15-inch MacBook Air Rumors, iOS 16.3 Features, iPhone Side Loading

The AppleInsider Podcast covers side-loading and more

Advanced data protection, HomeKit issues, a 15-inch MacBook Air is in the works, and the EU may force Apple to allow app sideloading and third-party app stores — all in this week’s AppleInsider Podcast.

iOS 16.2, iPadOS 16.2, macOS Ventura 13.1 and the other operating systems have been updated with support for Freeform and iPad external displays. Your hosts will discuss the new features, including Apple Music Sing and the HomeKit architecture update.

Advanced data protection and physical security keys give users greater protection, but some settings are more intrusive than others. Activating advanced data protection can be a struggle, especially for those with multiple older products still signed in to their Apple ID.
