2020 issues differences between online archive and Australian edition (minimal)

As per my previous post (here for reference), I will make a posting of all differences I see between the online version, and the physical copies we receive here in Australia. 

The variations in the 2020 issues were minor.

2020 December:

-Although an advertisement, Australian version does not have the "Beyond The Frame" pages. Everything else is identical.

2020 November:

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 October:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 September:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 August:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 July:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

I can not see the map supplement for this issue online.

2020 June:  

-"Thank you" page is not present 

-"World Beat" page is slightly different and in a different location within magazine

2020 May:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 April:  

Identical save for the advertisements. However, I imagine everyone else's copy has two sides, to be read from either end (optimist vs pessimist), unlike the online version?

-I don't see "The Mark Of Humanity/Protecting Priorities" poster in the online version (it has perforated markings).

-It is interesting how the online version has this page as one page whereas physical copy is split in two and the optimist/pessimist sections of the inside foldout are upside down in the physical copy and all same side up in the online version (as it is to be read back to front). I imagine the online version was redesigned in such a way so that it can be read left to right front to back without flipping the screen?

2020 March:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 February:  

Identical save for the advertisements.

2020 January:

Identical save for the advertisements. In Australia there isn't an equivalent advertisement space for the Turkey spread or 'A land called Sunrise'.
