    Thanks for heads up on new OS @scotjimland, looked at the details on link you provided and decided not to go with the Beta version but to wait for the release in the Autumn, Im in no hurry and don't have a backup Mac (although I do have an Airport time capsule)

    I have been using Mojave for a couple of weeks but just reverted to High Sierra. Most things seemed to work fine but I got a few messages saying certain apps were not compatible with this latest OSX version. Everything still worked till I started doing some serious photo editing in Lightroom. It became very slow and took ages to do simple adjustments. This was one of the apps that said werent compatible.
    Last night I tried to edit some GoPro footage but neither Quick or GoPro Studio would start up.
    That made the decision for me and I reinstalled my cloned copy of HS this morning.
    I also have IOS 12 on my iPhone 7 and iPad Air 2. The only problem I have had so far was trying to attach a photo to a message on my iPhone. I can live with that and at least the apps on IOS12 seem to be being updated quickly.
    I’ll try Mojave again when LR and GoPro update their apps to be compatible.

    Just a quick report..

    Still using it and its had several updates,

    Not keen on 'dark mode' some websites are difficult to read.. so not using that feature now

    no serious problems, only minor glitches that have been reported and resolved.. Mail and Photos freezing occasionally.. but ok now

    IOS 12 has also been great on my ageing iPhone 5s .. absolutely no problems

    Don't bother with Beta releases generally so will wait for the the full release dates.

    Both look interesting though.
