Last week brought two more Apple updates: the major release of OS X 10.11 El Capitan and a small update to iOS 9.0.2 — we answer all your questions about both. Podcasters were aghast when they discovered that the abandoned audio tool The Levelator didn’t work in El Capitan, but Adam Engst has discovered an easy fix. The new News app in iOS 9 marks a notable change in Apple’s approach to publishers; Josh Centers looks at what’s different and explains how you can start using News for your daily info fix. Finally, don’t miss the Mail Capitan sale from indie Mac developers, which offers deep discounts on Apple Mail plug-ins, as well as Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Apple Mail.” Notable software releases this week include Coda 2.5.12, Microsoft OneNote 15.14.2, Skype 7.13, Mellel 3.4.3, CleanMyMac 3.1, PDFpen and PDFpenPro 7.3.1, BBEdit 11.1.3, TextWrangler 5.0, Safari 9.0, and SuperDuper 2.8.
The bugs keep crawling in, and Apple keeps squashing them, which is why we’re getting iOS 9.0.2 a mere week after 9.0.1.
If you use Apple Mail in El Capitan, you can make it far more capable with the plug-ins that are part of the Mail Capitan sale through 18 October 2015.
If you’ve been using The Levelator to normalize volume in recorded audio, the bad news is that the orphaned app doesn’t work in El Capitan. The good news is that the fix is simple.
