Personally, most of Catalina appears centered around removing the many features users know and use frequently. Since there a few actual new features, aside from sidecar, which apparently only works for certain users, I now have even LESS reasons to upgrade than ever. Please Apple, as you continue jacking your prices up into the stratosphere, give us something to renew our faith in Apple. Bad imitations of Amazon, Google and Facebook won't corner any markets, and will only cannibalize your existing fans, as fewer of us will bother upgrading anymore. You can only sell uber-expensive toys to the super-rich for so long before you're left with NO market at all. It's fine having both a high end and an Uber class, but at least give the rest of us a reason NOT to jump ship and denounce Apple for the greedy F*cks Ive is painting them as. I LOVE Apple products, but as you release more and more 'never affordable' products, I'm going longer and longer between ANY upgrades at all. Without a device to support, what use are 'services'?

I love the line about ‘any music/books you’ve uploaded will be saved.’ I’m an author, and like proofing and having access to my own books, yet Apple insists on deleting them all anytime I upgrade because I don’t ‘purchase’ my own books from Apple. Expect the same with ANYTHING stored on Apple devices. If Apple doesn’t own it, they won’t give a shit! That’s why I keep everything backed up, ‘cause Apple loves deleting stuff you own for no apparent reason.
