#1624: Important OS security updates, rescuing QuickTake 150 photos, AirTag alerts while traveling

Last week, Apple released iOS 15.6.1, iPadOS 15.6.1, and macOS 12.5.1 to address a pair of critical security issues—you should update soon. Apple’s QuickTake 100 from 1994 was the first consumer digital camera, but Photos crashes if you try to work with original QuickTake photos in your library. Adam Engst explains how he used the current version of GraphicConverter to make his QuickTake photos usable on a modern Mac. Finally, prompted by numerous stories of AirTags saving the day in this summer of lost luggage, Glenn Fleishman explains how to tune Find My to prevent annoying alerts while traveling. Notable Mac app releases this week include Safari 15.6.1 and Lightroom Classic 11.5.
