While macOS Catalina is still in preview mode and even when it’s released, there will be probably some issues, as of now not one but lots of problems with every part of it. These problems are usually with every operating system when they are newly rolled out. In terms of fixing them, first of all, they are out of our approach, even if we could be do something, the problems are more than what we can offer to fix. Second, they are out of scope except which we’ve provided the instructions for. That’s only the single side of the scenario.
The other side is that these problems won’t be there all the time. By the time more and more Mac users and non-Apple users will install Catalina on a virtual machine or on their actual Macs, more and more problems will be recognized and send to Apple. In result, Apple will send a software update that will solve those problems. This will solve most of the problems even those which you had problem with, doesn’t matter you did something to solve it or not. Besides fixing those problems, there are huge things which a software update does.
One of those important reasons for updating your Mac is a security vulnerability. While Apple is widely popular for its security but it needs more and more updates for strengthening it. Including these, there is a range of updates to improve the new and previous apps and features. For example, Apple improves the photos and fixed bugs and compatibility issue with SwiftUI in XCode 11 with the fifth release of macOS Catalina update.
