Essential Apple Show 22: We All Know Fitbit Counts That.

Why I’m returning my iPhone 7 after a week, Apple Arm based Macbooks, Nvidia and that listing for Apple based engineers, drill gate, why I’m not wearing the apple watch series 2 and Apple takes over Batmans lair. Not bad for a show with no notes.

Special Show notes:

This week the entire show was edited with nothing more than my trusty iPhone 6 and Ferrite for iOS. A huge thanks to Canis from wooji-juice.com for the support over the last 2 days of editing. I was able to strip silence and tighten the audio just as I would in Audacity right from my iOS device.

In this episode of the Essential Apple podcast we catch up with him to see how interesting life has been since the release of his app.

Essential Apple PodCast 006 – Marks 1Revalation

We were going to go WWDC prediction bonkers but just before going live Apple announced the subscription plans for the App store. So we talk about that, Mark Gurman, press expectations, our expectations, worth a chirp and some interesting listener comments.

After yet another password breach where some lucky soul thought they bagged themselves a Amazon Prime subscription, it was finally time to put 1Password through it’s paces. The end result.. Just get it because it turns out I’m not the only fan of it on the show.

More show notes at EssentialApple.com

  • Thanks to the TechFan and MyMac Podcast for the mention.
  • Marking Gurman on a grade. We discuss (sort of) his past and present predictions.
  • WWDC what are we most looking forward to and hoping for.
