Now that the dust has settled in the wake of WWDC, we spent today’s show talking about which announcements from last week will end up leaving the biggest impact on ordinary users. We also chat a bit about E3, iMovie’s latest update, the Windows 10 iCloud app, and a dubious rumor about the Lightning port on the next iPhone. This is episode 655, featuring Jason Cross, Leif Johnson, and Michael Simon.
