    When Activating an iPhone Goes Wrong – The TouchArcade Show #467

    In this week’s episode we talk about the brand spanking new iPhone 12 I just received in the mail! And… can’t use because it gets stuck in activation. Apple: It just works! Until it doesn’t! Then you’re screwed! We also talk about the latest Apple drama surrounding them finding a way to pull the Stadium app, which allowed iOS users to access and play Google Stadia on their devices, from the App Store. We also hit on some of the other big news stories of the week including a few major game updates and GameClub’s first foray into porting a PC game to mobile.

    The iPhone 12 Event Extravaganza – The TouchArcade Show #466

    The iPhone 12 Event Extravaganza – The TouchArcade Show #466

    In this week’s TouchArcade Show we totally break down Apple’s big “Hi, Speed" event from Tuesday where they unveiled the new iPhone 12 models. Oh, and… a mini HomePod. That’s a thing too. We talk about how I made a cardboard cutout iPhone 12 Mini to see if it was the right choice for me (spoiler: it isn’t) as well as the merits of splurging for a Pro model over a regular old non-Pro iPhone. We quickly hit on some of the big mobile gaming stories of the week at the end, too!

    Nothing Noteworthy Happened Last Friday – The TouchArcade Show #465

    In this week’s episode of The TouchArcade Show we talk about how we didn’t miss anything important by recording on Thursday instead of Friday last week. Nope, nothing important happened, that I’m aware of. We then talk extensively about Microsoft xCloud which is now heading to iOS via a web app, and then share our thoughts on the state of Apple today and if the customer experience really is their driving force anymore or not. We then semi-quickly go through a bunch of other interesting stories in the world of mobile gaming from this past week.

    Widget Mania! – The TouchArcade Show #464

    We hit the airwaves a bit early this week for The TouchArcade Show #464 since I’m taking today off to celebrate my anniversary. So, if something earth-shattering happened today and we didn’t touch on it… that’s why. Knowing my luck Nintendo will release Super Mario 3D All-Stars on iOS today or something and I’ll miss it. But just because we’re a day early doesn’t mean we don’t have A TON to talk about, and we hit on the interesting Stadium app that launched this week and allows you to play Google Stadia on iOS and ponder the future of other streaming services that might go a similar route. Then we try to understand the strange world of iOS widgets before hitting on all the other big news of the week.

Interesting, Informative, and Awesome

The TA guys know iDevice gaming and know how to make a consistently interesting and informative podcast. I've been listening for almost a decade, and continue to enjoy it every week. I also support the Patreon.

I wanted to get this updated review posted, because the first reviews should show you all how awesome your show is :-)
