The news is slow in Apple Land this week, so episode 578 of the Macworld Podcast is a bit of a smorgasbord of topics. Macworld’s Leah Yamshon, Michael Simon, and Dan Masaoka talk about their experiences of switching from iPhones to Android phones… and why they switched back (or are still on the fence!). The KRACK Wi-Fi exploit is still a big problem, but luckily Apple is working on it—we explain why it’s important and what you can do. And Cynthia Hogan, Apple’s vice president of public policy for the Americas, addressed some privacy concerns surrounding Face ID (spoiler alert: it’s pretty secure).
Bonus topics: The plausibility of a “foldable” iPhone, and TechHive’s review of the Sonos One smart speaker.
