Along with iOS 13.3, iPadOS 13.3, HomePod OS 13.3, tvOS 13.3, and watchOS 6.1.1 updates, Apple has also released the stable build of macOS Catalina 10.15.2. The update brings bug fixes, performance improvements, and refinements to a few stock apps. Let’s check out what’s new with the macOS Catalina 10.15.2 update.
The software update for Macs passed through four beta version releases before it was rolled out to the public. While it does not bring anything major in terms of features, the update certainly offers refinements to stock apps that should make the user experience more seamless.
The Apple News app now has a new layout for Apple News+ stories from publishers like The Wall Street Journal. The iTunes Remote on iOS and iPadOS running devices can now control Music and TV apps on Macs.
The Mail app bug, which was displaying a blank window when opening the preferences section, has now been fixed. According to the official changelog, the new update also fixes a bug in the previous version of macOS that prevented using the undo feature from retrieving a deleted email.
In the Music app, the column browser view has been restored for managing the music library. The issue of album art not being displayed has been fixed. An occasional resetting of equalizer has been fixed as well.
Apple has also resolved a bug which led to some AVI and MP4 video files being displayed as unsupported in the Photos app. The bug which prevented new folders from appearing in the Albums section has been fixed. Manually sorted images in an album were being printed and exported out of order in the previous version of macOS, and the bug has now been fixed by Apple.
The Stocks app in macOS Catalina 10.15.2 now showcases ‘Breaking’ and ‘Developing’ labels for Top Stories. Plus, the app also links to related stories by the same publication at the end of an article.
