    Thanks for the Palette cleanser “iPhone 13 Tips…” I have been enjoying “sounds” for several weeks; I prefer “Streams” (reminds me of where we camp at Sheep’s Creek in King’s Canyon, near Yosemite.) The example “Techmeout” used was on the iPhone. But I use it on my HomePod Mini at bedtime. “Hey Siri, play stream sounds.” with the added benefit of “Hey Siri, stop sounds in 30 minutes” (It also reminds you to go to the bathroom first.)
