Whether it's work, creative pursuits or education, the tasks you carry out on your Mac are likely much more important than the ones on your iPhone or iPad. Save all your important documents to an external hard drive or the cloud. As you'd expect, folders are user-defined sets of feeds. But I recognized just one app in this collection, for the Rosetta Stone language learning service. We expect majority to arrive as a part of iOS 13.2, which is in the beta version for now.

So far, there are only a few Catalyst apps available in the Mac App Store, although many more are expected to be released in the coming days and weeks.

With its new desktop OS, released to all on Monday, Apple has got rid of its near two-decade-old iTunes software in favour of three separate apps: Apple Music, Apple TV and Podcasts. "These apps can access dramatically more memory, enable faster system performance, and take advantage of technologies that define today's Mac experience, such as Metal graphics acceleration", Apple says in a support page explaining the transition. This means UIKit developers will only have to maintain a single codebase to create apps that work on iPhones, iPads, and Macs. The folks behind OpenVPN, an app I rely on for my job, showed me its 64-bit version, and I'm glad I asked them for the help, as I couldn't find it on the company's site.

While the dozens of new features are compelling, you might want to hold off before downloading Catalina.

On Tuesday, BMW revealed the more practical performance machine that's related to the two-doors: the 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe . In June, execs touted the 2020 M8's prowess around the Nürburgring-Nordschliefe in coupe and convertible four.

Of course, some of this may all be a moot point with Apple Arcade now available for macOS Catalina beta users. For example, lire includes tooltips when you hover the pointer over the buttons in its toolbar. Because of this issue, Apple is warning artists to wait to update and to continue to use their preferred software until developers find solutions. The feature allows users to use their iPad as a secondary or extended display of their computer.

Apple's been busy, rolling out the new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, iPads, its new Apple Arcade gaming service, Apple Watch Series 5 smartwatches and Apple TV Plus.

According to Apple, porting an iPad app for the macOS is as easy as checking a box in Xcode (Apple's development environment for macOS) with the Project Catalyst. AppKit is the underlying framework for Mac apps, whereas UIKit is the framework for each iOS and Catalyst apps. Some users have also had to pay twice for apps.
