° From iMore: If some of your albums aren’t sounding quite right on Apple Music, you’re not alone. There’s a possible bug affecting gapless playback for some iPhone and iPad users in iOS/iPadOS 16.2, according to posts on Reddit and in Apple’s support forums.

° From Privacy Wizards: Privacy Wizards, an online privacy website, has released their annual guide to the best iPhone VPNs in 2023. The comprehensive guide includes reviews and rankings of the top VPNs for iPhone users, as well as a breakdown of key features and pricing.
