Apple has officially released the MacOS 10.15 Catalina operating system update which can already be downloaded by Mac computer and MacBook laptops users starting Tuesday (8/10/2019).
The latest update can be downloaded for free via the Apple icon in the top left corner of the Mac computer, select ‘System preferences‘ then click ‘Software update‘. Because the size is around 8GB, users are advised to download using a WiFi connection.
macOS 10.15 Catalina Features
macOS Catalina also has support for iPad applications on macOS, through Project Catalyst, which can run some software from Apple tablets to desktop or laptop computers.
There is also a Sidecar feature where iPad users can make a Mac computer screen as a secondary screen, both wirelessly and wired.
Other additional features included are Screen Time and tighter privacy protection, such as applications that require permission to access desktops, documents, iCloud Drive, and external storage.
Another security feature that is no less important is Activation Lock. With this feature, a Mac laptop or desktop that has a T2 security chip cannot be removed or reactivated without an Apple ID password, similar to the anti-theft feature of the iPhone.
