The show starts with a few followups from previous shows, a few quick regulation stories, a few short legal stories, just one Apple HR story, and some highlights from Apple’s services and original content divisions. The four main stories are Apple’s new savings account, the noticeable rise in malware targeting the Mac, Apple & Google’s new anti-stalking standard for trackers, and Apple’s Q2 2023 earnings call. The show finishes with a quick rundown of some other Apple-related stories that made the news in April.
