Apple Acquires Workflow

In an interesting and uncharacteristic move, Apple has purchased mobile app Workflow for an undisclosed sum. It’s an iOS utility that allows you create shortcuts to peform a string of actions and can be triggered by a Widget, a Home Screen icon, share sheet button, or even from the Apple Watch.

For now, Apple is not only going to keep Workflow in the App Store, but the normally $2.99 app will be free.

Update Your Damn Phone

Working in technology, I’d wager at least half of the people I encounter have red alert badges on multiple home screen icons. The reasons why they ignore them aren’t important. What’s important is that you need to take action.

Apple just released iOS 9.3.5 to fix a zero-day security vunerability that could potentially give access to your iPhone to hackers using a simple link in a text message, email, or web site.

So, stop staring at the little red badges and update your damn iPhone.
