    Hi All:

    After 5 years with my Mid-2014 MacBook Pro, the computer has finally started slowing down, warranting a replacement.

    That said, I’m on the Mojave developer beta program and I’ll be wanting to restore my new laptop from Time Machine backup on my current one.

    Will I need to set up the new computer “as new,” download the developer beta, and then restore from backup (from time machine on an external HDD)? Or can I simply restore from backup initially without updating the software on the new computer to the beta?

    Thanks for any input!

    You will have to get your new device on the same MacOS version as the one you have backed up and then restore.
