It’s taken us 3.5 years, but we have finally reached 100 episodes! In this milestone ep, it’s somewhat fitting that we cover Apple’s WWDC as we break down all of the announcements from Federighi and co. Hear all about what’s coming in the next iterations of iOS, macOS and watchOS, as well as how you will not be surprised at the lack of Siri progress.

63: E3 and WWDC Special

Epsiode 63 is a legendary one where we cover two massive conventions: gaming convention E3 and WWDC, Apple’s developer conference, how timely with Voltron: The Legendary Defender now on Netflix.

We go through the news story of the week with Microsoft making their biggest deal ever and buying the biggest organisational chart in the world, LinkedIn. Find why and for how much.

Coming all the way from LA, E3 2016 has given us new games, remasters of old classics, more VR excitement and new consoles. We give you a summary of all the announcements from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Bathesda and EA.

While there was no hardware announced at Apple’s WWDC, there were new features across the board. watchOS 3 is now much faster, tvOS lets you use your iPhone as a remote, OSX is now macOS (Sierra) with better integration across all your Apple products, iOS 10 brings about the option to remove Apple apps and a large update to the messages. We cover these and so much more in Episode 63.
