On the AppleInsider podcast, we review the Apple Watch Series 7 review, analyze in depth the new MacBook Pro configurations, compare the new AirPods with the AirPods Pro, and also explore the recording of the podcast with the iPad Pro.

This episode was only recorded on the iPad Pro. We discuss the configuration used by each host, plus exactly what is needed to facilitate quality recording even when traveling without a Mac.

As for what the podcast really is, let's start with how our review of the Apple Watch Series 7 highlighted improvements in display size compared to previous models. While the latest Apple Watch has no new health sensors or a new processor, its increased screen size may be enough to persuade users to upgrade.

Moving on to Apple's announcements at its "Unleased" event, the new Apple Music Voice Plan has left some in doubt. We are discussing who could benefit from this new $ 4.99 per month plan, plus what are our own current practices in organizing music.

Then, the long-awaited third-generation AirPods were released, adding Spatial Audio and a new design to the popular Apple headphones. Even with the more expensive and officially "better" AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, some users may prefer the noise-free nature of these new AirPods.

Next, it's time to really delve into the details of the new 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, including the return of old ports such as HDMI and SD card slot. More details on electric bricks and fast charging through MagSafe have emerged, including an additional $ 20 fee for fast charging the 14-inch MacBook Pro.

Finally, we discuss the M1 Max Geekbench scores that have emerged and the configurations offered by Apple - compared to Intel's past processor choices.
