MobileViews Podcast 375: Guest Don Sorcinelli; team building in a telework world; Apple speculation



Jon Westfall and I are joined by frequent guest panelist Don Sorcinelli for this podcast. We discuss:

  1. iPhone 13 (rumors)
    Smaller notch
    120MHz ProMotion Display
    Camera improvements (???)
    A15 processor
    5G
    MAYBE – under display Touch ID

    Apple WatchOS 7 (known)
    Family Setup – config Watch for people without an iPhone (e.g., children)
    More customizable watch faces
    Single app can provide more than one complication
    Share faces
    Siri language translation

    iPad mini & iPad 7
    Very little reliable rumors IMO

    AirPods 3

  2. Study of Microsoft employees shows how remote work puts productivity and innovation at risk

    “A new study finds that Microsoft’s company wide shift to remote work has hurt communication and collaboration among different business groups inside the company, threatening employee productivity and long-term innovation.”

  3. Jon’s Rant / Confusion: What do you do with health data? Yes, some actionable advice is easy to tell, but I’m still a bit confused by my Bello belly fat analyzer – it literally hasn’t told me a single thing I couldn’t have already noticed in much lower-tech fashion: a mirror.

MobileViews Podcast 359: Speculation about Apple’s 4/20 announcements



In this podcast Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Apple April 20 announcements speculation
    iPad Pro
    Mini LED for 12.9 model? Meh?
    M1?
    Apple Pencil 3
    Spring loaded tip?
    Kano Harry Potter coding Kit
    iPad Pro Magic Keyboard 2
    Current model is interesting but too expensive. Have been very happy with Anker, Arteck, & Logitech Bluetooth keyboards for under $50
    iOS 14.5
    Unlock iPhone with mask on using Apple Watch
    iPad mini 6
    Smaller bezel, bigger screen, same overall size?
    AirTags
    How many years have we been hearing about this?
    AirPods 3
    Apple TV
    I switched to Roku years ago. Apple TV is too expensive
    New Macs
    Probably not. Usually announced during WWDC

    Apple Watch Birthday is April 24 (Next Saturday) – 2015 – 2021

  2. Jon: Laptop phone home
