The show starts with the usual followups and updates on long-running stories. That’s followed by some notable numbers, some Apple-related legal news, and some highlights from Apple’s original content and subscription services. The three main stories are Apple’s new child protection features, continuing pressure on the App Stores, and open discontent among Apple employees. The show ends with a quick rundown of some smaller Apple-related stories that made the news in August.
