While iOS 13 and watchOS 6 were released last week, followed by iPadOS 13.1 and tvOS 13 this week, we're still waiting for macOS Catalina. However, the Apple website suggests that macOS Catalina may launch right after Friday, October 4th.
First spotted by MacRumors, the Danish version of Apple's macOS Catalina website assumes that the Apple Arcade service will be available on October 4. This at first glance would mean that macOS Catalina will also launch on this date, since Apple Arcade is a feature of Catalina.
Danish Apple Arcade website teases "Exceptional gameplay. Find it on the App Store from October 4th. "The Apple Arcade will be available through the Mac App Store, as we first introduced last month.
It would be a little unusual, but not unprecedented, for Apple to release a new version of macOS on Friday. One option is for macOS Catalina and Apple Arcade to launch at different times, with the macOS update coming earlier this week and Apple Arcade coming on Friday.
Up until this leak, Apple has not provided specific information on when macOS Catalina will be released in a public place other than annoying on the fall date. Although the Danish Danish website may be incorrect, it does seem to be launching in early October, unlike later in the month.
Just this week, Apple released the developer's ninth beta and macOS Catalina's eighth public beta. The latest version of macOS includes new features like the TV app, new music and podcast apps, Apple Arcade and more. It also includes Mac Catalyst, which is Apple's technology that allows developers to deploy Mac iPad apps.
