Apple has updated all of its operating systems once again to fix a security vulnerability accidentally reintroduced in the last round of updates. Remember our interview with the 101-year-old TidBITS reader? George Jedenoff is now 102 and has just published his autobiography—it’s well worth a read. The Apple Card is now available to all US iPhone users, so Josh Centers explains how to sign up and opt-out of the arbitration clause. Finally, if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the possibilities for sharing vacation photos, you’re not alone. Adam Engst shares his thinking about the best ways to share photos within Apple’s ecosystem. Notable Mac app releases this week include EagleFiler 1.8.9, SpamSieve 2.9.37, Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.10, Swift Publisher 5.5, Pixelmator Pro 1.4.1, and Ulysses 17.
Apple has issued emergency updates for macOS 10.14 Mojave, iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12 because it accidentally reintroduced a major security vulnerability in last month’s round of updates.
Remember our interview with George Jedenoff? He has finished his autobiography, so if you’re curious about the life and times of a fellow TidBITS reader who went from fleeing the Russian Revolution as an infant to becoming the president of a steel company, now’s your chance.
After a short period of restricting the Apple Card to those who signed up for early access, Apple has now opened the Apple Card to all iPhone users in the United States. Apple said nothing about when it might become available in other countries.
