Podcast episode #011 – week 22/2023 (Apple Design Awards)

Newsreel Podcast

In the latest Sir Apfelot newsreel podcast episode you meet the iPad Air (1st gen) and Thunderbolt Display, which are now considered “obsolete”, and the iPad (5th gen), which is classified as “vintage”. It is also about the xade nano iPhone colorimeter and microscope and the return of the "Digital Euro" scam by the Federal Ministry of Finance.

There is also something to celebrate - the 5th anniversary of the Sir Apfelot App. We are also presenting the three winners of the Swift Student Challenge at the WWDC23 . Setapp offers a family subscription with 240+ apps for $19,99 per month. GOYO, a free VST plugin for voice isolation in audio recordings, is unveiled, and starting Monday, Apple is accepting 2022 Mac models for the trade-in program. Finally, we present the 32 finalist apps from the 2023 Apple Design Awards.

In the newsreel of week 22/2023 we discuss the confusion surrounding the top-level domain .zip, the final report on the “Sector investigation into online advertising” by the Federal Cartel Office and a human rights discussion about brain implant removal. Also covered are Maker projects involving IKEA products, iMessage's Contact Key Verification security technology, and Apple's termination of My Photo Stream. Listen in to find out all the details!
