t's happening! Apple has sent out invitations to an event on October 30th in Brooklyn, NY. Lory Gil and Rene Ritchie are here to wander and wonder about the features coming to new iPad Pros and a possible update to Mac mini. They also discuss new additions to Apple's privacy site, and CEO Tim Cook has called for Bloomberg to retract an article about alleged hardware hacks on servers used by the company.

iPhone XR preorders are now available! It may not generate the same amount of frenzy as its more expensive siblings, but Rene and Lory talk about how it is anything but an entry-level phone — and why it's probably the best choice for most users.

Finally, Adobe is bringing Photoshop to iPad in 2019. They say it is "real" Photoshop, but, as Rene explains, that doesn't necessarily mean "full" Photoshop.

Right now, in our very own galaxy, a small band of freedom fighters are here to deliver the not-so-secret Apple news of the week.* Rene Ritchie, Georgia Dow, and Mikah Sargent give a sneak peek at Rene's awesome new Siri Shortcuts video, and they follow up on the alleged Chinese hack of Supermicro server hardware.

Rene reviews the Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 and explains why it's the aluminum Apple Watch to get — as long as you don't want the gold color option. In addition, Google announced the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL this week. There are a couple good features Apple should consider "borrowing" for future iPhones.

Finally, the crew gaze into the crystal ball of iPad Pro rumors as they try to devine what capabilities it may include.

*No Bothans died to make this episode, but Lory "General Grevious" Gil lost her voice and had to sit this one out.

Steve Jobs passed away seven years ago — the iMore show begins on a somber note as the team reflect on his contributions to the world as a technology and creative visionary.

Rene Ritchie, Lory Gil, and Mikah Sargent put on their tin foil hats for a discussion about Bloomberg's bombshell article about chips being secretly placed into servers sold to companies like Apple and Amazon. Both companies have refuted claims made in the article, so what's the truth? The coverup can be worse than the crime. They also talk about Tim Cook's recent statements regarding Apple privacy policies and the lengths they go to protect user data.

Will Apple host an event in October to unveil new iPad and Macs, or will the products receive a simple press release? Finally, Lory and Mikah 'Muricasplain the United States national alert system to Rene. Tune in!
