This past week at WWDC, Apple revealed an major update to MacOs, naming it Catalina.
This Catalina update will:
replace iTunes with Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV
allow your iPad act as a second monitor for your Mac
run iPad apps
Although this update release isn’t until the Fall season, Apple stated that Mac users can use the beta version of Catalina in July. Just sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program. Apple adds in the FAQ section of the program that, “since the public beta software has not yet been commercially released by Apple, it may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not function as well as commercially released software.” Make sure you have a backup of your files so that you don’t lose whatever is on your Mac drive.

Internet connection issues are one of the greatest tech nuisances, but thankfully there are plenty of reasons for it. Most reasons require little effort too. Here are just a few:
Checking your network settings are the initial ‘go to’ for your connecting concerns. Search for Network Status in the Start Menu.
Your Internet Service Provider (or ISP) is having problems, resulting in the ‘waiting game’ until they get resolved
Your router/modem needs to be reset
Computer needs to be reset
Software is misconfigured for internet entry
Windows includes a Network Troubleshooter to help diagnose and fix the problem. From Network Status, you’ll find it listed. It’ll then scan your computer to aid in treatment. For Mac computers, use Network Utility.
