#1527: Apple OS bug fix updates, Setapp gains iOS apps, adapting to school at home, developer complaints about the App Store

Last week, Apple released iOS 13.6.1, iPadOS 13.6.1, and macOS 10.15.6 Supplemental Update to fix a storage bug on the iPhone and iPad and bugs on the Mac. The Setapp subscription service has added iOS versions of multi-platform apps to its offerings, but you’ll have to pay extra per device. Rich Mogull’s children are back in school in Arizona, and he offers hard-won advice for how his family is navigating remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Last but far from least, Josh Centers explores the major complaints about the App Store, analyzes them, and offers potential solutions. Notable Mac app releases this week include Mellel 5.0.3, Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.21, Banktivity 7.5.2, Moneydance 2020, Microsoft Office for Mac 16.40, DEVONthink 3.5.2, and SoundSource 5.0.3.
