macOS Catalina Features New Colorful Screensaver Called ‘Drift’

Apple doesn’t tend to change the screensavers that it ships with macOS all that often so when it does, it’s worth taking note. The company slipped a new screensaver into macOS 10.15 Catalina beta 3 this week.

The new screensaver, called Drift, is made up of an array of multi-colored 3D light array that moves and pulses similar to a wave would. That makes for a gorgeous effect that also resembles something you might see deep in an ocean.

It’s certainly a gorgeous screensaver and we found ourselves staring at it for longer than we’d care to admit.

This screensaver is far from the biggest reason to update to macOS 10.15 Catalina when it is released to the public later this year. New and updated apps like TV, Music, and Podcasts will replace the aging iTunes while new iOS-like features like Screen Time will also come to the Mac for the first time.

Apple is also making it possible to use macOS and iPadOS together via the new Sidecar feature. With Sidecar enabled users can use a Mac as a second monitor, complete with Apple Pencil support. The iPad can also be used to display Touch Bar controls and it can even function as an external graphics tablet, too.

Apple will make macOS 10.15 Catalina available to the public later this year. The release is expected to coincide with the arrival of iOS 13, iPadOS 13, tvOS 13, and watchOS 6 in or around the month of September.
