Curious about the new features in macOS 10.15 Catalina version but do not know how to update? Currently this version is in developer beta (the beta will be made public in July). All you need to try out macOS Catalina despite possible errors is having an Apple Developer account.
After spending $ 100 to participate in the Apple Developer Program, you can reach the beta of macOS Catalina. This version features notable new features Sidecar (turning iPad into an external display for Mac), Music on macOS (replacing iTunes) and the new Photos app.
You need macOS 10.15 to use Apple’s other betas. On June 4, Apple announced that the installation requires macOS 10.15 beta or Xcode 11 beta, to be installed via iTunes. Many people have questioned this information because Apple removed iTunes in iOS 10.15. However, the tools you need to install the iOS and iPadOS developer beta are available in Finder in macOS 10.15. Just click on the device on the left menu in the Finder after plugging it into your iPhone or iPad.
During installation, you’ll get a warning about 32-bit apps installed on your computer that won’t work in macOS 10.15. After installing Catalina, you’ll see a notification about Screen Time and other new features.
