With macOS Catalina, your favorite applications become more beautiful and smart. The things you do every visit are easier.
Photos have a new, immersive and dynamic look that showcases your photos and memories. See the best photos in your library, without duplicates and distractions. Browse your favorite photos by date, month and year, and see a bigger preview for your photos. Photos also become more intelligent and able to highlight important moments such as birthdays, anniversaries and trips.
An updated start page will help you access all your favorites and frequently visited sites quickly and easily. And Siri’s suggestions include bookmarks, links from your reading list, iCloud Tab, links that you receive via Message, and more. A new gallery view and a more reliable search feature help you find notes faster. Shared folders allow you to collaborate on entire notes folders with other people or in a group. And the new checklist option allows you to move finished items to the bottom, rearrange items by dragging and dropping them, and various other things.
The new Track Application integrates Find Friends and Find My iPhone into an easy-to-use application on Mac, iPadOS and iOS devices. Track can help you find the location of a lost Mac – even when it’s lost and in sleep mode – by sending a Bluetooth signal that can be detected by Apple devices used nearby. These devices can radiate your Mac’s location detection to iCloud so you can find it in the Track application. All of these processes are anonymous and encrypted as a whole, so no one, including Apple, knows the identity of the device being reported. And because reporting is done surreptitiously using little data that hitches a ride on existing network traffic, you don’t need to worry about your battery life, your data usage, or your privacy.
MacOS Catalina includes new features to help everyone maximize the benefits of Mac. Voice Control allows users who don’t use traditional input devices to fully control Mac, iPadOS, and iOS devices with their voice. The new tool for users with low vision enables them to zoom in on the second screen or view high-resolution text for items under the cursor.
