Apple releases macOS Catalina : How to Update?

Finally the macOS update is out and here is how you can download and install macOS Catalina Public release version on your Mac.

-

Last month during September, we got the iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS updates. But one of the significant upgrades was not released along with them. It is a MacOS Catalina.

Apple announced macOS Catalina during the WWDC 2019 in June 2019. Since which, we have received a lot of updates and betas of macOS Catalina. But the beta versions are not as good and stable as the public release version.

It is because, after the announcement, Apple allows its developers to use the operating system and help Apple develop it better. It let Apple do its testing before the official launch and will enable developers to update their apps for the new macOS update.

There are a lot of new features and added updates to this year’s macOS update. We wrote about all the features and updates coming to it in earlier.

You can read about all the MacOS Catalina Features here.

Now that you have read about the features and the updates coming along with macOS Catalina, let us move ahead and install it on your Mac.

But, before we move ahead, we need to check if your Mac is compatible and getting the update or not.
