Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Catalina 10.15.2 update to developers, one week after releasing the second beta and three weeks after the launch of macOS Catalina 10.15.1.
The new macOS Catalina beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the System Preferences app after installing the appropriate profile from the Developer Center.
We don't yet know what improvements the second update to macOS Catalina will bring, but it most likely focuses on performance improvements, security updates, and fixes for bugs that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS Catalina 10.15.1 update.
We didn't find any major new changes worth noting in the first two betas, but we'll update this article should anything notable be found in the third beta.
macOS Catalina is a major update that does away with iTunes in favor of new Music, Podcasts, and TV apps. It also 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 example, Dell or Lenovo do not force you to install Windows 10 November 2019 Update, you stick with May release if you want.
With Apple - you can't downgrade on Macbook Pro 16... Or AirPods Pro, or any future products.
These features shouldn't be glued to OS, yep. They should be added as drivers like in Windows.
Need support for MacBook Pro 16 on Mojave? No problem, just install this official driver/update.
AirPods Pro do not work? Sure, buddy, install this official app to control it.
