In Catalina will Apple the iTunes App with three separate apps: Apple Music Apple Podcasts and Apple TV. Equally useful is the review that lets Mac users run iPad apps download them from the Mac App Store and use a iPad as their second screen, much as you could use a monitor ,

See if you can run Catalina

Although Catalina offers a wealth of enhancements, the hardware requirements remain the same as for MacOS Mojave, the current version of the operating system. So if you can do Mojave, you can do Catalina. The following Macs meet the requirements:

To check which Mac you have, choose About This Mac from the Apple menu. The Overview tab shows which Mac you have.

Before Installing Catalina …

Before you download and install the MacOS update, you can make some preparations to make sure that switching to Catalina is as smooth as possible.

Make a backup copy. Before you download and install the MacOS update, you should make a good, up-to-date backup copy of the contents of your Mac drive if something goes south during installation or afterward and you need to go back. You can use either the Time Machine backup utility built into your Mac or a Mac backup app such as Carbon Copy Cloner

. Know your Apple ID. If you're a Mac user, you probably have an Apple ID. If not, get one as you will most likely need it during the installation process of Catalina and logging in to iCloud.

Check your free space. The download is large – about 6.5GB – and Apple has stated that you probably should have over 20GB of free space to install Catalina.

Update your apps. With Catalina, Apple disables support for 32-bit apps. If you have an older app that you are still using, such as For example, Microsoft Office 11 for Mac, check if you have a 64-bit version of the app before switching to Catalina.

To search for 32-bit apps, choose About This Mac from the Apple menu and click the System Report button. In the system report in the sidebar, scroll down to Software and select Applications. If you select a single application, a field named 64-bit (Intel) will be displayed. If you see Yes it's 64-bit; No means 32-bit.

If you see No next to 64-bit (Intel), the app will not run in Catalina [19659003] Screenshot Clifford Colby / CNET

Verify that a 64-bit version of the app is available. Otherwise, you will either have to find a replacement or stick to your current MacOS so you can continue to use the software.

Originally released earlier this summer. Updated with new information.
