#1485: Catalina ships, Picture in Picture in tvOS 13, connecting to Wi-Fi in iOS 13, explaining Apple passcode requests

Apple shipped macOS 10.15 Catalina today, so if you’re an early adopter with a test Mac available, have fun installing it. For most people, though, Adam Engst recommends delaying the upgrade for a while. If you’re a sports fan who switches between games often, Josh Centers explains how you can use the new Picture in Picture feature in tvOS 13. For those who need to connect to new Wi-Fi networks frequently, Glenn Fleishman documents iOS 13’s new, easier method and then, for completeness, runs through the three other ways of connecting to Wi-Fi networks in iOS. Finally, if you’ve wondered why your Apple devices sometimes ask for the passcode or password of another of your devices, Glenn has the explanation. Notable Mac app releases this week include Pages 8.2, Numbers 6.2, and Keynote 9.2, Retrospect 16.5, Nisus Writer Express 4.0, Nisus Writer Pro 3.0.4, PDFpen and PDFpenPro 11.1.1, DEVONthink 3.0.1, Ulysses 18, KeyCue 9.5, Typinator 8.2, and PopChar X 8.7.
