Apple releases macOS Mojave update 10.14.5

Apple today just released a new update for macOS Mojave – version 10.14.5.

One of the smoothest Mojave updates so far, installing without issues on both of my real Macs and my Hackintosh machines.

Quicksync is still working for hardware h264 and hevc / h265 encoding and decoding.

Quicksync enabled under macOS 10.14.5 Mojave on Lenovo Y530 hackintosh.

You can update via the System Preferences app in macOS, or by downloading the 10.14.5 update package from the Apple website.

According to Apple, the update

…improves the stability and reliability of your Mac

and also adds Airplay 2 support.

As ever, it’s recommended to backup your boot drive, along with your EFI partition, before updating, using Carbon Copy Cloner or similar, so that you can roll back in case of any issues.
