What's in this episode?

In Episode 24 of Apple Slice Podcast, we reveal what Bixby is and how it measures up to Apple's Siri. Also, fresh after the latest software releases, it's the perfect time to bring you new Apple Watch colour options and Cinema Mode.

Nic went hands-on with the stunningly Red iPhone 7 models, as well as bold Nylon tri-tone bands - what are they like in reality? We also add to the new-old iPad discussion because it's flat-out fun.

An iPhone / MacBook hybrid... it very well could be a thing! How does it relate to the newly announced Samsung Dex? Listen to find out. The ACCC also delivers a smackdown denial to the trio of big banks over Apple Pay in Australia.

Workflow (now owned by Apple) is fast, fun and free - get the app here.
