Rusty asks via email: I just finished up episode 386 where you discussed AirTags security and how a user’s iPhone would alert them if an AirTag is nearby. Let’s assume someone wants to keep tabs on a person that has an Android phone, is there anything in place to warn them as well or is it stalking Android users without them knowing unless they find the tag?

Gaetan asks on Twitter: You’re given full control of the next iPhone – design, size, internals, software – the whole bit. Whatcha making? You can even can make a non-pro (broad appeal) version and pro (niche) version. What you got in the pipeline?
