Apple Q3 likely to disappoint in wake of Brexit, slower iPhone upgrade cycles, analyst says — Apple’s stock price is down over 1% in Tuesday trading in the wake of a Citigroup investor memo, calling for the company’s sales to slide below Wall Street predictions when it announces third-quarter results on July 26.

External Editors for Photos review: Every image editor is now an extension — An OS X Photos extension allows pictures to be edited using any image editor on your Mac. JR Bookwalter gives it a whirl (it only costs NZ$1.49/US$1). This is how it works: open an image with OS X Photos, click Edit, then select External Editors from the Extensions icon bar. You’ll see a list of image editing apps at right; click one and it launches automatically, ready to work on the current photo. Make your desired edits, save, and the changes magically appear in place of the original version back in Photos. [For that price, I bought it!]

Apple issues second developer betas of macOS Sierra — It’s available through Apple’s Developer Portal. macOS Sierra will bring a variety of enhancements, such as Siri support and optional cloud-based file management features. Some smaller features will include Auto Unlock for Apple Watch owners, and Web-based Apple Pay.

Clean My Mac deal — It cleans, deletes ‘junk’ files that fill up your hard drive and runs diagnostic routines and now it’s on sale for US$27.97 instead of $39.96 (30% off).
[I bought it  I used CMM2 and it was great software.]
