Behold The Beard! Jim Dalrymple of The Loop joins Mikah Sargent, Georgia Dow, Lory Gil, and Rene Ritchie for a jam packed episode. What's up with iPhone XS skin smoothing for portraits? The consensus is there's definitely something going on with the processing. Additionally, the XS speakers seem to have improved stereo imaging compared to previous iPhones.

And among other things, they discuss Qualcomm vs. Intel modem performance, Facebook's data breach, and why the screen on iPhone XR isn't 1080p (and why that doesn't matter). Rock on!

Mikah Sargent, Georgia Dow, and Lory Gil are here to talk about all the new hotness from Cupertino! Apple Watch Series 4 has the potential to save lives, but the technology it contains could feed into health anxiety for some people. iPhone XS and XS Max build on the technology from last year's iPhone X, while the XR joins the fray with a more affordable price and some lucious color options.

The gang talk about what they've ordered and what they're still thinking about. Finally, pour one out for Lory's little buddy, iPhone SE!

Finally, will the upcoming event include iPads and Macs as one more thing(s), or will there be a separate event for those later this fall? Jump into the iHole with us!
