New iPads, iPhoto for iOS, and Apple TV

The iPad has some new capabilities—if not a new name—and that’s just one of the Apple products unveiled Wednesday. On this episode of the Macworld Podcast, we dive into each and every announcement coming out of Wednesday’s press event—from the iPad to iOS app updates to Apple TV—with three Macworld editors who were on hand at the Yerba Buena Theater in San Francisco.

I’m joined by editorial director Jason Snell, senior editor Christopher Breen, and senior associate editor Dan Moren. All three not only attended Apple’s press event, they also enjoyed a little hands-on time with the iPad. And they share their impressions and initial thoughts in this jumbo-sized podcast.

We’ve got our news article on the newly unveiled iPad, which won’t arrive on retail shelves until March 16, plus a closer look at the Retina display that leads the changes in this latest tablet.

It was also a busy day for iOS apps, lead by the release of iPhoto for iOS. Existing apps like GarageBand and iMovie underwent updates, too, which Chris Breen tells you about in detail during the podcast.

In addition to our initial report on the latest version of Apple TV, we’ve provide some answers to burning questions about Apple’s set-top box. In the podcast, we mention a piece senior editor Jonathan Seff wrote prior to Wednesday’s event that looks at the challenges posed by 1080 video—it’s still worth a read.

We kick off the podcast with a glaring error—the wrong show number. Rest assured that this is Episode No. 291, and not 290 like the host says.
