    I installed it an hour ago (although the installation process took hours, seemingly stuck on the Settings screen); now working fine, with Netflix etc.

    After the update, my MBP slowed down but I think that's just Spotlight doing its indexing thing and since 32-bit apps aren't supported anymore, some games in my Steam library stopped working.

    I also wasn't able to get sidecar to work for some reason and I gave up on it since I don't really need that feature anyway.

    Other than that, going from Mojave to Catalina has been smooth sailing.

    Although a minor thing, they still haven't fixed the missing '+' to create a new tab in Finder. Only when you have at least two tabs will the '+' appear.

    i really need to update to ssd. the stock imac 2017 went slower, while the 2012 imac works well with catalina.

    macbook pros did not have a problem, overall, those pop ups about allowing the app to access certain directories like Documents is a bit annoying but it's for security's sake so leaving it at that

    Since there’s no iTunes in Catalina, how do you back up your iPhones and iPads on Catalina?

    According to this Apple Support article: How to back up your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, all you need is Finder. Haven't tried it personally as my backups are all in iCloud.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the replies. Does the Finder have a feature where you can add files to iPhone apps also, like drag and drop video files into the VLC app on the phone?

    My mac mini 2012 automatically updated to Catalina and is now stuck in a boot loop. I think it's because there was very little space left on the HD when it upgraded. I'll try recovery steps in the weekend.

    Sidecar with Apple Pencil is pretty awesome, though I can't see any immediate use for this in my case.

    That did the trick!

    Another issue is when syncing your iPhone/iPad via Finder.
    I have Infuse and when I copy files to it, there is no progress bar on the copy status. Also, you cannot do multiple deletes (e.g. Shift+click)

    There isn't a status bar, what Finder shows is a round status icon beside your iOS device in the sidebar. you can select multiple items using cmd+click then delete

    Can you drag and drop photos and videos to/from your iPhone’s camera roll to the computer and vice versa using Finder now?
