Apple has released the first public beta for macOS 10.15 Catalina and iOS 13 ahead of its July release. macOS 10.15 Catalina brings forth several new changes, including updated Podcast, Books, and TV apps, as well as the introduction of several new replacement apps for standard iTunes features like Apple Music. There’s also a new “Find My” application as well as Sidecar, which allows users to use iPads as external displays.
Meanwhile, the public beta for iOS 13 showcases a highly-anticipated Dark Mode feature alongside revamped Photos and Reminders apps. It also boasts a newly designed HUD for volume as well as significant improvements to Safari and overall performances. Apple also released its new iPad operating system, which introduces updates to the home screen and a fresh design for the Files app, folder sharing for iCloud Drive, and more.
Although the public beta for each operating system is available, please download at your own discretion, as there are several bug and performance issues being reported. Check out Apple’s beta site to download, although due to high traffic and updates, the site may be down for a short period of time.
