Apple on Wednesday released the first beta of macOS 10.14.5 for developer testing, joining seeds of iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3.

To get the beta, users must be registered Apple developers and use the correct Developer Center profile. For those already in the developer stream, it can be downloaded using Mojave's Software Update tool.

Details of the latest macOS beta release are unknown, but it is believed that version 10.14.5 will be purely a maintenance update, cleaning up bugs and security flaws.

macOS 10.14.4 went live just this Monday, bringing with it things like Apple News+ support, an automatic Dark Mode in Safari, and new management options for push notifications. Some other highlights include air quality index readings in Maps for the U.S., UK and India, real-time text for phone calls made through a nearby iPhone, and second-generation AirPods compatibility.

The iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 betas incorporate Apple's redesigned TV app, laying the groundwork for Apple TV+ and Apple TV Channels. Within the iOS Wallet app, users can see a longer transaction history setting the stage for the Apple Card.
