Happy Birthday iPhone! Dave and I talk about iPhone's birthday as well as some rumors of upcoming products, including a new HomePod that sounds more like the orginal than the mini. We also talk about the Commissioner of the FCC calling on Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their App Stores, and how you can interact with Maps using Siri.
Note: Dave made a slight error when talking about which TV show was produced by Lorne Michaels, but he corrected it later on in the show.
I finally got so fed up with Siri that I bought an Echo to use in my kitchen—but I only use it when Siri and the HomePod fails. Dave and I talk about how often that is on this week's show. Dave tells us more about the iOS 16 lock screen and some other new features he enjoys, like the ability to bypass CAPTCHAs. macOS Ventura’s enhanced search, Samsung caught cheating, and using iCloud+ are all in this week's episode.
