Apple just released iOS 13.2, which brought a number of updates to the iPhone, the most notable being Deep Fusion. However, lost somewhere in the hype were various other features like new emoji and Siri Privacy control. Now, Apple has released an update for macOS Catalina, version 10.51.1, a fairly notable update for the company’s non-mobile operating system.

The new update brings some of the same features that were introduced in iOS 13.2 to the Mac.
