MobileViews Podcast 339: MobileViews Podcast 339: iPhone 12 Pro Max, unlimited Google Photos going away, MacOS 11 Big Sur, Apple Arcade game of the week

In this podcast, Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Google Photos storage policy change coming in June 1, 2021
    Photos taken using a Pixel phone model will continue to have free storage
  2. Jon got an iPhone 12 Pro Max, his thoughts:
    Size not a huge difference, reminds me of when I was on the 6 Plus / 7 Plus.
    Camera is nice, but haven’t had a chance to really test it out yet.
    “Virgin” setup – took about 4 hours to get it ready. Elected to have apps go directly to App Library, not make icons. Trying to streamline my UI to be more task driven and make full use of widgets.
    iCloud Sync syncs strange things – the password on my personal hotspot for example!
  3. Why doesn’t Apple News+ support audio stories on the iPad?
  4. Apple iOS Notes app for document scanning
  5. M1 powered (Apple Silicon) products announced
    Mac Mini
    MacBook Air
    MacBook Pro 13″ (16″ is still Intel based)
  6. MacOS 11 Big Sur
    After-show note: Garageband 10.4.1 update will not install unless the Mac is running Big Sur
  7. Plague Inc.’s new ‘The Cure’ mode is free until the pandemic ends
  8. Apple Arcade: Tint
