DJs face crisis with the official end of iTunes

Catalina island Apple Is Officially Killing iTunes, & It’s A Big Issue For DJs
Julia Gonzales | 09 October, 2019, 23:26

Along with the death of iTunes, another major feature in macOS Catalina is the fact that it can run iPad apps for the first time. The problem? Aside from the typical headaches plaguing users attempting to install OS upgrades, Catalina is more than your average software update - it fundamentally changes what apps you can (or, more accurately, can't) use on your Mac. A short list of games are receiving 64-bit updates, while many more are being left behind. This means UIKit developers will only have to maintain a single codebase to create apps that work on iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

MacGamerHQ is keeping a complete list of every 32-bit Mac game that's on the potential chopping block, and what it's update status is, or lack thereof.

However, none of this should come as a surprise to anyone who's been paying attention to Apple's gradual movement away from 32-bit. If you're a user of Algoriddim's djay or Virtual DJ, you're in luck: these apps are both compatible with Catalina.

Check out my full macOS Catalina review on sister site Laptop Mag and our guide for how to download macOS Catalina to learn more. Sidecar runs on a wired connection so users can charge their iPad as they work, or on a wireless connection for greater mobility, using everything from illustration apps and video editing apps to 3D apps, like Photoshop, Illustrator and ZBrush. Even though the new operating system has been in beta for months, updating your Mac today will lead to a few annoying issues that you might want to wait for Adobe to iron out. Sound off in the comments. Hopefully, those apps now have 64-bit versions, as Apple has been warning developers about this impending change for a while. Before you upgrade, here's how to find out if you've got any 32-bit only apps on your Mac now.

With the world becoming more conscious of security in times of data breaches, macOS Catalina enhances protections for Mac. If you're a Mac user, you probably have an Apple ID. Users will now be able to back up and sync their devices via Finder where a similar UI has been transposed. You also get new filters, to see reminders due today, those scheduled for the future and those flagged as a high priority.

I've never really loved Apple's own podcasts app, but this latest version blew my mind with its new search tricks.

Built with Siri and machine learning, this new feature works so well it found the times my name was mentioned on The Polygon Show by my friend Simone de Rochefort.
