Catalina, iOS 13, the New Mac Pro and All the Good Stuff From WWDC

Apple gave us a look at the next versions of its operating system, including macOS Catalina, iOS 13, and tvOS and watchOS. We also learned about the new Mac Pro desktop computer coming in the fall. There was lots to like in the announcements, including dark mode for iOS, iCloud folder sharing, the birth of iPad OS, the ability to use an iPad as a second screen for your Mac, and much more.

    Thank you Gary. Exactly what I needed was a clear summary such as yours, it helps cut down on some confusion, Pete

    Nice features coming up, any word yet on what hardware (Mac’s, iPad’s, iPhone’s and Apple TV’s) will run these new OS’s?

    Larry: Yes. Apple has published it all on the site. Just go to the Apple site, look at the page that tells you about the OS, then there is a list of compatible devices.

    Good morning, Gary. Do you know what will happen to the relationship between autos and the iPod syncing feature? I only use iTunes so I can have my playlist and all my music in my truck. I don’t use cell phones, and will I have to pay the monthly fee to have the new app organize my purchased music as iTunes does now? Thank you.

    JR: I don’t see any change here. Not sure how you are using the iTunes app on your Mac somehow to communicate with your car? You’ll have playlists in the Music app, you’ll be able to sync to your iPad with the Finder as before. Your car doesn’t care about what is going on with your Mac’s apps.

    How will I back up my iMac without iTunes? A new program with Catalina?
    Thanks!

    Rob: You don’t use iTunes to back up your Mac. There’s no function for that. (You use Time Machine to back up your Mac, iTunes has nothing to do with it). Perhaps you mean back up your iPhone or iPad to your Mac? Starting in Catalina you can do that in the Finder. But most people back up their iPhone to iCloud now anyway.

    Hello Gary, I was wondering if my Ford truck will be able to play music from my iPod with the new music app, now that there won’t be iTunes. Will the truck recognize the new program.

    JR: This is a change in the apps on your Mac, not the iPod.

    Will the elimination of 32bit apps also be included with the new version of the Mac Os?

    Vignola: Macs with macOS Catalina won’t be able to run old 32-bit apps, yes. At this point developers and users have had many years to update.

    I have a Fujitsu Scan snap s1500m scanner that will not work with 64 bit OS. Is there a to keep using it or is there a workaround so I do not need a new scanner. My current scanner works perfectly.
