The four main stories are a €1.8Bn fine from the European Commission, the end of Apple’s car project, Apple’s new Sports app, and a big encryption upgrade for iMessage. Finally, the show finishes with a rundown of some other quick Apple-related stories that made the news in February including an M3 MacBook Air and updates to Apple’s Windows apps.
