      macOS Catalina, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and HomePod all received updates this week. We’re tracking when to install them on this page.

      We’re also putting the final touches on the Mac and iPad switcher guide for Windows users. It’ll rollout as AskWoody AKB articles as well coming up.

      Nathan, I also received today Security Update 2020-001 for Mojave 10.14.6 and  installed it. I posted that some hours earlier in the  KP is taking care of:

      2000014: Ongoing List of Apple Operating System

      Nothing unusual to report, at least yet, other than the fact that the Mac is still working and I am typing this comment on its keyboard.

      Whether it is working altogether well or not, is too early to tell, of course.

        I meant to write above “in the thread that PK is taking care of”. Sorry, PK.

      High Sierra also has a new security update (2020-001). Safari gets an update to 13.0.5; it’s a separate update for High Sierra and Mojave, but included with the new security update to Catalina.

      Interesting way of naming the updates: with the full year followed, after the dash, by three places. Either this shows a desire to be unambiguous, with room for the number of the Day of the Year (DoY), from one through three hundred and sixty five — or else, ambitiously, from one to nine hundred and ninety nine updates per year. Given that the update was released in the second half of the first month, I am inclined to think that the second possibility must be the correct one.

        Two things:

        I am not receiving that update for Safari from Apple.

        When accessing with Waterfox the Apple site with notices of the upgrades using either PK’s link in AKB1000014, or as given by DrBonzo in his previous comment, I get what you can see in the attached picture:

      I am using FF Quantum at the moment and have, just now, tried using the same link with it, and this is what happened:

        Just out of curiosity, try it in Safari. I’d like to see Safari block the Mother ship! 🙂

          Trying now with Safari: it connects to the site without objections.

      After finally connecting with Safari to the Apple site both WF and FF were stopping me from doing while also giving some serious warnings about the safety of the site, I can see that there is another update for Mojave (No. 2020-002) and one for Safari itself, but neither is offered to me, at the moment, when I check Updates in System Preferences. Only Catalina shows up there as ready to install, something I am not planning to do for at least several more months.

      Last night on a MacBook Air running Mojave, I installed the Safari update 13.0.5 and the security update 2020-001. Everything went well. The 2020-001 update took a bit less than 25 minutes, but 10 of that was for just the download (1.61 GB).

      I’ve updated all of my devices. So far so good. One of the bugs on my Apple Watch was even resolved.

      Just finished updating my iPhone 8plus to 13.3.1 and everything looks good. It was about a 10 minute OTA install. iPad is currently updating and if there’s anything to report after it’s done I’ll post it here in the next few days. One of my main concerns is battery drain but I haven’t had any issues with that on iOS 13.

      Universal Purchase and App Store Categories

      Starting in March 2020, you’ll be able to distribute iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS versions of your app as a universal purchase, allowing customers to enjoy your app and in‑app purchases across platforms by purchasing only once. You can choose to create a new app for these platforms using a single app record in App Store Connect or add platforms to your existing app record. Get started by building and testing your apps using a single bundle ID with Xcode 11.4 beta….
