I have two old iOS devices:
iPad Mini 1 (iOS 9.3.5)
iPod Touch 5th generation (iOS 9.3.5).
Neither of these devices can be upgraded to a newer version of iOS. If I upgrade my MacBook Pro to run macOS Catalina, will I be able to use these devices? Specifically:
Currently I use iTunes to sync media to my devices. Once iTunes is discontinued, will I be able to use Apple Music, Podcasts, etc. for that purpose?
Currently I use iTunes File Sharing to transfer files to and from the various apps on my devices. Once iTunes is discontinued, what will take its place for me? Will I be able to use the Finder to transfer files to / from my devices?
My concern is that the upgrade to macOS Catalina will require a similar upgrade on the device, and since these devices can't be upgraded any further, I am worried that they will become essentially useless. Can anyone set my mind at ease?
