macOS Catalina Features
- screen time
With the release of macOS Catalina Apple is bringing the screen time from iOS to macOS. It works on the same module as in iOS. It traces the amount of time spent on apps, the ability to set time limits on the apps. Screen Time settings are synced across all devices so any limit you apply will be applicable for your usage across all Apple devices you own.
Screen time in the macOS Catalina is achieved by “one more minute” features that boost to add extra one minute when their time limit expires to save their work or game.
- Improved Photos App
The photo app is the major upgrade in the macOS Catalina. It now smart enough to hide the duplicate photos, only surface interesting photo, and other main change includes browsing photos by days, months, and years, with the app automatically highlighting important events like birthdays, trips, and more.
