        If all goes well, I expect to upgrade from Mojave to Catalina in late July or early August, before the next version of macOS comes out, sometime in September or October. By then, Catalina would have had several upgrades already, smoothing out most of its many wrinkles — or so I hope.

        I’m upgrading end of April. I’m at the point where I finally need to make the upgrade soon. My final two 32 Bit apps should be 64 Bit by then. If not, I can run them on my old iMac temporarily.

        I just installed the security update for Mojave (2020-002) and the Safari 13.1 update.

        After downloading the installation/restarts only took about 15 minutes. The only thing out of the ordinary was that both updates seemed to be in one package. Usually I have the option of installing the Mojave security update and the Safari update separately, but not this time. Anyway, everything seems normal.

        I did the same thing as DrBonzo, two days ago and also noticed that both Safari and Mojave were updated one after the other with no need for a separate “manual” install. No unpleasant side effects noticed after the updating was completed; now everything seems to be working normally. But the update of Mojave hanged for more than fifteen minutes in “Estimating time remaining” with no estimate forthcoming, until I was wondering what to do and was about to start searching for clues about that on the Web with my Win 7 PC. But then the stalled process started to move forward once more and, some minutes later, it was successfully completed. With a big sigh of relief.

        I have updated two of my Macs to Catalina 10.15.4 without problems.
        The download is a under 3GB and in both cases proceeded normally.

        My iOS stuff is older. Will try 12.4.6 when time allows.
        I have usually used iTunes on my Mac to backup and do the update. Will see how it goes w/o iTunes this time.

        I did all the updates this weekend (still on Mojave on my iMac Pro). So far so good. On upgrading iOS stuff without iTunes, it should work in Finder in Catalina same way as it did in iTunes from Mojave and before, although I haven’t tested it yet.
