Podcast 552: Working on my Night Shift  

Apple releases iOS 10.3, a major and minor release, which adds a lot of little features, and macOS 10.12.4, which brings Night Shift to the Mac. Glenn Fleishman and Leah Yamshon talk about new features, follow-up security and conflict minerals stories, and explain how an iCloud breach is almost certainly not that on this week’s episode.

Podcast 551: Knocking the Air out of the iPad lineup  

Apple announced a new, cheaper iPad (http://www.macworld.com/article/3183131/ios/apples-new-ipad-lineup-slashes-prices-the-ipad-air-and-ipad-mini-storage-options.html), as well as a red iPhone 7 (http://www.macworld.com/article/3183288/apple-phone/apple-goes-bold-with-red-iphone-7-on-sale-march-24.html) and more. That Clips app (http://www.macworld.com/article/3183510/iphone-ipad/apples-new-clips-app-is-like-a-simplified-imovie-for-viral-videos.html) sounds cool too, like a crossover between Vine and Snapchat.

Podcast 550: Accessibility and superpowers  

A great article by David Pogue (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/david-pogue-on-iphone-voiceover-163733668.html) has us thinking about accessibility (http://www.macworld.com/article/3178690/ios/accessibility-features-in-macos-and-ios-that-everyone-should-try.html), and the iPad rumors (http://www.macworld.com/article/3171076/ipad/report-apple-will-debut-new-ipad-pro-lineup-at-march-event.html) won't quit.

Podcast 549: Leaks and hacks  

WikiLeaks says that the CIA can crack pretty much anything (http://www.macworld.com/article/3177418/security/wikileaks-cia-document-dump-shows-agency-can-compromise-android-tvs.html), and that's not the only security-related story to talk about (http://www.macworld.com/article/3176925/security/how-to-cope-with-the-recent-flood-of-security-failures.html).

Podcast 548: Ride the Lightning  

Look, getting rid of Lightning for USB-C in the next iPhone just makes sense (http://www.macworld.com/article/3126154/hardware/iphone-8-rumors.html), even though the timing is awkward. And Glenn knows an astonishing amount of useful information about surge protectors (http://www.macworld.com/article/3172540/home-tech/best-surge-protector.html).

Podcast 547: WWDC heads south to San Jose  

Apple's developers conference is moving back to San Jose (http://www.macworld.com/article/3170814/tech-events/wwdc-dates-announced-apple-is-taking-its-annual-conference-to-san-jose-in-june.html), but before that happens, we might see a March event with new iPads and even a red iPhone (http://www.macworld.com/article/3171076/ipad/report-apple-will-debut-new-ipad-pro-lineup-at-march-event.html).

Podcast 546: Would you AR in the car?  

Tim Cook can't stop hinting about AR (http://www.macworld.com/article/3168043/government/tim-cook-augmented-reality-is-the-future-and-fake-news-is-ruining-everything.html), and Susie's theory is that he's really talking about Project Titan. Elsewhere, we weigh in on the rumor of a $1,000 iPhone (http://www.macworld.com/article/3126154/hardware/iphone-8-rumors.html), and point and laugh at Planet of the Apps (http://www.macworld.com/article/3169886/streaming-hardware/apples-original-tv-shows-are-almost-ready-for-prime-time.html).

Podcast 545: Assault on batteries  

We did extensive testing on the new MacBook Pro's so-called battery problems (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157392/laptop-computers/tested-the-truth-behind-the-macbook-pros-terrible-battery-life.html), discuss what you should do when a battery goes bad (http://www.macworld.com/article/3162109/consumer-electronics/beware-the-bulgy-battery-lithium-ion-batteries-removed-from-laptops-can-still-be-dangerous.html), and dump on HomeKit (http://www.macworld.com/article/3159652/home-tech/the-state-of-the-apple-homekit-market-apples-smart-home-ecosystem-has-yet-to-coalesce.html).

Podcast 544: Unpacking Apple's position on immigration  

Tim Cook reminded Apple employees as well as the Trump administration that the company wouldn't exist without immigration (http://www.macworld.com/article/3162998/leadership-management/tim-cook-apple-would-not-exist-without-immigration.html). Elsewhere, we find our AirPods and talk about what theater mode should do.

Podcast 543: What's up with WhatsApp  

After a security-focused podcast last week, we turn to...more security stories, like the so-called backdoor in WhatsApp (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157458/security/whatsapp-vulnerability-could-expose-messages-to-prying-eyes-report-claims.html) and how to keep those communications safe (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157562/security/the-backdoor-that-never-was-and-how-to-improve-your-security-with-whatsapp.html). And then Meitu got a lot of flack on the Android side, but Glenn can explain why iOS users shouldn't be as concerned (http://www.macworld.com/article/3160024/security/meitus-photo-effects-app-tracks-users-without-disclosing-enough.html).

Macworld Postcast 542: They’re always listening  

You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in the world with an electronic device right now who isn't concerned about a combination of criminal, troll, and overreaching government trying to crack their security and vacuum up their data. For some practical advice, host Glenn Fleishman is joined by Jonathan Zdziarski, an iPhone forensics expert with extensive experience working with law enforcement, who is also the developer of the file-access-monitoring app, Little Flocker. Glenn and Jonathan start with a brief follow-up on the Consumer Reports' battery testing revision, and then discuss many ways of securing different aspects of your computing and networking setup.

Podcast 541: The iPhone turns 10  

Susie and Glenn reminisce about the very first iPhone (http://www.macworld.com/article/3155480/iphone-ipad/the-iphone-turns-10-apple-ceo-tim-cook-promises-the-best-is-yet-to-come.html), geek out over new iPad rumors (http://www.macworld.com/article/3155753/ios/apple-will-reportedly-launch-3-new-ipad-models-in-spring-2017.html), and revisit the weirdest Consumer Reports review ever (http://www.macworld.com/article/3156350/macs/apple-resolves-the-macbook-pro-battery-life-issues-found-in-consumer-reports-testing.html).

Podcast 540: Happy new year?  

It's 2017, and we're happy to be alive...but. Troubling news abounds with weird MacBook Pro battery tests (http://www.macworld.com/article/3153407/macs/macbook-pro-is-the-first-apple-laptop-to-lack-a-recommendation-from-consumer-reports.html), underwhelming Apple Watch rumors (http://www.macworld.com/article/3154227/wearables/rumor-says-apple-watch-series-3-to-bring-battery-performance-gains-little-else.html), and a lot of concern over whether Apple's losing its touch (https://chuqui.com/2017/01/apples-2016-in-review/).

Podcast 539: AirPods rock, but Siri still struggles  

Susie's AirPods review (http://www.macworld.com/article/3151535/iphone-ipad/airpods-review-they-sound-great-but-siri-holds-them-back.html) is live, and they work like a charm, but unfortunately highlight the divide between first- and third-party apps. Tim Cook says Apple still loves the Mac (http://www.macworld.com/article/3152072/macs/tim-cook-reaffirms-apples-commitment-to-the-mac-in-response-to-growing-doubt.html), but this report on Bloomberg (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-20/how-apple-alienated-mac-loyalists) tells another story. And Apple owns the smartwatch category (https://www.aboveavalon.com/notes/2016/12/15/the-elephant-in-the-smartwatch-room), but is it enough of a category?

Podcast 537: Amazon Go or no?  

A convenience store where you just walk in and take things sounds pretty futuristic and cool—unless you're already sick of being watched the entire time you shop.

Podcast 536: Made in America  

A grab-bag of topics this week includes President-elect Trump's wish for Apple to build iPhones in the U.S.—and how Apple is responding so far.

Podcast 535: So long to AirPort?  

Rumor has it, Apple is getting out of the router game—for good, or just in preparation for a video streamer slash router slash home hub?

Podcast 534: The Mac book that isn't a computer  

Apple's new design book annoyed us greatly, and so has Apple's attitude lately. But Susie's still really into the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Podcast 533: The Mac of today, the Mac of tomorrow  

Susie's a little underwhelmed by the Escape Edition of the MacBook Pro, but more bullish on the Touch Bar. Glenn warns that USB-C isn't as simple as it seems, and wonders about the next big Mac innovation.
