#1645: AirPlay iPhone to Mac for remote video, Siri learns to restart iPhones, Apple’s Q1 2023 financials

This week’s issue leads off with Adam Engst’s Christmas story of how he used thousands of dollars of Apple technology to locate a dead mouse. Not a computer mouse, but a flesh-and-blood mouse that had died somewhere underneath built-in shelves and begun emitting a foul stench. Adam also shares a tip about using Siri to reboot an iPhone or iPad, along with some musings on the feature’s cinematic future. Finally, Michael Cohen covers Apple’s Q1 2023 earnings call, where Tim Cook talked a lot about “foreign exchange headwinds” and a “challenging macroeconomic environment” en route to explaining why Apple’s still-massive revenues and profits weren’t as high as they were in the first quarter of last year. Notable Mac app releases this week include RapidWeaver Classic 9.0, Timing 2023.1.3, iStat Menus 6.7, and BusyCal 2023.1.3.
