Unlike watchOS 6, macOS Catalina 10.15.1 is a slightly bigger update and not only brings AirPods Pro support for Mac, but also includes over 70 new or updated emojis as well as new Siri privacy settings, and support for HomeKit Secure Video and HomeKit enabled routers. Additionally, there are several bug and security fixes on board. You can find the complete changelog on Apple website.
