        With the release of macOS Catalina, Apple has officially killed iTunes for good and replaced it with a standalone Music app. However, apart from listening to music, iTunes was also used for backing up iPhones and iPads. So, without iTunes, how does one back up their iPhone or iPad on a Mac that’s running Catalina?..

        The Apple page is light on detail about backup, or it’s not obvious. The iphonehacks article is much better.

        cheers, Paul

        It now works through the Finder. All the same functionality as iTunes, except it’s located in the Finder instead of iTunes.
