The Apple Event entitled Unleashed occurred this past week and yes it had mostly Mac announcements there were some other items announced that we discuss

They announced new colors for the HomePod Mini including yellow, orange, and Blue that seem to match iMacs but the colors are off.

Apple quietly announced a new polishing Cloth for devices especially for Apple displays. For $19.99 we debate: is this a worthy item to purchase? You Probably Won't Be Able to Get Apple's New Polishing Cloth in Time for the Holidays

Apple opened up the event by talking about a new Apple Music plan called Voice Plan at $4.99 per month. But there is a catch: you can only use Siri to ask for songs, playlists, and more. The new Apple Music Voice plan costs $5 a month and is a good option for the casual listener
