I was putting off upgrading from High Sierra, which was working nicely with everything on my late 2013 iMac - now I regret updating to Mojave. Simply awful - bug-ridden, slow ui, tempramental with Wacom tablet & external usb enclosure, to name a few issues. If you are running High Sierra with little to no issues, stick with it - Mojave is a kludge.

I guess MacUpdate is too busy to do what they do? There's been TWO Updates since this last one.

NOTE, Apple released TWO different 10.14.6 Supplemental Updates, one on Aug 1, and another on Aug 26, 2019. To confuse matters, both share the exact same name, and the download link is the same (basically they slipped streamed the second update in). Update #1 will update your system to Build 18G87, update #2 to Build 18G95. If you're wondering why your Mac is prompting you again to install the Supplemental update, this is why. If you installed the Supplemental PRIOR to Aug 26, but aren't getting prompted to install again (i.e. #2), you may want to get #2 and install anyways, as it sounds like there was a bug regression or incomplete fix in the #1. https://support.apple.com/kb/DL2015?locale=en_US&viewlocale=en_US

Can anyone provide a direct link to Mojave 10.14.6? I'm sick and tired of trying to download it from the Mac App Store. I need the full installer. On one machine, it downloads a full installer, but it's Mojave 10.4.5 instead of the most current version. WTF? On another machine, it downloads a ~23 MB installer instead of the full installer. Geez. It feels like I have crossed over into the Windows camp. Way to go, Apple.

Apple issued Security Updates 2019-002 10.13.6 High Sierra, and also Security Update 2019-002 10.12.6 Sierra - They have put the Sierra update on Apple's Support Download page, but the one for High Sierra says it has a creation date of Dec.8 2018!!! Direct download links for both would be much appreciated.

WTF is wrong with Apple these days? I was fine with Sierra because of everything I read about the Bugs in High Sierra. I finally figured I'd upgrade to Mojave but I had to Upgrade to High Sierra first... and that install hosed my Boot Drive.

It would appear that almost every Apple update has become cosmetic. A great deal of the normal functionality of Mac OS is slowly disappearing, with much of what has made Mac OS so good.. now gone. They have changed direction and lost their focus on those of us who use our Mac's on a daily basis to achieve various tasks. The newer OS does not introduce a collection of really useful apps, and ways to make your Mac run both faster and smoother. Apple needs to take stock of its users, especially those of us who need a smart and stable OS for every day use. Some of the more recent changes have been both good and useful.. but many have appeared to be irrelevant and almost pointless.

Updater Issues
==========
10.14.3 Auto Update does not work for me as of today, nor Apple's combo updater nor even Recover reinstall.

Says the update from 10.14.2 cannot be installed on my disk. I am running a high end iMac with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB external Samsung SSD as the boot disk. I use HFS+ rather than APFS as APFS was causing some problems with writing very large files.

At present I have yet to try an altogether new clean install ... errrr.

MacBookPro9,1 (15" MBP mid 2012) running Mac OS X Mojave v10.14.2 (18C54). The 10.14.3 Combo Update (downloaded from https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1992?locale=en_CA ) refused to recognize my machine as "meeting the requirements" for using the 10.14.3 update. Yes, I had plenty (over 200 GB) of free disk space. Yes, the MacBookPro9,1 is still officially supported for the latest OS software (after all, it was happily running 10.14.2). Blatant Apple FAIL! Eventually installed using System\ Preferences->Software\ Update, which went happily about its business.

Not especially pleased with Mojave at this stage. 1. APFS is still not ready for prime time for certain disk intensive applications (not unexpected given it's a new file system); 2. App Store redesign appears meant for persons under 12-years old by some marketing department maven. 3. Setting up the new security model is a pain in the a** providing too little feedback to users and to app developers as well. 4. Dark mode is not fully implemented across Apple's own applications. For example, if I chose to Share a document via email, while in dark mode, the shared text is black on a black background, the computer equivalence of invisible ink. 5. Whereas APFS provides for a lot of potential improvements to the Finder, there are still none in this second APFS iteration. 6. Apple in their wisdom have removed a great many little features that were very useful to many users, including BackToMyMac and remote Apple Airport management. It seems like they are trying to dumb down macOS. 7. Yet some functions are ridiculously unintuitive. For example, I still cannot figure out how to easily invoke multi-party call on FaceTime Mac and iOS. 8. Messages continues to be a pain in a variety of ways.

Oh why did Apple kill the old iChat with its ease of use, terrific multi-party calling features, iChat Theater, etc. For that matter why did Apple kill off the old photo sharing capabilities of .Mac.

And, boy, we could sure use a Mac based App for organizing our iOS screens. I must spend an enormous amount of time reorganizing my screens (icons) after a clean install. This is the 21st Century. The problem is Apple does not want to make it easy or simply does not care about its customers' hassles.

And finally, change for the sake of change is bad.

Yet Apple is getting in the mood so that we loyalists think Apple is progressing. Some of the new 3D icon designs are not impressive.

It may be time to return to the human-computer interaction design specialists, the specialist of old, who thought hard about how we use machines, why and thus how. That's how Xerox came up with the mouse ... a still brilliant invention for getting work done.

Installs and initially speeds your Mac up.

After signifiant use you will notice that it corrupts files (deletes their data, search your disk for 0 KB files), has intense Finder slow downs taking seconds to open folder with little or nothing in them, has Messages Pinwheels of Death (PWODs) constantly. Have had to re-install this repeatedly... so many times that I made an installer thumb drive for re-installs.

Just like MS Windows now... Got macOS problems? -> reboot (aka command-alt-delete in Windows speak). Still have macOS problems? -> Reinstall Mojave over Mojave...

Interesting how after loading Mojave, there is no option to review it in the App Store now. Even tried re-downloading the installer and still no Write Review shows for Mojave in the Mac App Store when running Mojave's Mac App Store. Intentional? Heinlein's Razor...

and note that the using the system recovery capability (booting with cmd-R) to re-install Mojave over Mojave is not the same as booting from thumb disk and running the install from the App Store downloaded Mojave turned into a bootable thumb drive.

But it is more stable than High Sierra.

Insanely ... Frustrating

I am currently running Mojave 10.14.2 since my last automatic upgrade from Apple. And I am NOT best pleased. My Mac came with El Capitain when purchased in 2016, was promptly changed for High Sierra and now I have the slowest OS of all running! I seriously thought I would be patient after the initial download and wait from someone to quickly address the sluggishness and various bugs in the 10.14 version but things seemed to have gotten even slower since last week and my 10.14.2 upgrade. I'm fed up with the time it's taking to open various apps and am sick of watching the beach-ball turn each time I want to open a regular app. I don't run games or films on my system and use it only for administration purposes or for regular Internet searches. It really shouldn't be this slow and it's annoying! I have worked for years with the principle that if it ain't broke, then don't fix it! I was seriously really happy with High Sierra but no longer have a smile on my face with Mojave

Mojave broke my 2013 iMac's camera and mic. They worked fine before installing Mojave. I've tried several "fixes" from sources online and none of them worked. I've also tried doing a clean install of Mojave by wiping my hard drive. On top of that, dark mode styling is horrible. At least they give you an option for both light and dark. This is the worst OS release I've seen from Apple.

Tried to install High Sierra so I could then install Mojave on a 2010 Mac Pro. It hosed my Boot Drive. It gets 80% though the installation and shuts down. And it won't let me start from my other Boot Drive.

Updating three completely different Macs (iMac Retina 5K, MacBook Pro 2015 Retina, 2014 Mini), each from 10.13 to Mojave, every update went smoothly, and they all continue to perform as expected. I'm not particularly fond of the dark mode, but the fine-tuning "under the hood" seems to have all three Macs running far smoother than before. The most recent bump to 10.14.1 was also without issues. Mojave has not been derailed by odd symlinks, unique hardware, or other customizations.

Is this really GM software? Rendered my (supported) laptop unusable. What is Apple thinking saying this will work with a 2012 i7 MacBook Pro? Thunderbolt dock would not send signal to monitor (verified not a hardware fault with different laptop), constant beachballs, everything laggy. Maybe this is fine for brand new computers, but for an older but still supported Mac, Mojave is a horrible experience even if Apple says it's officially supported. Stay far away unless major fixes happen.

After having suppressed the "apps" into Itunes, they have made big changes into the App Store which are not in favor of developers and users: new applications are not shown anymore, only the 200 best rated, so it is impossible to know what is new. Sometime the version number and date of release is not displayed. Disappointing.

Once again it's time for me to give my usual words of wisdom about OS upgrades, this is not my first rodeo, I've been doing Mac operating system updates/upgrades since the mid 80's.

1) Do not try to upgrade the current bootable partition when booted from the same partition. Things go MUCH smoother if you boot from a partition OTHER than the one you are upgrading. Hard drive space is so cheap, external drives are available for under $50. Cloning software is readily available, in many cases free, and work extremely well with proven track records. There is no excuse not to have extra Mac bootable partitions, either on your main boot drive, or an external drive.

Either clone your current working partition or create a new one by doing a fresh install. A fresh install of Mojave will easily fit in under 30GB of space. Even if you clone your current working partition, no matter how large it is, you don't have to clone the whole thing, just operating system. Leave out all unnecessary apps. It will fit in under 30 GB of space.

30GB is nothing when you can buy 1TB and 2TB external drives for under $50 on sale from any Office you know what store in Your Town USA any day of the week, or A^&zon, New%gg, BBuy.

Using this method (booting from another drive or partition other than the one I want to update/upgrade) I RARELY have any issues at all.

2) When an app developer hasn't confirmed their app works with the new macOS, don't go upgrading and then expect the app to work, or complain afterwards ,when it doesn't. If a developer says upgrade the app BEFORE upgrading the OS, there is a reason, and don't say 'Oh, they just want to pick my pocket for updates every time Apple changes the OS. The only thing these developers do is just change the version numbers the program is compatible with.' I won't say that SOME developers don't do this, but the vast majority actually have to make changes to their app with each OS, often significant changes, changes that require new development, testing, QA, and so. Apple has a LONG history of changing technologies from release to release, sometimes right up to the last minute. So, when a developer doesn't have a compatible release of their app on DAY ONE that an Apple macOS upgrade is available, it's because even if they tested on beta releases of the OS, they want to be sure Apple didn't change something at the last minute that blows their app up.

3) Don't freakin' upgrade your day to day WORKING environment blindly, if you don't want to lose data. Again, with disk space being so available, clone your working environment, upgrade the clone copy first to make sure all is well. If no issues, great, clone the test partition back to your working partition and move on. NO risk to your working data or setup, NONE.

4) Broken record; backup your data/system before any major upgrade. I used to feel sorry for people who lost their data; no more, after 35+ years in tech, I'm jaded now. No backup, data loss, your fault, not Apple's. It's leading edge technology....and guess what, s&*t happens, even with the best planning. No, Apple didn't do it on purpose, for pete's sake. All those Apple programmers are just LIKE YOU, they have mortgages to pay, kids to put through college, elderly parents they have to take care of...they need their jobs...no, they didn't do it on purpose just to mess with people.

Mojave has fixed a lot of the rough edges that had accumulated since from Yosemite through High Sierra. IMO, it's the smoothest, and feels the 'nicest' macOS since ...oh, since maybe Snow Leopard, which I 'LOVED'. On recent hardware that is Metal compatible, it really moves along, feels and responds very 'snappy'. If you are in a business environment or depend on your Mac for lively-hood, I would still recommend waiting on updating till like maybe version 10.14.2 or something. For personal use, as long as you backup regularly and don't have apps you depend on that need to be updated to run on Mojave, feel free to jump in.
Peace.

I've been using Macs since 1990 when I got a Mac Plus and this is the worst update experience ever. I've tried installing it on two different computers - a 2012 MBP and a 2015 iMac. In both cases it has sort of installed, but has destroyed internet connectivity. Wi-fi in the menu bar reads "no hardware detected" and ethernet doesn't work either. It's possible to log in, but it takes ages with a spinning beachball after I enter each character in my password. I spent a couple of hours dealing with 4 people at different levels of Apple support and they concluded I should restore from my backup. My problem is that Carbon Copy Cloner says that the iMac hard drive is unwriteable and Time Machine doesn't show the iMac Drive at all, offering only to restore to the CCC partition on the external drive.

Far superior to High Sierra. Everything running smoothly for the past week. Couldn't be happier, and it's been a while since I've had that feeling. Seems like a lot of 'under the hood' improvements, which the OS has needed badly.

perhaps Apple should reconsider that one year span. El Capitan, Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave... subtle font and interface changes, revolutionary dark mode and other minor stuff doesn't make a brand new OS. I'm sure we the old Mac users won't be mad, so Apple could focus on selling eye candy stuff and more new iPhones to more new customers.

I wish I could review this, but I have an ancient 2011 imac that can't run it.

It will run the latest Windows or Linux OSes but is the end of the line for MacOS.

It just seems with their hundreds of billions, they could afford to make a version to support slightly older machines.

I won’t grade it. I’m just amazed to read on many websites that Dark Mode puts less strain on the eyes, there are many studies over the past few decades that show the opposite, and I don’t need studies to feel it for myself. I read a nice quote along these lines: “light on dark themes are the stilettos of design.. they can look good but..” The green on dark of the early computer world was ditched for a reason. Also when you work, you’ll always have white if you do graphic work, page layout etc.. so the contrast between some elements being reversed and not your main window/canvas etc.. puts even more strain. Appears like apple ran out of ideas and is pushing more gimmicky stuff instead. And beyond that the Mojave update is really no breakthrough, maybe under the hood.. dunno, seemed like a lot of drumming for little “wow”. https://ux.stackexchange.com/questions/53264/dark-or-white-color-theme-is-better-for-the-eyes

I've used the public beta for several weeks and haven't had any issues. When the beta first came out, I upgraded from High Sierra to Mojave, and things did not work well at all. Then again, I think that High Sierra should have more truthfully been named "Spinning Beach Ball." So I think that some HS issues came along with upgrading from that to Mojave. I eventually backed up my drive and wiped it clean, and did a fresh install. That seemed to work a lot better. Certainly, compared to HS, Mojave is faster, smoother, and more efficient. If Apple was trying to clean up a bunch of bugs, they did a pretty good job of it. I haven't been this satisfied with a new OS in a very long time. As for dark mode, I like it. They did a really nice design job with it. I've read on other sites that people are saying it's merely eye candy, but I've found, over several weeks, that it really has significantly reduced eye strain for me. The one thing people might find problematic - assuming Apple hasn't fixed that in this official release (haven't downloaded it yet) - is that it seems to want to ask you for permission for just about everything. It's excessively security conscious. Even simple apps that you make with Applescript are going to need your official okay. You only have to do it once per app, but I can see where people would find this to be highly annoying. Also, a lot of older tricks - such as terminal commands to allow you to open apps from anywhere - don't seem to work anymore. (I can see the option in System Prefs and even select it, but I still end up having to right-click and open such apps.) I'm sure people will encounter a lot of things that don't work for them, and that's normal. Overall, this is one of the better operating systems from Apple that I've met. (I've used Macs since 1987.)
