Intego Mac Podcast, Episode 34: iOS 12, macOS Mojave, Features and Security & Privacy Enhancements

We cover Apple’s new operating system announcements, looking at the new features in iOS 12 and macOS Mojave. And we take a close look at the security and privacy features in these operating systems.

Check out the latest episode of The Intego Mac Podcast, which I co-host with Josh Long. We talk about Macs and iOS devices, and how to keep them secure.

Why Is AirPlay 2 Not Available for the Mac?

Apple released iOS 11.4 last week, which included AirPlay 2, the new version of Apple’s music and video streaming framework.

Use Your Mac More Efficiently with Accessibility Options

Apple has long made its operating systems compatible for the largest possible number of people, providing options and tools for those with assistive needs. Accessibility options can help not only those who need to adjust their computing devices for certain limitations, but some of these options can make computing easier for everyone.

Last year, we covered five accessibility features; and now, here are some more options that can help you use your Mac more efficiently.
