Apple Releases macOS Catalina Golden Master to Developers - Download Now
macOS Catalina Golden Master indicates that it is the last version of the firmware which will be provided to the public at release. If you're up for it, the new version can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences once you have installed a proper configuration profile from the Apple Developer Center.
macOS Catalina Golden Master brings a bevy of forward-facing additions to the table. This includes the elimination of the iTunes app which has now been split into three separate apps - Music, Podcast and TV apps. All of these apps perform the same functionality but the categories are streamlined for smoother user experience.
The new Sidecar feature will allow Mac users to turn their iPad into a second display. Apple Pencil support is also present, so you're basically deriving more utility out of it as it can be used with several apps like Photoshop and Illustrator.
The Apple Watch can now also be used to approve security prompts for passwords and other information and the trend has been brought forward in macOS Catalina Golden Master version like earlier beta builds. Screen Time has also made it to macOS along with several other features and additions for developers. The Photos app has seen a shift in design as well which is now more organized than before. Similarly, Safari, Mail and other apps have also seen extensions and design variations.
There will be more details on macOS Catalina Golden Master which we will share as they arrive. If you haven't, you can download it right now on your compatible Mac devices. Here's how to download macOS Catalina on your Mac.
