Apple has just rolled out macOS Mojave 10.14.5 beta 5 to public beta testers. If beta testing is your thing or enjoys digging into the pre-release software, you would like to install macOS Mojave 10.14.5 public beta 5.
If you had used the public beta of macOS in the past, you don’t need to need to sign up all over again. All you have to do to get started is just sign in with the same Apple ID. However, if you are a newbie, you’ll have to start from scratch.
Note: Before starting off, make sure to back up your Mac. Click on Time Machine icon in the menu bar → Backup Now. And let the back up be completed successfully. Alternately, you can head to System Preferences → Time Machine → Select Back Up Disk → choose the preferred disk.
