Apple today seeded the fifth developer beta of iOS 12.2, two weeks after it seeds the third developer beta of iOS 12.2, at the same time, it also made fifth developer beta of watchOS 5.2, tvOS 12.2, and macOS 10.14.4 available for testing.

iOS 12.2 introduced Apple News to Canadian users and added several new Animoji characters, including giraffe, shark, owl, and boar. Also in iOS 12.2, Apple tweaked the Wallet app with a new interface for Apple Pay Cash, added more security options to Safari, as well as display warnings when visiting a http website,

Furthermore, Apple redesigned the icon of Apple News, which now includes the white background, and the middle is an abstract letter "N", modifying the app icon indicates the upcoming arrival of Apple’s news magazine subscription service, which is likely to announced at the March 25th event that will be held at Apple Park, where the company is also set to unveil its TV streaming service.

Apple also fine-tuned the Control Center interface, with the icon for the Remote Control now resembles Apple TV Siri Remote logo. The UI inside the control has been tweaked as well, and the TV and microphone buttons have been interchanged: the button that fast forwards and rewinds for 10 seconds during playback returns to the bottom corner of the touch area.

Otherwise, watchOS 5.2 introduces a new watchface for the Apple Watch Hermès models; tvOS 12.2 now let you ask Siri to play specific media on an Apple TV from an iOS device; macOS 10.14.4 includes Safari Autofill feature and automatic dark mode.

Apple today released the third developer beta of macOS 10.14.4 update with build number 18E194d, it comes two weeks after the second beta of macOS 10.14.4 was released to developers. You can install the beta via Software Update mechanism in System Preferences if you have registered through Apple's Developer Center.


macOS 10.14.4 extends the Apple News service to Canada for the first time, and it also supports Safari auto-fill with Touch ID. The update also introduced the automatic dark theme for Safari. In other words, if you turn on dark mode, visit websites that offer a dark theme, it will be enabled automatically. Oh, and it appears that the latest version includes support for Smart TVs in the Home app.

According to AppleInsider user MacPro, the latest beta fixed the AMD GPU driver issue that conflicted with Photoshop's use of the GPU for accelerated filters such as liquify

We should expect Apple to release the macOS 10.14.4 update in March, alongside iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2 and tvOS 12.2, even though Apple didn't seed new beta to these software updates today

Apple's has been selling the LG UltraFine 4K and 5K displays for a while now on Apple.com, it was launched after the 2016 MacBook Pro models went on sale. And now, according to French blog MacGeneration, LG's unreleased & new UltraFine 5K display was found in the latest macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta 2.



The hardware identifier of the new one is 0x5b74 instead of 0x5b11 and includes an icon with it, that is the same as the UltraFine 5K that is currently sold. However, because it is a new model, it is likely to be a replacement. The finding was spotted by Pierre Dandumont, a journalist for Duck PC Hardware.
Translated: Hey, there is a new LG screen in the last beta of MacOS. It has the same image as the 5k UltraFine, but not the same reference. (0x5b74 instead of 0X5B11)
Apple and LG have worked together on these monitors when it's launched in 2016, it hasn't updated for 2 years, it's about time for a new one. Plus there is also a rumor claimed that a 34-inch UltraWide display may be available in the future. Hence, if you are preparing to get an LG monitor real soon, thus we recommend you to wait for the new one.

Apple has released the second developer beta of iOS 12.2, macOS Mojave 10.14.4, watchOS 5.2 and tvOS 12.2, two weeks away after it seeded the first developer beta.



It was discovered in the beta 1 that iOS 12.2 brings Apple News to Canadian users in English or French using the iPhone and iPad. iOS 12.2 also started supporting AirPlay 2 and HomeKit for third-party TVs, and redesigned the TV remote feature in the Control Center. Apple also tweaked the Apple Pay Cash, Safari Privacy, and Downtime feature in the Screen Time.

As for beta 2, it includes four new Animoji characters: giraffe, shark, owl, and boar, with the new addition, there are now a total of 24 Animojis available for user to choose from. Animoji takes advantages of the True-Depth Camera to express your emotions through a variety of 3D animated emoji characters.

Regrading other operating systems: in tvOS 12.2, you can ask Siri to play music and tv content on your HomeKit device, while macOS Mojave 10.14.4 adds Safari auto-filling with Touch ID, and we haven't found any new features in the latest watchOS 5.2 software update.

Apple has just released its fifth update to the iOS 12 operating system, iOS 12.1.3, you can download the update through Settings - General - Software Update. iOS 12.1.3 is a bug fix update that addressed issues for HomePod, iPad Pro, CarPlay, Messages, Photos, and so on.

This update:

- Fixes an issue in Messages that could impact scrolling through photos in the Details view
- Addresses an issue where photos could have striped artifacts after being sent from the Share Sheet
- Fixes an issue that may cause audio distortion when using external audio input devices on iPad Pro (2018)
- Resolves an issue that could cause certain CarPlay systems to disconnect from iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max

This release also includes bug fixes for HomePod. This update:

- Fixes an issue that could cause HomePod to restart
- Addresses an issue that could cause Siri to stop listening
Apple also released macOS 10.14.3, watchOS 5.1.3, and tvOS 12.1.2 today, and all of three software updates focused on bug fixes and performance improvements. As always, you can download them via Software Update in the Settings app on your devices. We will update this post if a new feature is being discovered.

Apple has seeded the first beta of iOS 12.1.3 to developers, a few days after they pushed iOS 12.1.2 to fix eSIM activation bugs and patent issues with Qualcomm in China, which removed the app closing animation, as confirmed by the company today, though Qualcomm says Apple is still violating it, so the software beta available is being labeled as beta 2, iOS 12.1.2 should be the beta 1.


As far as iOS 12.1.3 concerned, we were unable to discover what changes it implemented, it’s likely to be a mirror update focused on bug fixes and performance improvements. As always, developers can download the new iOS 12.1.3 beta with the proper configuration profile has been installed in place. At the same time, beta 2 of macOS 10.14.3 and tvOS 12.1.2 also available for beta testing.

If you found anything new in these betas, let us know in the comment!

According to the identification code found in the latest macOS Mojave system update, AMD is likely to further expand its Radeon Pro Vega graphics card product lineup for the Mac refresh in early 2019. As reported by Phoronix, patches for Linux kernel drivers were found last Friday which include references to many PCI IDs that do not correspond to the currently available Vega graphics cards



Apple added AMD's Vega 16 and Vega 20 graphics cards to the graphics upgrade options of the new MacBook Pro in mid-November. Although new graphics cards are popular with users who want higher performance, the latest evidence hint that Apple may have begun to consider to introduce these unreleased Vega graphics cards for a future Mac update.

The new Vega 20 PIC ID is determined as 0x66A4, while the Vega 10 version is defined as 0x6869, 0x668A, 0x686B, 0x686D, 0x686E, and 0x686F. Although the new PCI ID strongly suggests that AMD is preparing to release more Vega series in the future, it could perhaps be a variant of existing or upgraded products. It is also possible that these are internal test products are made for compatibility purposes and will not be released.

For Apple, it should be unlikely that a new graphics card option will be added soon after the new units have just been updated. Though Apple used to use laptop parts in the iMac, as the existing product line has not been updated for a long time, so it's a high potential that they could refresh iMac next year.

Following its official release of iOS 12.1.1, watchOS 5.1.2, macOS 10.14.2, and tvOS 12.1.1, Apple has seeded the first developer update of iOS 12.1.2, watchOS 5.1.3, macOS 10.14.3, and tvOS 12.1.2. Developers who Registered through Apple Developer Center can download the update via OTA.


The release notes for these upcoming updates only highlight bug fixes and performance improvements, however, we expect to fix an issue that bother many users, in which they found that the iPhone failed to connect to cellular network after updating the iOS 12.1.1, and affecting some app, it's understood that the problem already known by Apple engineers, so iOS 12.1.2 is likely to fix that bug.

Asides from that, no major changes or features being discovered at the moment, if we found anything new, we will update the post right way. We will be also pleased if you comment down below your findings.

Apple today released the first developer beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.1, just one day after it rolled out the official version of macOS Mojave. Developers required to have a proper profile on your machines, and then install the update via System Preferences -> Software Update.


We should expect Apple included the Group FaceTime in this update since beta 1 version iOS 12.1 and watchOS 5.1 already had the feature. Group FaceTime, as its name implies, will allow you to video call up to 32 at once, which would be ideal for business conferences.

Aside from that, the update will also likely to bring performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't addressed in the first release of macOS Mojave. As for when it would release to the public users, we expect it would be in October, or perhaps at the October event, where rumors suggests Apple to announce new Macs and iPad Pros.

macOS Mojave featured with much-anticipated dark mode and dynamic wallpaper features. It supports the "Stack" desktop management system so files can be automatically organized according to a certain rule. Plus the new "Gallery" viewing mode, as well as iOS apps like Apple News, Stock, Voice Memos, Home came to the macOS platform.

Apple today released the official version of the macOS 10.14 Mojave to all Mac users. You can update your Mac to the macOS Mojave via System Preferences - Software Update. Users who want to download and install the macOS 10.14 Mojave are better off making backups to prevent crashes from happening.


MacOS Mojave adds the highly-anticipated dark mode and implements a so-called Dynamic Desktop feature, where wallpapers will change over time. The latest operating system designed for Macs also gained the Stacks desktop rearrange function so desktop files can be automatically organized according to a certain rule such as dates and file types.

The Finder has added a new "Gallery" browsing mode, and the Quick View feature supports more controls. iOS apps like Apple News, Stock, Home and Voice Memos are also coming to the macOS platform.

macOS Mojave can be installed on 2015 and later MacBook models, 2012 and later MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iMac models, the 2017 iMac Pro, as well as Mac Pros from late 2013. Stay tune for more details.

Back to My Mac, a feature that rarely been used will drop support for Macs that are running macOS Mojave when Apple pushed the update this fall. Instead, the company recommends users to use iCloud Drive, screen sharing, and Apple Remote Desktop.


For those who aren't familiar about the feature, Back to My Mac let Mac owners connect one Mac from another Mac for file transfers and screen sharing purposes, as well as set up a network of Mac machines with two or more Macs, However, it's too complicated when using, so Apple decided to shut down this service in the long run.

As it outlined on its Support page, Apple advises you choose alternatives for file access, screen sharing, and remote desktop access. For instance, options like iCloud Drive, Apple Remote Desktop (though it cost you an $80), and third-party services like TeamViewer.

This is not only one feature that will drop support in macOS Mojave, all of the 32-bit apps will also no longer available at the Mac App Store.
