We discuss our initial thoughts on iOS 7.

Overall we’re impressed. We think it’s a step forward for mobile OSes, but it is a little buggy. It is the best version of iOS 7 yet, and should really improve with iOS 7.1.

Episode 84: Early thoughts on iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c

We give our early thoughts on the iPhone 5s and 5c.

Who is the iPhone 5c for? We think smartphones have hit an inflection point where companies like Apple can release smartphones with different levels of computing power in them each year and not have lower models feel outdated, just like computers have been sold for the last few decades. The iPhone 5, which has the same internals as the iPhone 5c, still feels really fast a year later running iOS 7.

We think kids are the big target audience for the iPhone 5c. It’s priced to be a Christmas or birthday gift, and it allows for more expression.

We’re particularly excited by Touch ID, considering so few of you actually secure your smartphones in any way. Please secure your smartphone with at least a four digit PIN. It’s the future of Touch ID and mobile payments that excites us.
