Apple confirms iOS 13 Reminders will be fixed with macOS Catalina rollout

  Apple confirms iOS 13 Reminders will be fixed with macOS Catalina rollout iOS 13 came out a couple of weeks ago, but one thing you may have noticed is that Reminders no longer sync with Macs. Apple has confirmed that Reminders will not sync until the release of the newest version of macOS. The new version of Reminders for iPhone impressed us with its improvements in iOS 13.1. However, to sync Reminders between an iPhone and a Mac requires macOS 10.15, a.k.a. Catalina, which isn't due to release until the coming weeks. "Upgraded reminders aren't compatible with earlier versions of iOS and macOS," Apple says on its support site.

Rumors have been circulating for months that Apple is readying a new, 16-inch MacBook Pro model — some reports claiming as early as this year — and we might have just gotten a first look at it, thanks to a new image hidden in the latest macOS Catalina 10.15.1 beta that was uncovered by MacGeneration.

The file apparently refers to a new MacBook Pro model designated “MacBookPro16,1” (which in and of itself just indicates that it’s a new model — the 16 here is likely just a coincidence based on how Apple does its model numbering), and features a thumbnail image for what definitely looks like a larger MacBook Pro with thinner bezels than the current 15-inch model’s icon.

  GoPro's Hero8 Black Is Boring—and That's What Makes It Great No single upgrade in GoPro’s new flagship camera will surprise you. There is no “new killer feature” that sets it apart from either the competition or last year’s Hero7 Black. It doesn’t even have a built-in selfie screen (although you can buy one as a new add-on “mod.”) And yet, somehow, the Hero8 Black is the GoPro I’ve been waiting to see for years without realizing it.

MacRumors has confirmed that the files — which depict the new model in both silver and space gray colors — are present in the current beta, which means that if the image is accurate to the finished design (and not just a placeholder), than we could be getting our first good look at the newest MacBook Pro.

While the image is definitely of a larger MacBook with thinner bezels, there’s no way to tell from here whether the most requested change — a new scissor-switch keyboard that’s rumored to be debuting on the 16-inch model to replace Apple’s heavily maligned butterfly switches — is present as well.

It wouldn’t be the first time Apple’s accidentally leaked a new product design with accidental beta icons, either: the company confirmed the iPhone X’s redesign with an beta icon, as well as the iPhone XS Max and iPad Pro redesigns last year. Most recently, Apple’s rumored noise-cancelling AirPod Pros might have made an appearance in the iOS 13.2 beta.

Apple’s been rumored to be working on a 16-inch MacBook Pro that would debut a new design for some time, with Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claiming that the larger model will introduce a new keyboard that will trickle down to the rest of the lineup in 2020. Historically, Apple has had a second fall event in October where it has tended to focus on iPad and Mac updates. Combined with the beta images, it could mean that we’re just a few days away from Apple formally announcing the new laptop.

Apple opted not to host another press conference this year, as it was the case last October and in some of the previous years, even though the mid-September iPhone event didn’t reveal all the product launches we expected. Earlier this week, Apple quietly unveiled the brand new AirPods Pro that had been present in rumors for several months but said nothing about the Mac Pro, whose launch date is still a mystery, in spite of the professional desktop having been unveiled all the way back in June.
