Apple macOS Catalina now available for all users

The latest version of Apple's macOS operating system, macOS Catalina (10.15), is now available.

Apple's other big innovation, the iPhone, also helped to stomp iTunes into the curb.

You'll also find extensive Screen Time options in the settings menu, more or less matching what's already available on iOS. With Sidecar, you can use an iPad display for tablet input to draw, sketch or write with Apple Pencil in any Apple or third-party Mac app that supports stylus input. Games can even be played across devices, so players can pick up from their last game save, whether they're at home or on the go. A software simulation of the Mac Touch Bar appears too, should you ever have any reason to utilise it. Apple is now saying we won't get our hands on it until next spring.

Apple charges $4.99 in the United States and £4.99 in the UK for its gaming subscription service, this then allows up to six family members access to the games.

The new OS was officially revealed this June, with the public beta coming out later the same month. You'll also notice more promotional Apple TV+ material in the new TV app, which makes sense - the streaming service launches November 1st. The new Music app is fast and features over 50 million songs, playlists and music videos. Users' personal libraries will be automatically sorted into the new applications.

After the update, you will see the Apple TV + service for promotional purposes.

Sidecard runs over either a wired or wireless connection, allowing you to charge your iPad as you work or keep it disconnected for greater portability.

Alternatively, you can download macOS Catalina directly from the Mac App Store. Meanwhile, you can check out all the new features offered by macOS Catalina. Once the new macOS Catalina installer was downloaded, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation, which should take up to an hour. The new Podcasts app will provide one with access to over 700K podcasts from different genres. The addition of hover text is similarly created to help those with vision problems.

IT'S THE END OF THE ROAD for iTunes, as the once-revolutionary programme has been killed off with the release of macOS Catalina.

Did Apple actually nail it the first time around, when iPods and iTunes actually gave digital users complete control over their music collections? Gatekeeper has been revamped and apps are now required to ask permission before accessing your files. We'll break down the key additions below, but you can visit the official announcement post for all of the nitty-gritty details. This includes standalone programs for music, podcasts and TV; a redesigned Reminders app; and new features in Notes, Safari, Mail and Photos. Open up the App Store in your current version of macOS, then search for macOS Catalina.
