#1464: Apple Q2 2019 financials, Google Home audio fix, Reminders sorting stinks, IINA video player

Apple’s iPhone sales are still slipping, according to its Q2 2019 financial report, but the company still beat analyst expectations and posted an $11.56 billion profit. Can Tim Cook and company grow Apple’s services business to maintain growth? If you’ve bought a Google Home smart speaker but are having trouble with it dropping Bluetooth audio, Josh Centers has a fix for you. Josh also takes a look at the IINA video player for the Mac, an elegant open-source app that supports obsolete video formats that Apple will drop in the next version of macOS. Finally, Adam Engst files another Bad Apple column, this time looking at how Apple’s Reminders app is truly terrible at sorting list items. In what we can only interpret as a lull before the WWDC storm, there were no notable Mac software releases this week, but we have some ExtraBITS to point you to for additional worthwhile reading.
