Transition to MacOS 10.15 Catalina

  • After installation, the computer needed to restart. This was expected, but it took 15 minutes before the system tried to restart, leading to applications seemingly shutting down unexpectedly.
  • I needed to run xcode-select --install to get your command line tools up to date.
  • I needed to give Zoom & Teams new permissions to share my screen. Giving an application the new permission requires a restart, which is a bit of a pain mid-meeting. You trigger the permission request when attempting to share your screen, so it’s easy to forget to give a screen-sharing application permission until you’re trying to share your screen.
  • Occasionally, after sleeping the system, my USB peripherals become slower than usual. A restart has fixed this when it’s occurred.
