    I'm the owner of a 2015 MacBook Pro and on Mojave Beta 2. The most things work well but Siri has some problems. After activating with its symbol the windows appears but nothing happens. Siri don't want to hear me. By clicking the "?" I can see the possible keywords and so on but after this - nothing.
    Any idea? On my iMac mid 2015 this works well... Siri.jpeg

    For the wallpaper in Dark Mode, there is a workaround that you can do to temporarily get the same effect as if you had the real dynamic wallpaper.

    Go check this link:

    I know it was intended for PowerPC, but you can use this method to recreate the dynamic effect of the original dynamic wallpaper.

    This is a good alternative while we are waiting for Apple to fix it.:):D

    Basically, it is a AppleScript that check the time every 15 minutes and applies one of the 16 pictures extracted from the original dynamic wallpaper. This is convert into an app so you can let it run all day long without wondering of launching it every hour manually.

    Mac mini 2012 ,

    The machine seems to be running very very hot and the fan isn’t speeding up under load almost like the temp control to fan isn’t working.

    I installed a 3rd party fan control and set to CPU diode and all cool again.

    One thing I don't get that; I report about iTunes/Safari slanted video problem/bug four times in feedback report in website and feedback assistant... and they didn't fix it!! It started all way back to High Sierra 13.4 to current beta... it just are making me frustrated and crazy about it. At least the workaround is still working, but still I prefer default to scaled resolution...

    One thing that has started to bother me about my Mac.. The OS has just started to feel heavier.. Especially the messaging application. Im on a maxed out 2016 MacBook Pro for the record.. For instance.. Windows 10 running in parallels feels like it runs better than OSX... Hoping that Mojave fixes it

    Are you talking about the bug that doesn't let you change the wallpaper? Just updated my MB and I cannot change my wallpaper. The settings pane freezes. I already submitted feedback to Apple...

    Is this fixed in Mojave?
    When receiving a FaceTime Video, Audio or Phone Call, the FaceTime notification does not display the Caller’s Contact picture, instead it shows a generic placeholder (until you have accepted the call).

    Even after doing a clean install of Mojave, my Mac will often logout, go to the Apple logo with the loading screen at like 40% for half a second and then go to the login screen. It happens often after swiping up to use Mission Control or any animations.

    SuperDuper not working. When I try to do a disc image backup with it in Mojave beta, the app promptly crashes.

    I had to reinstall due to hard drive issues and so had a completely clean install of Mojave. Now I cannot log into iCloud or connect to the office VPN.

    Probably going to go back to High Sierra for now. Everything is in the cloud, so reinstall is painless.

    Sorry just joined the public beta so this may have been answered, but when you set the Dynamic wallpaper is it *only* the wallpaper? I’m trying to see if it’s supposed to turn on Dark Mode as well when it changes to the Night theme? Or is it only a static Light/Dark mode with no way to shift between the two automatically?

    Using the dark theme with the gray accent color has some very low contrast UI elements.
    The finder sidebar active icon is completely invisible at times. With any other accent color, the finder sidebar icons are white and show up fine on any (blurred) background. dark contrast.png

    Also did you notice that if you choose an accent color and then choose gray, the accent color actually get's desaturated. For example - if you choose Purple and then click on gray, the highlight color doesn't change(it should change) and the accent color gets desaturated to light violet. I like the violet :p But icons in sidebar get's very low contrast.

    Also in dark mode, the highlight color for file name text selection, is of very low contrast.

    I hope somebody fixes these. I'l send a report.

    Installed the beta on an external ssd drive, newset iMac 27", all i get is a spinnig ball and everything freezes. Tried the dark mode on but couldn't even get a Finder to work. Formatted the drive back and went back to High Sierra. Will wait for an updated build later I guess

    I'm testing public beta myself and my experience is that the wallpaper is the only one changes between dark and light based on the timezone I'm at.
