This week, on the AppleInsider Podcast, your hosts talk about Apple’s release of the M2 Pro and M2 Max in updated MacBook Pro models, the new Mac mini, and HomePod’s rebirth with new features.

First, a PSA to say that the AppleInsider Daily podcast isn’t going anywhere. Instead, a rolling cast of AppleInsider staffers will be reading the news, so be sure to subscribe to get the latest Apple headlines every day.

In this weekly podcast, though, your AppleInsider hosts discuss Apple’s latest event-that-wasn’t shared through press releases that revealed the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, updated Macs, and the new HomePod. Apple is off to a big start for 2023, but rumors are already suggesting that we’ll see the M3 processor and a new MacBook Air before the end of the year.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro didn’t get any external aesthetic updates, but there are new processors, Wi-Fi 6E, and the HDMI port can support up to 8K output. Apple also updated the Mac mini with the M2 and M2 Pro.

The large HomePod is back, and your hosts discuss their home audio setups and what they’ve ordered from Apple. The speaker’s internals has been reconfigured, and a new processor promises improved computational audio.

That’s all great news for fans of the original HomePod, but there is some sadder information. We lament the demise of third-party Twitter clients — and look at how this changes the platform as a whole.
