    I myself do not really see my need for SideCar feature for now. I even wonder why my Late 2015 21.5 iMac 4k is not supported but the Late 2015 27inch iMac is supported. (n)

    actually time estimate on mine says 16 hrs!!! I stopped it first and will just try again later. It’s an 8.09 gb download on an early 2016 MacBook.

    Update took 1 hour give or take 10 mins. due to the separate volume of mac os catalina and your own data, some files are relocated and there's a shortcut (symlink I think) of a folder named Relocated Items in your desktop.

    P.S. Sidecar works great! it's just laggy in my office wifi (802.11n 2.4ghz) but ultrasmooth using a wired connection.

    Quick on mine. Could be that the CDN nearest you doesn't have Catalina cached yet. They'll keep up eventually though.

    Pretty pumped on trying out Sidecar as well. :D

    The Sidecar via Airplay between the MBP and the iPad Pro is nifty! :D

    First annoying bug(?) spotted: When my MBP sleeps and I try to wake it up using via Touch ID button, nothing happens. I have to press the Touch ID(/power key) button for it to wake. Pre-Catalina, just touching the Touch ID is enough.

    After you're done downloading, don't install yet. Copy the 'Install macOS Catalina' installer in Applications to an external hard drive for safekeeping. You can just copy that to another computer's Applications folder and run it from there. You can also create a USB installer to boot from if you need to upgrade lots of Macs.

    Too late, I didn't know one could do this. Thank you, for future reference! :)

    Sidecar is awesome. There is no lag or drop in the performance using the iPad as a monitor. It feels like having an external monitor.

    Mines MacBook air 2015. My Microsoft version is 32bit so does that mean it won't run on the Catalina? So I have to get a new microsoft version and if ever will my old files be still intact? The file is also too big for my MacBook to download. Thanks!

    Display preferences then drag the white bar. Tutorial under "How to change which screen shows the Menu bar and desktop icons in Sidecar in iPadOS 13 and macOS Catalina" if you need more in-depth instructions. :)

    ----

    I took the plunge and updated. No issues so far. 2017 15 inch MBP. Really impressed with Sidecar. Was a huge Duet user, and I also have an Asus Zenscreen. The convenience-to-performance ratio is off the charts. I'm amazed at how sharp and lag-free the **wireless** experience is. Haven't even tried plugging in my IPP at this point.

    May just sell both my Zenscreen and 10.5 IPP, then upgrade to a 12.9 inch. o_O
