Don't Update to macOS Catalina Yet if You Use Photoshop or Lightroom

Don't Update to macOS Catalina Yet if You Use Photoshop or Lightroom

The new macOS Catalina is officially here, and it comes with some serious changes to Apple's ecosystem that everyone from diehards to casual users may want to be aware of. It's a small design change that makes a lot of sense on the Mac, where screens are usually larger than the iPad. This will enable users to get insights on how much time they're spending with apps and websites.

This news contradicts Apple's earlier assertion that there would be a way to manually export the XML file from the new Music app, though Catalina's launch yesterday now proves this isn't the case at all.

With the world becoming more conscious of security in times of data breaches, macOS Catalina enhances protections for Mac. 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. Users can access their Apple Arcade accounts from Macs, iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches, and Apple TVs. Apple has been angling towards a 64-bit ecosystem since OS X Tiger all the way back in 2005, and Apple has been advising users that they should update their 32-bit programs since 2016's OS Sierra. As you'd expect, folders are user-defined sets of feeds. The app also makes extensive use of keyboard shortcuts and allows for links to be opened in your default browser in the background, something that far too few AppKit apps offer.

Oh, and there's one iTunes feature that didn't get moved to those other apps: device management.

The app hasn't been updated in years but it continued to work with each and every macOS update. Apple Music fails to incorporate XML file support, an organizational component, which originally made it simple for DJs to transfer data from iTunes to applications such as Rekordbox and Traktor.

According to Apple if a customer is reliant on XML files for DJing, they should avoid updating and continue using their preferred software on macOS Mojave until developers push out fixes (some, like Serato, are already trying out new beta versions tailored for Catalina).

Dashboard, a prominent feature that was first introduced with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger in 2005, is now finally being dragged into the trash can. While Mac updates typically carry important security patches and other functionality, it's simply not worth it if it impairs your ability to work.
