Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Macworld.com: “macOS Catalina: How to make your iPhone and iPad appear on the Desktop”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

With the death of iTunes in macOS, Apple shunted access to connected iPhones and iPads to the Finder via the Locations section of the sidebar. Some readers reported not spotting their devices there, and had no idea how to get them to show up.

Check the box under the Locations section that reads CDs, DVDs, and iOS Devices. (This includes iPads, even though they run iPadOS now.)

Now your connected iPhones and iPads appear in the Sidebar. You can select a device and gain access to most features previously found in iTunes when selecting the device in the app’s toolbar.
