What Ventura Problems are Mac Users Facing?

Apple has released the macOS Ventura with a lot of pomp and show. The new macOS version promises to enhance user productivity and experience with massive improvements and features. Some notable Ventura features are:

  1. Undo and schedule emails on the Mail app
  2. Use your iPhone’s camera as a webcam for your Mac using the Continuity Camera feature
  3. Edit passwords that Apple suggests in Safari
  4. Share Safari tab groups with your colleagues and friends
  5. Edit and unsend text messages up to fifteen minutes after you have sent the message
  6. Manage all the open windows on your screen using the latest Stage Manager feature
  7. Thanks to the handoff feature in FaceTime, you can start a call on your Mac and continue the same call on your iPhone.

Do these new features and functionalities excite you? They are meant to! However, before upgrading your system to macOS Ventura, you must find out if your system is compatible with the latest macOS version. Furthermore, you must be aware of the problems you might face with this upgrade.

  • Battery Draining Too Fast

Immediately after the update, you may find the MacBook battery draining fast. This might be because the new OS is setting things up in the background, like reindexing Finder. Once this is done, the battery performance will go back to normal.

Additionally, you can tweak the battery settings by going to System Settings > Battery > enable Low Power Mode.

Besides this, you can ensure that applications and macOS are updated. Typically, developers fix problems causing battery drain with new updates. So, if you quickly update the apps, your issue can be resolved.

Moreover, you can switch to less taxing applications on your system. For instance, switch to Safari if you are a Google Chrome user. Chrome is known to be a resource hog and can drain your system resources, impacting your battery life.

  • Fans Making Noise

Since the OS is setting things up in the background, your device might be working overtime. Therefore, the fans may be working extra hard to keep everything cool. This may be why you can hear the loud noise of the fans.

There’s nothing to worry about, as the fan noises will subside once things get settled in the background. However, if the noise persists, check the vents and clean out dust and debris, ensuring proper ventilation.

  • Cannot Connect to the Wi-Fi Network

Updating to Ventura may create Wi-Fi problems. You may not be able to connect to your usual network, which can be a significant issue if you work from home.

First, restart your Mac and check if the problem is solved. If not, restart your device in Safe mode and see if the Internet connection returns. If it does, the problem is with an application or extension.

Additionally, you can forget the network you typically connect to and try reconnecting to the network by entering the password. You can also restart your router.

  • AirDrop is Not Working

If you face issues with AirDrop after upgrading to Ventura, turn it off and then turn it on again. You can also disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, then re-enable them. This should fix the AirDrop issue.

If the problem persists, adjust the AirDrop’s settings. For example, launch Finder > click Go > AirDrop > click next to the ‘Allow me to be discovered by’ option and select Everyone.

  • iCloud Problems

iCloud is the best solution to store your files and documents in the cloud safely. However, iCloud may encounter problems. For example, it may stop syncing.

When iCloud throws a tantrum, the first solution is to sign out and sign in again. Go to the System Settings app > click your Apple ID > scroll down to find Sign Out. Then, sign back in again from the same menu.

If you have changed your iCloud password, you may have to sign out of the iCloud services and sign back in again. You will encounter problems with these services if you haven’t done this.

  • Apps are Freezing or Not Working

Upgrading to Ventura may cause your apps to misbehave. They may freeze or refuse to quit. The first solution is to go to the App Store and check for updates. The apps must be updated to make them compatible with Ventura. You can also uninstall the apps and reinstall them again to solve the issue.

If apps are refusing to quit, you can force quit them by pressing Option + Command + Escape. You can also right-click the app’s icon in the Dock and press the Option key. This is going to change the Quit menu to Force Quit. Click on this, and the unresponsive app will be forced to close.

Final Thoughts

macOS Ventura is a new update, and you may initially face some issues. But the problems can be fixed quickly, so you can benefit from the new features and improvements added to this OS.
