Back in June, Apple officially announced macOS 10.15 Catalina. There's also a new feature called Sidecar that will allow you to extend your Mac desktop onto your iPad as a second display. Additionally, it includes Catalyst, which lets developers build macOS versions of iPad apps.
The Music app will primarily be focused on streaming music through Apple Music, although users will retain their old library of whatever 2000s emo, electro-pop, or chillwave MP3s that they still have lying around. Those who sync their iPhones will now see it in the Finder. Apple Arcade has arrived, bringing exclusive games to your Mac. With Project Catalyst, developers will be able to port iPad apps to Mac by simply clicking a tickbox, with Xcode introducing MacOS-specific controls, like cursor and window controls into an iPad app's framework.
macOS 10.15 also offers some souped-up security features; Gatekeeper now checks all apps for security issues, all apps are required to get permission before accessing user documents, and the side button on the Apple Watch can now be used to approve security prompts. And a new Voice Control feature gives quadriplegics and other people with limited mobility granular control over the operating system.
Apple has signalled the end of its legendary music software iTunes, relegating its key components to individual apps in the latest macOS update.

There are also a few security updates, including the OS running on a "dedicated, read-only system volume" to keep it in isolation from other data, according to Apple. Adding to great entertainment on the Mac, Catalina also features all-new Mac versions of Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV apps. Netflix, for example, says that it will not bring its iPad app to the Mac. It didn't make it into the Monday release of MacOS Catalina, either. The new Podcasts app will provide one with access to over 700K podcasts from different genres. The company is scheduled to release the update today for Mac users to download.
Some other apps have been revamped as well. You can find him at your local pro wrestling events, and wondering why Apple made a decision to ditch its MagSafe power adapters.
