macOS Catalina is less buggy than iOS 13 but has a different problem

This year might end up being unkind to Apple's software if the past few days continue their trend. iOS 13, one of Apple's most monumental releases for its mobile platform, has had three emergency releases in just a week to quickly patch up critical security bugs. macOS Catalina, an equally big release, was pushed back later than initially promised. The latest macOS update has finally rolled out and, fortunately, it isn't as bug-ridden as iOS 13. Unfortunately, it has its own share of controversy that is leaving some users and developers out in the cold.

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

iOS 13 already rolled out but, unlike the betas and Apple's announcements, it launched alone. The much-hyped iPadOS came a few days later but the matching macOS Catalina, a.k.a. macOS 10.15 was still nowhere in sight. Apple said it would start rolling out some time in October but didn't give a date users could pin on their calendar. But thanks to Apple's own Danish site, early adopters can look forward to next week to start their journey towards the latest macOS release.

Apple removes Zoom-based software from Macs via a silent update

Apple removes Zoom-based software from Macs via a silent update

Apple is known for running a tight ship on iOS but things aren't that clear-cut on macOS. While the company does scrutinize the apps that go through its App Store, it has less control over those that are sourced elsewhere and some do get through the restrictions it places on macOS. One of the most recent high-profile cases involves the popular Zoom video conferencing software. Now Apple itself is taking action by silently removing other software that makes use of the same flawed Zoom technologies on Mac.

Underneath, it used a version of the OpenID Connect specification to make secure logins possible. But according to the OpenID Foundation, its implementation might ironically leave users exposed to hacking attacks.
