There was an awful lot to unpack from WWDC 2022. One thing missing was any reference to Apple TV+, the TV box and app, or tvOS. We did get some further insight into Apple’s interest in sport, though. (This episode was recorded just before Apple announced its decade-long MLS deal - thanks guys!)
Hot off the plane from California, the Irish Independent’s Tech Editor Adrian Weckler explains what it was like to be back at Apple Park, the value of in-person events, his takeaways from the announcements, and why it looks like Craig Federighi is being groomed to be the next Apple CEO. Adrian questions Charlotte’s theory that Apple is interested in taking on The Athletic directly. Furthermore, there is a discussion about Apple’s new deal with Nike to produce sports-related content. Is two of the world’s most powerful brands teaming up actually a good thing for consumers?
