Apple will release macOS Mojave on September 24

The macOS Mojave release date has been confirmed by Tim Cook at Special Event conclusion, with it coming a week after iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.

The next version of the Mac operating system, macOS Mojave, will be officially released on Monday, September 24. From that date it will come out of beta testing and will also be pre-installed on all new Macs.

During his closing remarks at this year's Apple Special Event, Tim Cook said: "We've got a great new update for the Mac with macOS Mojave. All-new Dark Mode, updates to Desktop and Finder. Enhanced privacy and security and a completely redesigned Mac App Store."

This timing is on a par with last year's macOS High Sierra which was featured in the September 12, 2017 Apple Special Event and launched on September 25.

Apple released the "gold masters" — or last version before release barring any disasters — for user testing after the "Gather round" iPhone event.

Mojave has already been in both developer and public beta testing since shortly after the WWDC keynote in June. AppleInsider took a look at the first beta release.

Since then we've learned that a key feature of both macOS Mojave and iOS 12, Group FaceTime, will not ship with the September launches. It will be added in a update later this year.
