    What about Bluetooth fixes? iMac 2017 always have broken Bluetooth on third party wireless earphones and three years passed, no fix at all.
    You have the most interesting problems that nobody else seems to ever have.
    may be. or just one who voices out. or me solved other problems except those rare happened to others. i’m one of many people insisted Apple slowed down my iPhone 6 Plus. 

    i’m using Aftershokz. 3 generations in 4 years all have bluetooth connection problem with iMac. Filed a few cases to Apple, no solution. is it Aftershokz’s problem? could be bad marriage between them. Apple should take a look at the log, they just don’t care.  i said bone conduction tech is good, and people laugh. now Apple is putting their toes in it. facts are facts; facts won’t change because of where you stand.
    You are neatly omitting the fact that you were screaming about "planned obsolescence" the whole time. I don't know what "or me solved other problems except those rare happened to others" means, so I can't speak to that.

    I can't discuss the Aftershokz brand personally, but doing a 10-second Google search, I see folks with all kinds of different hardware yelling at Aftershokz about Bluetooth connectivity issues. Looking closer at the Google reports, it looks like Aftershokz is using a funky mix of Bluetooth errata in whatever chipset they are using, which can cause problems.

    I can speak to the 2017 iMac not having problems with about 40 different brands of Bluetooth speakers that we've tested on one.

    I don't even know what you're going on about with the bone conduction thing, or how it applies to this conversation.

    In regards to everything else, we had the update pop up on Software Update on one machine yesterday pre-publication. When I posted the link, which we used to verify the existence of the update, it resolved. We'll look into it a bit more today.

    It wasn't, but something is still screwy. We'll see what the day brings.

    But do you have an iMac 2017?  He said "iMac 2017", not MBP 2012 or MBP 2019.

    No, but I think the point stands. A quick check of Apple’s Support Forums does not reveal any sort of mysterious Bluetooth issue affecting ONLY 2017 iMacs ...

    I think the only issue I still have in Catalina that I can't seem to nail down is Safari will stop loading pages occasionally. Usually easily fixed by  quitting and reopening Safari, but occasionally requires a reboot. Doesn't happen often, but kind of annoying. Anyone else see this? 

    I use Safari 14 since Beta 2, now in Beta 5 and everything works fine.
    The Beta4 had a small localization string glitch in privacy.

    I haven't had bluetooth issues with ANY device, Apple or not, since 2011 or so

    yeah, should have stated "beta". i can see that update as public beta tester...
    I'm not, and neither are the overwhelming majority of people who would see this article. The responsible thing for AI to do here would be to either edit it, post a retraction, or pull it. Based on my past experience with AI, though, I expect nothing to happen and for them to ignore it.

    There is a update in the piece, and has been for over 24 hours. Across the staff, we have now had three different non-beta machines get update notifications.

    Still nothing here. Was it limited to certain sets of hardware perhaps?
