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.
Apple has released iOS 15.7.1 and iPadOS 15.7.1 to address numerous vulnerabilities on iPhones and iPads that either haven’t upgraded or can’t upgrade to iOS 16 and iPadOS 16. Update such devices as soon as possible.
Apple has dropped support for PostScript and Encapsulated PostScript files in macOS 13 Ventura. Most won’t notice, but here are some suggestions if you’re still using those formats.
If you use the Dvorak keyboard layout, you can now implement it for the onscreen keyboard in iOS 16 and iPadOS 16.
It has been a wild year, even for Apple. The company continues to come out smelling like expensive roses, but its fastest-growing product categories this quarter may surprise you.
For many people, Messages gains some of the most welcome new features of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS 13 Ventura. You can now mark messages as unread, edit messages, unsend messages, and more.
