R5C8 can only be <4>
R7C9 is the only square in row 7 that can be <1>
R1C7 is the only square in row 1 that can be <1>
R8C1 is the only square in row 8 that can be <1>
R5C2 is the only square in row 5 that can be <1>
R6C4 is the only square in column 4 that can be <4>
R5C5 is the only square in column 5 that can be <3>
R3C6 is the only square in column 6 that can be <2>
Intersection of column 4 with block 2. The value <6> only appears in one or more of squares R1C4, R2C4 and R3C4 of column 4. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 2. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 2 cannot contain this value.
   R1C5 - removing <6> from <5689> leaving <589>
Squares R1C5, R2C4 and R2C5 in block 2 form a simple locked triplet. These 3 squares all contain the 3 possibilities <589>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the block.
   R1C4 - removing <589> from <56789> leaving <67>
   R3C4 - removing <5> from <567> leaving <67>

R6C2 is the only square in row 6 that can be <3>
R7C8 is the only square in row 7 that can be <3>
R1C1 is the only square in column 1 that can be <8>
Squares R8C5 and R8C8 in row 8 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <68>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.
   R8C6 - removing <8> from <478> leaving <47>
