This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: Apple’s “Let Loose” event is over, and the new iPad Pro and iPad Air are officially here. In our postmortem, we discuss the pros (tons) and cons (not many) of the new tablets. Plus, we go over what we got right and wrong in the run-up to the event.

Also on The CultCast:

  • Apple Pencil Pro and the new Magic Keyboard for iPad sound great for artists.
  • Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro gain some cool new features.
  • The first M4 chip benchmarks look promising.
  • That eye-catching “Crush!” ad for the iPad Pro lands Apple in hot water.
  • And we have a winner in our “Let Loose” event predictions challenge.
