Apple has released Rapid Security Response updates for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS to address a severe WebKit vulnerability that’s actively being exploited—update soon. Continuing in the security vein, Adam Engst explores the question of whether having 1Password auto-fill both passwords and security codes is true two-factor authentication. (It’s not. But it’s still worthwhile.) Adam then changes gears to explain how he’s not entirely happy with how he uses Siri to request music on HomePods and to solicit ideas from those who like their approach. Notable Mac app releases this week include Zoom 5.15.2 and DEVONthink 3.9.2.
