Apple's board is complete again, and now with a little more diversity. Welcome to Tim Cook's Apple.
Apple rarely gives developers early access to unreleased products, and iFixit may have ruined that for everyone. iFixit is known for their detailed tear downs for new devices, and the company found itself on Apple's bad side after taking apart an early access Apple TV developer kit and posting what's inside on its website.
Adam Christianson joins Bryan Chaffin to discuss why he's happy he downsized to the iPhone 6s, content blockers and ad-blocking, and Apple's in-app purchase cut when it comes to streaming music. Plus, Adam commits—with all of you as witness—to only using the iPad Pro instead of his laptop when he leaves his office to work. Check it out!

iOS 9 introduces a new feature to the iPhone called "Low Power Mode." Like Apollo 13 on the way to the Moon, it shuts down non-essential services in an effort to maintain an emergency lifeline. That is, enough juice to make and hold an emergency phone call, be located, or utilize Wi-Fi. Here's how to activate it.
Apple has released iOS 9.0.2 with some minor bug fixes and an important security fix related to Siri. According to the notes, "A person with physical access to an iOS device may be able to access photos and contacts from the lock screen."
Apple has unleashed its next version of OS X for the Macintosh, named El Capitan. In this release, Apple has officially focused on the user experience and performance, but this new version will have traditional attention to stability and security.

Apple announced on Wednesday it was launching Apple Music, iTunes Movies, and iBooks in China, a significant expansion in digital media in the world's largest market. Apple Music in China will be priced well below the U.S. price, at just 10 CNY, or $1.57 per month. Apple Music will also offer the same 90 day free trial offered in other markets.
There's plenty to look at in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, so today Kelly Guimont joins Jeff Gamet to talk about Live Photos, Apple's new cameras, making the move from the iPhone 5s, and using 3D touch.
Taking a Live Photo is pretty neat, and as long as you can iMessage someone running iOS 9, they can share in that neatness. If you want to share with other people, or even your Mac, you'll need an alternate solution. Kelly shows the easiest way to share out that amazing Live Photo for all the world to see, regardless of device.
Live Photos are one of the new features of the iPhone 6s and 6s+. They're neat, but how do you show them off? Kelly has the scoop on how to send them to other Apple users, who can see them, and how to make them available to everyone else.
With Apple Music trial periods beginning to expire, the company has posted a series of videos on YouTube that offer guided tours to many features on the service. Below we have Guided Tour: Apple Music Playlists. It walks you through how to navigate playlists on the streaming service and breaks down the different types offered (Apple Editor Playlists, Activity Playlists, Curated Playlists). All of the icons and other features are explained, too.
Google Maps joined the Apple Watch bandwagon Tuesday. An update to the Google Maps client for iOS slipped in an Apple Watch app along with new comparison feature for different travel modes.

Dr. Mac got an iPhone 6s last Friday; his initial impressions are in Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves Episode 143, a delightful little ditty he likes to call, "Dr. Mac's First Look at the iPhone 6s." It wasn't all wine and roses (Spoiler alert: He thinks the Rose Gold looks too pink). But after a rocky start, the Doc is pretty happy with his newest gadget.
Today Jeff takes a closer look at 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with Bryan Chaffin. Yesterday's iPhone 6s first look got a lot of feedback, so we respond to listener comments, too.
