We’ll be blunt. Do not upgrade to macOS 10.15 Catalina right away and do not update your home computers! We recommend waiting until at least 10.15.3 or early 2020, whichever comes first. Then, contact us for help making sure Catalina won’t destroy your workflow. We are becoming familiar with macOS 10.15 ourselves, and we are actively testing it. We are blocking the Catalina macOS 10.15 Installer until we are sure it will not interfere with your workflow.
Apple plans to release macOS 10.15 Catalina sometime in October, and like all major operating system releases, Apple has been talking it up since it was introduced at the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June. It will feature new Music, TV, and Podcasts apps to replace iTunes. A new Catalyst technology will make it easier for developers to make their iPad apps available for the Mac. Photos, Reminders, and Notes all get major upgrades. Screen Time has migrated over from iOS. And Sidecar lets you use an iPad as a second screen or graphics tablet with an Apple Pencil.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? It will be… eventually. We are upgrading non-essential machines right away so we can become more familiar with the ins and outs of Catalina, but our recommendation to you, right now, is simple:
PLEASE do not upgrade to Catalina until we give you the go-ahead. Want more details?
