# 1592: HomeKit Life, Summary Notifications, Music Store / iTunes Oddity, Accidental Deletion of Emails, iOS Update Error, Vacation Break

Cupertino, December 20, 2021

The holidays are here again, and we're taking a break from our weekly email issues until January 10, 2022. We'll update the site in the meantime, so make sure you stop by. Continuing our series of notifications in iOS 15, we approach the Summary of notifications, which can gather non-urgent notifications and deliver them at set times. It's a great way to reduce digital noise. David C. joins us this week to talk about some weird things in iTunes and Music around downloaded songs. Adam ends the year with a look back at a year of HomeKit and how it has changed his life for the better. Notable year-end Mac releases include * deep breathing * LaunchBar 6.15, Logic Pro 10.7.2, TextExpander 7.1, Tinderbox 9.1, Safari 15.2, Pixelmator Pro 2.3.3, Bookends 14.0.3, BusyCal 2021.4.Contacts and BusyCal 2021.4. .3, Typinator 8.11, Photos Search 3.0, Fission 2.8, BBEdit 14.0.4, Acorn 7.1.2 and Lightroom Classic 11.1.

According to our tradition, we will start the last weeks of 2021, which this year means slightly larger gatherings with our close families and video calls with distant relatives. You can expect the next TidBITS email on January 10, 2022. Thank you for reading TidBITS, and we hope our content has enriched your life.

Did you know that pressing Control-H in Mail deletes the current message? You do it now. Adam also shares a story about a Pakistani security researcher who reported a vulnerability on the TidBITS site and a tip for the reader about avoiding USB hubs when upgrading an iPhone from a Mac.

iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 can summarize less urgent notifications in regular summaries to reduce the number of times your phone distracts you.

With iOS Music, it's easy to accidentally delete a song purchased from your library when you're just trying to remove the downloaded sound. You can't recover from this mistake in the Music app, but you need to work through the iTunes Store using a Mac.

Adam Engst shares how he has significantly added his HomeKit-based home automation system over the past year and thinks about the true benefits of home automation. Tip: It's not about making things easier physically.
