So Apple release the final version of macOS Mojave aka. 10.14. Before you start your update, you should check, if your important tools are 64bit compatible.
This version of macOS will annoy you with warnings about your apps being 32bit each time you start them. While you will still be able to execute 32bit apps in Mojave, I used the opportunity to get rid of a few 32bit apps.
How do you check, which apps are still 32bit? You can verify this from the system information app. Click on your Apple symbol in the menu line and select “About this Mac”. Click on “System Report”. Check now Software/Applications. You can filter the list by “64-bit (Intel)”. Each app marked with “No” should produce the popup.
In my case I had these apps replaced by either updates or different tools:
macOS Mojave was released to the public on Monday. As I’m still suffering under terrible problems with macOS High Sierra Updates, I’ve decided to give my Mac a chance and to download Mojave.
I’ve started the download from the Mac App Store and the download speed was really slow. I’m using a 50MBit VDSL connection provided by the Deutsche Telekom. All other Downloads are fast and saturate the connection at about 5,5MB/s.
The Download from the Mac App Store is terribly slow at around 200kB/s. After searching for problems with Deutsche Telekom and slow App Store speeds, I’ve stumbled over this page.
The solution to my slow download rates seem to be the used DNS server. Even if you use the DNS from Quad9 or the one from Google, you will have slow downloads.
The recommended IPv4 DNS server are quite fast. I’ve setup a new Network Profile with these DNS server and I have now the full download speed again.
You can switch your network profile afterwards to your local DNS server.
