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

° From The Information: Apple’s rumored extended reality headset may require AirPods for audio.

° From KSAT: A man who had his car stolen and his work van burglarized overnight tracked his AirPods to find the suspects at a Southwest Side truck stop.
