iPhone 13 reviews, iOS 15 features, new Safari extensions for iPad on the AppleInsider podcast
On the AppleInsider Podcast, your hosts discuss the initial iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro reviews, highlight new features in iOS 15 including the best Safari extensions, and Tim Cook promises to crack down on leaks.
Initial reviews for the iPhone 13 lineup are out and many report significant improvements to battery life and camera quality. Notable travel photographer Austin Mann took the new iPhone 13 Pro on a trip to Tanzania testing the new camera system and had high praise for its low-light performance and new macro photography feature.
iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and watchOS 8 are now officially released with new features including Live Text, Messages updates, redesigned Safari, and Focus modes. While the design changes in iOS 15 Safari are controversial, users are now able to add third-party extensions on iPhone and iPad. We highlight some of the best extensions available now and share our feelings on the new Safari tab bar.
Despite delays to Apple's new SharePlay feature, the iOS 15.1 beta was released and includes Wallet support for COVID vaccination cards, lossless audio for HomePod, and SharePlay. We also discuss the new MagSafe Wallet with Find My capabilities and iCloud+ custom domain issues.
Finally, in a memo to Apple employees, CEO Tim Cook shared his frustration of recent product leaks and promises the company will do "everything in our power to identify those who leaked."
