Upgrade looks at how technology shapes our lives, from the devices in our hands and pockets to the streaming services that keep us entertained. Hosted by Jason Snell and Myke Hurley.
This week we're wading into follow-up from last week's Apple event. Then we say goodbye to beta season and list our favorite features of the newly shipped iOS 17, iPadOS 17, tvOS 17, and watchOS 10.
Friends in the Couch Cushions
Jason's back from Cupertino and it's time to break down everything he saw at the September 2023 Apple media event: The new titanium-framed iPhone 15 Pro, the pastel iPhone 15, the DoubleTap-enabled Apple Watch, and... green leaves for some but not others?
The 2023 September Event Draft
Jason and Myke preview what will happen at next week's Apple event. What new features will the new iPhones have? How will the Apple Watch transform? And which one of us will harness the heart of a champion, Lionel Messi style, and score the winning goal?
I'm Not a Doctor, I'm an Auditor
With a busy fall looming, Mac analyst Stephen Hackett joins the show to give Jason's computing setup a check-up. And some iPhone rumors suggest the Color Czar may be leaving a lump of Space Black coal in Myke's stocking this year.
I Can Talk About the George Foreman Grill Now
The iMac turns 25, Relay turns 10 (next year in London), print magazines apparently still exist, and listeners have questions about why Apple would ever want to buy Disney.
Step Aside, Bob!
For years, rumors about Apple and Disney combining seemed ridiculous--but in light of Apple's transformation and Disney's difficulties, suddenly it seems a lot more possible. We try to imagine what portions of Disney's business Apple would actually want.
Great for keeping up with Apple

Why is it only tech
You pay more money for the big phone because it has a bigger screen… what are small people supposed to do if they want the pro feature set but in a smaller package? I’m not buying the smaller version because I’m poor, like you’re insinuating, but I’m buying it so it fits into my 5’2” body.
This is my favorite Apple-focused podcast. Myke and Jason are knowledgeable and insightful. They don’t always agree, but they’re respectful and have great chemistry.
