On this week's episode of the AppleInsider podcast, your hosts round up their favorite iPadOS apps, give a one year review of AirPods Max, compare Apple Music Replay to Spotify Wrapped, and more!
Every year Spotify provides its users with a summary of their most listened music and podcasts. Apple offers its users an alternative called Apple Music Replay but is not without flaws. We discuss the pros and cons, plus how it can be improved in future iterations.
Jack Dorsey announced he is stepping down from his position as Twitter CEO and will be replaced by Parag Agrawal. Dorsey will no longer be on the board of directors either and believes the company will be able to "change the course of this company for the better". Dorsey remains the CEO of Square which recently rebranded as "Block".
AirPods Max have been on the market for almost a year and our hosts share their long-term reviews. Despite some users experiencing bugs and periodic connection issues, Apple's over-the-ear ANC headphones provide several benefits including superb Spatial Audio support, comfort during long listening sessions, and more.
Then, our hosts list their favorite apps for iPad, including many listener submissions. We cover the best apps for creativity, productivity, note-taking, leisure, and many more.
