#1629: iOS 16.0.2, customizing the iOS 16 Lock Screen, iPhone wallet cases, meditate for free with Oak

Late last week, Apple released iOS 16.0.2 to address a few early iOS 16 bugs, most notably excessive paste permission prompts and camera shake in third-party apps on the iPhone 14 Pro. Want to improve your focus and calm your mind? Meditation is a time-tested solution, but many guided-meditation apps charge a subscription fee. Josh Centers offers a look at the free meditation app Oak. After getting an iPhone 14 Pro, Adam Engst is again looking for an iPhone wallet case, so he reviews what he and Tonya have tried recently. Finally, Josh explores the ins and outs of customizing your Lock Screen in iOS 16. Notable Mac app releases this week include Backblaze 8.5, Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.3, Pixelmator Pro 3.0, DEVONthink 3.8.6, DEVONagent Pro 3.11.6, Fantastical 3.7.1, and BusyCal 2022.3.3.
