Apple Seeds First Beta of Upcoming macOS Catalina 10.15.2 Update

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Catalina 10.15.2 update to developers, one week after releasing the macOS Catalina 10.15.1 update.

The new ‌‌macOS Catalina‌‌ beta can be downloaded using the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after installing the proper software from the Developer Center.


There's no word yet on what improvements the second update to ‌macOS Catalina‌ will include, but it most likely focuses on performance improvements, security updates, and fixes for bugs that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS 10.15.1 update.

When we find out what's new in the ‌macOS Catalina‌ 10.15.2 beta, we'll update this article.

‌‌macOS Catalina‌‌ is a major update that eliminates iTunes in favor of new Music, Podcasts, and TV apps, nixes support for 32-bit apps, adds a new Find My app, brings a new Photos interface, and includes multiple privacy enhancements and other app refinements.

For full details on what's new in ‌‌macOS Catalina‌‌, make sure to check out our macOS Catalina roundup.

Calling all guinea pigs, report for duty!

It’s for DEVELOPERS, the “guinea pig” version comes out after.

I am sure someone on the Beta programme has reported it. when it gets fixed is anyone's guess.


And if someone didn’t? Then it’ll just stay there longer. If there is a bug, don’t rely on “someone” to have reported it already. Report it yourself. Also multiple reports will stand out more to Apple, I’d assume, compared to just one.

When I installed the update, my MacBook Pro's bezels shrunk and a physical Esc key separated from the touch bar. Good job Apple

Nope! No way! I’m still not touching it! I’ll probably skip 10.15 altogether and eventually go to 10.16, as long as that OS doesn’t arrive as a smoldering mess.

com'on man ... join the rest of us dumbasses and upgrade

I am still rocking Mojave 10.14.6. (being pestered by unresolved resource wakeup diagnostics logged freely under /library/logs/DiagnosticReports)

But given the Catalina reviews, this version lurks worse.
[No wonder that Catalina's Desktop Picture appears (to me) to mimic a middle finger pointed at us.]

Will wait to *.3 or even *.4.
But that is just me.


Mojave has been a great for me since 10.14.0, but not touching Catalina for a few months yet.
