  • A MacRumors report claims that Apple has been requiring new software distributed with a Developer ID outside of the Mac App Store
  • Software notarized before February 3 will continue to run by default on macOS Catalina

As per a report by IANS, Apple has announced that developers who create Mac apps outside the Mac App Store will now need to submit them for the notarisation process starting on February 3, 2020.

 Review the developer log for warnings

“If you have not yet done so, upload your software to the notary service and review the developer log for warnings. These warnings will become errors starting February 3 and must be fixed in order to have your software notarized. Software notarized before February 3 will continue to run by default on macOS Catalina,” the company said in a statement.

The report mentioned that earlier this year, the company announced that all Mac software distributed outside the Mac App Store must be notarized by Apple in order to run by default on macOS Catalina.

A MacRumors report claims that Apple has been requiring new software distributed with a Developer ID outside of the Mac App Store to be notarized in order to run since macOS Mojave 10.14.5.
