#1696: Living with the Vision Pro, Apple Sports app, choosing SSDs, iMessage encryption, toketaWare shut down, when do you install macOS updates?

We have a massive issue for you this week, thanks to guest writer Marc Zeedar’s in-depth look at what it’s like to live with the Vision Pro. Beyond that, we have brief coverage of the new Apple Sports iPhone app and ExtraBITS about how to choose a fast external SSD, the new “post-quantum” PQ3 encryption protocol coming to iMessage, and the sad news that iThoughtsX developer toketaWare has shut down. Finally, our latest Do You Use It? poll asks when and how you install macOS updates. Notable Mac app releases this week include 1Password 8.10.26, Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.10, and Lightroom Classic 13.2.
