“you also get strong passwords automatically created and tracked by Safari, and available on your iPhone and iPad too”
…already a feature with previous MacOS back to El Capitan.

my Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 didn’t work with Mojave – the upgrade charges for features I don’t need.

“Don’t update if you’re worried about Mojave problems” XD
This page is mess

That’s because pages like this update the article “date” to fool people into thinking it’s up to date. A common problem with such sites

After installing Mojave (against my better judgement, but at Apple Support’s insistence for debugging iTunes metadata issues) my MacBook Pro now runs slower, Mail frequently fails to connect to my email server, Time Machine no longer works (seriously…), network drives no longer connect automatically nor via server name (must be connected manually via IP address, and even then they sometimes disconnect spontaneously), the App Store remodel is horrible, screenshots are now slower with stupid features that true screenshots do not need, Dock real-estate is reduced with a new recently-used apps section (thank goodness that can be switched off), and brilliantly there is NO WAY to revert back to an earlier OS. Time Machine backup, you say? Nope – Time Machine isn’t working for me since the “downgrade” to Mojave. Apple needs to STOP changing things simply for the sake of changing things. If it ain’t broke, don’t “fix” it. I now need to erase my hard drive in order to have a “Genius” install an older OS on my computer. Yep, because after two weeks of daily Apple Support conversations with no less than 9 different “senior” support advisors there is absolutely no progress towards resolving all the glitches Mojave has introduced. Apple is becoming less desirable to me each year. It seems more and more that they are getting too careless and flakey with their software design. (What’s next, malware susceptibility like Windows?) Mojave is the pinnacle of their retarded ideas of what people desire, as judging from my own experience and the quantity of people online wanting to revert back to anything earlier than Mojave. I think it’s safe to say that Mojave SUCKS.

I thank all of you for airing your issues with Mojave. I was offered the upgrade but chose to wait and see what issues might come to light and way too many have. I only bought this new iMac barely 2 years ago and I am happy with the software. I learned a valuable lesson with that Vintage Mac because I was downloading all the new software to my vintage iMac which I purchased in 2010 and the software downloaded stressed my vintage mac so much that I noticed it was heating up and so I shut it down and went to an independent Apple dealer to have the problem diagnosed. The tech who replaced the fan told me that my vintage Mac was not capable of handling all those upgrades despite the Apple techs assurances that it could and I was lucky that I rested my arm along the top of the iMac to shut the window next to it and realized it was as hot as hell. He said that what saved it was the cool air coming in the window and my timely shutdown or it would have overheated and I would have a dead vintage iMac to use as a very large paperweight. Having, in the past, purchased a number of different hardware products which came with Microsoft’s latest Windows already installed and having to buy upgrades to fix the problems that came with the “new” Window software products I was truly sick of all the issues that came with each upgrade in Windows. If you can’t put out a software package that has no bugs than you are just doing it for the Benjamins and the plan all along is to milk the customer dry to get all of the “fixes” required. I was assured that Apple would never follow Microsoft’s practice. I was happy for 10 years until I was told I needed these upgrades or I wouldn’t be able to connect to newer software. I figure 10 years is a good run for any hardware. I’ve only averaged 3 with various computers before the units started having issues that weren’t related to the software. Now Apple is following Microsoft’s lead and is creating upgrades that have lots of issues and no apparent fixes, but let’s wait and see. I would bet they will come out with a fix and we will be required to purchase it. If Steve Jobs were still alive this kind of crap would not be happening. Now it is the stockholders who are calling the shots, and we’re going to foot the bill. The tech who repaired my Vintage iMac told me to refuse all upgrades and I could continue to use it for streaming Netflix, until silverlight no longer becomes compatible with the older software, and even for using Elgato’s eyetv should I decide to go back to cable television. He joked with me and said, repeat after me “just say no” whenever they want you to upgrade your vintage Mac and you won’t have any problems. It’s a 27 in screen iMac and I’ve been using it in my bedroom as a TV. I can’t complain, the cost to repair my vintage mac was just under $100 and I can still use it. I will never make that mistake with this one. I know Mac users, you are all honest people and you just got screwed and I’m benefiting from that. We should all get together and demand that they fix all the issues that they created and we will not put up with Microsoft’s business footprint. Thank you for saving me a lot of pain and anxiety, I am not a healthy person and stress just makes my health issues worse.

Also there’s no facebook link in photos anymore and the 3d option in maps is gone. no globe.
05/20/2019 at 2:15 am
It’s updates like this (and many in the past) that Apple is no longer exciting or appealing!
It’s more work trying to fix things after an Apple update, not even printers work anymore! What a nightmare :(
05/26/2019 at 11:54 pm
I tried to update my MacBook Pro from 2013. Now it is locked in the update proces and can’t complete the update. It shuts down again and again. So my advice is – don’t update now..check the internet if your Macbook model needs the update and can do it without problems….
05/27/2019 at 2:29 am
I also think you should install macOS 10.14.5. It will fit your device
06/19/2019 at 8:34 am
This is a catch 22. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. I upgraded a few months after Mojave came out and my 27″ iMac retina 5K ended up in the shop for a freaking week. I had customers screaming “when will you up and running?”
That’s the damned if you do.
The damned if you don’t is future compatibility issues down the road with everything.

My Macbook Pro has been incredibly slow since “downgrading” to Mojave. I’ve eliminated every possible thing I can locate and I still sit waiting for just about every function. I’ll be reverting to High Sierra very soon.
07/19/2019 at 1:29 pm
A question I would like answered, if “upgrading” from High Sierra (10.13.6), how much hardware will I lose? The last upgrade cost me a scanner and a Wacom tablet. What hardware would this upgrade cost me?
07/26/2019 at 7:53 am
I’m not doing it. All my apps and devices work well on my iMac as is under High Sierra 10.13.6. Mojave has been having earthquakes… I don’t need one on my desktop.
07/31/2019 at 6:29 am
Same issue Mojave is causing problems and Apple should know better. You are letting your loyalty decrease and getting the reputation of being just one of those typical software and hardware groups. I have had Macs for years and I mean years! Could only praise their work, now I am not so sure. I might have to start looking for another computer company to work with if this keeps going on. I love my Sierra, the software has not let me down. Putting things in your latest fixes that does not allow the people that invested in your newest software, found it doesn’t work like the previous edition, can’t revert back without cost or newer machine, is NOT THE APPLE WAY at least it wasn’t. Listen to your customers! No one seems to get that any more when running a business!

Sorry to read these comments but welcome to my Windows world for the past 20 years so I can empathise, and thank you for your comments because my wife has a MacBook Air and loves it. I am researching the upgrade for her and these comments bring back a flood of Win XP, Win 7 and now Win 10 tears fixes on fixes and ‘undesirable enhancements’ so I won’t be recommending an upgrade until Apple have their act together.
Perhaps Apple’s issues here are similar to Microsofts – have they handed software development and customer release over to the marketing and programming departments? Sorry to hear so many sad stories.
07/31/2019 at 12:34 pm
I installed it last night and today my computer is useless. Not a happy camper.

I upgraded my 2015 MacBook Pro yesterday to Mojave. I also upgraded my 20 MacBook 12 in. The MacBook upgrade appears (so far) to run okay. On the MacBook Pro, I could not get email to work and the internet kept freezing up requiring reboot. I spent the entire day trying to get it to work, based on information on the internet. Today I restored the clone of High Sierra to the MacBook Pro. I have no idea why one system seems to work (crossing fingers) and the other one doesn’t. Also, the MacBook said it needed a Mojave upgrade, but the MacBook Pro didn’t say that. Very frustrated and won’t be upgrading the MacBook Pro to Mojave any time soon
08/15/2019 at 10:57 pm
I have Mojave 10.14.5 on my mac and now my email won’t send. Was on the phone with my ISP, but alas no joy
09/16/2019 at 3:23 am
I’m dreading the upgrade to Catalina as I know I’ll lose one app that I use a lot and have to use the web based version which means a monthly drain on my pocket and I worry I’ll lose my 2011 MS Office too.
09/19/2019 at 9:05 pm
Can I skip OS Mojave and wait for the OS Catalina update instead?
