Since I can’t cover everything, I like to offer a daily roundup of must-read articles from some other great websites:

° From Apple TV+’s YouTube channel: The Apple TV+ ad campaign starring actor Timothée Chalamet has a second spot in which Chalamet praises Apple’s taste and is sad that the streaming service is “missing someone” (namely, himself).

° From MacRumors: Apple Music subscribers can now listen to their “Replay 2023” playlist as of today. As in previous years, this playlist ranks all of the music you’ve been listening to on Apple Music from 1 to 100, updating weekly so you can keep track of your most-streamed songs of the year as 2023 progresses.

° From AppleInsider: The Apple Support app is now usable by even more Apple users, with three new languages and an expansion into 118 new regions bringing the software tool to a wider audience.

° From Macworld: If you’ve ever noticed your battery draining abnormally fast while using the Facebook or Messenger app on your iPhone, it might not be a coincidence.
