What's in this episode?

In Episode 22 of Apple Slice Podcast, Simon and Nic detail the mammoth-sized 'Apple Park' and its 1000-seat auditorium officially named 'Steve Jobs Theater'.

The iPhone 8 will switch to USB-C... no, Lightning... no, Lightning-shaped USB-C - get our thoughts on the ports. Also, Apple keep ahead of the game with a new fingerprint sensor, and potential 3D selfies? September can't come sooner.

Simon gets corporately cool with Touch Bar support for Microsoft Office - yes we used both 'Office' and 'cool' in the same sentence. Facebook also lands in the lounge for Apple TV - nightmare or not?

Add some ads while Nic adds you can't nick nicknames or add names ad-lib.
