    Apple's latest Mac operating system, macOS Catalina, will see a launch sometime in October, the company announced today following its iPhone-centric event.

    While iOS 13 and watchOS 6 will launch on Thursday, September 19, macOS Catalina will not be coming out at the same time.

    Apple has not provided details on when specifically macOS Catalina will launch in October, so it could come at any time during the month.

    Apple has in the past staggered the releases of its new software updates, so it's not too much of a surprise to see macOS Catalina launching at a later date.

    If Apple holds an October event that sees the launch of new Macs, such as the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro, macOS Catalina could be timed with the release of the new machines.

    I think we will have another event in October and Catalina will launch then.

    Good. Catalina betas right now are way too buggy, let the engineers take some more weeks to address the issues instead of rushing a release.

    I'm so scared of this release. Already got burned by the beta.

    I hope Apple support is prepared for all the customers 'upgrading' their reminders app and have it stop syncing with their Mac..

    This is exactly what I was thinking. I wonder how they are going to handle that?

    Even the fully upgraded version works poorly. Really disappointing quality.

    I'm surprised they're even still working on it.

    But seriously though, I was hoping sooner rather than later. I'm wanting to finally get into iOS/iPadOS/watchOS/macOS development (I've done app design and some limited development patching things) and a big motivating factor for that is Swift UI and the ability to more easily develop apps for all platforms at once. Makes it easier and more worth it for a someone like me who is more of a designer who does web development to get into app development and to make more money across platforms while spending less time doing maintenance. I'm excited to try it out but don't want to install buggy beta software on my iMac which I use to make money.

    if it's so buggy this late into the beta, it's gonna be buggy until the .4 release, recent example? Yosemite, High Sierra. Might as well wait for 10.16 at this point

    So the new Xcode - to make iOS 13 level apps - will run on Mojave?

    I'm in no hurry to upgrade to Catalina. First of all, it's got zero features I care about. And second, Mojave has been rock solid. I'm not ready to abandon it just yet. Definitely gonna wait for a .2 or .3 release before moving on.

    I must have been really lucky, I had no issues with the beta. Good to see they're taking more time though.

    I’ll keep my 2012 Mac mini on Mojave for the long haul because I need 32 bit support. Hope Apple provides security updates for Mojave for many years to come. I also hope that whatever Apple has in store for us to migrate to from iTunes doesn’t suck.

    I'm in Sierra 12.6, the latest best version I could find reliable of OSX for my 15" 2012 rMBP, quite old 4200USD machine, but even my latest Macs before this one were always update to the latest software (OS X was evolving fast) High Sierra made my system laggy and I had to downgrade, anyway, there isn't a feature I need since 3 years ago, Airdrop or other cool features make me upgrade in the past, but now what? "black" mode?, unsubscribe Mail list?...

    I was used to update as soon as new OS came out, but it's been a long time I can't find any new improvement worth the risk to have a slower machine...

    Catalina promises to be the most boring of last years upgrades, while there are a thousand things you can fix or improve in OSX, in terms of GUI, usability, work experience...

    let see what means Catalyst in the future, this could be something or a big bluf, depends on developers and users

    Music app is still a disaster. This has been one worrying year for software quality after last years stellar QA focus.

    I don't recall Apple having "release" events for OS releases after "launching" them at WWDC in the past.

    Nor do they need Catalina to be released before they release the Mac Pro - just needs a point release of Mojave with any new drivers. Especially in the case of a "serious callers only" product like the MP: anybody with a serious pays-the-rent income stream that depends on their Mac who switches to a new OS on day one is... courageous. Plenty of applications aren't going to support Catalina on day one.

    I'm not 100% but I'm 99% sure they announced Mac Pro would have Catalina which usually means it will ship with it pre-installed.
