Hiking with Apple Watch Ultra 2 & zooming with iPhone 15 Pro Max on the AppleInsider podcast

Apple Watch Ultra 2

AppleInsider Podcast hosts Stephen, William and (unintentionally) Siri, talk overheating iPhones, hiking, the startling 5x zoom on iPhone 15 Pro Max, and remembering Steve Jobs.

Stephen Robles went all-in this year with both an Apple Watch Ultra 2 and an iPhone 15 Pro Max — and put both of them to the test on a hiking holiday. Listen to find out just what he did and exactly how they performed, but the short version is that Stephen is deeply impressed.

Neither he nor William Gallagher are impressed with the stories of the iPhone 15 Pro overheating, but chiefly because neither of them have had the problem.

What your two hosts both have is a history with Siri, who as you'll hear clearly wants a new job as co-presenter.

With Google promising to add its Bard generative AI service to Google Assistant, it looks like Apple will do something similar with Siri. But it would be good to fix some basic Siri problems first.
