macOS Catalina Download

macOS Catalina (version 10.15) is the sixteenth and current major launch of macOS, Apple’s desktop operating system for Macintosh computers. It is the successor to macOS Mojave and was announced at WWDC 2019 on June 3, 2019, and released to the public on October 7, 2019. Catalina is the first version of macOS to support only 64-bit applications and the first to include Activation Lock.

macOS Catalina gives you more of everything you love about Mac. Experience music, TV and podcasts in three all-new Mac apps. Even you can enjoy your favorite iPad apps now on your Mac. Extend your workspace and expand your creativity with the iPad and Apple Pencil. And discover smart new features in the apps you use every day. Now you can take everything you do above and beyond.

Benefits of macOS Catalina

Music, TV, and podcasts take center stage.

iTunes forever changed the way people experienced music, movies, and podcasts. It all changes again with three all-new, dedicated apps — Apple Music, Apple TV and Apple Podcasts — each designed from the ground up to be the best way to enjoy entertainment on your Mac. And rest assured, everything you had in your iTunes library is still accessible in each app. iCloud seamlessly syncs everything across your devices — or you can back up, restore and sync by connecting the device directly to your Mac.

Apple TV Premiering on Mac.

The Apple TV app for Mac is the new home for all your favorite movies and Apple TV+. Watch everything directly in the app or enjoy it offline, and discover the best of what’s on in the Watch Now tab. You can even pick up where you left off on any screen, across all your devices. And for the first time, 4K and Dolby Atmos supported movies are available on Mac.

Apple TV

Listen up. Podcasts on Mac.

The best entertainment, comedy, news and sports shows are now available on your Mac with Apple Podcasts. Search for podcasts by title, topic, guest, host, content and more. Subscribe and be notified as soon as new episodes become available. And in the Listen Now tab, you can easily pick up where you left off across all your devices.


iPad Apps on your Mac.

Experience your favorite iPad apps now on your Mac. With Mac Catalyst, developers can easily create Mac apps from the iPad apps you already know and love. They run natively alongside your existing Mac apps so you can drag and drop content between them. They take full advantage of the larger screen and powerful architecture of your Mac. And because they are built from their iOS versions, they provide a seamless experience across your devices. Enjoy a broad range of Mac apps — from travel, entertainment and gaming to banking, education and project management.

iPad Apps

Extend your desktop. With iPad.

Sidecar lets you extend your workspace by using your iPad as a second Mac display. Work in one app while you reference another or view your artwork on your Mac while you use tools and palettes on your iPad. You can also mirror the screens so they both display the same content, making it perfect for sharing exactly what you see with others.

Features of macOS Catalina

Photos: Photos have a new immersive, dynamic look that showcases your photos and memories. See only the best shots in your library, without the duplicates and clutter. Browse your favorite photos by days, months and years and get larger previews of all your photos. And Photos is even smarter, so it can highlight important moments like birthdays, anniversaries and trips.
Notes: A new gallery view and a more powerful search help you find your notes quicker than ever. Shared folders let you collaborate on entire folders of notes with another person or a group. And new checklist options let you move completed items to the bottom, quickly reorder items using drag and drop, and more.

Reminders: The Reminders app has been completely rebuilt, with an all-new design and new ways to easily create, organize and keep track of reminders. Add attachments to reminders, create or change reminders with the quick edit buttons and let Siri suggest new ones found in Messages. Smart lists automatically organize and display your upcoming reminders. And if you tag someone in a reminder, you’ll be notified the next time you’re chatting in Messages.

Safari: An updated start page helps you easily and quickly access your favorites and frequently visited sites. And Siri suggestions surface bookmarks, iCloud Tabs and links from your reading list, as well as those you receive in Messages.

Apple Arcade:  Unlimited access to over 100 new games for your Mac — all in a game subscription service unlike any other. Start playing on your Mac and jump to your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
Express your creativity with Apple Pencil: Bring the ease and precision of Apple Pencil to your favorite creative Mac apps with Sidecar. Just drag your app window from your Mac to your iPad as you would with any second display. Then use Apple Pencil to design in Illustrator, edit photos in Affinity Photo or create 3D models in ZBrush. The handy sidebar puts essential Command, Control and Shift keys at your fingertips.
Voice Control: Easily navigate your Mac using just your voice. Improved dictation and richer text editing features make writing more efficient, while comprehensive commands let you open and interact with virtually any app. Navigate an app by calling outnumbered labels next to clickable items or by superimposing a grid that lets you select, zoom and drag with verbal commands.
Zoom Display: If you have two screens, you can keep one screen zoomed-in close while the other remains at a standard resolution. It’s great for everyday work and giving a presentation.
Hover Text: Hover Text makes it easier to view the text on your Mac display. Just hover over any text with your cursor and press Command. You’ll get a dedicated window with large, high-resolution text. You can even choose the fonts and colors.
