WE’RE BACK! 

After a short break Alan, Dean, Steve and Karl return to their podcasting duties. Following a rather exciting WWDC keynote, they discuss some of the features that will be coming to iOS, WatchOS, TVOS, MacOS and now iPadOS later this year.

This week Dean returns, joining Alan, Steve and Karl and sharing his experiences and plans for his new home. Apple eliminates a bug that made Apple Music on HomePod better, they also replaced 11 million iPhone batteries in 2018 and Netflix is increasing its prices, again. All this and slightly more on this week’s episode.

This week Karl is on his lonesome, not because we have all split up, but because Karl can’t organise properly. As a result he looks at a few stories from the past week or so, then looks forward to what 2019 might bring from Apple and what we might have to look forward too.
