    New iPad Air, new iPad Pro, and a new Apple Pencil Pro on the AppleInsider podcast

    We've been waiting for so long to get updated iPads, and now we've got two new iPad Air and two new iPad Pro models -- but the question is whether they were worth the wait, or they're just spec-bump updates with faster processors and better screens yet nothing truly new.

    Apple's new EU rules, Apple ID's new bug, and new iPads are close, on the AppleInsider Podcast

    Small developers in the EU now have plenty to thank Apple about, while some users worldwide have a couple of gripes about bugs in Apple ID. Plus emulators are a hit, there are so many promising leaks about iOS 18, and of course we're nearing the launch of new iPads.

Getting better…

App Recommendation: Fruit Stand. It’s an Apple Device collection manager for only $5

Update: I’ve revised my opinion. I think that as time goes on, the chemistry will get better. Will it be the same as Stephen and William? No, but it’ll be better than the first episode after Stephen left. It won’t be the same, but maybe that’s ok. Also, thanks for finally using a unique photo for episode art.

Original Review: Back before Stephen left, I really enjoyed this podcast. Stephen and William had great chemistry, and Stephen and Wes wasn’t bad either. But William and Wes just has never had the same chemistry. Whenever Stephen couldn’t record an episode for one reason or another, the William+Wes episodes were always not as good, but it was fine in small, very infrequent doses. But now with Stephen gone, it’s slowly getting more and more uninteresting. If Wes would let William talk more, and if they’d lighten up a bit, I think it’d be better, but without much connection between William, Wes, and the listener, it’s getting harder to listen to.

Wes

Likes the smell of his own farts. Dude is nuts. Says iPad is a naked robotic core. Can’t run millions of apps, can run macOS.

I like the show, but I’m not loving the audio quality. I’m not sure if it’s the mic’s or the mixing, but sometimes the audio quality forces me to turn it off.
