Today, 14th May, I discovered that SMS messages sent from my Simply Remind Me app since 1st March were not being delivered by my SMS provider.

Apple today released the biggest update to macOS in recent years.
It’s so big in fact, it no longer carries the OS X (version 10)
moniker it has carried since the early 2000s. No sur; Big Sur carries an
all-new version 11.
Announced around a year ago, Microsoft today released their brand-new
version of Edge – the default web browser since the Windows 10 release.
The new Edge browser is based on Google’s Chromium project. Chromium
