Safari 14 also sports a new start screen which can be customized with a custom wallpaper, Siri website suggestions, your Reading List, and sites currently open on your other Apple devices.
Users running macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave can check the System Preferences app to update to Safari 14. Apple also rolled out iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7 to the public today.

No luck. I get an error message after accessing the upgrade under System>Software Update - using the "Other updates are available" It won't download for me on Mojave. Any ideas?
Hmm that’s strange. I haven’t seen much report about issues. Have you reached out to Apple Support?
