Real-time collaboration in iWork makes a significant difference to project work, and we now, finally, have a Music app that’s a genuine pleasure to navigate!

If you’re going to sell or pass on a device you’ve set up to use Apple Pay, you can remove the card from Wallet as part of cleaning down the device – whether that’s a full erase or, if your kids will use the device, perhaps just signing out of services such as iCloud.
