Podcast 565: So long (for now) and thanks for all the Mbps!

Roman and Glenn reminisce over the iPhone's introduction 10 years ago, and discuss Roman's review of the new iMac. We also advise not installing iOS 11's public beta quite yet—for most people—and look at Virgin Mobile's iPhone-only plan, as well as go googly eyes over augmented reality examples with ARKit. Finally, we're heading out on hiatus for retooling, and Glenn says, "Thank you, everyone, and see you on the interwebs!"

Roman and Glenn focus on the bigger picture of this packed keynote and go in depth on the HomePod, as well as a brief discussion of Macs and macOS. Next week, we dig into the iPad Pro and iOS, and everything else learned at WWDC.
