MacBook Pro 16-inch & Apple Card gender bias on the AppleInsider Podcast
This week on the AppleInsider Podcast, Victor and William talk about the new 16-inch MacBook Pro reveal, Phil Schiller's remarks about Chromebooks and the new MacBook Pro keyboard, the rumored iPad Pro and "iPhone SE2," and Facebook using your camera unintentionally.
- The 16-inch MacBook Pro is here! It's got a better keyboard, a better screen, better thermals, and more.
- Phil Schiller has taken to YouTube to talk about the keyboard, and reveals that they asked Pro users what they wanted out of a keyboard. Apple rarely admits to having asked anyone for product development feedback.
- Phil also suggested that Chromebooks are only good for testing in education settings, and if your student doesn't have an iPad, they won't succeed. This is a bad take.
- Senators investigate Goldman Sachs over possible gender discrimination in Apple Card issuance.
- Facebook fixes issue that activated the iPhone rear camera without the user's knowledge.
- Still more rumors about the "iPhone SE2" and iPad Pro, with expected launches in the first half of 2020.
