Beats Pill, Final Cut Camera, and beta RCS are all out now on the AppleInsider Podcast

Just as popular as the Beats Pill speaker is the return of Pill People

Last updated

The Beats Pill speaker has returned to the delight of its fans, Final Cut Camera is out for the first time and winning admirers, plus RCS messaging is in beta — and may just earn Apple a new audience.

We're still waiting for the promise of Apple Intelligence, but even without it, iOS 18 and macOS Sequoia are starting to hit their stride with the second beta, which adds iPhone Mirroring. Unless you're in the EU, anyway.

Alongside the developments in Apple's operating system betas, the company has also released an update to Final Cut Pro for iPad. And alongside that, it's brought out its first pro video app with the free Final Cut Camera.

But perhaps the most popular launch of the week is the Beats Pill portable speaker. It's been off the market for 12 years, and it remains iconic and this revival has been much anticipated.
