Podcast 565: So long (for now) and thanks for all the Mbps  

Roman and Glenn reminisce over the iPhone's introduction 10 years ago, and discuss Roman's review of the new iMac. We also advise not installing iOS 11's public beta quite yet—for most people—and look at Virgin Mobile's iPhone-only plan, as well as go googly eyes over augmented reality examples with ARKit. Finally, we're heading out on hiatus for retooling, and Glenn says, "Thank you, everyone, and see you on the interwebs!"

Podcast 564: Take a trip to Kaby Lake  

A potpourri of news this week, from Tim Cook urging that schools teach coding to every student, Scott Forstall's interview about the creation of the iPhone, and new iOS 11 features, including object recognition and augmented reality (AR), that will bump up camera and other third-party apps' capabilities. Roman also critiques the new MacBook Pro models, which have a lot to offer.

Podcast 563: Our iOS goes to 11  

Apple confirms its working on autonomous automobiles, but is it making a car or a component? Roman and Glenn discuss Apple's new podcast analytics, and then go through the large number of improvements scheduled for iOS 11, announced last week at WWDC. It's going to feel like a very different system—for the better.

Podcast 562: Hi, Sierra!  

Apple unloaded a pile of information at its WWDC keynote this week: the long-awaited and awkwardly named HomePod, a new iPad Pro model, upgraded Mac laptops and iMacs, and details about three of its four OSes—tvOS didn't get much love. Roman and Glenn focus on the bigger picture of this packed keynote and go in depth on the HomePod, as well as a brief discussion of Macs and macOS. Next week, we dig into the iPad Pro and iOS, and everything else learned at WWDC.

Podcast 561: WWDC you soon  

Apple has four OSes and we should hear about them all at the Worldwide Developers Conference starting next week. Roman and Glenn preview their fervent wishes, especially about the underdeveloped Apple TV and tvOS. They also talk about the Galaxy S8 camera compared to the iPhone 7s, Google Photos versus iCloud Photo Library, and how Thunderbolt 3 won the interface war.

Podcast 560: By the Non-Pricking of My Thumb  

Could a non-invasive wearable blood-glucose monitor that links to an Apple Watch help change people's lives and lead to better avoidance of diabetes onset? Roman and Glenn discuss this, along with the potential of new laptops at WWDC, Today at Apple, and the odd introduction of an Android switcher campaign when new phones are just a few months away.

Podcast 559: Siri gets company  

Apple invests $200 million into Corning for advanced glass manufacture in the U.S., WannaCrypt hit Windows users (but also could affect Macs with Boot Camp or virtual machines), and Siri gets crowded by Alexa and Google Assistant. Susie and Glenn talk that plus research showing an Apple Watch can detect irregular heartbeats 97 percent as well as dedicated medical equipment.

Podcast 558: Apple's billion-dollar move  

Apple could spend a billion dollars on break room snacks and not feel a pinch, but the company is instead digging deep to seed an investment fund for advanced U.S. manufacturing. Which is pretty tasty too. Show notes: http://www.macworld.com/column/mwpodcast/

Podcast 557: Pondering the Siri Speaker and watchOS 4

Podcast 556: Uber my dead body  

Uber got in some hot water with Apple, but it was all handled behind the scenes, while Glenn thinks that users should have been alerted. Show notes: http://www.macworld.com/article/3192706/podcast-556-uber-my-dead-body

Podcast 555: Imagining the iPhone 8 and a Mac Pro that works  

We're going to be sick of the next iPhone before it's even formally announced, aren't we? Well, there's always the parlor game of trying to figure out how the Mac Pro lost its way. Join us, won't you? Show notes: http://www.macworld.com/article/3191284/podcast-555

Podcast 554: The cheaper iPad is gold, baby, gold  

If preferring the new iPad (http://www.macworld.com/article/3188588/ipad/ipad-2017-review-with-a-stripped-down-ipad-for-329-you-may-not-need-to-go-pro.html) to the iPad Pro makes Susie an amateur, she can live with that. Show notes: http://www.macworld.com/article/3189684/podcast-554

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).
