Connected is a weekly panel discussion on Apple and the impact of technology on our lives. With each co-host having a unique background — and accent — Connected provides a perspective that no other show can. Hosted by Federico Viticci, Myke Hurley, and Stephen Hackett.
This week, Phillr gets an update, iCloud encryption is in the news and Federico shows off his home screens. Also: rumors of a new Smart Keyboard, the possibility of Apple making its own podcasts and a bunch of creepy — yet soothing — whispering.
After working out what the award should be for the two Chairman spots, the boys ponder the future of the iPad Pro's accessories and the holes on the back of the rack-mounted Mac Pro. Then, Myke provides a tour of CES.
The boys kick of 2020 with a lot of follow-up including clarifying what being a Chairman means, a challenge for the Upgradies and a debate about the iPad Air, then conversations about LaunchCuts and Twitter's iPad app.
Federico, Myke and Stephen review their predictions for 2019 and a new Chairman is named before everyone makes their choices for 2020, including the Risky Picks. Also, one of them gets a very special delivery during the show.
2019 was a wild year, complete with the death of AirPower, the announcement of iPadOS, the release of the iPhone 11 and the return of the Mac Pro. This week, Stephen, Federico and Myke revisit the headlines that made this year so hectic.
Federico and Stephen each used HomeKit Secure Video, and it didn't go well. Myke is excited about a new folding phone, and the whole crew orders iPhone 11 Pro battery cases before solving many mysteries presented by photos of the Mac Pro factory.
There's a new MacBook Pro in town, bringing with it an updated design and a new keyboard, and Apple's rumored AR glasses make everyone feel old. Myke is crowned the Popsocket Enthusiast, Stephen gets an email and Federico explains Toolbox Pro.
