Episode 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.

Episode 476: Please Don’t Squeeze the iPhone

Jason Snell, proprietor of Six Colors, joins Glenn this week to talk about the release of El Capitan and the two new iPhones, all of which Jason tested over a very, very busy couple of weeks and published reviews of earlier this week. El Capitan is ready for business in a way that we can't remember many or any other OS X releases being. We recommend upgrading for all Yosemite users.Meanwhile, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have significant hardware changes that translate into a great new set of experiences. 3D Touch is a winner, in Jason's estimation, while 4K video, faster Touch ID, and overall performance all add up to make both models seem very different from their predecessors, even as they look almost identical.
