group FaceTime, a marquee feature that was initially planned to launch with iOS 12 and macOS Mojave 10.14 this month, but was stripped of iOS beta in August.
With Group FaceTime, which was presented at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, 32 users can participate in one video conference call on their iOS or macOS devices. In release notes to developers last month, Apple could not release a release timeline for the video calling feature, only saying it was expected to debut later this fall. The function returned to the beta track last week with iOS 12.1, indicating a launch in the near future.
The latest MacOS Mojave beta from Apple also includes a revised download management system. After a first download from the MacOS Developer Beta Access Utility, developers can install new releases from the Software Updates panel in System Preferences as new builds become available.
