- Apple Watch Series 2
With the launch of the iPhone today, Josh, Matt and I got together to record some of our thoughts on the launch of the latest Apple devices, as well as the new Apple Watch Series 2. There has been some discussion online regarding the new A10 Fusion SoC, and what exactly those smaller cores are (or how they are being used), as well as new modems and how the company has removed the 3.5mm audio jack. We found time to record a second podcast at the same time regarding a few other non-Apple devices, so stay tuned as we edit that and upload it soon!

witeken - Friday, September 16, 2016 - linkCMON guys. If you mention Anand, then why not tell us what he's doing up there. Is he the mastermind behind A10? Did the ditch the 3.5 mm audio jack?
Ryan Smith - Friday, September 16, 2016 - linkIn all seriousness, whatever Anand is doing is top secret. I don't know, and no one else seems to know either.
tipoo - Friday, September 16, 2016 - linkI really hope Apple throws us nerds a bone one day and gets him on stage to explain something about a new chip :P
WinterCharm - Sunday, October 2, 2016 - linkThat would be amazing. :D
JoshHo - Saturday, September 17, 2016 - linkI have never been told his position at Apple. I do not know any of this information. The same applies for Brian Klug.
Dennis Travis - Saturday, September 17, 2016 - linkThat is the way Apple is with people who work for them. It's not the fault of Anand nor Brian at all. If they want to keep their positions there at Apple they have to keep quiet about what they do there.
powerarmour - Friday, September 16, 2016 - linkYes, let's ditch all the indepth GPU reviews and do multiple Apple articles instead, our readers will love that eh?
JoshHo - Saturday, September 17, 2016 - linkIan, Matt, and I are not responsible for GPU coverage here. The organization of AnandTech is such that each editor has their own area of coverage that they are responsible for. The recording and editing of this podcast does not have an impact on GPU coverage.
