Catalina is LIVE...
plus iPhone Photo Apps & Cyberflashing 

Hi Mr Mac newsletter subscribers!

macOS CATALINA has arrived. This major update was a couple of days later than expected but is now available for your computer to upgrade. (click here to see which computers are eligible)

I covered a lot of detail about this major Operating System release in a previous blog post, so for anyone wanting more info please check here.

One of the main elements of this release is the breaking up of iTunes into three seperate apps - which I believe will greatly streamline the way we interact with different kinds of media, i.e. Music, Movies and Podcasts.

I am just about to apply the Catalina update and will keep you all posted on the experience warts and all - the good, the bad & the ugly! 

iPhone Photography tips

I found a great article showing ten excellent iPhone photography tips.

Used carefully, the iPhone can be used to take extraordinary shots.

It's great to know that you can take professional-looking shots just with your iPhone, especially if it's a newer model.

Finally, a word of warning to Parents... Cyber-Flashing Danger

Cyber-Flashing via AirDrop is an awful thing that can happen to anyone but, most worryingly, our children - so this needs to be outed as a potential issue.

This article from SMH details the circumstances of a 16 year old girl who had disturbing images 'AirDropped' to her device without her knowledge.

It's important that parents make sure their kid's devices have the correct settings.

It can be very hard for kids to 'un-see' images once they pop up.

The key message from this article is to make sure that our children have the correct AirDrop settings on their device to avoid unrequested communications.

In a nutshell, AirDrop should be set to 'Contacts Only' rather than 'Everyone'.

Apparently, the girl had "never been told anything" by an adult about the dangers posed by an open AirDrop connection.
