What's in this episode?

For a typically quiet month, a lot happened in the Apple arena recently. Clips, thought to be forgotten, receives a surprise update, while the mid-tier iPhone SE could soon see a swift spec bump! Apple also pen their machine learning love in journal form while The Rock and Siri excel at well… everything in a hilarious ’short film’

The contention of the Apple vs FBI saga has trickled its way down under with a proposed encryption ban - yes it’s the Aussie government taking on Apple… this may get messy. On a brighter note, Simon gives a glowing review on the 10.5” iPad Pro and first impressions of ‘Photoshop killer’ Affinity Photo.

It’s also wrist-on with the latest Nike Sport Band, and some interesting rumours surface on batteries. Yes, batteries.
