macOS Catatina 10.15.5 update is available with Battery Health Management and more

2 days 22 hours ago

Apple on Tuesday released macOS Catalina 10.15.5, an update to the Mac operating system. The marquee feature of this update is Battery Health Management, which was revealed to developers back in April. This feature adjusts the MacBook’s battery charging so that it doesn’t reach full capacity, thereby extending the overall life of the battery. (Charging lithium-based batteries to 100 percent can cause wear and tear, which shortens battery life.)

The update also includes a new option in FaceTime to turn off the user zoom during group FaceTime conferences. Apple introduced this option in iOS when it released the iOS 13.5 update.
