    Safari, App Store, Music, etc. won't connect to the internet, while third-party apps, such as Chrome will, and work perfectly. Anyone else had this problem? If so; how did you rectify it?

    Test in a new user. Does it still happen there? If so: reinstall macOS via recovery, as it sounds like a system file is broken.

    If not: something in your user account is causing the issue and it's likely going to take some more digging to find.

    Thanks, I tried in a new user, and the problem still remains.
    Btw, this problem only started occurring after downloading the beta

    Fair. It could be a beta problem. But given that it only occurs in the built in apps indicates something went wrong during the install, possibly corrupting some system file. Particularly since it's occurring in multiple users. I would recommend a reinstall.

    I tried a reinstall last night, unfortunately, no luck. I also made a bootable usb drive with the installer on it, but same problem again.

    I tried in Safe Boot this morning, didn't work, but I took it to the Genius Bar, and it worked on their network.
    Now that I am home, it's working on my home network as well. He didn't change anything...

    Powering off your Mac for 10+ minutes often has miraculous results.
