Apple's Spring Event has come and gone, and now the picks must be graded. Will Stephen remain in power as the Keynote Chairman? Can Myke gain access to both Twitter accounts, or is Federico poised for a comeback?
Apple is holding an event next week, so the guys have gathered their picks and are entering the Battlefield of the Ricky.
The Keynote Chairman title is on the line.
Stephen cleans out the Connected inbox, Federico questions the meaning of an idea and Myke checks out a new task manager. Then, a discussion about the ramifications of technology reminding us of painful past events or encounters.
After an explanation on how feedback is best sent, Federico and Myke discuss their thoughts on TickTick, the (potential) future of the music industry, the announcement of WWDC 2021, and whether Connected listeners prefer Dark Mode or Light Mode.
After follow-up about feelings, Ticci explains what's going on with links to previously-made Shortcuts and Stephen marks 20 years of OS X. Then, Myke leads a focus group about the future of Apple in the home and the guys all inspect a task manager that has recently popped up on one of their home screens.
Stephen is accused of flip-flopping, while Myke has updated some firmware. Federico has reviewed a new iPad desktop stand and then the three descend into a Round Robin of iPhone features that wouldn't exist if Apple was starting over in 2021.
What's follow-up and what's a topic? Why has Apple chickened out with a change in iOS 14.5? Who wants a new iPad Pro? How many secrets have been kept between the co-hosts? Is this an annoying way to write a show description?
Myke tries to get through some iPhone rumors but the others keep joking around about model names. Meanwhile, there's big news for a couple of iOS apps. Stephen needs to deal with the problem brewing in his photos library and Federico goes missing for a brief time.
This week, Federico gets what he wants, but also doesn't. Myke tries out Hey, but only kinda. Also, are there new apps anymore?
This week, Stephen refuses to be pigeonholed, Federico talks about how MagSafe could be used on new accessories and Myke doesn't want to talk about folding iPhones, but then does. Also on the list of topics: failing Apple watches, #GreenGate and blankets.
