Notable apps and updates: September 24

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they deserve mention. Here are today’s picks.

iOS

Diego Resnik has updated iCarMode, an app specifically designed for drivers, to version 6.0.

It provides an enlarged user interface to act as a car dashboard. The dashboard features a music player with Apple Music and Spotify integration, a way to call favorite contacts, radio player, shortcuts for your favorite apps or favorite Siri shortcuts, parked car finder, find nearby places & more. Version 6.0 adds Podcasts player integration.

iCar Mode 6 costs US$2.99 and is available at the Apple App Store. It requires iOS 12 or later. 

Apple has released an iOS 12.5.5 update for older iPhones and iPads that are not able to run iOS 15. 

It’s a security update. It can be downloaded over-the-air by going to the Settings app, tapping on “General,” and selecting the “Software Update” option.
