This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: The first reviews of iPhone 15 Pro rave about everything from the phenomenal titanium finish to the fantastic 5x zoom. Sounds like Tim Cook has another winner on his hands.
Also on The CultCast:
- Loads of great new iOS 17 and iPhone 15 features fly below the radar. We discuss some of our faves.
- Apple’s new FineWoven cases, on the other hand, sound like a huge, synthetic miss.
- Some haters are trying to get “Printgate” started, but we can’t believe iPhone 15 Pro’s sweet titanium frame is gonna be a fingerprint magnet.
- With tvOS 17, the Apple TV finally gets a no-brainer capability: FaceTime calls.
