Hands on with iPhone 11 & iPhone 11 Pro

In this episode, we go over all the big announcements from Apple’s iPhone 11 launch event. Andru was in Cupertino for the event and gives his hands-on impressions of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, and we discuss the meaning of the “Pro” naming scheme for the iPhone and tech products in general.

There’s also a new Apple Watch Series 5 (finally sporting an always-on display!) and a couple of new finishes, and Apple has seemingly set up Apple TV+ to become the number one streaming video service in the world in the next 12 months - we show you the math!

Geared Up: New Nintendo Switch Consoles, Apple Kills the MacBook, & Galaxy Note 10 Crazy Battery!

The Death of the Xbox

On this week's Geared Up, we talk about the two new Nintendo Switch consoles that were announced this past week - the Nintendo Switch Lite and the Nintendo Switch with refreshed battery. In the case of the Switch Lite, we are getting a new handheld-only portable console with a cheaper price and some caveats. Over on the standard Switch front, we were expecting a pro version of the Switch as well, but instead got the same hardware with increased battery life.

Apple has significantly changed its laptop computer lineup with the release of a cheaper MacBook Air and the addition of premium features on the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro while simultaneously killing the 12-inch MacBook and the older entry-level MacBook Air. We go over why this actually provides clarity for anyone looking to buy an Apple laptop.

Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Note 10 at an event on August 7th at the Barclays Center, and rumors and dropping left and right about the new flagship devices in the weeks leading up to the reveal. The latest focuses on a very unique feature for the Note 10 battery that may make charging anxiety a thing of the past!
