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!
How to Update macOS Mojave Beta to Final Version
Step #1. Launch the Mac App Store on your Mac.
Step #2. Now, search for macOS Mojave and when it appears, click on View.
On the next screen, click on Get.
Step #3. Software Update preference panel will appear on the screen.
Once it has found the update, a pop-up will show up reading, “Are you sure you want to download macOS Mojave 10.14?”. Click on Download in the popup to confirm.
Step #4. Once the downloading is over, you should see “Install MacOS Mojave” window. Click on Continue to kickstart the Updating process.
That’s pretty much it! Now, wait patiently until the process is completed successfully.
What about the Beta Updates?
Now based on your preference, you can either keep on getting the latest beta updates or opt your Mac out of the beta program. The choice is your choice!
How to Opt-out Your Mac to Stop Getting macOS Mojave Beta Updates
Step #1. Launch System Preferences on your Mac.
Step #2. Now, click on Software Update.
Step #3. Next, click on Details that is right under the Software Update icon.
Step #4. Next up, you see a message saying, “This Mac is enrolled in the Apple Developer seed program. Do you want to restore default update settings?”
Click on Restore Defaults.
Step #5. Up next, you have to confirm using your Touch ID or password that you want to unenroll your Mac so that it stops getting the beta updates.
That’s done! Your Mac will no longer receive beta updates.
