Apple's New macOS Catalina Now Available To Everyone

After released macOS Catalina 10.15 Golden Master last week, Apple has officially made the latest Mac operating system available to the general public. You can now install the update through the Mac App Store for free, and here is the list of Macs that are compatible with macOS Catalina 10.15:
  • 2015 MacBook and later
  • 2012 iMac and later
  • 2012 MacBook Air and later
  • 2017 iMac Pro and later
  • 2012 MacBook Pro and later
  • 2013 Mac Pro and later
  • 2012 Mac mini and later
macOS Catalina 10.15 introduced three popular entertainment apps, the Apple Music, Apple Podcast and Apple TV app to replace iTunes, a media player, media library, Internet radio broadcaster, and mobile device management application developed by the iPhone maker that was unveiled on January 9, 2001. iOS device management now available in the Finder app, as iTunes no longer available now.

Additionally, macOS Catalina also includes the new Sidecar feature, which turns the iPad as a second display for your Mac or to be used as a high-precision input device in several Mac creative apps. Like it did in iOS 13, Apple has revamped the Reminders app and added a new Voice Control feature, as well as a new Find My app so you can track your devices even without access to the Internet.

In an effort to increase the number of apps available on the macOS App Store, Apple on WWDC 2019 introduced a new and powerful developer initiative called Project Catalyst, while Apple also added more security options, for example, use Apple Watch to approve security prompts for passwords, plus a new start page in Safari, and Mail now can mute email threads and blocking senders for you.

Apple Arcade, a new-kind-of games subscription is also available for Mac users. Arcade offers 100 games that are designed and developed by its developers. Every player will be given titles that come with everything. All games on Apple Arcade are ad-free and no in-app purchases. The service offers one month of the free trial period, and it will charge $5 per month once the trial ends.

Other features and changes that Apple added in macOS Catalina including a Screen Time window that monitor the time you spent on your Mac, a new Photos app that shows your best shots arranged by day, month or year, and 32-bit apps will no longer be supported in macOS Catalina.
