MacOS Catalina is out with the developer version, and many of the developers are testing it. With each passing day with the Developer version, the experts are finding new additions to the upcoming OS. With the new OS, Apple allows the users to use the iOS 12 or iOS 13 based devices as the trackpad and also to sign the documents using the same. The hassle of signing the important documents like exam forms, invoices and other things with the help of trackpad will be gone for good.
After the official release of MacOS Catalina for MacBooks and iMacs, the users can have the option to use the trackpad or any of the connected iOS devices to sign with a finger or an Apple pencil. There is no need to use the trackpad for gibberish signature or even scan a piece of paper with your signature on it. In the documents viewer, the users can go to the “Signature Management” option in the settings and click on “Create a Signature” and then either upload an image or choose from the supported device to sign on it. Once you click Next, the device will show the whiteboard to sign on and once complete, you can rearrange the signature on the document.
The devices running on iOS 12 are currently not supported for this feature, but the system recognizes them. Only the devices with iOS 13 have the pop-up for signatures whiteboard. Also, the users will have to keep their smartphone unlocked to get the signature pop-up on the screen. In the case of iPhones, the users have to use the finger, and in case of iPads, the users can use both fingers and Apple Pencil to sign. MacOS Catalina is in the developer phase so that this feature may get better in the coming days.
