We’re stoked about the massive update coming to Macs this autumn.

We’ve got hands-on with Catalina this issue to tell you how it works, how it feels and how it’s going to revolutionise the way you work and interact with your Mac.

why we can’t wait for macos catalina

It’s been a while since the beloved Mac took centre stage at one of Apple’s glitzy product launches. You don’t have to go back far in time to remember an era when Steve Jobs waxed lyrical about every new iteration of Apple’s personal computers, or when they frequently made headline news in the tech world. These days, the glamour announcement is the iPhone. It could even be argued that iPad and Apple Watch come higher in the pecking order than Mac these days. But, what has never changed, is that once a year at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, Mac users get treated to an in-depth preview of the next operating system to land on their machines. This year, Apple showed off macOS Catalina – and there’s loads to look forward to. “With…

macos catalina

Taking its name from the Santa Catalina Island that lies off the coast of southern California, the latest version of macOS (version 10.15) introduces a host of enticing new features while shaking up a few of the old ones. Take iTunes for example. A macOS staple since 2001, this app is being retired and in its place are three new apps, each one specialising in a service previously accessible through the bloated iTunes interface. In the Music app you have full access to your iTunes library and, of course, the Apple Music streaming service; in Podcasts you can browse and listen to the cream of digital broadcasting; and in the TV app you can access entertainment from the small and big screen in 4K HDR. Catalina also introduces Sidecar, which allows…

sidecar almost turns your ipad into a mac

Sidecar is a very clever feature that leverages the iPad screen in a way that many have dreamed of ever since the iPad was launched. It doesn’t quite allow you to run macOS on your iPad, but it does let you use the iPad as a second display to show a specific app or to mirror what is already displaying on your Mac. When you consider the size of some of the newer iPad Pro models this will make for a decent size screen that will be practical in use as well as offering an extra function that would otherwise be unavailable. You will be able to position the iPad as you need to, flat on a desk or upright next to your main Mac screen, and you can then…
