Apple has revealed their new devices so Alan, Dean and Karl return to discuss what they thought of the event and all the new kit revealed. We also now know how Apple will handle its upcoming services consisting of Apple Arcade and Apple TV+. We also discover is any of the new tech will be tempting the lads to raid their credit cards on Friday. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
After a short break Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to look ahead to the upcoming announcement from Apple and delve into some of the recent rumours that have surfaced. There’s also news of Apple possibly assisting independent repair businesses and Apple announces a repair program for some Apple Watches with cracked screens. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
Following recent reports that you could stain your new Apple Credit card if you did anything weird, like putting the card in a wallet or your jean pockets, a few companies appear to have stepped up to help you keep that titanium card free of stains...Phew!
Just before recording last week’s episode of Mac & Forth I mentioned that I had planned some relaxation during my up coming week off. I thought, like always, I’d spend a few days heading into London and visiting a few pubs I like (The Bierschenke has to be sampled) and maybe visit the odd Apple store.
Fortunately we devised a better plan than just visiting a couple of Apple stores. Why not try and visit all of the London Apple stores (within the M25) in one day using only public transport?
Another week means it’s time for another show. Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to discuss how Ikea plans to invest heavily in home automation over the coming years. Disney announces the launch date for their streaming service and the UK isn’t getting it, yet. Apple own streaming service budget has ballooned. Two new Apple Watch variants may be arriving soon. Apple Arcade appears with an early access program and a speculative price point and Karl is finally happy his OSMO Pocket plays nice with his iPad Pro. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
On this week’s episode Alan, Steve and Karl discuss some of the ‘hacks’ from this year’s Black Hat conference along with Apple’s $1 million bug bounty. They also look into the recent replacement battery controversy and the recent teaser trailer for the upcoming The Morning Show on AppleTV+. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
This weekend I found myself at a bit of a loose end. It was too early to start drinking, without admitting I might have a problem anyway, and it was also raining outside negating the idea of going for a walk. Unable to find anything that really caught my attention on YouTube I thought I’d dust off the OBS app on my Mac and try a Facebook live video.
This week Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to go through the week’s Apple and tech-related news. Apple SIRI monitoring put on hold, the new Apple Card invites start to arrive for a few, we discover just what ASMR is, Disney reveals more Disney+ details and a scam app returned to the app store. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.
