Hot on the heels of Apple’s big batch of beta software released this morning, the company has also seeded the third beta of macOS Mojave to developers.

macOS Mojave brings a number of UI changes to the Mac, including a new Dark Mode and Dynamic Wallpapers. It also comes with a new way to install updates.

To install macOS Mojave beta 3, developers first need to download the proper installation file to their Mac from Apple’s Developer Center. Once that’s complete you can install future updates through the Software Update option in the Apple menu bar.

The release notes for the new beta don’t mention any big changes, but there are sure to be a few UI tweaks at least. If you’re not a registered developer, you can still try the first public beta for macOS Mojave.

What’s inside macOS Mojave?

Other new Mojave features include a new “Stacks” option. The feature organizes files into neat stacks on the side of the screen. You can create Stacks based on file type, date, or tags.

The Mac App Store has been rebuilt from the ground up too. There’s more emphasis on discovery with a series of new tabs offering curated selections according to what you might want to use them for.

macOS Mojave brings some big security updates too. To stop people from tracking you online, Apple introduced a feature that makes it harder to fingerprint the characteristics of your device so that every Mac looks the same.
