#1611: OS updates, RIP iPod touch, iCloud Drive shared folder data loss risk, KDEConnect links iPhone to Linux

Walk, don’t run, to download Apple’s latest operating system updates, which correct a Podcasts annoyance, fix a few bugs, and plug security vulnerabilities—the updates are welcome but not essential to install immediately. Last week, Apple also announced that the iPod touch will remain available only as long as supplies last, marking the end of the iPod line. For those who use both an iPhone and Linux on the desktop, a bit of good news: the KDEConnect app is now available for the iPhone and iPad, bringing some integration between the platforms. In his latest Bad Apple column, Adam Engst chastises Apple for how file deletion by participants in shared iCloud Drive folders could easily lead to accidental data loss. Notable Mac app releases this week include BBEdit 14.1.2, Audio Hijack 4.0.3, Mimestream 0.35.2, BusyCal 2022.2.2, Bookends 14.0.8, Ulysses 26, macOS Big Sur 11.6.6, and Security Update 2022-004 Catalina.
