iPhone 14 Plus initial reviews are out, we discuss battery life concerns, Apple's silicone vs leather cases, revisiting the MagSafe Battery Pack one year later, and Google announces Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel Watch, all on the AppleInsider Podcast.

Initial reviews of the iPhone 14 Plus universally praise the long battery life. On the other hand, iPhone 14 Pro owners complain of fast battery drain and your hosts discuss their experience.

Choosing the right iPhone case can be difficult. Your hosts run through what makes a good case, if Apple's cases are worth it, and what they use today.

The MagSafe Battery Pack is over a year old, but it's still the best combination of size and efficiency. Anker has made some handy battery packs, but Apple's model has withstood the test of time.

Also, Google revealed the new Google Pixel lineup and Pixel Watch. The show wraps up with a quick recap of the event and the differences in how Apple and Google handle algorithmic photography.
