Let's Talk Apple Logo


This solo show starts with some followups from last month before diving into just a few regulatory and legal stories, some HR and acquisitions news, and a few highlights from Apple’s services and original content. The three main stories are some impressive up-coming accessibility features, Apple’s “Let Loose” iPad event, and Microsoft’s new Copilot+ PCs. The show finishes with a rundown of a few other quick Apple-related stories that made the news in May.
