If you have a GPU that could run Mojave, probably. Stability, much discussed and so little understood around here, depends on what you are doing. I would be upgrading my work machine but for two issues: Two apps that I use to make a living atre still 32 bit (64 bit upgrades coming soon but they aren't frickin' here!) and I haven't finished testing certain other apps on my Catalina machine. The OS is certainly 'stable' enough. It's the apps that might not be. I had one crash on me last night and I went on the site and found a free upgrade that solved the issue... Stuff like that...General question as I'm still on the fence and yet continue to read all these unfixed glitches.
Does Catalina yet have the stability & compatibility to run on a Mac Pro, 4,1 yet?
Yup, updated the watch too. Nothing is working. Even trying the steps I'm finding online aren't helping either.
You don't get the pop-up that says the changes won't take effect till you quit the app? I do every time.dragging an App into the Full Disk access permissions table doe not always result in it being displayed right away. How hard its to synchronize a sqlite db with a table view?
Well... Be disgusted, then. A lot of that and disappointment always on these boards.Flat out — you purchase a new piece of crap MacBook Pro and count yourself bent over. I’m disgusted
Clueless. I’m a mobile developer. I’ve spent well over $50k the last decade buying the latest and greatest to keep up — you drive 90 minutes one way to drop off an 11 month old computer for service. Tell me big boy, how many Macs have you had die on you? I’ve got documentation if you want to be real.You don't get the pop-up that says the changes won't take effect till you quit the app?

I hope you're not suggesting we all climb into the Windows clown car. Because, if these issues disgust you, going there is a really, really bad idea.
That’s what I thought. Taker you 35 posts and eff the HE double hockey sticks off. 35 posts.Clueless. I’m a mobile developer.

the problem is the camera on the macs, apple use cheap components for the cameras, even older macs have better image quality than the newer models, a few months ago an article came out about this comparisons, mr cook decided to use cheaper materials in order to make more money, even if there is an option available it won't improved anything, not sure but i think those cameras are running at 720p and if they are 1080p they are very low 1080p, but most likely they are 720p, i made a comparison with a friend, his camera against an external Logitech camera, at that time it was the c920, i'm sure Logitech have newer models that might produce even better picture qualityI wish FaceTime had more options to tweak video quality. I have a higher end webcam for my Mac mini, and yet the video resolution it produces in FaceTime is terrible, and there doesn't seem to be any way to adjust it. Streaming from YouTube or using Zoom produces video of far superior quality.
This bricked my 2019 MBP. Not providing power to devices either. Needs an SMC reset but won’t accept it. Mail it in.
Be afraid, be very afraid. Timing couldn’t be more brutal.
Thank you! A reboot of everything did the trick.Strange! Phone/watch/mac on same wifi? Unchecked and rechecked the "Use your Apple Watch to unlock apps and your Mac" in System Settings?
Another tip: Uncheck that box Use your Apple Watch to unlock apps and your Mac" in System Settings. Then restart your watch and restart your iMac and then Check that box again.
I've had a lot of issues with unlocking my 2019 iMac with my Watch (S3). One update broke the functionality and the other update fixed it. But what sometimes helped for a period was to unpair and then reconnect my watch. Takes a while but this often fixed it.
Mine has the T2 chip. No way to bring it back.Mine got bricked, too, but only using the internal keyboard and trackpad - it won't register any input meaning that in order to get the machine to show its login screen, I have to briefly click the power button because that button seems to be differently wired/programmed.
I am using the MBA 11" 2015 maxed out, last one of the godlike Apple netbooks. Thank god I enabled remote control and worked on an experimental and external drive.
Fixing is relatively simple but time-consuming: I had to reinstall the whole OS to the latest version MINUS the supplemental update. I tried it on a clean reinstall USB partition to rule any issues out, but it wouldn't work either.
What a disaster. Do NOT install the supplemental update if you're running a similar model/setup (maybe it's only external drives, but I'm not crazy enough to test it on my main drive, plus external keyboards and trackpads work), I don't know which other models are also affected.
I am certainly going to skip any future Catalina releases.
If you have another Mac available, this will probably work:Mine has the T2 chip. No way to bring it back.

I was just coming back to the page to post exactly that article. Found it on Michael Tsai's blog. It DID work. Good job.If you have another Mac available, this will probably work:
macOS Update brick your Mac? This article will show you how boot to DFU Mode and restore BridgeOS on a T2 MacBook Pro, Air, iMac Pro, Mac Mini & Mac Pro!mrmacintosh.com
That's a good question. When I updated, the computers took what seemed like an inordinate amount of time to fully install and come back up, with plenty of black screen time in there. Consequently, I suspect that either the update just times out somehow, or people are prematurely interrupting the update at a time that leaves the T2 in a spot where it can't recover. Apple's updates really take far too long. At least there is a recovery method, but it's an expensive one if it requires having another modern Mac around.Why the heck the support people didn't offer that up.....
