Wondering how to update the Firefox web browser? Firefox is a popular web browser and some Mac fans may use it as their default browser. If you’re a Firefox user, you may have noticed that Firefox periodically updates itself automatically. But if you’re not quitting and relaunching the app often you can be stuck on an outdated version, which can pose a security issue.
Keeping web browsers up to date with the latest version is almost always recommended for security purposes, and right now that’s particularly important with Firefox because the US Department of Homeland Security has acknowledged a Firefox security exploit that could cause the takeover of a targeted computer and is thereby urging Firefox users to update to 72.0.1 (or later) right away.
This article will show you how to manually update Firefox on MacOS, an easy process to initiate if you’re unfamiliar.

OK so here’s a silly one, don’t take this too seriously… but as you may know, up until the release of the 16″ MacBook Pro, all MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models removed the hardware escape key along with the function keys and replaced it with the Touch Bar virtual screen.

If you’ve used popular social networking apps like Instagram and Snapchat, there’s a good chance you’re well-aware of the “Stories” feature. These are usually short video clips recorded and shared by holding the shutter icon within the app’s camera interface. Perhaps Apple has taken cues from these apps and added a similar functionality to the redesigned Camera app that comes out of the box with the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Dubbed QuickTake video, the feature allows users to quickly start shooting videos without having to switch to the dedicated video recording section within the Camera app. This makes recording videos a tad more convenient than it used to be on the older iPhones and iPads.

These could include work-related conversations with colleagues, important plans with family, friends and the list just goes on. This is exactly why you should consider backing up these data to cloud storage services, so you don’t exactly lose them because of a corrupted software update or a simple uninstall/reinstall of the messaging application.
The stock Messages app that’s baked into iOS devices automatically backs up your conversations to iCloud as long as it’s turned on. However, popular third-party messaging services like WhatsApp take a slightly different approach when it comes to backing up your chats.
When Apple released AirPods Pro it changed the way they are controlled compared to standard AirPods. Whereas tap controls of the earbuds handled playback controls and Siri of AirPods, AirPods Pro now have a squeeze gesture.
This new gesture can be used to either toggle active noise cancellation (ANC) and transparency modes, or invoke Siri – the choice is yours.
You can change how AirPods respond when you double-tap on them while they’re in your ears. For example, if you want to be able to double-tap on the left AirPod to summon Siri, and double-tap on the right AirPod to play or pause audio, you can configure that easily.
There are a variety of double-tap customizations available for AirPods, including Siri, play/pause/stop audio, skip track, and go back a track, and you can set those double-tap controls separately for both the Left and Right AirPod.
