Real-world testing shows that AirPods Pro 2 has remarkably improved noise cancellation, while putting the Apple Watch Ultra to the test confirms its great battery life. There's also disaster tech, Apple Store experiences, and bugs in iOS 16, all on the AppleInsider podcast.

Some people are trying out the new Apple Watch Ultra by hanging off cliffs, diving deep underwater, or utilizing laboratory testing equipment. But others are wearing it to the supermarket. If you've wondered whether there really is a space in your life for the maxed-out, tripped out, rugged Apple Watch Ultra, listen to host Stephen Robles's adventures in Aisle 9.

This week's podcast could practically have come live from Stephen's local supermarket, because it's also there that he has found out exactly how good the improved AirPods Pro 2 are at noise cancellation. The supermarket is unfortunately also in the path of Hurricane Ian, so consequently, this edition also delves deep into disaster preparations.
