I have been reading both pros and cons about Ventura… and I know some (all?) of the early issues may have been resolved by now.
My question is quite simple.
How much pain am I going to suffer if I upgrade?
I really only have one incentive at the moment…
I have upgraded my iPad/iPhone to iOS 16.4, and am running Xcode 14.2
however, I cannot compile and install (Swift) using that combination, it turns out that iOS16.4 requires that Xcode use version 14.3 and Xcode14.3 requires Ventura.
I have held off on Ventura and had my family also hold off … is it at least safe for plain old users and is there any upside for them?
I don’t have a need for the latest XCode at the moment since with this new gig all my JetBrians Ryder personal projects have gone dormant for lack of time. So it’s really just a question of, what sort of buggery will we encounter as ordinary mortal users, vs what wondrous new functionality is there that we Just Can’t Live Without / Didn’t Know we Needed?
I know we’ve experienced some VPN/security software issues with the latest version of Ventura (prior versions were okay). Otherwise, I’ve been using it on my M1 MBP with no issues. I don’t do heavy development of it any more so YMMV.
