Here is macOS 10.15 Catalina Sidecar compatibility list for your Mac. Apple announced a new version of macOS earlier this week, and macOS 10.15 Catalina has one feature in particular that has iPad users very interested indeed.

Sidecar is a feature that lets users extend their Mac’s desktop onto an iPad running the unreleased iPadOS 13, and developer Steve Troughton-Smith has been able to confirm which macs are supported.

While macOS 10.15 Catalina is supported by a wide swathe of Macs, the Sidecar feature itself appears to be limited to more recent devices or, at least, more powerful ones. According to Troughton-Smith, Sidecar will work with the following currently available – or announced – Macs:

  • iMac 27″ (Late 2015) or newer
  • MacBook Pro (2016) or newer
  • mac Mini (2018)
  • Mac Pro (2019)
  • MacBook Air (2018)
  • MacBook (Early 2016) or newer
  • iMac Pro (2017) or newer

The developer also posted a screenshot of all of the devices that are currently blacklisted by Sidecar, and it makes for quite the collection of product names. Interestingly, the 2013 Mac Pro that is currently on sale is not one of the supported  devices either.

Sidecar will not only allow users to extend their desktop onto an iPad, but will also allow them to move specific UI elements there to be interacted with. With Apple Pencil support thrown in, users could take advantage of the stylus to effectively draw in a Mac app once all required software updates have been made available.

Apple will ship macOS 10.15 Catalina and iPadOS 13 to the public later this year and both updates are currently available as developer builds.
