Apple dropped a big batch of new beta software on developers this morning, including new builds for macOS Mojave, tvOS 12 and watchOS 12.

The new betas come just two weeks after Apple unveiled its new software at WWDC 2018, bringing a bunch of changes to the Mac, Apple TV and Apple Watch.

Registered developers can grab the new betas directly from Apple’s online developer portal. macOS Mojave beta 2 can also be installed via a software update if you have the previous beta installed.

The release notes for the updates don’t mention any major changes, but we’ll probably find a lot of new changes once we get the updates installed.

What’s new in macOS Mojave

One of the improvements in terms of day-to-day functionality is a revised Finder. This offers a new Gallery View, alongside the existing icon, column and list options. Gallery gives you a large preview for each image as you scroll through, along with various Quick Actions for editing the files without having to open them.

There’s also Markup integration for the existing Quick Look feature, improved screenshots, and the ability to more easily share photos from your iPhone using Continuity.

Apple also included a new Dark Mode and completely redesigned the Mac App Store.

macOS Mojave, watchOS 12 and tvOS 12 are set for public release later this fall.
