Together with iOS 13, watchOS 6, iPadOS and tvOS 13, Apple showed macOS 10.15 Catalina. The new version of the operating system for Mac computers contains many innovations that mainly concern performance, but at the same time, it differs in serious innovations – in particular, the updated iTunes application.

macOS Catalina Release Dates
Apple’s macOS 10.15 operating system, called Catalina, may appear as early as next week. Earlier, Apple promised to release macOS in October, and the exact date is already known.
The macOS Catalina update will be released on October 4 – a Danish version of the Apple website accidentally reported this.
In macOS Catalina, Apple officially authorized the use of iPad tablets as a second screen. A new feature is called Sidecar. It consists not only in displaying content, but also in tight integration: for example, data can be entered on a Mac using a stylus and iPad.

How to Upgrade to macOS Catalina?
Explanatory update instructions are provided on our website. I won’t repeat it, I’ll just say that make a backup just in case, if you worry about data safety. The advice is extremely simple and obvious, but for some reason it is often neglected.
iTunes is Gone!
iTunes is no longer exist, and instead there are applications Music, Podcasts and Apple TV, that is, songs, podcasts and movies now live in each application. This separation is clearly to my liking!
One way or another, if you already want to try these innovations for yourself, nobody forbids trying a new system. There is a high chance that you, like me, will not want to return to Mojave. Therefore, I wish the bold a successful update, and to everyone else a speedy release.
