Editor’s Desk: iOS 13.4 beta, “Mythic Quest” now streaming, AirPods shortages and coronavirus

From the new features in iOS 13.4 and other OS betas to Apple TV+’s “Silicon Valley” moment to the impact felt in Apple’s supply chain over the coronavirus outbreak and beyond, this is iDownloadBlog’s regular Editor’s Desk content roundup column for the week of February 3-9, 2020.

Let’s talk iOS

In the latest episode of iDB’s “Let’s Talk iOS” podcast series, our host Sebastien discovers Door Dash while Cody (for a change) is the one ranting about something. Listen to the episode as the two friends cover the week’s topics such as Apple’s monstrous financial quarter, the impact of the coronavirus on the company and, of course, iPad multitasking.

Be sure to follow our hosts @Sebastien and @melvco and don’t forget to send a tweet to @LTiOS_fm if you’d like your question to be answered at the end of next week’s podcast. You can subscribe to “Let’s Talk iOS” on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Overcast or via RSS.
