Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal on Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro, the 64GB model of which is currently down to $500 at Amazon. While this model technically launched in 2017, it still retails for $650, which makes this a $150 discount.
While some users have been able to fulfill Apple's promise of turning the iPad Pro into their primary work computer, most people have not. Taken purely as a tablet, though, this is still a premium device. Though the 10.5-inch Pro doesn't have the thinner bezels, flatter edges and brand new chipset of the latest models, its A10X processor and 4GB of RAM are still more than fast enough for most needs, and its 120Hz display is still bright and ultra-smooth. There's no USB-C port, but there is a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Touch ID button for those who don't want to give those up just yet.
To be clear, Apple's basic 9.7-inch iPad is still the best value for those who just want to do basic tablet things, and the newer iPad Pros are better suited for heavier-duty work. But at this price, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is at least a more realistic buy for consumers who want a higher-end tablet for media consumption, gaming, and some light computing on the side.

Apple pushed software updates for macOS and iOS today. They are minor releases that simply offer a few bug fixes and security updates, with no new features—and there are no new features in any of the beta releases for these versions of the operating systems, either.
iOS 12.1.3 fixes a scrolling bug in Messages, an iPad Pro-specific audio bug, and a graphical error in some photos, and it addresses some CarPlay disconnects experienced by owners of the three new iPhone models released in late 2018. It also fixes two minor bugs related to the company's HomePod smart speaker.
Apple's release notes for iOS 12.1.3 are as follows:

An Arizona state lawmaker has proposed a $20 fee on people who want to view online pornography in order to raise money for building a border wall between Arizona and Mexico.
Arizona House Bill 2444, proposed last week by State Rep. Gail Griffin (R-Hereford), would require makers and distributors of Internet-connected devices to ship such devices with blocking software "that renders a website that displays obscene material inaccessible by default." Under the bill, any Internet user who wants to deactivate the blocking software would have to pay "a onetime deactivation fee of at least $20 to the Arizona Commerce Authority."
The money would be used to establish what the bill calls the "John McCain Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Prevention Fund." That fund would "provide grants to government agencies and private entities that work to uphold community standards of decency for the purpose of strengthening families and developing, expanding or strengthening programs for victims of sex offenses."
