Is it worth upgrading to Catalina?
There’s a host of significant new accessibility features. And perhaps the biggest change: 32-bit legacy apps are no longer supported, which could be disruptive if you rely on older software. As with all recent versions of macOS, Catalina is a free upgrade — so it’s not a question of value.
When should I upgrade my Mac?
When should you upgrade? Here’s what we recommend for macOS 10.13 High Sierra, iOS 11, watchOS 4, and tvOS 11. macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Because major changes to your Mac, such as High Sierra’s switch to APFS, can wreak havoc if things go wrong, we recommend waiting a few weeks or even months until 10.13.
Is it safe to upgrade to macOS Catalina?
Do not upgrade to Catalina until we give you the go-ahead.
We know you want to play with all the new features but Catalina even more so than previous major macOS upgrades is not something you should install right away.
Is the new iMac worth it?
Today’s models support gorgeous wide color gamuts at high resolution. They’re great devices for that use. The iMac is also a pretty good value, because it comes with that high-resolution screen. If you wanted to configure a Mac mini and a 4K iMac with the same specs, you’d only have $400 left over to buy a 4K display.
