Apple’s macOS 10.15 Catalina update is one that is perhaps of more interest to people than usual Mac updates. In recent years, it’s the iPhone and iPad that have been in receipt of the best new features but 2019 is bringing the Mac back to the fore. That means macOS 10.16 Catalina is in high demand and you can download the public beta now.
Of course, we wouldn’t suggest that you do that unless you have a spare Mac on which to do it. Even installing on different partitions and different drives can potentially cause issues if you’re sharing data, so keep that in mind.
If you do want to take macOS 10.15 Catalina for a spin, you’ll need one of the following Macs in order to do it – MacBook (Early 2016 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2012 or newer), MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 or newer), Mac mini (Late 2012 or newer), iMac (Late 2012 or newer), iMac Pro (2017), or Mac Pro (Late 2013).
If you do have one of those Macs, here’s how to get macOS 10.15 Catalina installed.
Sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program
You’ll need to be enrolled in Apple’s beta program to get started.
