Fresh from writing Take Control of Your Digital Storage, Jeff Carlson joins us to explain APFS, the new file system that Apple brought to the Mac with macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Also this week, Josh Centers reviews AirFly, an accessory from TwelveSouth that lets you use AirPods with 3.5mm headphone jacks. Josh also steps outside the Apple world briefly to look at Internet services that help you avoid lemons while buying a used car. Notable Mac app releases this week include OmniOutliner Essentials and Pro 5.3.2, Slack for Mac 3.2, and Fantastical 2.5.1.
If you can’t separate yourself from your AirPods, Twelve South’s AirFly helps you use them with any device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
Buying a car but don’t want to blow your budget on CarFax lookups? Josh Centers went through this recently and found three useful vehicle history services that he has built into a process that anyone can follow.
