Fasten your seatbelts! Today’s WWDC keynote introduced us to macOS 10.15 Catalina, iOS 13 and iPadOS, and watchOS 6—read on for how these OS updates will shape your next year as an Apple user. The company also unveiled a beefy new Mac Pro and its companion Pro Display XDR, both due to ship later this year. But last week, Apple worked overtime to clear the decks, releasing iOS 12.3.1, updating the MacBook Pro and iPod touch, and launching a repair program to address the “Flexgate” problem in 2016 MacBook Pro models. Notable Mac app releases in the past two weeks include BusyCal 3.6.2 and BusyContacts 1.3.3, macOS Mojave 10.14.5 Supplemental Update for MacBook Pro (2018, 2019), Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.9, ChronoSync 4.9.3, DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta 2, SEE Finance 2.1.2, SpamSieve 2.9.36, RapidWeaver 8.2.1, Ulysses 16, GraphicConverter 10.7.1, TextExpander 6.5.1, SoundSource 4.1, 1Password 7.3, and AirPort Base Station Firmware Update.
