#1632: Apple Card Savings accounts, SOS in the iPhone status bar, Tab Wrangler, Focus in iOS 16

Apple has announced that it will soon offer savings accounts for Apple Card customers through its partnership with Goldman Sachs, though details remain scant.

Notable Mac app releases this week include TextExpander 7.3.1, Little Snitch 5.5, and EagleFiler 1.9.9.
