What's in this episode?

In Episode 25 of Apple Slice Podcast, we take a trip down memory lane and touch on some retrospective questions of what was our first year as a podcast.

Simon positively cuts the cord with AirPods - in-depth review available here. Apple Music add in House of Strombo for that Canadian factor, and trademark lingerie... among other things. Apple employees also rejoice with a new Activity Rings reward program (jealous).

Apple pull a rare pre-announcement for some real Pro-gress - new Mac Pro, Pro Display and iMacs in the pipeline (concept here). Trials of a diabetic breakthrough for Apple Watch are also underway; a major move for the medical industry.

Can Apple find their place among the sea of Snapchats and Sprinkles? We get real with our review of Clips - grab the app here.
