Apple macOS Catalina 10.15: Don't Upgrade Yet
Posted by Andrew McAllister on 07 October 2019 01:34 PM

Apple is releasing its newest version of macOS today called Catalina, but we can't recommend that you upgrade yet. Why?

1. macOS Catalina 10.15 marks the end of 32-bit application support in macOS. 

Many apps that have not yet been updated will not work. This includes any application that you may have received a warning about in Mojave 10.14.

2. We haven't yet tested all of our apps and workflows against it yet

Early adopters usually encounter a few bumps, and we don't want that to be you.
