    What happened at Apple WWDC 18? macOS Mojave unveiled

    We were all excited for Apple WWDC 2018 for some updates on mac OS, and also expecting some hardware announcements along to get improved support for latest CPU and GPU hardware. Unfortunately there were no hardware announcements¬†ūüėü, but we got a nice update from macOS¬†in the name of¬†Mojave (10.14)¬†ūüėĬ†(even though its expected every year, but this year they introduced many new user oriented features which are really useful in our day to day activities). It is coming this fall!

    • @kushwavez¬†agree to a point. Never used windows much on this system. I seem to recall when the system was first bought through I was getting a little bit not load more battery life. But then NVidia dGPU was not disabled.¬† i was however getting 3+ hours battery life with Ubuntu 18.04 though. Again with NV disabled. As¬†you say could just be the OS but I suspect there is some thing draining since I‚Äôll get jump decreases when doing things like rebooting.¬† another thing I have seen is that the fans can be noisy and then I‚Äôll sleep the system and wake and the fans have quieted¬†¬†down and battery drain seems to have slowed.¬† ¬† @Herv√©¬†I removed the UEFI disabled method last night and ran a CMOS reset to get back to default settings.¬† Clover now shows (under Graphics option) both GPUs a present however unable to boot successfully back in to Mojave.¬† ¬† Kernel panic seems to occur followed by a reboot.¬† ¬† I tried removing boot option: -wegnoegpu¬† ¬† tried adding -nv_disable=1¬† ¬† tried adding checking InjectNvidia using FakeId: 0x12345678¬† ¬† any suggestions on how to proceed?
    • Post your Clover folder for review
    • Am already using Mojave in my laptop. I Tried to update to Catalina, installation completed successfully but graphics acceleration and trackpad is not working. I think am messing up with my EFI. Please help me in this
    • Well, everything looks Ok on that front too.
