Happy Labor Day to our American readers! Apple last week released iOS 13.7, building in support for the joint Apple-Google COVID-19 exposure notification technology—but remember, you can enable it only if your state or country provides a compatible app. The company also released iPadOS 13.7 with unspecified bug fixes. We’re heading into Apple’s big upgrade season, and our friends at Take Control have new books to help you with macOS 11 Big Sur, iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, and Zoom. To wrap up the issue, Adam uses his recent Mac migration experience to start making a list of gotchas: things you may have to fix even after migrating “everything” from your previous Mac. Notable Mac app releases this week include LaunchBar 6.13, TechTool Pro 13, Bookends 13.4.5, and Zoom 5.2.2.
Apple has released iOS 13.7 with a new built-in COVID-19 exposure notification system that it co-developed with Google. The company also pushed out iPadOS 13.7 with unspecified bug fixes.

When you buy a new Mac and migrate your old Mac’s files to it during setup, Setup Assistant moves over numerous settings and configurations.
