Good news for those who have found the Wallet app constraining for working with your Apple Card—Apple has finally launched a Web portal that lets you perform some (but not all) Apple Card-related tasks on your Mac. Wondering how the regular AirPods compare to the AirPods Pro? Adam Engst ended up with both, so he let them compete for his attention—his conclusion might surprise you. If the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented you from going cycling with your friends, you’ll want to read Julio Ojeda-Zapata’s review of Zwift, which lets you go on virtual bike rides with friends from around the world. Notable Mac app releases this week include URL Manager Pro 5.4, SoundSource 4.2.4, Firefox 78, SEE Finance 2.1.6, and Timing 2020.7.
Apple has at last launched a Web portal for the Apple Card so you no longer need to rely on your iPhone to check your balance or pay your bill. But it doesn’t provide all the capabilities available in the Wallet app.
Through a series of circumstances, Adam Engst ended up with both a pair of AirPods and a pair of AirPods Pro. When free to choose one or the other at any time, which did he pick? The answer—and what he recommends—might surprise you.
Outdoor cycling is feasible during the COVID-19 pandemic, but long rides are impractical and group rides are an infection risk. Enter Zwift, a bicycling simulator you run on an iPad, Mac, or Apple TV as you sit on a stationary bicycle. As you pedal, your Zwift counterpart does the same as it roams exotic realms. You can meet friends on Zwift, and you might even see a T-Rex!
