#1620: OS updates, AssistiveTouch for iOS shortcut palette, Photos album sharing bug

Last week, Apple released minor updates for its current round of operating systems, along with security updates for macOS 10.15 Catalina and macOS 11 Big Sur. After nearly a decade, Josh Centers revisits the AssistiveTouch feature of iOS and iPadOS to show how—beyond its accessibility uses—you can employ it as a handy palette of custom shortcuts. Finally, Josh points out a bug in Photos that could cause you to share an album with people other than those who you intend. Notable Mac app releases this week include Audio Hijack 4.0.4, macOS Big Sur 11.6.8 and Security Update 2022-005 Catalina, Safari 15.6, Ulysses 27.2, DEVONthink 3.8.5, iFinance 5.0.4, and 1Password 8.8.
