The macOS Mojave update could completely change how you use your Mac. Many users will want to install the free update today, but some Mac owners are better off waiting a few days before installing the latest macOS Mojave update. With the release of macOS 10.14.3 there are more reasons to install the new update, but there are still a few reasons to hold off.

A new macOS 10.14.3 Supplemental update arrived recently, adding fixes onto the existing update. This is a new version of macOS 10.14.3 that includes fixes for the Group FaceTime security issue that prompted the release of iOS 12.1.4.

Apple continues to roll out small updates to macOS Mojave months after the initial release. These small updates include important fixes and small new features. In most cases the small updates are worth installing soon after release, but you may still want to wait a few days, just to make sure everything is working fine with the upgrade. This guide can help you decide if it is worth installing right now.

macOS Mojave is available on Macs as old as 2012, but it’s not available to all Macs that could run macOS High Sierra. There are performance improvements, new apps, security upgrades and loads of new features as part of this upgrade.

Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Install macOS Mojave;

  1. Don’t Install if You Aren’t Prepared
  2. Don’t Install if You Are Worried About macOS Mojave Problems
  3. Don’t Install if You Use a Really old Mac
  4. Don’t Install if You’re Traveling

Here’s Why You Should Update to macOS Mojave;

  1. Install for Dark Mode
  2. Install for Group FaceTime
  3. Install for New Emoji
  4. Install for New Mac Apps
  5. Install for Desktop Upgrades
  6. Install for Security Fixes
  7. Install for Continuity Camera & New ScreenShots
  8. Install for Privacy Upgrades
  9. Install for Emoji in Mail and Siri Upgrades
  10. Install if You Have macOS High Sierra Problems

The macOS Mojave 10.14.3 update arrived in late January alongside iOS 12.1.3 and right ahead of watchOS 5.1.3. This small update is mainly focused on security fixes and bug fixes. If you skipped the previous major update you will get new emoji, Group FaceTime, bug fixes and more. the new supplemental update arrived in early February.

You can downgrade to macOS High Sierra from macOS Mojave if you don’t like it. There is no time limit like on iOS 12, but it is a process and takes some time so do your research before you upgrade.

There are many good reasons to install macOS Mojave on your Mac today or to install the macOS Mojave 10.14.3 update. Before you start, you need to consider these reasons you shouldn’t upgrade yet. if you are already on macOS 10.14.3, it’s a good idea to install the supplemental update.

Install macOS Mojave for Dark Mode & Dynamic Desktop

Install macOS Mojave for Dark Mode & Dynamic Desktop

One of the biggest macOS Mojave features that you will see when you install the update is Dark Mode and the next is the dynamic desktop. 

With the macOS Mojave Dark Mode you get a better focus on the app you are working in, while the rest of the system fades into the background. This is built-in to Apple apps, and they allow third-party support so you can expect to see widespread use. If you prefer the normal brighter view, you can keep that. 

No matter which mode you use, the desktop will change during the day, based on the time. You'll see the sun or the moon move across a sand dune. This is an optional feature, and it's kind of like a Live Photo. This will only work with Apple official desktop backgrounds.

    my Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 didn’t work with Mojave – the upgrade charges for features I don’t need.

    Please define “really old.” Does my 2012 iMac fit that description?
