AtApple unveiled its next Mac operating system on Monday, .
If you're ready to use Dark Mode, Stacks, and theas well as the that Mojave will introduce, you do not need to wait until the official release of MacOS Mojave this fall. The daredevils (or those who have a second Mac or are willing to create a partition) can now use a beta version of Mojave.
Developer beta now, public beta end of June
MacOS Mojave developer preview is now available. If you're ready to settle for the flaws and instabilities of an unfinished operating system (and have an Apple ID and $ 99), you can now join the Apple Developer Program and install Mojave.
A fully baked and completely free beta will arrive in a few weeks. The public beta version is free for anyone with a halfway readable Mac and an Apple ID at the end of June. You can download it from Apple's beta software program page.
Apple will release the official version of MacOS Mojave this fall as a free update for Mac users.
Compatibility with MacOS Mojave
According to Apple, MacOS Mojave will run on Macs from mid-2012 or later, as well as 2010 and 2012 Mac Pro with recommended metal-capable graphics cards. To check your Mac's era, click the Apple Icon in the upper-left corner and click About this Mac . The year of your Mac is listed next to its name above its core specifications.
A word of caution
No matter how anxious you might be to whirl Mojave, you should exercise some caution before installing it. As with any beta software, MacOS Mojave can cause bugs and strange behaviors that could make it difficult to wait for the final version or a better plan. If you can not wait, then I suggest you install the beta on a secondary Mac if you have one, or otherwise on a separate partition on your primary Mac.
Creating a partition is quick and easy:
- Start Disk Utility
- Select the disk you want to partition (usually the topmost option and named Macintosh HD), and then click Button at the top of the window
- Click Partition (as opposed to adding volume) if Disk Utility is not set up for automatic selection.
- Click the " + " button under the "Layout Layout" layout.
- Choose a size for the new partition by changing the size of a pie chart for your hard disk (MacOS Mojave is supposedly 4.8 GB in size)) and give it a name, say, Mojave beta.
- You can leave the format as Mac OS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted) .
- Click Apply and wait a minute or two for the new partition to create.
Backup before you start
Even if you install it on a partition or on an old Mac that is no longer critical. I would urge you to back up your Mac before you install the beta. With Time Machine, Apple could not make it easier to back up.
