How to Update from macOS Mojave Beta to Official Version

Having relished the beta testing for several months, it's time to update macOS Mojave beta to the official release. Dive right in to get going!

Now that the long wait is eventually over, most of you would be all geared up to update macOS Mojave beta to the final version. Having been part of the beta testing for so long, I’m also in the same flight and look forward to putting my hands on the official macOS Mojave release.

Talking about the process, it involves a little bit of twist. Case in point, you won’t be able to switch to the final macOS release directly from the Software Update preference panel (from what I can see). So, how do you get through? Worry not. Despite the twist, jumping over to the public macOS version remains plain sailing. One important thing worth noting is that the process is the same for both developer and public beta testers. Let me walk you through the steps!
