Apple Shutting Down iTunes

Hi Guys
I want to show you guys what will happen to your iTunes when Apple upgrade you to the new MacOS Catalina which is due to be released around Monday 23 September 2019. I am getting a few people asking about what will happen to iTunes and their music files. Is Apple shutting down iTunes? Watch the video to find out.

In this video I have added one MP3 file to test with. One video file and a pods cast.
Alright so the version I am currently running is MacOS High Seirra. Version 10.13 and we will upgrade that to MacOS Catalina 10.14.

I am going to do the upgrade with my MacOS Catalina USB installer that I created in a previous video and I will put a link to that video here.

After the upgrade – Shutting down iTunes

Ok the upgrade has finished and now you can see iTunes has been replaced with three new icons. Apple Music, Podcasts and Apple TV.
If you start by opening Apple Music this is where your Music files should now be stored.
If we check for our test MP3 we can see it now shows up under the recently added menu in our Apple Music app.

Next up you can check out the Podcasts app. If you open that you should see your podcasts list. And theres the one we added earlier.

And the last app to check will be your Apple TV app. All your video content will be added here.
And theres our 123myIT video I added.

Number Of Malicious Apps Attacking Smartphone Users Has Skyrocketed

Malicious Android Apps

A new report has revealed that the number of apps containing malware reached 718,000 just last month. This is an increase of 350,000 up from the end of last year.
Some of the most common malicious apps are attempting to sign users up to pricey premium services which charge outrageous amounts for simply sending and receiving text messages for example.
According to Jonathan Oliver, Trend Micro’s software architecture director for Australia and New Zealand, there’s been a recent increase in the number of ‘genuine malware’ out there.
This type of malware knows how to take advantage of the vulnerabilities of the Android and how to access and steal sensitive information.
FAKEBANK is one example. It imitates genuine banking apps and steals usernames and passwords.
Cybercriminals make these apps by taking genuine apps and then installing the malicious software in them. Then they offer them for sale on the app store either for free or at a large discount.
According to Oliver, Android phones are more susceptible to attacks over iPhones because the Android app store is more open.
Oliver continued on to say that Australia is still a major target for cybercriminals as more and more people are using their phones for mobile banking purposes.
