On this week's AppleInsider Podcast, Apple updated its MagSafe Battery Pack with faster charging, four iPhone 14 models leak, child safety in messages expands to new countries, and we share our home screen setups.

A new firmware update to Apple's MagSafe Battery Pack has been released which increases its charging speed to 7.5W. The slight increase in charging rate is welcome, though it could take up to a week for the firmware to install. Consequently, we examine the several products in Apple's lineup that restrict users from manually updating their software.

YouTube creator Sara Dietschy gained special access to film Apple's iPhone recycling robot, Daisy. First announced in 2018, Daisy can disassemble 1.2 million iPhones per year to recycle their parts better. Daisy can remove iPhone screens and screws, but human workers are needed to separate individual pieces.

Next, rumors corroborate this year's iPhone 14 may include a 48MP rear camera, and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo now claims the front-facing camera will gain autofocus capability. Quick Review Lab also leaked an image of what purports to be iPhone 14 models, notably missing any mini-size model in the coming lineup.

As the broadcast video industry meets for its annual NAB conference, professional video users have separately signed a petition asking Apple to increase awareness of Final Cut Pro. They want Apple's help in promoting the use of the tool use in the film industry, and to make that possible, they also want Apple to add better collaboration tools. Finally, our hosts close the show by comparing their home screen setups and highlighting tips for customizing icons and widgets.
