The show starts with a look at some interesting Apple-related numbers and statistics released during July before moving on to the legal news and some followups from last month’s show (mainly Apple Music related). The three main stories for the month are Apple’s 3rd quarter earnings, the new iPod Touch, and a collection of security-related stories. The show finishes with a quick roundup of some other short Apple-related stories that broke in July.
