  • When creating a new Pages, Numbers, or Keynote document in a shared folder, you might see the message “Couldn’t connect to iCloud”. (50827963)

    Workaround: Close and reopen the document.

Resolved Issues

  • Your desktop is no longer empty after upgrading to macOS 10.15 if you’re using iCloud Drive to sync Desktop & Documents folders. (50789836)

iPad Apps on Mac

Known Issues

  • MPMediaPickerController might not display the contents of your library. (51785735)
  • macOS and iPad Apps on Mac are currently view-only clients of PencilKit. (51146823)
  • In order to show a share sheet from a toolbar item using the UIActivityViewController, create the NSToolbarItem using the init(itemIdentifier:)initializer and pass it a UIBarButtonItem configured as a UIBarButtonItem.SystemItem.action. There is no need to set the barButtonItem property. (47292316)
  • Currently, you’re unable to import AppKit and UIKit modules in the same compilation unit. If you want to import AppKit headers into an iPad App on Mac, you can import the individual AppKit header in Objective-C, or you can create a bridging header to import the individual AppKit header for Swift. (48094910)
  • The UIScreen class’s isCaptured API isn’t currently supported. (48360589)
  • When donating interactions using the INInteraction class on macOS, the completion handler is invoked with an error which can be safely ignored. (48371526)
  • The current property on UIDevice and the OS Product Name is currently returned as iOS rather than macOS, which can affect diagnostic logs generated by your system. (49792004)
  • Event handling in extension contexts may produce unexpected results, including failure to deliver trackpad pinch and zoom gestures. (50145462)
  • When sending Mail attachments via MessageUI, each attachment might appear as two icons when viewed by the recipient. (50369995)
  • Controls drawn with accent color incorrectly maintain their active color when the window is inactive. There is no need to work around this in your app. (50563638)
  • The UIKit module currently doesn’t import the newly added NSToolbar and NSTouchBarheaders, NSToolbar+UIKitAdditions.h and NSTouchBar+UIKitAdditions.h. You can import these headers directly in Objective-C, or you can create a bridging header to import them for Swift. Be sure to import Foundation before importing these headers. (50704322)
  • When your iPad App on Mac is launched directly into the background, it experiences all the state transitions of a regular app launch — such as application(_:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:) and applicationDidBecomeActive(_:) — followed by state transitions to return to background state from there — applicationWillResignActive(_:) and applicationDidEnterBackground(_:). This will soon be updated to match iOS, where your app will receive only applicationDidFinishLaunching(_:), and only if it wasn’t already running. (50742219)
  • For iPad Apps on Mac to save to Photos Library, explicitly linking the Photos framework is required. (50781430)
  • Opening a CloudKit share URL might not launch an iPad App on Mac that’s present on the system. Additionally, the system might not take the user to the appropriate App Store page to download an app which isn’t present on the system. (50877241)
  • Action and share extensions might exhibit visual anomalies. (51005363)
  • The productsRequest(_:didReceive:) method from StoreKit currently returns with didFailWithError and products aren’t loaded. (51028870)
  • All assets at 3x scale factor are currently ignored when compiling the asset catalog for iPad Apps on Mac. Because the search begins with the universal asset, assets for a specific memory or graphics class won’t be found. For example, if you provide an image and only give a 6GB and Metal 5v1 asset, it won’t be found at runtime. It’s recommended that you provide all images as vectors to allow generation of the correct scale factors, or at minimum provide 2x versions of the assets. If you’re classifying resources based on memory and graphics families then you should provide “Any Memory” and “Any Graphics”. (51033745)
  • CallKit CXAction instances might return an error. (51074735)
  • MTKView objects might render incorrectly. This will be resolved in an upcoming beta. (51084042)
  • If your iPad App on Mac is launched directly into the background, a second background launch request launches the app into the foreground, making it visible to the user. If your app uses any of the supported APIs which might result in a background launch, this might cause your app to launch in the foreground without user input. (51287556)
  • In macOS 10.15 beta, the UIGraphicsRenderer class’s default() function returns the nonextended color range renderer format by default. To use-extended color range format for rendering, create an instance using preferred() and pass it to init(bounds:format:). (51303954)
  • When creating a Mac version of your iPad app, Xcode automatically generates a unique Mac bundle identifier. If you have an existing Mac bundle identifier you’d prefer to use, you can do so by using manual signing in Xcode. (51076014)

    Follow these steps to configure your project, AppID, and provisioning profile:

  1. Sign in to Apple Developer, then select Certificates, Identifiers, and Profiles.
  2. In the Identifiers section, select your iOS app identifier to edit.
  3. Check the UIKit for Mac capability to enable it, then click the Configure button.
  4. Choose Use an existing macOS AppID and select the identifier you’d like to use from the popup menu. Click the Save button to finish editing your AppID.
  5. In the Profiles section, click the + button to create a new profile, select ‘macOS App Development’, and click Continue.
  6. Select your iOS AppID from the popup, click Continue, and complete the rest of the profile creation flow. When finished, click the Download button.
  7. In Xcode, select your project to view the Project Editor and select your app’s target. Then select the Build Settings tab.
  8. Set the Derive UIKit for Mac Product Bundle Identifier setting to No.
  9. Expand the Product Bundle Identifier build setting to view its configurations. Next to the Debug configuration, click the + button to add a conditional value.
  10. For the build setting condition, select Any macOS from the popup menu. Edit the value of the conditional build setting to match the macOS bundle identifier you want to use. Repeat this step for all configurations in your project.
  11. In the Signing & Capabilities tab, uncheck Automatically manage signing.
  12. For your macOS app, select Import Profile from the Provisioning Profile popup and then select the profile you downloaded earlier.

Resolved Issues

  • iPad Apps on Mac that use CloudKit receive push notifications properly. (51264475)
  • iPad Apps on Mac use the same default keychain access group as iPad apps. (50779224)
  • Ad-hoc app signing now allows access to the Keychain. Adding Keychain Sharing triggers mandatory signing using a profile, in turn allowing access to the Keychain. (50898387)
  • You can open the Services Preferences pane from the Services > Services Preferences menu item in the app menu. (49780697)
  • When the user quits an iPad App on Mac, the app transitions to UIKit background state and the app’s audio is stopped. AVAudioSession issues a begin interruption notification in response to the app transitioning to UIKit background state. Additionally, if an iPad App on Mac attempts to activate an AVAudioSession, start an AudioQueue, AURemoteIO, or other high-level player object while in UIKIt background state, audio input and output won’t be allowed to start and AVAudioSession won’t be allowed to activate while the app is in UIKIt background state. (51050672)
  • If you use UIDocumentBrowserViewController to create a new document, then cancel, the helper process presenting the document browser doesn’t quit unexpectedly. (50558637)
  • UILabel, UITextField, and UITextView instances with alignment set to center or right in Interface Builder have the proper alignment when designing for or running iPad Apps on Mac. (50062524)
  • A tooltip added to an NSToolbarItem is no longer presented as a blank window. (50957416)
  • You can now pass shared items from a Sharing extension back to the host through its completion handler. (50835062)
  • Resolved an issue where creating an NSToolbarItem with a UIBarButtonItem.SystemItem of type compose, reply, search, or camera made apps behave unexpectedly. (51253315)
  • Color asset variants are passed during runtime, so these colors now appear in your iPad App on Mac. (51113192)
  • Password AutoFill appears correctly in iPad Apps on Mac. (50992371)
  • SFSafariViewController opens the URL from initialization when presented, then dismisses itself. (51267323)

iWork

Known Issues

  • Attempting to open iWork documents in Finder will unexpectedly create a .cpgz file if the corresponding iWork app isn’t installed. (40693892)

    Workaround: Install the corresponding app from the App Store before opening the document.

Game Controllers

Resolved Issues

  • HID reports from DualShock 4 game controllers using Bluetooth are no longer reported differently by lower level frameworks, such as IOKit, in comparison to macOS Mojave 10.14. (51163262)

  • If your Mac contains both macOS Mojave 10.14 and macOS 10.15 volumes, you might experience issues searching in Mail. (46611310)

    Workaround: While running macOS Mojave 10.14, open Terminal and execute the following command:

    Reboot into macOS 10.15, open Terminal and execute the following command:

    Reboot into macOS Mojave 10.14, open Terminal and execute the following command:

    Depending on the size of your Mail database, it might many hours to reindex all content.

Music

Known Issues

  • You might be unable to log into the store unless you’re logging in from the country in which you’re currently located. (51105585)
  • Navigating using the back button might produce unexpected results. (51248128)
  • Music might take a long time to launch for some users. (51207753)
  • You might be unable to scroll content on shelves. (51248128)
  • Artwork changes might not immediately appear; playlists will be added in an upcoming beta. (51201715)
  • Music might not remember the previously selected tab when it’s relaunched. (50922604)

Resolved Issues

  • Connecting to another computer using Home Sharing shows the remote library as expected. (50921136)
  • Attempting to delete movies, TV shows, and music videos from Manage Storage settings works as expected. (51001458)
  • The visualizer appears as expected. (49952376)

Networking

New Features

  • All NSURLSessionTasks with a GET HTTP method which contain a body will now produce the error NSURLErrorDataLengthExceedsMaximum. (46025234)

Known Issues

  • An active Network Extension content filter configuration might interrupt the boot process indefinitely following a kernel panic. (50965627)

    Workaround: Boot into macOS Recovery, launch Terminal, and execute the following command:

  • NetBoot is unavailable when a Network Extension content filter configuration is enabled. (50872052)
  • The NWEthernetChannel API doesn’t currently support VLAN interfaces. NEPacketTunnelProvider will see both tagged and untagged frames arriving on physical interfaces. Depending on the Ethernet driver, VLAN tags might be processed by hardware and thus stripped off the Ethernet frames thus NEPacketTunnelProvider won’t see the VLAN tag. (51275655)

Resolved Issues

  • The driver for Ethernet Control Model (ECM) USB-C to Ethernet adapters is now enabled in Virtual Machine instances of macOS 10.15. (50968842)
  • Enabling a Network Extension content filter using NEFilterManager starts the content filter. (50603957)
  • The DNS Proxy, Packet Tunnel, and App Proxy network extension types work as System Extensions. (51186839)
  • Installing a content filter configuration when the corresponding content filter system extension is inactive doesn’t interrupt all network traffic on your Mac. (51033902)

Deprecations

  • Support for FTP and File URL schemes for Proxy Automatic Configuration (PAC) is removed. HTTP and HTTPS are the only supported URL schemes for PAC. This affects all PAC configurations including but not limited to configurations set using Settings, System Preferences, profiles, URLSession APIs such as connectionProxyDictionary, and CFNetworkExecuteProxyAutoConfigurationURL(_:_:_:_:). (28578280)
  • SPDY support is removed from the URLSession and NSURLConnection APIs. Servers should use HTTP 2 or HTTP 1.1. (43391641)
  • The Network Kernel Extension API is now deprecated. (49284108)
  • NetBIOS is disabled in macOS 10.15 to speed up mounting, browsing, and connecting to SMB shares. Some older printers and file servers may require NetBIOS to connect. (51119111)

    To enable NetBIOS, you can create or edit the /etc/nsmb.conf file. If your system doesn’t already have an /etc/nsmb.conf file, use the following Terminal commands while logged in as an Administrator:

    To disable NetBIOS, you can safely delete the /etc/nsmb.conf file.

Photos

New Features

  • To improve the Photos upgrade experience, Photos is testing database upgrades using a clone of the Photo Library. This clone doesn’t include the content of each photo, but does include faces metadata and a thumbnail image of each person in your library. It also contains metadata such as the asset name and the geographic location of the photo. It is created at ~/Pictures/macOS 10.15 Pre-Upgrade Backup, and you can manually remove this backup at any time. The clone will be removed automatically before the final release of macOS 10.15. (51033690)

  • Browse and Top Charts might not display content from the expected country. (51681853)
  • Deleting podcasts using About This Mac > Storage > Manage doesn’t update what’s shown in the Podcasts app until it’s relaunched. (50354510)
  • Setting “Automatically Download Episodes” to “Never” might not take effect. (50960777)
  • Writing a review isn’t currently supported. (46173722)
  • Manually checking for feed updates when Option-clicking the Podcasts app in the dock isn’t currently available. (50958585)

    Workaround: Quit and relaunch the app.

  • Certain UI elements might appear unaligned on non-Retina displays. (51138730)
  • The first time Podcasts is launched, a migration is triggered even if there is no content to migrate. (51145044)
  • If Podcasts is placed in Full Screen mode, some UI elements might be obscured by the toolbar. (47125303)

Resolved Issues

  • User interface elements are no longer obscured by the toolbar if you place Podcasts in Full Screen mode. (47125303)

Quartz Composer

Deprecations

  • Starting in macOS 10.15, the Quartz Composer framework is deprecated and remains present for compatibility purposes. Transition to frameworks such as Core Image, SceneKit, or Metal. (50911608)

Screen Sharing

Known Issues

  • You can now consistently select apps in the Always Allowed pane. (51120837)

Script Editor

Resolved Issues

  • Script Editor doesn’t quit unexpectedly when saving or executing scripts. (50470730)

Scripting Language Runtimes

Deprecations

  • Scripting language runtimes such as Python, Ruby, and Perl are included in macOS for compatibility with legacy software. Future versions of macOS won’t include scripting language runtimes by default, and might require you to install additional packages. If your software depends on scripting languages, it’s recommended that you bundle the runtime within the app. (49764202)
  • Use of Python 2.7 isn’t recommended as this version is included in macOS for compatibility with legacy software. Future versions of macOS won’t include Python 2.7. Instead, it’s recommended that you run python3 from within Terminal. (51097165)

Sign In with Apple

Resolved Issues

Siri

  • Return types for View modifier methods include complex generic types. In a future release, these methods will return simpler types. (46140669)
  • The tabItemLabel(_:) modifier doesn’t accept @ViewBuilder closures.

    Workaround: Wrap the views you pass to the modifier in a VStack:

  • Image instances don’t use resizing information configured in asset catalogs. Configure the size of an image using the resizable(capInsets:resizingMode:) modifier instead. (49114577)
  • A ScrollView doesn’t always size itself as expected for its content. (49204262)

    Workaround: Size the view that’s inside the ScrollView by applying the frame(width:height:alignment:) modifier to the inner view. (49204262)

Resolved Issues

  • Tabs in TabbedView instances appear as expected when you use them with a NavigationView. (49958869)
  • The possible values that you can select from a Picker can now be accessed from UI automation. (50679414)
