#1539: AirPods Pro service program, broader Intercom support, numerous Apple OS updates, MagSafe quirks

In anticipation of tomorrow’s big Mac event, Apple last week cleared the decks with updates for all of its non-Mac operating systems to patch problematic security holes and add new features, like Intercom support for iOS. The company also released updates to macOS 10.15.7 Catalina and some older versions of iOS and watchOS to address exploited security vulnerabilities. If you’ve experienced crackling, static, or other audio problems with your AirPods Pro, Apple may fix them for free. Finally, we take a look at the new MagSafe connector on the iPhone 12. Will its ease of use outweigh its various quirks and trade-offs? Notable Mac app releases this week include Little Snitch 5.0, Evernote 10.2.4, EagleFiler 1.9.1, Default Folder X 5.5, and BusyCal 3.11.
