The new features are actually the ability for Android users to bother you with RCS. Thanks EU, can’t wait to hear what life is like compiling a phone OS
The EU has nothing to do with RCS, it was because of China. They require all 5g-capable phones to have RCS support to be sold in the country.

Get your trolling in order, please.

Why would new features be added to an EOL macOS version. More likely bug fixes and performance improvements. There are always bugs to fix no matter how stable things are running. And macOS 14.5 is extremely stable on my M1 Studio Max.

How can it be EOL when the next one has not come out yet?
The minute the new is announced the old one becomes EOL in my opinion. Except for security, bugs, and performance patches the old one is done.

macOS Sequoia beta 3 where are you?
Agreed this issue with wifi is killing me on Beta 2 for Sequoia. It messes something up with DNS/iCloud Private relay. Ping generally stays up, but DNS drops.
