Google's new devices, Solo Loop exchanges, Apple TV competition on the AppleInsider podcast
You can return Solo Loop bands in Apple Stores, there are new iOS 14.2 features, Keychron K2 version 2 is out, Google announces new Pixel phones, and Apple TV+ recommendations, on the AppleInsider Podcast.
With the Apple Watch Series 6 now available, it's time to dig in more on what it's like in real-world use. Plus, Stephen successfully returned the Braided Solo Loop that came with his Watch despite all the previous confusion over how you did or didn't have to also return the Apple Watch too.
More immediately, Google has this week announced several devices including their new flagship phone the Pixel 5. We walk through the differences between the new phones and the recently launched Pixel 4A, and cover the new Chromecast and Nest Audio devices.
The new Chromecast device is priced at just $50 and is tightly integrated with Netflix. Google's new Google TV service will replace Google Play and will be the hub for all content on the new streaming device.
Since the current model Apple TV hardware is fairly dated, we discuss the streaming stick competition and what Apple should do to stay competitive in the near future.
Wes reviewed the second version of Keychron's popular K2 keyboard, and we end with some recommendations of Apple TV+ original content.
