Yesterday I To be able to use AirPods Pro with it :/ Apple made a change and switched the default shell to zsh (instead of bash). From what I have read, the reason is a licensing issue.

Bash is not gone and everything will work like it used to. But every time you open a terminal, you will be greeted by this message:

Every time I open a terminal MacOS Catalina is telling me to switch to zsh

If you are like me, and not ready to make the switch to zsh, you can silence this warning by putting this into your .bash_profile (or .bashrc).

export BASH_SILENCE_DEPRECATION_WARNING=1

Why I don’t want to switch?

Everything in my workflow is heavily customized and I’m really used to it. For example, I’m using bash-it with a custom theme for years now. It is heavily inspired by Oh My Zsh, similar zsh framework. Still, it will take me some time to migrate everything.

I will eventually switch to zsh, but at the moment it is not high on my list of priorities.
