Joe Kissell has been digging into the best way to upgrade to the next generation of macOS, and shares some of his findings from his new book, Take Control of Upgrading to Catalina. What makes this upgrade different is the transition to only 64-bit apps. Some strategies on how to perform the upgrade effectively, how to find which of your apps can’t make the transition, and the things you should do before upgrading are just a few of the topics covered in this discussion. There are also some potential challenges after the upgrade, including security options that you should be aware of. Find out what you need to know from Joe.

MacVoices #19209: St. Clair Software's Jon Gotow on Getting Apps Ready for macOS Catalina

Jon Gotow of St. Clair Software takes a break from coding to discuss the coming transition to the 64-bit macOS Catalina, and what it means for you. What it takes to transition apps from 32-bit to 64-bit, why some apps and developers won’t or can’t make the transition, and what you should expect from developers are all part of our first look at this change that is going to affect everyone who uses a Mac. Jon gives us a status report on all of his apps, shares his thinking on charging for the upgrades, and offers some advice on how to communicate with those who make your mission-critical apps.
