On the first day of WWDC 2019 (June 3rd), Apple announced the next major update to Mac’s operating systems – macOS 10.15 Catalina.
Along with its reveal, Apple also announced that iTunes will be replaced with a trio of dedicated media applications – Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV. Also, macOS Catalina will allow users to link an iPad to their Macs as a secondary monitor or a drawing tablet. On top of that, macOS 10.15 will also include iPad apps.
But will every user be able to run the new OS installment? It appears that the hardware requirements remain the same as for macOS Mojave (the current version of macOS).
Here’s a list of devices that will be able to run OS Catalina:
iMac Pro 2017 or later;
Mac Pro 2013 or later;
Mac Mini 2012 or later;
MacBook 2015 or later;
MacBook Air 2012 or later;
MacBook Pro 2012 or later.
If you are not sure which Mac you have, or what version OS it’s running, here’s what you need to do:
1. Go to Apple‘s menu.
2. Choose About This Mac.
Apple will release macOS 10.15 Catalina this fall. But if you don’t want to wait until then, you can download the public beta of Catalina, which will be available in July.
