Apple released the macOS 10.15 Catalina Public Beta 3 on July 3, 3019. You would be wondering how the MacOS is named. The Operating system is named after Santa Catalina Island, which is located in southern California. The complete version of this update will be released for the public to download in September, and will hopefully provide better enactment.
Apple is trying out a new sign-in process for iCloud on the web in MacOS Catalina Beta Version. Now you can sign-in to your iCloud using your Face ID, but this is only eligible for devices that already use face ID to log-in to the device.
How to try FaceID iCloud log-in with the MacOS Catalina Beta
In order to try this new feature released by Apple, head over to the icloud.com if you’re already running the beta version, your device will redirect you to the beta.icloud.com. If you’ve not downloaded the MacOS Catalina Beta version, type beta.icloud.com in the address bar. You would not need the two-factor authentication to try out this new feature. Remember this is only available for the devices which are equipped with Face ID log-in.
How to download the MacOS 10.15 Catalina Public Beta 3
To download the new MacOS Beta version, follow the steps given below:
NOTE: Back-up your MacBook before you download the beta version on your device. This is necessary because you might want to restore the previous MacOS version. In order to protect your data, use iTunes or iCloud to backup.
- Go to beta.apple.com in your browser.
- Sign-in with Apple ID and password
- Follow the instructions under the MacOS section to get the Beta version for your MacBook.
We would recommend you to wait for the full release of the MacOS Catalina because beta releases are full of bugs and you might get frustrated because of that.
