#1463: Apple recalls plug adapters, how to cancel Apple News+, 3M WorkTunes headphones, find digital movie rental deals

If you’re in the UK, Hong Kong, or Singapore, note that Apple has recalled some three-prong wall plug adapters due to the risk of electrical shock. Apple News+ celebrated its one-month birthday last week, and if you’re not enamored of the service or just aren’t using it, Josh Centers explains how to cancel. Those looking for distraction while mowing the lawn might consider the 3M WorkTunes headphones, which combine hearing protection and Bluetooth audio. Finally, if you rent digital movies, Glenn Fleishman shows you how to find the best deals. Notable Mac app releases this week include LaunchBar 6.11.1, Luminar 3.1, and DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta.
