This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: With WWDC23 just days away, we’re going on the record with our predictions for Apple’s most momentous developer conference in years. Will iOS 17 allow alternative app stores? Will the Apple headset cost $3,000? Will our reputations survive this public guessing game?

Also on The CultCast:

  • It looks like new high-end Macs will definitely be in the mix — and the leaked specs sound absolutely blistering.
  • The Apple headset’s advanced hardware might make virtual reality look stunningly real.
  • Generative AI shows us what the rest of Taylor Swift’s evermore album cover might look like.
