AppleInsider editors Victor Marks and Mike Wuerthele discuss:

  • Apple releases iOS and Apple Watch betas, removes and then restores i- prefix to iBooks, and Mike has a comment about using Apple Watch with HomePod
  • Apple's Workflow app was updated, and despite it seeming like a minor update based on version number, there are some cool features. Mike is more Mac-based, so Victor talks about how he and Neil use it.
  • Things, the to-do app, got an update, and we talk about it as well, especially since it works well with Workflow. This leads to a discussion about task management apps in general.
  • Supply chain rumors! Rumors say that the notch is going to go away on all the new phones. Victor and Mike both suspect this is a little soon, that Apple probably wants to spread the sensors across more devices before they remove the notch.
  • California is the latest to introduce Right to Repair legislation. Victor and Mike talk about the background on this and what the impacts would be on Apple product design.
  • Victor interviews Adam Justice of ConnectSense, and we talk HomeKit, its history, products, and HomePod. Adam was really interesting to speak with.

    Please make a transcript of podcasts available. I read far faster than people talk. Never figured out why podcasts exist.

    We've examined a few options, but none of them are cost-effective from a labor perspective, or accurate when transcribed by an algorithm. They exist for the same reason talk radio can and does.

    Each his own, regarding podcasts. I make a few, I consume a few -- but see your point.

    That makes no sense though, Most people can read faster than they talk but a Podcast is and will always be people talking.

    Allow me to explain.

    Why do radio shows exist? Why do people listen to sports radio, talk radio, church radio, or any other form of radio?

    Now, instead of being required to tune into a radio broadcast at a specific moment in time, on a specific station, what if you could download it to a portable audio player and time-shift it, listen to it on your own schedule, pausing and resuming at your convenience?

    This is essentially old-timey early-days radio, reborn without requiring an FCC license to broadcast. Our listenership can be worldwide and listen on their own time, rather than be required to be local and having to tune in at the appointed time. That's why podcasting exists.
