This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: The first reviews of the 2023 HomePod make Apple’s updated smart speaker sound pretty formidable. We can’t wait to hear for ourselves. (Unfortunately, if you didn’t already place your HomePod order, you’re probably looking at a substantial hang time.)
Also on The CultCast:

- Retina alert: Apple Watch Ultra might get an even bigger, brighter screen next year.
- Former Apple design chief Jony Ive’s latest creation is … a bright red nose!
