Bryan Chaffin and John Kheit dig into Apple’s new Mac Pro, covering the good, the bad, and the ugly. They talk specs, costs, some of the things that came out since the keynote, and weigh the very important question of whether they want one. Spoiler, yes, but John’s actually likely to pull the trigger. Bryan also makes sure to give John plenty of room to take his victory laps for the many things he got right leading up to this long-awaited announcement.
John Martellaro and Andrew Orr join host Kelly Guimont for a discussion of a new interview with Craig Federighi and the new iPod Touch.
The Independent recently published an interview with Craig Federighi, talking about privacy and Apple chips.
Those chips are here to see whether they can withstand whatever assault anyone might try on them when they make their way out into the world. If they succeed here, then they should succeed anywhere; that’s important, because if they fail out in the world then so would Apple. These chips are the great line of defence in a battle that Apple never stops fighting as it tries to keep users’ data private.
I don’t think the article was written well, but to me the most interesting part was Secure Enclave stress testing, which involves temperature. I assume Apple is trying to prevent hacks like this.
In response to a shareholder question about iPad Pro models, USB-C, and the inability to do video over USB-C, Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi said this feature was coming.
Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi confirmed the news to Redditor federicotrevisani1, but it will be little more than a minor inconvenience to Siri Short users on these older iPhones.

There will be a new pro display too, with teams working hard on both.
Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering gives plenty of insight and details about the new technology, which should set many people’s minds at ease.
Conan O’Brien has the unaired footage of Craig Federighi’s Face ID Q&A session with audience members at this week’s iPhone X launch event, and by “footage” we mean “opening sketch for the Conan Show.” The questions are absolutely fantastic and exactly what you’d expect from random audience members. It’s also a great example of just how mainstream Apple, the iPhone, and Apple’s media events have become. The video is just over a minute and a half long and worth checking out.
Apple says what looked like a Face ID demonstration failure at the iPhone X unveiling was actually the feature working exactly as it should.
iOS 11 is coming, and Bryan and Jeff discuss some of what they’re looking forward to. They also talk about Apple’s big plans in making movies and TV shows, and why it’s important for Apple to do so. The cap the show with a look at Apple Watch being involved with a baseball cheating scheme.
Eddy Cue continues to oversee the iTunes Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay, Apple Maps, iCloud, iWork, and iLife.
Dave Hamilton and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to share their perspective on Siri’s management being reassigned from Eddy Cue to Craig Federighi, plus they discuss APFS compatibility issues with Fusion Drives in macOS High Sierra.
With the Mac Pro pushing four years old and concerns Apple is abandoning the pro market, the company did something very out of character: It announced a totally redesigned Mac Pro is in the works, along with a pro display. The Mac Pro is getting a minor speed bump today, too. Looks like it’s damage control time in Cupertino.
