iOS 13 will finally offer support for mice and external storage devices, so Josh Centers explains why one of Apple’s two Lightning to USB adapters is a better choice than the other. If you hate Netflix’s autoplay previews as much as Adam Engst, you can avoid them with a pair of Apple TV apps he has discovered. Do you struggle with macOS’s aging color management tools? Timothy Buck joins us again to review Sip, a smart color management app for developers and graphics professionals. Wrapping up the issue, Jeff Porten reviews a trio of gadgets he collected at this year’s CES: a battery that can power an iPhone and a MacBook simultaneously, an audio equalizer app for the Mac, and a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds that are about half the price of Apple’s AirPods. Notable Mac app releases this week include 1Password 7.3.2, ChronoSync 4.9.4, BusyCal 3.6.9, and DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta 6.
If you’re looking forward to USB drive and mouse support for your iPhone and iPad in Apple’s upcoming iOS 13, make sure you get the right Lightning adapter. You want the bigger one.
If you dislike being in the Netflix Apple TV app because of the autoplay previews or just because it’s constantly pushing new shows on you that you don’t want to watch, Apple TV apps from Reelgood and WatchAid provide a front end to your queue. Neither is ideal, though.
What if there was a single place to pick, store, and organize colors on your Mac that also made it simple to use those colors in design apps, for development, or however you want? Sip is a menu bar app that does just that.
