Every Wednesday and Friday, The Verge publishes our flagship podcast, The Vergecast, where our editors make sense of the week’s most important technology news. On Fridays, Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel, editor-at-large David Pierce, and managing editor Alex Cranz discuss the week in tech news with the reporters and editors covering the biggest stories.
Today’s episode focuses on The Verge’s reviews of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, Apple Watch Series 8, and iOS 16. The crew discusses whether the updates to the hardware are worth upgrading to or if updating to the new software is good enough. Of course, there is a lot of talk about the Dynamic Island, Apple’s solution to the front camera notch.
If you’re still wondering whether this generation of the iPhone and Apple Watch is the one you should get, this episode may be worth a listen.
