Apple Releases macOS Catalina Beta 4 to Developers
If you're a registered developer, you can download the latest macOS Catalina beta 4 on your supported Mac devices using the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences. Since it is an early build, we would recommend you to not install it on your daily driver because of the hefty bugs that it is carrying. There are several changes made in firmware, which users might already be familiar with.
Some of the features include the elimination of the iTunes app. The company has divided the app into three different apps - Music, Podcast and TV apps. The Apple TV app will be available later this year. There's also a new Sidecar feature which allows you to turn your iPad into a second display. The Apple Watch can also be used to approve security prompts, enhancing overall security. Macs with the T2 chip also supports Activation Lock.
Other than this, there is a boatload of new additions in macOS Catalina as well. You can check the features out by installing the latest macOS Catalina beta 4 on your Macs.
