    Just downloaded - post any thoughts here! (surprised there wasn't a thread for this already, apologies if I somehow missed it).

    Anyone experiencing this issue btw:
    -My desktop icons are gone on my MacBook Pro. When I go into iCloud Drive I have "Desktop" and it has everything that should be there; however, on "my computer" my desktop is empty and there are no icons actually on my desktop.

    Not a be-all-end-all since the files are still there, in iCloud drive, but just annoying. Hopefully stuff is downloading and will appear?

    Gonna have to sit out for this one, the features to instability ratio isn't looking too good for Catalina.

    I have it installed in my MacBook Pro, but I really haven’t played with it due to my focus being on my iPhone at the time. I work from home today so I’ll definitely play around with it.

    I installed yesterday, the initial install failed and I had to restart my MacBook, but then it installed no problem. Of course I had to wait a bit while everything catalogued again, which caused the spinning beach ball a few times. To be expected. So far though, no real issues using it.

    Update: I’ve been using my MacBook Pro running the new macOS Catalina all day and I think I’ve experienced one crash with regard to the settings. Other than that, it’s been smooth sailing. Well done, Apple...

    Big issue is still my desktop not loading - I think it's some iCloud Drive issue (although thankfully it isn't affecting my iMac (on Mojave) or my iPhone or iPad (both running iOS 13/iPad OS 13).

    The desktop issue has severely messed up the OneDrive app - I'm taking my computer into the Microsoft store tomorrow to see if they can troubleshoot the issue on OneDrive's part or to at least try and wipe the app off of my Mac and re-install [onedrive.com is working perfectly, and I can access my OneDrive files directly from Word/OneNote/Excel, so there are definite workarounds, I just can't risk my OneDrive files disappearing...]

    So far the only thing not working is the "unlock with Apple Watch", tried disable and re-enable, still not working. Touch ID working though.

    Try rebooting your computer. The reason I say that is because the unlock with Apple Watch feature is working flawlessly for me with the new macOS Catalina beta. With that being said, I did not update my Watch to watchOS 6.

    That did it, turns out I hadn't restarted yet since installing Catalina. I also haven't installed WatchOS 6.

    Did you partition the drive or are you running it full?

    I am running it full. I created a boot disk with Catalina on it, and then installed it. In addition, I set everything up from scratch.

    I’m not up too much on the betas so I’m just waiting for the full version to come out in the fall.

    Have you installed the beta profile for it? If so, reboot your Mac and then check for an update.
