Brett Burney was in Chicago when we recorded this week’s episode of the In The News podcast, and shortly after we finished recording, he got to see all of the shiny new toys from Apple at the beautiful Apple Store on Michigan Avenue. We talked about those devices during this week’s episode. First, we talked about the iPhone 14 Pro and some of the new features I’ve discovered since I wrote my review earlier this week. Next, we talked about the fascinating Apple Watch Ultra, which went on sale yesterday. We also discussed the new second generation AirPods Pro, which also went on sale yesterday. (Mine arrived just a few minutes after we finished recording, and I’ll have more to say on this product soon.) Finally, we discussed even more useful iOS 16 tips.
In our In the Know segment, Brett discusses seeing full-size cover art on your lock screen in iOS 16, a great new feature. I talk about all of the different status icons that appear at the top of the screen and recommend that folks check out this page on Apple’s website to learn about the ones that they don’t already know. (If any of you out there can honestly say that you already know about every single one of those icons, then I tip my hat to you.)
