The new phone books are here! Wait, no they aren't. But the new operating systems are. Last week, Apple unleashed public betas of both OS X 10.11 El Capitan, and iOS 9. We downloaded and installed them and started kicking the tires, and now it's time to discuss our experiences on the podcast. Joining us is Macworld's former editorial director, More Color columnist, and all-around best pal Jason Snell.

Jason wrote a hands-on with El Capitan that went live as the betas did, and he's most excited about much-needed improvements to Photos, as well as the little Spotlight features that are making a big difference. Glenn's got his eye on security as always, recapping the changes to Apple's two-step authentication process as well as the System Integration Protection feature. We also touch on iOS 9's beta, which brings major multitasking upgrades to certain iPads, but plenty of goodies for all the other devices too.
