See you soon with more comments on how Apple isn’t being a good company. How Apple products are still too expensive to own, fix and maintain. And let’s see if having Siri in my house is a good thing! Cheers to more pwd/account breaches and hoping other states follow in California Privacy laws.
Ironically, my Mac with 10.14.5 indicated no updates available…

So having an iPod Touch 5th Gen for several years now, without any falls, drops or abuse. Then one afternoon, doing yardwork and listening to the ipod (via Bluetooth ISOtunes earbuds), the [roduct slips out of my pocket and in slowmotion, I watch it hit its corner on a hard surface (sidewalk).
(some would argue “why no cover or sleeve/case?”. Why indeed! To make it bulkier? Thicker and not able to reside in a shirt pocket? Exactly. Apple made this from glass (it will break) and aluminum (it will dent/ding/scratch), for the reason that the consumer will replace it…with another iDevice).
Well, I replaced it. But not with a $200-$300 ipod. Are you nuts? Instead, I bought a $49 Sandisk Clip Go w/Bluetooth.
Copied (limit is 4000 songs) music over after it charged up, added my BT Isotunes and back to yard work.
Caveats: have to use the Sandisk USB cable to charge/transfer songs. Some USB Micro cables don’t have all the pins needed.
It forgets the BT setting (its on, it remembers the device, but it does need a reminder-click through and make sure).
A song stopped playing so there may be a file issue (MP4/FLAC/MP3)
For $50, I can put up with those. But for Apple, slowly but surely, I am weening off your expensive, inaccessible-designed fruit.
For several years, I’ve linked to Apple’s RSS feeds for Downloads. This would allow an automated updated of what updates are available from Apple on the Mac OS, along with link to the update (e.g. Mac OS Combo Updates, iTunes updates, etc.).
Well, on an infrequent update to the Macanix site (backend WP updates, plugins,…), I’ve found that for some time, Apple no longer provides RSS updates that it had.
Now, the only RSS feeds are more for iTunes store, than Mac OS, and Apple products.
Here is a link to Apple’s Downloads that should allow what recent updates are available (until Apple changes this link; note this link is for US…it may be different in your country).
