Apple macOS Catalina 10.15: testing underway; do not install yet

This message only applies to Apple Mac users.

Apple has released macOS Catalina 10.15, the latest version of its operating system (OS) for Mac computers. macOS Catalina offers you everything you love about your Mac and much more.

A range of new applications – Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Podcasts – replaces iTunes. The iTunes store, however, is still available via Apple Music. Additionally, your iPad apps can now be added to your Mac too.

One of the most talked-about updates of this version is the ability to extend your Mac’s display to your iPad so you can work on two screens simultaneously.

Visit the Apple Mac website for all the new and exciting updates this macOS version has to offer.

Do not install Catalina just yet

While you may be keen to update to Catalina, we ask that you please wait for ICTS to complete its testing, which is currently underway. The testing helps us to check that this operating system does not conflict with existing software and systems already in use on campus.

We will notify you as soon as our testing is completed, after which you can install the update via the App store.

Until such time, ICTS will not be able to support macOS Catalina.
