Apple has just announced its desktop operating system’s recent version, macOS Catalina.
Catalina is bringing the death of iTunes and brand new music, podcasts and a TV app. iOS device synchronization has shifted to Finder.
Podcasts features driven search machine-learning by discovering text spoken in the podcast.
The latest TV app looks very much like the iOS TV app. Compatible playback of content involves content from 4 K HDR and Atmos.
Apple also allows consumers to use their iPad as their Mac’s second screen. This function is branded as ‘ Sidecar. ‘
Apple is adding to macOS and iOS a fresh accessibility function called’ Voice Control,’ which allows users to control the entire operating system by talking commands. You can edit text, open applications and files, scroll around the interface, choose objects, share pictures, and more. To provide wealthy navigation and dictation characteristics, Apple utilizes on-device processing.
Apple is also launching a new ‘ Find My ‘ app that connects Finding My iPhone with Finding My Friends. It also makes Bluetooth beacons for all your Apple devices. This implies finding offline equipment depending on the closeness of anybody in the globe is now feasible.
For extra safety, Macs with T2 chips now feature Activation Lock. The fresh redesign of photos and reminders can also be found on the Mac.
Screen Time also comes to the Mac, allowing users to combine their activity graphs and screen limitations across any Apple device.
Also, Apple is bringing its UIKit to the Mac framework to enable developers to quickly take iPad applications to the Mac; the Marzipan project has been officially named’ Catalyst.’ Apple suggests the app experience should be considerably enhanced compared to what was seen in Mojave’s Voice Memos, News, Home and Stocks app.
Twitter is going to use Catalyst to take back to the Mac an official Twitter client. By porting their iPad experience, Apple encouraged Atlassian to demo a fresh JIRA bug reporting client for macOS.
As a free software update, macOS Catalina will be accessible this fall.
