They also explore the compatibility of ChatGPT with the iPhone and Apple Watch. In addition, they discuss the release of iOS 16.4 Beta 1, and whether the HomePod is still relevant, given that it has been five years since its launch and a new 2nd gen model has been released. The possibility of Apple introducing hardware subscriptions is also considered, along with other interesting topics.
