Catalina is definitely a step back, it is full of bugs and issues. Cannot properly sync my photos, it is either all or none. It is a total disaster. Called the Support number and they are clueless, try to bounce you around to different people and none of them know what is going on. The same thing at the apple store, a very rude person at the front at Short Hills on 10-12-2019 made me call support on the phone at the front of the store, even though I told him that I had already done that, then as I am walking out without being helped and visibly upset, he tries to tell me that he will get a sales associate to help me, when I asked him before that I needed anyone to help me, so I left without even saying goodbye.
I am sorry to say that Apple is no longer a trustworthy company; it no longer innovates, only tries to make things more and more complex and only in a way that benefits them. I currently own 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 2 Apple Watches, and a MacBook Pro but this is the end of the line for me. I am officially fed up with their nonsense. It will never be what it once was.
