MacOS Catalina First Look: From Sidecar to Project Catalyst

  • Published: 05 June 2019
  • After Apple wrapped its WWDC keynote today, the developers went to coding sessions and the press, well, mostly showed themselves out. As it happens, we later had a chance to see most of the new software in action in private demos. First, an important caveat: These demos were guided and hands-off, meaning we haven't yet had a chance to install the software on our own devices and use it as our daily driver. But, until these platforms launch in beta this summer, it's helpful to have had a chance to see these OSes in use, outside of what turned out to be a packed, fast-moving keynote. When Apple is demoing software on stage, you can easily blink and miss a mention of a new feature, or totally miss how it actually works.

    A great new feature would be fixing the kernel task 300% that hogs all the CPU

                      Why do you keep saying it seems like an afterthought? Just because it came after the Mac Pro? Lol if they’d put the Mac Pro afterwards you’d probably say that was an afterthought.

                          Because apple is very slow in the processing years so I hope apple will make Macs with touch screen in the next 5 years

                                                  Ana Salazar it’s probably that it’s still a good thing you have it! A Luna Display allows you to access your Mac *from the iPad*. Meaning you don’t necessarily have to touch your computer to do it. SideCar allows your Mac to share its screen with the iPad. So you’d still have to initiate actions *from the Mac*, making the iPad more or less a glorified external monitor.

                                                    Not everything presented later is an "after-thought"! Let me know if you can do it at the same time...

I’m not sure if they’ll be releasing it on Mac before Catalina is out, though. But if you buy it on iPad now, the Mac version will be a free download.

Their os isn't built to be touch friendly like windows 10 is so in order for apple to somehow catch up to 2019 they gotta let us connect he iPad so we can touch and write on stuff 😂 y'all see this right?

Using say photoshop on windows with a styles stills is not a touch OS. Apple is not catching up they are leading the way as they always have done. lol 😂

As a artist this was implemented because of apps like Astropad that turns your iPad into an Wacom tablet. We’ve actually been begging for this since the first iPad. Has absolutely nothing to do with windows or touch PCs. I was just about to buy a cintiq 16 but now I’m just going to upgrade my iPad to a pro.

They should put braille on each key. They should have a braille dot screen which pops up as I am scrolling the web so I can touch and experience the web the same way that u do. They should also make it cheap so I can afford it.

Apple just basically copied their software and will kill the company. It’s a standard apple move I know but still pretty cruel!

If Apple wanted to copy a feature I’ve had access to from this 3rd party app they should’ve just bought them. Whatever the cost it would’ve been and it probably wouldn’t be crazy is like a cup of coffee for Apple. I understand in general adding features to the base platform can be good for consumers but to simply walk over a long term partner to do it is not right. Sure if Duet charged some outlandish fee or had only been around for a year I’d be less aggrieved on their behalf but neither is true. Their prices were fair with tons of free updates and they’ve been around for I think at least 5 years. That’s my take anyway. Apple could’ve done right by the ISV and given the consumer the feature for free but they chose to ignore their existence even though they made the Apple product better for many years before Apple “invented” side car. PS. Don’t forget that Apple happily took 30% of their revenue for years.

But we still has to see it in real life everything works perfectly when they do the demos. Coming from someone who is a quadriplegic I am telling you the only way I am able to use the tablet with minimal specs Is a Windows 10 tablet simply because of the speech recognition. Of course on the laptop I use Dragon naturally speaking. And I agree Microsoft should give it an update

Sidecar will be apart of the actual operating system and will be better optimised for the hardware it's making use of. There was no real elegant solution for using your iPad as a secondary display, until Apple themselves would release something like sidecar. Astropad and Duet do the best they can with the tools they have available to developers. But ultimately, something like this just can't run properly as an application. Companies that depend on a bigger company not implementing something as their business model are inevitably going to get closed at some point.

We still don’t know how sidecar will run or if it will out perform Duet Display or any secondary screen devices. It’s all kinda in the air and I still can’t believe it took apple this long to make this option available (it took 7 years). Long live Duet display

I keep getting the air that the iPad could not be updated because the firmware it’s not compatible. I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong I downloaded everything from my developer portal. iOS 13 installed easily on my Max.

And personally the most feature I want is being able to run as homekit hub. It doesn’t make sense thst even ipad can do that but a desktop mac can’t. But apple never make sense since steve jobs gone.
