WWDC22: M2 MacBook Air, macOS Ventura and iOS 16, plus will the EU’s USB-C ruling doom innovation? Vertical Hold Ep 382
Apple’s WWDC2022 brought us new hardware in the form of M2 processors and MacBook Air and Pro models to go with them, along with a LOT of software announcements covering macOS Ventura, iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9 and more. But what was worth getting excited about — and what was sheer marketing puff? Plus, is the EU’s move to force gadget makers to standardise on USB-C going to stifle innovation? Special guest News Corp Tech Editor Jennifer Dudley-Nicholson!
