Our wallets much lighter than last week, we discuss what new Apple products we’ve ordered and what we’re still waiting for. We also spend a lot more time dissecting the iPhone X and Face ID, and leave room for plenty of follow-up and #askupgrade
Apple unveiled three new iPhones, a new Apple Watch, a 4K Apple TV, and the new Steve Jobs Theater at its September media event. Jason was there and returned home just in time to join with Myke in recapping and analyzing everything that went on at Apple Park.
It’s time for Jason and Myke to reveal their picks for what will happen on stage at the iPhone launch event next week! They draft 12 different things they expect (or hope) to happen at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino next week. Who will pick wisely? We’ll know in less than a week.
Special guest Merlin Mann joins Jason to talk about Apple event rumors, why we care about Apple kremlinology, our approaches to keeping and deleting files in our digital libraries, and Jason's recent 11-day road trip to the total eclipse.
The Upgrade Summer of Fun continues! A special panel of guests convenes to draft our favorite hardware created by Apple. And in an unprecedented installment of Myke at the Movies, John Siracusa joins us to discuss the Final Cut edition of "Blade Runner."
From Automator to Workflow, automation can make regular users (who are definitely not programmers) more productive. This week Jason talks to Myke about why he cares about automation, and then we've got a special automation panel discussion featuring a bunch of special guests. Plus, the Upgrade Summer of Fun begins!
Myke reports in from New York as we discuss a grab bag of Apple news, including a possible cellular Apple Watch, even more details from the HomePod firmware leak, the surprising strength of iPad sales in Apple’s quarterly results, and next year’s crop of emoji.
A HomePod firmware leak may have given us our best look yet at the features of the next iPhone, including face detection. Photos of Apple Park’s aggressively open-plan workspaces lead us to the most spirited discussion of space planning you may ever hear. Plus: The iPod dies, the Apple Watch might get an update, and Jason gets over his Game of Thr…
Does the Mac mini have a place in the Mac line-up, or should it fade into the sunset? Which Mac laptop--MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Escape--is the best choice for a new college student? All this, plus lasers and fireworks, on this week’s edition of Upgrade.
This week Jason is making some big changes in his life, including trying out a to-do app and using his iPad Pro extensively via a cellular network. Myke looks into what’s motivated these changes, and how well they’re working. Plus we discuss emoji, AirPods, and at the very end of the show, “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
