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.

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.

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.
