This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: Maybe, just maybe, Apple can make a metaverse competitor that won’t leave us ready to heave. Stranger things have happened, but we’re not so sure the long-rumored Apple mixed-reality headset will be right for us.
Also on The CultCast:
- Apple’s Emergency SOS via satellite feature looks pretty cool and potentially lifesaving. Be sure to try the demo before you find yourself stranded on a mountaintop.
- We’re endlessly searching for a Black Friday deal on AirTags. (Editor’s note: Oh, wait, here’s one now: Grab an AirTag 4-pack for less than $80 before this deal disappears.)
- iPhone 4K video — it’s a scam!
- Erfon’s missing AirPods Max story takes a strange twist.
- You won’t believe how much somebody paid for an ancient pair of Steve Jobs’ stinky Birkenstocks.
