Apple releases macOS Mojave 10.14.5

Apple on Monday released version 10.14.5 of macOS Mojave, an OS update with a few fixes, but the main new feature is AirPlay 2 support.

With AirPlay 2, your Mac will be able to share videos, photos, music, and other items to AirPlay-enable devices, such as TVs.

Also included in the update:

  • An Apple News+ fix that allows you to follow a magazine

  • Improved audio latency on 2018 MacBook Pro laptops

  • An OmniOutliner and OmniPlan fix for displaying documents

  • Insecure Bluetooth connections are disabled

  • A fix for unlocking FileVault volumes that are not able to reset the user account password

  • A fix for the InstalledApplicationList MDM command

You can get the details of the update in the release notes. Apple also has a document that details the security updates.

Apple also issued a iTunes Device Support Update, which “ensures proper updating and restoring for iOS devices using iTunes for Mac.”
