#1596: OS updates, Apple Q1 2022 outpaces supply constraints, Yahoo POP bug, Apple Personal Safety User Guide, Simply Piano

Last week, Apple updated all its operating systems with unspecified bug fixes and important security updates. The company also posted record-breaking financials for Q1 2022 despite supply constraints and weak sales in Japan. Adam Engst has solved a mystery for some TidBITS readers, discovering that Yahoo’s POP3 email service occasionally garbles TidBITS articles by deleting periods. Glenn Fleishman draws on his experience writing books about privacy and security to evaluate Apple’s new Personal Safety User Guide website and PDF. Finally, Josh Centers reviews Simply Piano, explaining how it helped his 8-year-old son pick up the instrument. Notable Mac app releases this week include macOS Big Sur 11.6.3 and Security Update 2022-001 Catalina, Safari 15.3, URL Manager Pro 5.9, Zoom 5.9.3, and BusyCal 2022.1.1 and BusyContacts 1.6.4.
