    Great podcast guys. Although I think you are being too reasonable in your criticism on Touch ID on the back. We all know its not happening. It deserves the lambasting you gave it, and more.

    I really don't think Touch ID on the back is happening. But... stones, glass houses, etc. Also, a few years ago, when rumors of the "Retina MacBook Air" were swirling, I was adamant (at least privately to fellow AI staff) that Apple would not ditch MagSafe for USB-C charging, and would not have a single port for both charging and connectivity. Shows what I know.

    The difference this time around is I actually published my prediction and have been outspoken about it. Which means that it will inevitably get shoved back in my face if I happen to be wrong. Hence the efforts to be, as you put it, "reasonable."
