If you have just received or are soon getting a brand new 2018 Retina MacBook Air anytime in the near future, don’t miss out on an important supplemental software update that is available for the machine.
Apple has issued the supplemental software update specific to the new Retina MacBook Air, labeled as “macOS Mojave 10.14.1 Supplemental Update for MacBook Air (2018)”, and it’s available immediately.
The precise details of the update are not specifically clarified with the update, but it weighs in at 1.46 GB and is said to “improve the stability and reliability of MacBook Air (2018) computers, and is recommended for all users.”
Given that the new MacBook Air ships (as of this writing) preinstalled with macOS Mojave 10.14.1, the update is not merely the same MacOS 10.14.1 update available for general Mojave users. This could indicate some optimization was made specific to the machine, or perhaps a bug or issue was discovered that is resolved with the supplemental update specific to the new MacBook Air. Or the software update could be for some other purpose.
Remember, updating system software in MacOS is done through the ‘Software Update’ control panel within System Preferences, which you can find through the Apple menu.
Installing the supplemental update requires a reboot to complete.
If any additional details about the “macOS Mojave 10.14.1 Supplemental Update for MacBook Air (2018)” are found, we’ll update this post with more information. Likewise, if you have any info about this update, or any others you see in the software update control panel of Mojave, feel free to share below in the comments.
But in the meantime, for new Retina MacBook Air users, go ahead and install the supplemental update.
Update: Retina MacBook Air (2018) users can also choose to download the “macOS Mojave 10.14.1 Supplemental Update for MacBook Air (2018)” package directly here from Apple.
