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.

We discussed a few news items in the show that weren’t related to WWDC, so here are the relevant articles and links to check out if you want more information.

- Apple’s iCloud app finally comes to the Windows Store
- iMovie’s latest update brings green screen effects, 80 new soundtracks, and more
- Tweet interpreted as suggesting next iPhone may have a USB-C port
The new Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR have dominated much of the talk about WWDC, but those impressive devices won’t affect the lives of most ordinary iPhone, iPad, and Mac users. Instead, we predict that features such as iPadOS and Apple’s new privacy measures will leave a bigger impact. As a springboard for discussion, we used Jason Cross’ story below:
