Is going to release a new OS, that is macOS 10.15, also called macOS Catalina. It comes with all new features and apps. One of the biggest changes in this update is saying goodbye to iTunes. Apple has released a “Device Support Update” for macOS Big Sur, Catalina, and Mojave. The vague software update is said to ensure “proper updating and restoring for iOS and iPadOS devices”, suggesting the update is necessary for the Mac to function properly with common maintenance activities for iPhone and iPad. I have a Mac mini (2018) running MacOS 10.15.6 (Catalina) and tried to share internet through USB to my iPhone SE 1st Gen. On the Sharing Preference I have the the Internet Sharing on and the iPhone USB box checked. In Content Caching I have the Internet Connection box checked. Apple on Tuesday released an update to macOS Catalina, its operating system for the Macintosh. Version 10.15.1 comes after the company released the macOS Catalina Supplemental Update earlier this. MacOS Catalina 10.15.5 introduces battery health management in the Energy Saver settings for notebooks, an option to control automatic prominence of video tiles on Group FaceTime calls, and controls to fine-tune the built-in calibration of your Pro Display XDR. The update also improves the stability, reliability, and security of your Mac.
When you upgrade to macOS Catalina, you get more of everything you love about Mac. Experience dedicated apps for music, TV, and podcasts. Smart new features in the apps you use every day. And Sidecar, which lets you use iPad as a second Mac display. Best of all, upgrading is free and easy.
Mac computers with Metal-capable graphics processors (GPUs) can upgrade to macOS Catalina.
Before you upgrade, we recommend that you back up your Mac. Then, if your Mac is running OS X Mavericks 10.9 or later, you can upgrade directly to macOS Catalina.
Go to Software Update in System Preferences to find the macOS Catalina upgrade. Click Upgrade Now and follow the onscreen instructions to begin your upgrade.
If you’re running High Sierra (10.13), Sierra (10.12), or El Capitan (10.11), upgrade to macOS Catalina from the App Store. If you’re running Lion (10.7) or Mountain Lion (10.8), you will need to upgrade to El Capitan (10.11) first.
