On this week's episode of The Mac & Forth Show, hosts Alan, Dean, Steve, and Karl discuss the latest updates and rumours in the Apple universe. Apple has released updates for macOS Sonoma and HomePod, enhancing stability and user experience. Meanwhile, iOS sees a minor update with version 17.1.1. In hardware news, Apple has confirmed there will be no Apple Silicon 27-inch iMac, suggesting a focus on the 24-inch model for upgraders. Speculation about new iPads and AirPods not being ready for a 2023 launch is also on the table, alongside Macs now being able to detect water in USB-C ports to prevent damage. In response to the EU Digital Markets Act, Apple will comply with regulations allowing side-loading and alternative payment systems. Developers express frustration with Apple's Feedback Assistant, calling for a boycott due to its inefficiency. And in a lighter note, Apple Music celebrates Taylor Swift as the Artist of the Year for 2023. All this, and slightly more on this week’s episode.
