This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: It sounds like Apple is planning nearly a dozen new Macs with a next-gen M2 processor. The question is, just how big of a speed bump will that new chip bring? And then there’s iPhone 14, which sounds like it might come with a very big bump indeed — and not the kind you might be hoping for.
Also on The CultCast:
- The original HomePod never ceases to surprise.
- iPhone 14 could be the ultimate smartphone for narcissists.
- Apple might be prepping an ingenious hybrid device to take over your living room.
- When you’re tired of wearing earbuds, you’ve got options. Very strange options.
