The Dashboard will officially become history with the release of macOS Catalina. The company decided to put an end to this feature, finally removing it from the system. It is noteworthy that the Dashboard was introduced in 2005, but the panel was updated only once – in 2011 with the release of OS X Lion. After that Apple for a long time forgotten about the existence of this option.
The first implementation of widgets
At the time of its release Dashboard was a early concept of widgets. On a separate screen in Mission Control was located with notes, weather, clock, calculator, and other custom programs. Application design was done in the popular at that time style skeuomorph, involving the imitation of real objects.
With the release of OS X Yosemite, the OS design has been seriously upgraded — replaced shadows and colourful icons came minimalism. The company has disabled the Dashboard, but to remove it completely is not. Users are still able to access this option using the keyboard shortcuts or you can create your own Mission Control.
Finally to say goodbye to Dashboard Apple macOS Catalina. Operating system there are no more signs indicating the presence of options. Maybe it’s for the best — the bar has long been popular with users, so as to replace Dashboard came modern widgets, which are located in the “notification Center”.
