Nano textured OLED iPad Pros, crushing pianos, and Apple's AI push on the AppleInsider Pod...

in General Discussion edited May 10

On this week's episode of the AppleInsider Podcast, you hosts discuss the "Let Loose" event where Apple revealed a new iPad lineup, the M4 processor, and new accessories.

Apple surprised us all with an M4 processor in a set of iPad Pros, but it seems people were more surprised about an ad crushing various instruments into an iPad. There are new iPad Air models, including a 13-inch option, upgraded iPad Pros, an aluminum Magic Keyboard, and Apple Pencil Pro.

The tandem OLED display and optional nano texture option has seen a lot of discussion since the announcement. People are concerned about the display's durability and feel, but hands-on experiences suggest it feels like normal glass.

Your hosts discuss what they ordered and what they're most excited about trying with the new products. There is a sense that WWDC will contain more surprises for iPad, but we won't find out until June.

Bonus: AppleInsider+ subscribers will hear about Wes and William's first iPads, their journey through iPad usage, and what they use today. Subscribe via Patreon or Apple Podcasts to hear AppleInsider+.

    Apple shouldn’t have apologized. They made an ad. 

    You have real estate that destroys established houses - sometimes with belongings inside. You have movies that destroy all kinds of things. You have little turds vandalizing apple products to see if they bend, you have so many things where something they existed doesn’t anymore. 

    Heck, you have so called activists ruining actual art defacing property, etc. to make s “point.” 

    Here, apple succinctly shows how all of these great creative things aren’t really necessary anymore because they are almalgated into the iPad. Thst was the point. It wasn’t as if you can’t buy or use a piano,  paint, or swishy face balls anymore. 

    Get a grip people.
