MacBook Pro with macOS Catalina

macOS Catalina Available Now

Apple today announced the general availability of macOS Catalina for all users. If you've ever thought about using your tablet as a secondary "control" display for your computer, then that is what Apple implemented into the MacOS Catalina and the iPad OS on iPad and it's called the "SideCar". Music, Podcasts, and TV have been split into three desktop apps because the old iTunes app was overburdened and awful to use.

The Music app will primarily be focused on streaming music through Apple Music, although users will retain their old library of whatever 2000s emo, electro-pop, or chillwave MP3s that they still have lying around.

You won't need an additional subscription to take advantage of Apple Arcade for Mac - by paying the monthly fee, you can access your favorite games on Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and the iPod Touch.

More iPad apps will be ported to macOS in the coming weeks and months through the Mac Catalyst project. The feature even includes Apple Pencil support, meaning you can use Apple's flagship stylus on certain Mac apps.

Catalina brings a few new features, with one of the biggest being Catalyst. It uses the latest version of Siri speech recognition technology to transcribe spoken text and enable editing text via voice.

This feature was available to users in the Beta of iOS 13 and early versions of Catalina, where right-clicking a folder on iCloud Drive gave users the options to generate a private link to a folder that could be shared through, Mail, Messages, AirDrop or even your contacts. Netflix, for example, says that it will not bring its iPad app to the Mac.

Though the features and services mentioned above are the main additions joining the macOS ecosystem with Catalina, there are plenty of smaller updates of note, as well.

Instead, the Mac joins iPhones in getting separate apps for music, video and other media.

Whenever you make the move to a fresh-off-the-shelf new operating system, we highly recommend backing up the files on your Mac, so if anything goes wrong you can quickly restore your machine to its previous working order.
