#1634: New Messages features, Apple Q4 2022 results, Preview drops PostScript, iOS/iPadOS 15.7.1, Dvorak on iPhone and iPad

Last week, Apple released iOS 15.7.1 and iPadOS 15.7.1 with important security updates. The company also announced its Q4 2022 results, which revealed some interesting patterns: the iPad is again in decline, but the Mac has never been stronger. Rounding out the issue, we explore working around Apple’s elimination of PostScript support in macOS 13 Ventura’s version of Preview, the addition of the Dvorak keyboard in iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, and new features in Messages across Apple’s operating systems. Notable Mac app releases this week include ScreenFlow 10.0.7, GraphicConverter 11.7, OmniFocus 3.14, OmniOutliner Essentials and Pro 5.11, Fantastical 3.7.2, Audio Hijack 4.0.5 and Piezo 1.7.10, Acorn 7.3, SuperDuper 3.7, Agenda 16, Cardhop 2.2.2, Final Cut Pro 10.6.5, Compressor 4.6.3, and Motion 5.6.3, BusyCal 2022.4.4 and BusyContacts 2022.4.2, and Pages 12.2, Numbers 12.2, and Keynote 12.2.
