#1594: iOS 15.2.1, AirTag stalking, CES Tech Trends for 2022

Last week, Apple rolled out iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1 to fix a nasty HomeKit-related vulnerability and patch a few small bugs. Police departments and the media have been abuzz with reports of Apple’s AirTag location trackers being abused by stalkers and thieves. Glenn Fleishman examines the concerns to see if they’re real or overblown. Finally, Jeff Porten is back from his virtual trip to CES in Las Vegas to share the Consumer Technology Association’s thoughts on—and his reactions to—tech trends to watch in 2022. Notable Mac app releases this week include Mactracker 7.11.1, HandBrake 1.5.1, Default Folder X 5.6.3, Fantastical 3.5.2 and Cardhop 2.0.8, Mimestream 0.32, SoundSource 5.3.9, ScreenFlow 10.0.4, Mellel 5.0.9, Bookends 14.0.4, and Microsoft Office for Mac 16.57.
