This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: An iOS 17 update supposedly will stop the iPhone 15 Pro’s Action button from triggering in your pocket, at least in certain circumstances. Is this really a problem that needs fixing?

Also on The CultCast:

  • When it comes to upcoming Macs and Apple Watch, this week’s no news sounds like very bad news indeed.
  • Apple’s Vision Pro headset seems to be straining the necks of some pencil-necked geeks.
  • For this week’s Under Review segment, I’ve got a unique-looking charger and Erfon and Griffin bring very different sorts of cameras to the podcast’s version of show and tell.

Under Review

In our Under Review segment, we spotlight products we’re putting through the paces.

  • Lewis: The Anker 3-in-1 Cube with MagSafe is the wildest-looking charger I’ve seen for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods. It’s strangely exotic and boasts plenty of power. But is it really built for travel?
  • Erfon: Fujifilm’s new X-S20 is the best lightweight camera for almost all people, and it’s now my go-to for travel and daily use. With its numerous film-emulation modes, there are few cameras that create a more beautiful image, regardless of price.
  • Griffin: Sony Mavica FD73, a vintage digital camera that saves pictures onto a 3.5-inch floppy disk. (Remember those?) Plus, it takes pictures at a charmingly low-res 640×480 for a classic ’90s look.
