We’ll walk you through using iTunes, iCloud and the new Finder window backup in MacOS Catalina. We even help you navigate the pricing tiers of iCloud.

  1. Yo if we missed some ways to back up your iPhone let us know. Also, should we do an Android version? Here's how to use Apple Pay

  2. I still have iTunes on my Mac even with the MacOS Catalina, but it doesn't recognize my devices. So the music I still have on my Mac (the ones I cannot find either on Spotify or on Apple Music) I won't be able to sync them in my iPhone anymore????
