John Gruber killed it on Daring Fireball this week, but the capper is this podcast interview with Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi:
Topics include: the new features in Apple’s upcoming OS releases (iOS 9.3 and tvOS 9.2); why Apple is expanding its public beta program for OS releases; iTunes’s monolithic design; how personally involved Eddy and Craig are in using, testing, and installing beta software; the sad decline of Duke’s men’s basketball team; and more.
Some scoops too, including: the weekly number of iTunes and App Store transactions, an updated Apple Music subscriber count, peak iMessage traffic per second, and the number of iCloud account holders.
I love Apple’s new approach, letting its executives talk more, show personality, answer questions, and appear on podcasts.
