Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2020-10-09

For now this has been a quiet week. Since Apple announced another event next week, possibly a calm before the storm. After Apple announced iOS 14 with 24 hours notice, MacAdmins are understandably a bit nervous. Also, no new betas this week (so far).

On the other hand, after JNUC last week, we had MacSysAdmin this week. I have not been able to watch all presentations yet, but those that I have seen have been worth it and I am looking forward to the rest.

In other news, this newsletter just passed the 1000 email subscribers number! Thank you all for reading, and on to the next thousand!
