In-The-NewsThere was a surprisingly large number of topics to address in this week’s episode of the In the News podcast, even though it has been several weeks since Apple’s big September event, and even though we are still waiting to learn what new products Apple will announce this month.  Brett and I started by discussing the iPhone 14 Plus—the big version of Apple’s less-expensive iPhone—which went on sale yesterday.  We then talked about lots of new features that are coming to iOS 16 in the future.  We addressed lots of Apple Watch topics today, including the improved GPS in the Apple Watch Ultra, how the Apple Watch compares to a similar new product from Bose, and more.  We also discussed Apple’s MagSafe Battery, crash detection in the iPhone 14 and the newest Apple Watch, and other topics.

In our In the Know segment, Brett recommends Calcbot, a calculator app that you can use on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.  I recommend Now Playing Plus for the Apple Watch, which gives you a watch face complication that you can tap to see whatever is playing—a podcast, a song, etc.
