Known bugs in macOS Mojave 10.14.6: an incomplete summary

Howard Oakley for Eclectic Light Company:

The 10.14.6 update leaves many longstanding bugs in Mojave untouched.

It does seem to bring improvements in File Sharing, and has changes in News, Notes and Photos (particularly in iCloud) which may fix other issues. The one bug which has been reported previously in this series which it does appear to address is confusion which could arise in Accent colours.

Sadly, features such as Legacy Software and the resizing of APFS disk images remain completely broken. For the final release of Mojave, that’s deeply disappointing.

MacDailyNews Take: Here’s hoping there’s one more Mojave update, 10.14.7, to clear up there unresolved issues due before we move on to macOS Catalina’s public release!


  1. Freezes on startup immediately after update. It says it’s supposed to fix this problem. I never had this problem until I updated. Now it happens every time, goes into a slow series of self restarts, takes like fifteen minutes to boot up successfully after maybe a dozen tries. I want to remove it but don’t know how. I noticed when the system preferences icon had the red “needs one update” on it, if I went in the through the AppleStore on the update tab, no updates needed. Odd for there to be this inconsistency. If I can get back to Mojave 10.14.5, I will not update again.

  2. I updated a day or two ago and everything is super slow. I can’t even get Chrome to work. (Need to uninstall it today.) Anyone have a link or can point me to a good place for help? iMac (late 2012) 3.4 GHz Intel Core I7 16GB memory — with room to add if that’s the problem??? I didn’t have any other Mojave update problems… they all increased my computing power.

  3. Since bugs are assigned to the Apple developers who wrote the code, and they alone are responsible for fixing it, if a bug goes unfixed for more than one development cycle, the likelihood of it ever getting fixed is pretty low. Apple will leave it broken until by chance it gets swept up in an overhaul of the specific systems involved. That’s why the SMB problems will never get fixed.
