The advent of macOS Catalina brought major changes to the apps that manage and play various types of media. Kirk McElhearn helps us navigate those changes in his new Take Control of macOS Media Apps. iTunes is gone, and in  its place are separate apps Music, Podcasts, TV, and Books, with all syncing now handled through the Finder. Kirk walks us through each of these to help us make the transition and know what app does what.
