Vision Pro is here and Apple Arcade is booming, on the AppleInsider Podcast

Apple Vision Pro is here

Apple Vision Pro is now reality, Apple Arcade is matching its rivals and the AppleInsider podcast's Champion of Features No One's Heard Of has news about Apple News+.

T'was the night before the Vision Pro launch, or at least it was as this episode was recorded, and all about the house, one single AppleInsider host was preparing. Host Wesley Hilliard talks to us even as he's packing up for a trip to Nashville to, you know, take in the sites, see a show — and buy a Vision Pro, if he can place his pre-order in time.

It's startling to think that there have been rumors of this headset for so very many years and now we're within a breath of it being in people's hands.

This could actually be one of those days when you remember where you were as it happened. Or it could be a total flop, the end of the entire VR gig, and certainly Apple is again doooomed.

But Vision Pro is far from the only thing Apple is doing and even in this week of all weeks, there is so much to talk about. That includes Apple Arcade's rising popularity, plus the new iOS 17 with its Stolen Device Protection.

Plus, this is a thing now: the Champion of Features No One's Heard Of is back with some surprising new extras in Apple News.
