The “Apostolic Benediction” is only given by the Pope.
Already in 2018, Benedict used the same term in German (“mit meinem apostolischen Segen”) concluding a letter to Cardinal Brandmüller.
Back then, it was claimed that Benedict used the term somewhat loosely although, reportedly, his mind is still sharp
