A potpourri of news this week, from Tim Cook urging that schools teach coding to every student, Scott Forstall's interview about the creation of the iPhone, and new iOS 11 features, including object recognition and augmented reality (AR), that will bump up camera and other third-party apps' capabilities.

Apple confirms its working on autonomous automobiles, but is it making a car or a component?

Could a non-invasive wearable blood-glucose monitor that links to an Apple Watch help change people's lives and lead to better avoidance of diabetes onset?

Apple invests $200 million into Corning for advanced glass manufacture in the U.S., WannaCrypt hit Windows users (but also could affect Macs with Boot Camp or virtual machines), and Siri gets crowded by Alexa and Google Assistant. Susie and Glenn talk that plus research showing an Apple Watch can detect irregular heartbeats 97 percent as well as dedicated medical equipment.
Apple could spend a billion dollars on break room snacks and not feel a pinch, but the company is instead digging deep to seed an investment fund for advanced U.S. manufacturing. Which is pretty tasty too. Show notes: http://www.macworld.com/column/mwpodcast/

After a security-focused podcast last week, we turn to...more security stories, like the so-called backdoor in WhatsApp (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157458/security/whatsapp-vulnerability-could-expose-messages-to-prying-eyes-report-claims.html) and how to keep those communications safe (http://www.macworld.com/article/3157562/security/the-backdoor-that-never-was-and-how-to-improve-your-security-with-whatsapp.html).

Susie's AirPods review (http://www.macworld.com/article/3151535/iphone-ipad/airpods-review-they-sound-great-but-siri-holds-them-back.html) is live, and they work like a charm, but unfortunately highlight the divide between first- and third-party apps. Tim Cook says Apple still loves the Mac (http://www.macworld.com/article/3152072/macs/tim-cook-reaffirms-apples-commitment-to-the-mac-in-response-to-growing-doubt.html), but this report on Bloomberg (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-...more
AirPods are finally out, Apple is pulling the battery-remaining estimate from macOS 10.12.2, the new emoji are uncannily beautiful, and the I'm a Mac ads are 10 years old.

A convenience store where you just walk in and take things sounds pretty futuristic and cool—unless you're already sick of being watched the entire time you shop.
A grab-bag of topics this week includes President-elect Trump's wish for Apple to build iPhones in the U.S.—and how Apple is responding so far.
Rumor has it, Apple is getting out of the router game—for good, or just in preparation for a video streamer slash router slash home hub?
Apple's new design book annoyed us greatly, and so has Apple's attitude lately. But Susie's still really into the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
Susie's a little underwhelmed by the Escape Edition of the MacBook Pro, but more bullish on the Touch Bar. Glenn warns that USB-C isn't as simple as it seems, and wonders about the next big Mac innovation.
This week, Glenn and Susie discuss their hopes and dreams for the new TV app coming to the Apple TV and iOS this December, plus more thoughts on the new MacBook Pros.
Glenn and Roman talk about the MacBook Pro—is it enough to satisfy professional Mac users, former MacBook Air owners, and most importantly, you?
Reports that Apple is refocusing Project Titan on software rather than a car have us wondering. Maybe the key to everything is AI and augmented reality.

Glenn and Kirk talk about iTunes and Apple Music, then Glenn and Susie heap praise upon the iPhone 7 Plus and its dual-lens wonder camera.
The iPhone 7 Plus is charming Glenn and Susie, but they have some issues with how Photos treats all the beautiful images the phone's dual camera setup takes.
macOS Sierra has hit the scene, so Glenn and Susie take a break from talking about the iPhone and iOS 10 for an hour to talk about it.
iOS 10 is out and it's spectacular. But the iPhone Upgrade Program isn't proving to be so great for people who actually want to upgrade their iPhones.
Apple unleashed details about the Series 2 Watch, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, iOS 10 and watchOS 3’s shipping date, and…iWork real-time collaboration. John Moltz joins Glenn Fleishman to discuss.
As we prepare for the launch of the next iPhone and Apple Watch, Apple has run into some tax trouble in Ireland.

Susie and Caitlin have a lot of feelings about the loss of Paper, which has been like rocks and scissors to our souls.
What's up with the headphone jack obsession about the upcoming iPhone 7 models? Host Glenn Fleishman and Macworld's associate managing editor Leah Yamshon discuss how much virtual ink has been spilled for how long, and yet nobody outside Apple still knows what's coming. Leah and Glenn also ponder other iPhone 7 rumors, the end of Apple's sales of the Thunderbolt Display, whether new AirPort base stations are coming, and if MacBook Pros will be updated later this summer. We talk about iOS 10 an...more
We're back for more followup from Apple's WWDC keynote and all the cool software that will come out in the next few months.
Glenn and Susie are joined by Macworld Staff Writer Caitlin McGarry to unpack all of Apple's WWDC 2016 keynote announcements. Or most of them, anyway!
Glenn and Susie handicap the WWDC rumors, hope for some fun surprises, and praise the Apple TV for coming so far since launch.
It's a smorgasbord of topics as we head into WWDC, from ticks and tocks to crowdfunding to cancer rats. But the thing we're most excited about is the rumored demise of the 16GB iPhone.
Google I/O is over, and WWDC is about to happen—it's the perfect time to compare Google's approach to Apple's, and wonder what will happen if we move from a mobile-first world to an AI-first one.
Glenn and Susie are joined by The iTunes Guy, Kirk McElhearn, for a rousing discussion on why iTunes gives us so much trouble, as well as whether Apple Pay really is faster than those poky chip-and-sign readers.
Apple Music doesn't just delete files willy-nilly, but it's way too easy to delete them by mistake—and if Connect goes away, will anyone notice?
While Susie Ochs is off on assignment in the fens around Boston, regular host Glenn Fleishman is joined by frequent Macworld contributor John Moltz, who also writes at his Web site, Very Nice Web Site, and co-hosts The Rebound tech podcast and [Turning This Car Around dadcast. Glenn and John talk about the last week's reception to Apple's earnings, walk through Tim Cook's appearance on Jim Cramer's show, and explain that the company is doomed. Doomed, we tells ya! Or, more accurately, how Apple...more
Glenn and Susie discuss Macworld's review of the new MacBook, people dissing the Apple Watch on its anniversary, the missing iPhone SE, and if Apple's services can save it.
Well, "newish" MacBooks anyway. They still only have one port, and it's USB-C, not Thunderbolt 3. But the battery life is improved, the chipset is faster, and Glenn is still satisfied with his first-gen MacBook after a year of heavy use.
As Glenn and Susie were recording this week, the news broke that TextExpander was responding to feedback by lowering the subscription price for existing users. Unfortunately, that's not our only problem with the service.
This week, Glenn interviews three people in vastly different professions who have brought the 12-inch iPad Pro into their work lives in a big way.
Sorry for the delay on getting this podcast to you. Glenn and Susie have a lot to say, and a few things cropped up at the last minute. Anyway, here we go.
What. Just. Happened. Security expert Jonathan Zdziarski helps us unpack the FBI's sudden 180 in the San Bernardino case. How did they get into the phone? Will they tell Apple? Is this even over? Oh, and Susie got the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro too.
The Macworld podcast celebrates its 500th episode! Yes, 500 years ago—we mean 11 years ago, this podcast started humbly as an experiment by a Macworld intern turned staffer recorded partly in a conference room with a nerdy guest named…Glenn Fleishman calling in remotely. In this episode, after a welcome from one-time staffer Cyrus Farivar, Susie and Glenn talk with columnist and former editor Jason Snell about Apple's introduction of the iPhone SE and Jason's hands-on time with it. We also disc...more
Aside from our regular discussion of the FBI kerfuffle and this week's side trip to Austin for SXSW Interactive, we wonder about how the rumored 4-inch iPhone will fit into Apple's world.
Nothing, it's not a real thing. Really.
Glenn and Susie are back on the FBI's case, discussing the All Writs Act, whether software is speech, and more. Plus, we have big hopes for the smaller iPhone SE.
Glenn and Susie are joined by Rich Mogull, and everyone is angry.
Don't set your iPhone to before 1970, don't update your Creative Cloud, and don't expect Apple executives to openly admit iTunes is awful.
Humans need more than a two-digit number when their iPhones go completely dead.
To some people, it doesn't matter how many millions of something Apple can sell, or how happy the customers are with them. It's only growth, and that's too bad, because it seems like Apple is working on some great stuff.
Security researcher Rich Mogull joins us to talk about security when traveling to countries where you might have a very good reason to be paranoid.
With Susie on assignment in Florida, Leah Yamshon (Macworld's associate managing editor) joins Glenn Fleishman to discuss Donald Trump's fiat economy plan to make Apple produce its hardware in America, the New York Senate's desire to criminalize a lack of back doors in smartphones, and the return (or continued existence) of Gatekeeper exploits. Leah and Glenn also talk about VLC, a universal format player, for Apple TV; their continued irritation at some Apple TV features; and Netflix's plan to...more

Holiday shopping can be stressful, but we've got great gift ideas and some helpful tips too.
Back in the day, AT&T insisted that every iPhone user have an unlimited data plan. My, how the tides have changed. Glenn and Susie discuss the coming rate hike and the rest of the week's news.

Glenn sold his Apple Watch, and Susie bought a new iPhone. Time to talk about what a weird process that's becoming. Elsewhere, Amazon and Microsoft mess up, and content blocking gets messy.
Jason Snell, proprietor of Six Colors, joins Glenn this week to talk about the release of El Capitan and the two new iPhones, all of which Jason tested over a very, very busy couple of weeks and published reviews of earlier this week. El Capitan is ready for business in a way that we can't remember many or any other OS X releases being. We recommend upgrading for all Yosemite users. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have significant hardware changes that translate into a great new set of exp...more

THREE MORE THINGS.
Glenn and Susie talk about the upcoming Apple event, and how bananas it is that Android Wear watches work with iPhones now—in fact, they even do a couple things better than the Apple Watch.
Glenn is testing a few content blockers for iOS 9, and even at this early stage they make a huge difference. In other news, the Apple Car seems awfully real, Tim Cook emails Jim Cramer, and Google gets into the router game.
Susie and Glenn unpack all the Apple TV rumor bombs dropped by 9to5Mac. And yes, The Simpsons are mentioned.
Lots of follow up and little news tidbits this week. Our malware woes seem weak compared to what Android users are facing. CurrentC is losing its exclusivity before it even launches. And we're getting excited about new iPhones and iPads coming soon!
Apple Music is new and cool, but combining it with your own collection can lead to weirdness and frustration. Elsewhere, serious security flaws that shouldn't freak you out too much, and Apple says MVN-no.
Apple had an amazing quarter, except those pesky iPad sales. CurrentC might be coming soon, but Apple Pay already has it beat. And can Tim Cook throw shade or what?
Susie's cold is finally gone, Apple put out a sweet new iPod touch (that may or may not hold clues to the next low-end iPhone), and Glenn used apps to turn his rental car into KITT from Knight Rider. Good times.
Jason Snell joins Susie and Glenn to discuss the public betas of OS X 10.11 El Capitan and iOS 9. Beta-riffic!

Glenn helps Susie feel safer with his copious knowledge of OS X security. Susie helps Glenn figure out Apple Music. That's what friends are for.
El Capitan isn't just an awesome name. It'll have much-needed performance improvements, plus some new features that sound small but could make a big difference in the quality of your digital life. We can't wait to put it on the Macs Apple absolutely shouldn't stop making.
What's the news about Apple's News app? Glenn is joined by Jason Snell of Six Colors, and Tom Standage of the Economist to unpack what Apple's push into the news business means for publishers and readers alike.
In an effort to discuss the WWDC keynote for *even longer than the actual keynote*, we tackle iOS 9 and watchOS 2 this week. Next week, the News app, El Capitan, and if we can get to it, Apple Music.
Greenbot's Florence Ion joins Glenn and Susie to discuss Google's developer conference, and what we'd like to see Apple draw on as, uh, inspiration.

Glenn and Susie are joined by Roman Loyola and Caitlin McGarry to talk about those apps that deliver all kinds of goods and services to your door. Are they lifesavers, or are they ruining everything?

Glenn, Susie, and Macworld Editor-in-Chief Jon Phillips really hope the Apple Watch experience is nothing like using the Galaxy Gear. We also discuss the rumored Apple TV streaming service, and that darn USB-C port again.
Susie reports back from the March 9 Apple event, and she and Glenn geek out over the new MacBook...oh, and some shiny gold arm candy too.
This week, Susie and Glenn are watching and waiting for the Apple Watch, and discuss what Apple needs to reveal at Monday's special event.
