Mojave macOS 10.14 review of initial problems

Reports of WiFi, Battery, Time Machine and Upgrade issues

You might be wondering should I upgrade to Mac OS Mojave? This will lead you to look at reviews and wonder about any initial problems others might be experiencing, which as always you’ll almost certainly hear about teething issues.

The Dynamic Desktop with new time-shifting desktops sounds like a nice feature, along with all the other new features, so now some weeks have passed you might want to update. Below we take a quick review of the macOS 10.14 Mojave problems reported so far and how to fix some of them

macOS Mojave battery problems – The first place to start will be heading to Finder and opening up Applications, then head to Utilities > Activity Monitor > Energy. This allows you to see the cause of battery drain and you might discover it’s a 3rd party app. Once discovered, look for updates to programs or uninstall those causing issues. Also, like with iPad and iPhone, consider turning off location services and stopping animations and effects in macOS Mojave, as this can certainly help increase battery life.

WiFi not working in macOS 10.14 Mojave – This is a common complaint that can have many causes including your own networking hub, one tip is to start the Mac in safe mode and see if it then allows you to connect. This helps isolate any problems, for example if WiFi now works then it would likely mean there’s an issue with an extension or app. Keep checking for Apple updates, also updates to drivers and apps.

Time Machine and Upgrade issues – We have heard about a few people having Time Machine issues without any easy fix, also upgrade issues when installing macOS 10.14 Mojave. If you can relate to this or any other issues, let us know in the comments.
