Lory and Joe talk about the evolution of Apple Music, the rebranding of Beats 1 to Apple 1, and the addition of two more radio stations. They also catch up on the ever-evolving battle between Epic Games and Apple as Epic pushes for the right to host their own app store on iPhone and iPad.

Our classic rock duo speculate on when Apple might announce products in their fall lineup, and there's a CBS/Showtime bundle available to Apple TV+ subscribers for $9.99.

Fortnite developer Epic Games is lobbying for significant rules changes in the App Store and put their enormously popular game on the line with a policy violating update that enabled in-app purchases outside of Apple's ecosystem. Apple responded by removing Fortnite, but Epic was immediately prepared with their next two chess moves — a lawsuit, and a parody video of Apple's famous '1984' Macintosh commercial intended to win Epic favor in the court of popular opinion.

Joe, Georgia, and Lory are here to break down what this all means for users. They also have rumors of 'Apple One' which could bundle various services at a discounted price. There's also the possibility of Apple selling access to their own virtual fitness classes. Stay Tuned!

New 27" iMac models are here! Armed with 10-gen Intel processors, are they the last of their kind? The macOS Big Sur public beta has been released, and the gang have a rundown of what's new in the upcoming operating system.

The crew also talk about the Executive Order from President Trump, which would effectively ban WeChat and TikTok. Apple and Microsoft are trading barbs as Microsoft has pulled their game streaming service out of beta on iOS due to what they claim are unfair Apple Store policies on Apple's part.
