° From AppleInsider: Apple will soon test a pair of new ad placements on the App Store that will give developers more opportunities to get their apps discovered by users.

° From The Mac Observer: Apple has begun selling the iPhone 12 mini in the U.S. Apple Refurbished Store. The 128GB model goes for $579.

° From 9to5Mac: Disney has launched a useful update this week for its streaming service on Apple TV 4K. For those with supported original HomePods, AirPods, or likely other speakers, the Disney+ app now works with Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio.

° From MacVoices Live!: On the new episode, the discussion concludes with more on the Kantar designation of Apple as the world’s most valuable brand.
