Beta this week. iOS15.2 Beta 4 was release today,
Apple TV, Apple TV, and Apple TV+. You have a device, and aggregator app, and a paid streaming service. We discuss why we think Apple chose to use basically the same name for all 3 and review what each do.
Apple TV Streaming box comes in a 4K and HD model. We discuss if it’s worth the higher price vs other streaming devices like Roku.
Apple TV app is available on the Apple TV box as well as most SmartTVs plug Roku and more.
Apple TV+ is the paid service with original content including Ted Lasso, Foundation, and the latest movie from Tom Hanks Fitch, its $4.99 per month with a 3 month free trial with purchase of an Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, Mac, or iPod Touch.
Dave reviews wireless CarPlay which was his gift guide pick from last week. The brand is Carlinkit and they have different models for different model years. He reviews how it works and if it’s a solid choice.
