This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: The invites for WWDC23 just went out, so maybe … just maybe … we have a date certain upon which we will cast our eyes upon Apple’s mixed-reality headset. The more we hear about it, the more intrigued we are. And at least part of that is who in the devil will buy one of these things if they cost $3,000?!?
Also on The CultCast:
- New features arrive in iOS 16.4, including Voice Isolation for iPhone calls.
- This AI crap is getting creepier by the minute — even Woz and Elon Musk are spooked!
- How to spot AI deepfakes.
- We’ve got a nice magnetic iPad stand for this week’s giveaway.
