Since I can’t cover everything, I like to offer a daily roundup of must-read articles from other websites: 

° From MacRumors: Apple’s AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max headphones regularly receive over-the-air firmware updates that are installed through an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, but for those who do not have an Apple device, there is no way to get new firmware on their own.

° From AppleInsider: Echoing NSO Group’s Pegasus debacle, another spyware tool that could attack the iPhone was sold to governments, and has only now been discovered.

° From The Hollywood Reporter: Pinkfong, the South Korean entertainment studio behind the massively popular Baby Shark IP is making its first foray into podcasting with a slate of original shows exclusively available on Apple Podcasts.

° From iMore: Apple’s new M3 Mac chips might be even more powerful than expected.

° From MacVoices Live!: On the new episode, The Road to Macstock Conference & Expo continues in a conversation about The Midwest Mac BBQ and Wine Event. Organizer Barry Fulk talks about the return of the Macstock-adjacent event, its evolution, and how it will be structured this year.
