#1442: iPhone X and MacBook Pro repair programs, password managers in iOS 12, uninstalling CrashPlan, large-scale Apple installation stories

If you own a non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro or are having touch-related problems with an iPhone X, Apple has new repair programs for you. Did you use CrashPlan for Home? Adam Engst also shows you how to uninstall it so it no longer consumes resources. iOS 12 simplifies logging into Web sites and apps, thanks to integration with third-party password managers—Take Control of Your Passwords author Joe Kissell explains. Finally, Adam shares five stories about how large organizations are using Apple devices as focused tools rather than general-purpose computing devices. Notable Mac app releases this week include BBEdit 12.5, Scrivener 3.1, DEVONagent 3.11, iMovie 10.1.10, Tweetbot 3.2, MoneyWiz 3.1, and Pages 7.3, Numbers 5.3, and Keynote 8.3.
