    Apple Silicon updates, Apple Store updates, and more places to get your Apple gear fixed

    Apple Silicon updates, Apple Store updates, and more places to get your Apple gear fixed

    The concern that Apple Silicon will drop support for Thunderbolt 3 has been resolved, as Apple commits to supporting it –– and Intel announces more details of Thunderbolt 4, too. Yet even as that's been settled, there's now another question over whether Apple is looking to axe external GPUs instead.


    In more certain and positive news, Apple is now allowing more independent companies to repair Macs, and other devices. There's more to it than there seems, but it looks as if we are all going to benefit from more and perhaps also more convenient repair firms.

    Hey email app fights Apple’s App Store policy and our WWDC iPadOS wishlist

    After accepting the new email app “Hey” into the App Store, Apple is now denying updates unless the developer adds an in-app subscription. Zoom backtracks and gives all users end-to-end encryption, leaked iMac icon found in an unreleased version of iOS 14, and our hosts list their feature wishlist for the next version of iPadOS.

I'mJustThatGood ,

New Format

First, I have no issue with the new host, Stephen Robles. From the few episodes, he seems to be a knowledgeable person.
However, I thoroughly enjoyed the duo of William and Victor. AI was my go-to each week.
I’m not saying I’ll unsub (let’s not get crazy..), but I may now choose other Apple/tech podcasts first.
Hearing William the other day was nice, but still not the same.
I’m sure I’ll come around to Robles but not quite there at this moment.

Sir James Silva ,

Back on Track

Much improved since Stephen has taken over.

Tizweed ,

What happened to Victor?

New host is fine, but miss the banter of Victor and William. Why not let loyal listeners understand the Change of hosts. Seems a bit like Zoom’s practices...
