Step 2. Before installing macOS 10.15 Catalina, make sure these are done.

  1. Make a Backup: Before performing the installing macOS 10.15 Catalina, please take a backup of your computer on an external hard drive. Who knows what will be happening while performing the Installations. Even a Blu-ray CD can do the job, just make sure you have to the backup. The backup includes on system files or the personal data, What I mean here, you must have your system backup, it is the certainty if it is gone, then the licensee of the OS is gone too.
  2. Keep in mind your Apple ID and Password: A colleague of mine had an iPhone 7, he restored the iPhone, he also forgot it’s Apple ID and Password. So, he went to the company to fix the problem, this could happen with you too if you forget the Apple ID and its password.
  3. Make 20GB Free storage for the macOS Catalina: The recommended amount of storage for the macOS Catalina is 20 GB. Well, downloading the macOS 10.15 Catalina from the App store is 6.5 and with installation, it can take up to 20 GB Storage. So, make sure you have 20 GB of free storage.
  4. Update all the Apps: The macOS 10.15 Catalina will remove the 32-bit support, so you have to make sure to update them or consider updating to Catalina. The below statement was Jennifer who appointed it on the Microsoft community.

I purchased Microsoft Office 2011 along with the purchase of my MacBook.  I did an upgrade yesterday only to find that Office 2011 will only run on 32 bit.  The upgrade now requires Microsoft Office to run on 64bit.  I read in many places that Microsoft has no intentions of supporting this upgrade so therefore, I can no longer safely use this software, that I purchased, on my mac.  Microsoft is forcing me to purchase something I have already purchased earlier.

To check for the 32-bit apps, go to the Apple menu> system report, then scroll down to the software section, then select an application. Click on the apps and find ready the details of the App. In front of the 64-bit (Intel), if yes is written it means it 64 bit if not it mean it is 32-bit.
