Get your mac ready for Catalina MacOS 10.15
Apple just released Catalina at the beginning of October, so it’s a good time to get your Mac ready for the upgrade.
Is Catalina supported on my Mac?
The short answer here is if you are currently running Mojave on your Mac, it can run Catalina.
The following models will support the Catalina upgrade.
MacBook introduced in early 2015 or later
MacBook Air mid 2012 or later
MacBook Pro mid 2012 or later
Mac mini late 2012 or later
iMac introduced in late 2012 or later
iMac Pro (all models)
Before you upgrade
Create a resent Backup of your files
In order for it to go smoothly and to avoid data loss it is a good idea to Backup up your Mac. Using Time Machine makes it simple and is already built into your MacOS. If you are currently using Time Machine for your backup routine it is worth checking to see that it is working and making backups.
Connect to the internet
It takes time to download and install macOS, so make sure that you have a reliable Internet connection. If you're using a Mac notebook computer, make sure it is plugged into AC power.
Download macOS Catalina installation file
Go to the App Store to get the macOS Catalina installer. Then click the Get button to download.
Keep in mind, during the upgrade your Mac needs at least 2GB of memory and up to 20GB of available storage space, not including the Catalina download file which is about 7GB.
Check for 32-Bit Apps
It is a good idea to update your apps before the upgrade. Catalina does not support 32-Bit Apps, to see a list of Mac’s existing application, click on “about this Mac “from the Apple menu, then click on “system Report”. Scroll down to the software section and look at the column headed 64-Bit. The 32-bit application will each be marked “No”. Apple suggest to check with the software developer to see if the 64-Bit version of your favorite app is available.
Launch the installation
After downloading, the installer opens automatically. Click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions. Give yourself at list 3 hours for the upgrade to complete. You might find it easiest to begin installation in the evening so that it can complete overnight, if needed. If the installer asks for permission to install a helper tool, enter the administrator name and password that you use to log in to your Mac, then click Add Helper.
New redesigned Mac Pro is coming this fall
Since 2013, Apple has let the old Mac Pro design completely stagnant. It was small and beautiful and run whisper quiet (nothing short a piece of art that demanded placement on your desk) but the tight integration made it almost impossible to upgrade. The company finally admitted earlier last year that its 2013 model approach hasn’t been as upgradable as it had hoped, and is now in the process of completely rethinking its design and layout to make it a high-end, high-throughput desktop system, designed for Pros who need the ultimate performance.
Earlier this year Apple offered the first pic at the new Mac Pro. The new version features an entirely new design that’s modern, but also takes you back to the older Mac Pro model with the return of the cheese grater look. This new version uses a traditional tower style with an Apple flare. According to Apple the new Mac Pro has been redesigned with easy access to components and a stainless steel / aluminum case that includes handles for modularity. This new design also include optional wheels that can be added to make it easy to transport from one location to the other.
With a price tag starting around $6.000 (display sold separately), this machine is unquestionably designed for the professionals who demand the absolute best performance money can buy. The Apple XDR display will be available for purchase separately in the fall with a Price tag around $1.000. With full upgrade and top of the line specification the high end Mac Pro could cost you upwards of $20.000.
Mac Pro Specs
Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores
12 DIMM slots for up to 1.5 terabytes of 2933MHz ECC memory
8 X PCI expansion slots, four double-wide slots, three single side slots
2 X TB3 ports, audio jack, two USB A ports, two 10Gb Ethernet ports
300 watts of power, runs fully unconstrained
Apple also built a brand new card called Afterburner for video editing, 6 billion pixels per second. 3 streams of 8K, 12 streams of 4K. Apple will manufacture the new Mac Pro in Austin Texas. Production on the machine will begin soon at the same facility where the old Mac Pro was manufactured.
