September brought macOS Mojave 10.14 with a wide array of new features like Dark Mode. October saw the introduction of version 10.12.1 with Group FaceTime. And today there’s macOS 10.14.2 with… well, what are definitely some very minor improvements.

Apple also just introduced iOS 12.1.1 with improvements for FaceTime and Face ID. In addition, tvOS 12.1.1 was released with some minor bug fixes.

What’s new in macOS Mojave 10.14.2

Fans of Apple News should be happy to hear that it’s now much easier to transfer a story to the Safari web browser in the new version.

macOS 10.14.2 makes it possible to use Real-Time Text (RTT) when masking a call over a Wi-Fi connection. RTT enables people with hearing and/or speech impairments to exchange text messages in a phone call. 

The official changelog from Apple says:

The macOS Mojave 10.14.2 update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac, and is recommended for all users.

This update:

      • Adds RTT (real-time text) support for Wi-FI calling
      • Adds a menu item to News for opening a story in Safari
      • Resolves an issue that may prevent iTunes from playing media to third-party AirPlay speakers
