Apple have announced following the Apple Event that they will be releasing macOS Catalina to compatible Macs in October of this year. It’s strange that Apple have chosen to do this, considering all other software is launching before the end of September. Apple have not elaborated on why they have made this decision.
macOS 10.15 Catalina is the newest version of macOS, and brings with it some nifty new features. With macOS Catalina, Apple are dividing iTunes into three separate apps – Music, Podcasts, and TV. Also, macOS Catalina has a new framework named Catalyst, which lets developers port their iPad apps to the Mac, meaning that you’ll be able to use iPad apps on your Mac (provided developers bring it to the Mac). Sidecar is another great new feature coming to macOS Catalina! Sidecar allows you to use your iPad as a wireless second screen for your Mac, and speaking from experience, it’s seriously cool! Other new features such as Screen Time, Apple Pencil mark-up, more security features, and the ‘Find My’ are some more things coming to macOS Catalina.
macOS Catalina is a free update, and Apple also announced the release date for iOS 13, iPadOS, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13
