New iPhone SE, COVID-19 contact tracing, and Mac utility roundup on the AppleInsider Podcast

Apple's 2020 iPhone SE, contact tracing, and more Mac utilities

An updated 4.7-inch iPhone SE, Apple and Google team up to develop contact tracing technology to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and our hosts go in-depth on more of their favorite Mac utilities.

Starting at just $399, Apple has released its anticipated successor to the iPhone SE. The new model comes with Touch ID, a 4.7-inch screen, and uses the latest A13 processor as found in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

While the Coronavirus pandemic continues, Apple and Google have teamed up to develop contact tracing technology that will allow both iPhones and Android devices to aid in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Both companies are already facing questions over privacy concerns, but together have stated that "privacy, transparency, and consent are of utmost importance." Plus participation in the contact tracing will be optional.

Then as a follow-up to last week's Mac utility feature, our hosts present listener suggestions and list even more of their favorites. Send in your favorite Mac utilities by tweeting at us and using the hashtag #aipodcast
