#1469: Non-destructive photo editing explained, 101-year-old TidBITS reader, Apple TV Home button tip, iOS 12.3.2

If you have an iPhone 8 Plus, note that Apple just released iOS 12.3.2 to fix a Portrait mode bug. Those with an Apple TV should also pay attention—if you don’t like how the Home button takes you to the Apple TV app, you can reset it to send you to the Home screen, just like it used to. We also have two treats for you this week. First, Adam Engst interviews a TidBITS member, George Jedenoff, who is still going strong at nearly 102 years old. Second, Nik Bhatt, who previously led Apple’s Aperture and iPhoto teams, contributes an in-depth look at how non-destructive editing works in Photos. Notable Mac app releases this week include iMovie 10.1.12, DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta 3, and Logic Pro X 10.4.5.

George Jedenoff: A 101-Year-Old TidBITS Reader

We’ve known since the beginning that TidBITS readers are an unusual and fascinating group, but George Jedenoff stands out. As an infant, he escaped the Russian Revolution with his parents, and after picking up a Stanford MBA and serving with the US Navy Reserve during World War II, he worked his way through the ranks of the steel industry, retiring as president of Kaiser Steel. And that was all before Apple even existed—he started with the Mac in 1987.
