macOS Catalina: The Missing Manual

Book Description

Apple gives macOS new features and improvements right on your desktop and under the hood with Catalina—aka OS X 10.15. With this updated guide, you’ll learn how to use your iPad as a second screen, work with iPad apps on your Mac, and use Screen Time on your Mac. This new edition of the #1 bestselling Mac book shows you how to use the revamped apps for Music, Podcasts, and TV.

Loaded with illustrations, step-by-step instructions, tips, and tricks, this book from David Pogue—Missing Manual series creator, New York Times columnist, and Emmy-winning tech correspondent for CNBC, CBS, and NPR—covers everything Catalina has to offer with lots of humor and technical insight.
