Still months away from the launch of the iPhone 8, Cody and Sebastien talk the latest rumors to death, from a new stacked logic board design, to larger battery, to the rumored $1,000+ price tag, to wireless charging, to OLED display, to what’s included in the box. And when you start putting all these pieces together, it kind of makes sense. Listen along as the guys describe what could very well be the iPhone X.
As Joe becomes a regular of the show, the guys discuss the latest developments in the jailbreaking community, and specifically focus on the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.2. What devices are supported? Is it safe to use? What is the process? Many questions are being answered to help listeners figure out whether or not they can go forward with the jailbreak. Other topics include a recently released iOS 9 jailbreak for 32-bit devices, and Apple TV jailbreaknews.
Cody and Sebastien play armchair analysts as they go over Apple’s record Q1 financial results, and discuss various points of interests, including iPad, and the new hot services category. Sebastien is happy he can finally hide that Spotlight icon in the Menu Bar, and he’s ecstatic when he finds out Cody has been an Alfred user for years too.
In the absence of reliable figures from Apple, it is not much more than conjecture to say that AirDrop is likely a feature often neglected by the average iOS user. The gut feeling persists though, simply based on day to day observations, and it is a tenable position to take until proven wrong by Cupertino or another reputable source. The file transfer protocol is indeed handy for the transfer of heavier media files (e.g. videos, photo albums), but often only becomes relevant to us when we for example have upgraded to a new device.
Next to sheer transmission speed however, there are other notable areas where AirDrop has the clear edge when it comes to sharing all kinds of material from your iPhone. The AirDrop icon has now fully permeated the sharing tab in iOS 10’s user interface and that is for a good reason: it is without fail going to be more nimble than iMessage, Mail or other contenders, often actually skipping steps that would throttle the process elsewhere. Such being the case, here are some unique scenarios where AirDrop excels on your iPhone and why you should try to embrace the feature more regularly. Read More
After accidentally talking about Siri, the guys finally focus on the actual show notes to talk more about how Consumer Reports MacBook Pro battery life tests still appear out of whack. Cody and Sebastien also discuss Apple’s push into original TV and movie content creation, and the fake problem of employee retention at 1 Infinite Loop.
The ability to store and play podcasts on Apple Watch is one of many features advocated for regarding future watchOS updates, but so far it has fallen on deaf ears at Apple. With the cries for podcasts on Watch slowly reaching fever pitch, developers have taken matters into their own hands and released a fully functional podcast app that enables the transfer of your favorite subscriptions from iPhone to Apple Watch.
The app goes by the name WatchPlayer and (while moody at times) gives a solid account of itself, effectively beating Apple to the punch in the podcast race. Find out below how the data transfer is realized, where it trumps Apple’s stock apps and what areas of WatchPlayer could do with some attention. Read More
As the iPhone turns 10, Cody and Sebastien reminisce about when they got their first original iPhone, and what this device has meant for the tech industry, and for people in general. After looking back at the past, the guys look forward to the future with some interestingrumored features for the next iPhone.
