Beta time Apple released iOS 13.5 beta 2 yesterday it doesn’t seem like there is any real changes and its probably going to be released soon. BTF: last release before iOS14?
Apple announced the iPhone SE yesterday and we discuss our initial thoughts, and where we thing Apple is going with this new mode. AppleCare will be only $79 and we look at comparing with the other models. This is not the SE model of old. BTF: great specs, great price. Still lacking on some of the internals of other iPhones, but a great device to recommend if you prefer TouchID/smaller devices.
Barry has the new 12.9” 2020 iPad Pro and he gives us a review and how he likes it so far.
BTF: key strengths: cursor/trackpad control - for editing documents it has been really handy, especially when using documents in programs such as Pages or Word.
It will become more valuable when I don’t have to take my hand off the keyboard and can ‘thumb’ the trackpad similar to the MacBook Pros. Still, some keyboard commands may be preferred, but having the option makes it all the more powerful.
The AR features are not something that I use too much, but with the AR features on Apple’s websites, it seems much more stable than previous models.
The “measure” app is also more solid.
Dave was lucky enough to receive a Sonos Move speaker for his work anniversary. He has had it a few weeks and is going to give his review.
