◉ This week, Apple introduced a listing for the 2023 watchOS subsystem in its Bluetooth product database. Although unsurprising, the listing indicates that Apple is preparing to release new Apple Watch models this September, as it does every year.

◉ Elon Musk stated that the option to block people on Twitter will be deleted as a feature in the future, because it does not make sense and it does not make sense. This decision came in response to a question about the difference between muting and blocking on the platform. While muting prevents users from seeing your content, blocking prevents others from interacting with you. Musk intends muting to be the only way to filter content, but blocking will still be available for direct messages. This change may allow spammers and bullies to interact with users who may otherwise be blocked by them. If someone is muted, they can still follow, view, and interact with your content, even though their replies are hidden. The proposed removal of the blocking feature has faced criticism, and there remains uncertainty about when or if this change will be implemented.

And help you with it, and if it robbed you of your life and got busy with it, there is no need for it.
