There’s something Microsoft Outlook does better than Apple Mail (gasp!): It’ll allow you to customize and disable swipes on messages to archive them, delete them, flag them, and so on.

Along with iOS 11.3.1 for the iPhone and iPad, Apple released macOS 10.13.4 Security Update 2018-001 on Tuesday. The Mac update fixes security issues related to privileges and UI spoofing.
Dave Hamilton and Andrew Orr join Jeff Gamet to talk about why macOS and iOS won’t merge into a single operating system for now, and they look at how the iPhone’s long life span stands in contrast to Greenpeace criticism.
Running iOS apps on macOS is not the same as merging the two OSes. John explains.
Within Photos on the Mac and in the iOS app, there’s a way to unsubscribe to shared albums that you’re a part of. So if you no longer need to see twenty pictures a day of your third cousin’s new dachshund, you can opt out!

Adam Christianson from The Maccast and Kelly Guimont join Jeff Gamet talk about what Apple’s coming end to 32-bit Mac app support means, plus they share some properties they’d love to see as original shows on Apple Music.
Apple is making it clear that 32-bit apps on the Mac are going away and the future will be 64-bit only. So how to you tell if your Mac has a 32-bit or 64-bit processor? Read on to learn how.

This should give you a better idea of caching that you do, what data is being served vs. dropped, and give an overall picture of your caching network.
Apple recommends that you set up content caching on a Mac that has a wired Ethernet connection. You can do it over Wi-Fi, but performance may be affected.
Today’s Quick Tip is on a fancy new security feature of the latest releases of macOS and iOS. It can protect you! But only if you pay attention to it. We’ll go over what it’s telling you and what you should do—or not do!—when you see it.

Currently, he is the security editor at Tidbits. We chatted about Rich’s career, then delved into some security issues of interest to Apple customers: the relative security of macOS vs. Windows 10, the security of iOS, whether AES-256 encryption is still “good enough,” iCloud security, and the technical feasibility of an unhackable backdoor into our iPhones for law enforcement. If you’re interested in all things security, this is the show for you.
