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.
iOS 16.0.2 fixes early bugs related to paste permissions and camera shake, along with a few other issues.
Oak is a free alternative to subscription-based guided meditation apps. It offers a simple menu of meditations that should be more than enough for most people.
With a new iPhone comes a new case. Adam Engst has become fond of iPhone wallet cases that store a few cards and a couple of bills, so he explored some new options for his iPhone 14 Pro.
