<p><strong>Gregorio Zanon</strong> of <strong>DigiDNA </strong>discusses some of the changes to iPhone and iPad data management that have occurred in macOS and iOS 13, and how their product, <a href="http://imazing.com"><strong>iMazing</strong></a>, can help fill in the gaps. Greg explains how Apple’s binary approach to syncing is improved upon by iMazing, what you can out of your device that Apple won’t let you, and the features that their customers are using most.</p>

<p><strong>Jeff Gamet </strong>of <a href="http://smilesoftware.com"><strong>Smile</strong></a> is back in a wide-ranging conversation that runs from Smile’s Catalina preparations to why security settings will get better over time. Along the way are discussions of why private cloud servers are often better for developers, the sometimes-unseen benefits of subscription software, and one of the surprising ways he stays organized during travel.</p>

<p>The advent of macOS Catalina brought major changes to the apps that manage and play various types of media. <strong>Kirk McElhearn</strong> helps us navigate those changes in his new <a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/media-apps/"><strong>Take Control of macOS Media Apps</strong></a>. iTunes is gone, and in  its place are separate apps Music, Podcasts, TV, and Books, with all syncing now handled through the Finder. Kirk walks us through each of these to help us make the transition and know what app does what.</p>

<p>Is the thought of upgrading to macOS Catalina uncomfortable? Two utilities out there can help ease the preparation process. <a href="https://www.corecode.io/macupdater/"><strong>MacUpdater</strong></a> from CoreCode will help you determine if your installed apps are up to date, and if not, can assist in getting them current. <strong><a href="https://www.stclairsoft.com/Go64/index.html">Go64</a> </strong>from St. Clair Software scans your installed apps, identifies what are and aren’t 64-bit apps, and can even help you plan the budget you will need to get ready for Catalina. See what they can do and how they do it.</p>
