AppleInsider editor Victor Marks and The Verge editor Vlad Savov discuss:

  • Cameras. Vlad believes that Apple is the best in usability terms, but that the computational photography especially for low-light is better on some Android phones. Victor gets Vlad to talk about why DxOMark ratings aren't helpful.
  • Apple released a video entitled, "The Underdogs". Vlad and Victor both have concerns about what it says about Apple's view of work, overwork, and crunch time.
  • We're card-carrying geeks... but will we carry the Apple Card?
  • Apple's ECG feature launched for Europe and almost immediately, helped a wearer identify atrial fibrillation that had gone unnoticed. Vlad talks about step counting accuracy, and is concerned about false positives. Note: calibrate your Apple Watch for steps, and it's highly accurate.
