The AppleInsider podcast dives in to the details on Apple Watch Ultra and its rugged capabilities, walkthrough iPhone 14 with new satellite SOS features, ramifications of going eSIM-only, and more!
Apple's Far Out event revealed the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, an updated Apple Watch SE, and second-generation AirPods Pro. It's time to break down the event, discuss stagecraft, and contemplate picking up some extreme sports.
The iPhone 14 Pro replaced the notch with what's called a Dynamic Island. The device's UI takes over the area in a whimsical way to show notifications, Live Activities, and more.
The Apple Watch Ultra is a little too extreme for host Wesley, especially since it only comes in a single color. It was built for hikers, divers, and people enduring the harshest terrain.
We look forward to a new set of AirPods Pro and its improved noise cancellation. While lossless wasn't mentioned at the event, we speculate that Bluetooth 5.3 may enable higher-quality streaming in the future.
