[MacOS Sequoia - Beta 2] Possessed audio after connecting AirPods Max

Every song I play is slowed and cuts through every few seconds. Not just music but also YouTube videos and just about anything that plays audio. After a few minutes of handing off from my phone and Mac it eventually resolved itself.

It didn’t have this problem when I was using the computer speakers, and it didn’t have the issue when I was playing audio on my phone when my AirPods were connected.

Any Sequoia UI/UX changes?

However major or minor!

Wishlist:

  • easier to access drop-down options in notifications;
  • larger Memoji on Lock Screen;
  • more keyboard navigation accessibility in Maps and widget gallery;
  • navigating Control Center without releasing the trackpad;
  • adding (restoring) a now playing widget;
  • making now playing and Time Machine appear when in use

Resizing iPhone Mirroring Window

Is there anyway to resize the iPhone Mirroring Window to a custom size?

Currently my only workaround is changing my display resolution back to the default in System Settings > Displays so that the phone is easier on the eyes, but then converting it back to "More Space" when im done. Usually, on the "More Space" resolution I make text sizes bigger for apps where the text size is too small. But naturally, I cant do this for the iPhone, as making the text bigger on a window I cant control the size of ruins the whole look. Plus, I'd rather not change my phone settings to enjoy it on my Mac.

DB2: Permanently allow application to continue monitoring my screen/audio?

Hi - I use DisplayLink Manager with external displays on my M3 Pro MBP. Been using it for years, across multiple versions and several MacBooks, never had an issue.

DB2 introduced some new security features that prompt me to continue allowing the DisplayLink Manager app to continue "recording" my screen. Without this enabled, external monitors don't work, and I have to force quit the app -> reopen it. Kinda a pain.

I went through settings but don't see any way to permanently allow-list displaylink manager to do what it needs to. And yes, the app has all necessary permissions in Privacy & Security. It's just that every 24 hours or so, arbitrarily, the OS stops giving those permissions I granted, and forces me to click a pop-up to "continue allowing access".

Any ideas?

Anyone from outside the EU mind helping me set up an iCloud account?

I've been struggling for days to set up an iCloud account with the region set to US, to get to try out iPhone Mirroring. Account creation seems locked to me no matter where and how I try, VPN or not. Anyone got an old throwaway icloud account lying around by any chance? Or any idea how to work around this?

Thanks in advance!

macOS Sequoia - Window Tiling Speed

Hi, is there a way to speed up the window tiling animation when dragging a window to the left/right/corner? Just like you can make changes to a .plist to speed up the Dock open/close animation, I want to do the same with window tiling. I find waiting half a second way too long and holding Option feels inconvenient.

Is iPhone mirroring better for battery life?

Taking into account that the screen on the actual phone is turned off, it would make sense if the battery lasts longer.
Im about to start trying it myself, but I was just curious if someone has already noticed a difference if any.

M1 Pro 14" - Beta 2, no display scaling options

Hi all. A weird bug that seems to have come out of nowhere.

https://preview.redd.it/5dram1i6ny8d1.png?width=1436&format=png&auto=webp&s=e6792e618e3dc8cfa32346df243924ea0b8f01ee

When not connected to an external display, my default resolution is this. When I select the native resolution, there's no option to scale the text. Any ideas?

Does MacOS Beta finally add support for controlling volume when connected to HDMI audio

Currently, if you connect to your monitor's speakers (or speakers out), MacOS refuses to allow you to change the master volume, leaving it at max volume all the time. You have to use flaky add-ons to fix that.

Did they finally fix that?

FaceTime background

When on a call, there is a green camera icon active in the menu bar. Clicking it I get a number of colour gradients and I can add my backgrounds on the third panel.

On the second panel, there is a single image of mountains landscape. How do I add more images there?

Also, can I edit the backgrounds while "offline", not on the call?

Beta 2 always locking my screen when I am away from it?

Anyone else having this- the screen is ALWAYS locked when I am away from it, and I am unable to turn this off?

The MacBook locks every time the screen saver comes on/ screen goes off/ lid shuts. As the MacBook is only used at home, I always turn this feature off, but since downloading beat 2, I am unable to. I have been in to system settings- lock screen, changed the ‘require password after screen saver begins or display is turned off’ to ‘never’, entered my password in the Lock Screen box, clicked Turn off Lock Screen again, and then ‘keep using Keychain’- but the ‘require password after screen saver begins or display is turned off’ goes back to immediately. This happens every time, and I can not get this turned off- even after reboot.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Can't log in to iCloud in a VM under macOS 15 Sequoia

With macOS 15 Sequoia, Apple has added support for logging into iCloud in VMs:https://developer.apple.com/documentation/virtualization/using_icloud_with_macos_virtual_machines

This was not yet possible in Beta 1, but according to the release notes, it should now be possible with Beta 2: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/macos-release-notes/macos-15-release-notes#Virtualization

Unfortunately, this does not work for me either in UTM or in Parallels.

The host Mac (MacBook Pro M1 Pro) and the VM are both on macOS 15 Sequoia Beta 2 and the VM was freshly installed from the image.

Has anyone already got this to work?

iPhone mirroring in DB2 via USB cable

Hi,

Does anybody knows/tested if the iPhone mirroring work connected via cable instead of WiFi?

It would be useful to decrease latency for games and while mirroring Mac Screen to Vision Pro (since iPhone Mirroring + Mac Screen doesn't work at the same time due to WiFi bandwidth).

iPhone Apps listed in system information

Hi

I just discovered that my iPhone Apps are somehow cached on my PC as a .app (which doesn't open though).

Anyone knows why? Is this sequoia only due to screen mirroring?

For example "Health" ;

  Version: 1.0

MacOS Sequoia Problems with Accessibility Permissions?

Every time I restart my computer, I am bombarded with permissions requests the system with every app that requires permissions...it's pretty annoying. When this happens, I'm promoted with "Open System Settings (or preferences, I forgot)" or "Continue to Allow." The problem is, when I open system settings, I usually see that the given app already has permission to perform whatever task is at hand, but nonetheless, I'm prompted either way.

This has been a problem in both Developer Beta 1 AND Developer Beta 2.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it a known issue? Any advice would be appreciated!
