Apple launched several updates for all its operating systems, including iOS 13, watchOS 6, and macOS Catalina. For its part, the new macOS Catalina 10.15.1 version comes with new emojis, support for AirPods Pro, as well as some features borrowed from iOS 13.2.
macOS Catalina is the latest release in the macOS series. Apple has recently rolled out an update for the operating series, the macOS 10.15.1 version. This one brings some novelties, as well as improvements and bug fixes.
What’s new in macOS Catalina 10.15.1?
The most notable novelty is the support for AirPods Pro, the earbuds that Apple released recently, that the new macOS Catalina 10.15.1 update brings. Besides, the latest version of the OS comes with 70 new emojis, including gender-neutral, accessibility-focused, and various skin-toned emojis.
Also noteworthy, macOS Catalina 10.15.1 comes with enhanced security and privacy settings, which permit users to refuse to share their Siri recordings with Apple for future improvements of the assistant. That is something that some macOS and iOS users have asked for a long time now since the Siri virtual assistant emerged on the two systems.
Another addition is that the Home App is now supporting the Apple AirPlay 2 speakers to be added to scenes ad automatic routines. Also, it now supports watching videos from HomeKit-enabled security cameras.
Last but not least, many other performance improvements and bug fixes rolled out along with macOS Catalina 10.15.1. The majority of fixes tackle some issues in apps such as Photos, Messages, Contacts, and others.
WatchOS 6.1 also launched with novelties and AirPods Pro support
Just like the other recent Apple updates, watchOS 6.1 also brings AirPods Pro support. Besides this novelty, Apple’s operating system for smartwatches came out with a series of performance and stability improvements and some bug fixes.
AirPods Pro just launched, so it’s evident that Apple had to prepare the ground for them. That’s why the recent updates, macOS Catalina 10.15.1, iOS 13.2, and watchOS 6.1 added AirPods Pro support.
