'M1X' iMac delayed, iOS 15 Safari design struggles, and Apple's Q3 earnings on the AppleInsider podcast

On the AppleInsider podcast this week, your hosts discuss leaks surrounding the “M1X” iMac and a 2022 release, Apple’s struggles to finalize Safari’s design in iOS 15, incredible Q3 earnings, and more!

Apple exceeded all analyst expectations during its Q3 earnings call touting $81.3 billion in total revenue. That’s a 36% increase over last year. CEO Tim Cook touted that iPad had its highest June quarter in nearly a decade. Compounding that, 75% of Apple Watch buyers globally were new to the product.

Multiple rumors covering the Mac lineup came out this week, including a claim that Apple’s high-end Apple Silicon iMac may not arrive until 2022. In addition, leaker YuuKi_AnS tweeted that the 2022 Mac Pro would sport an Intel chip, missing Apple’s deadline to transition all Macs to Apple Silicon.

Our hosts briefly review their real-world experience with the MagSafe Battery Pack. Its trickle-charge speeds may disappoint some, but Apple’s battery pack will certainly help users get through a full day with medium to light use.

The fourth betas of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey are out and Safari’s design continues to be a point of contention. On iPad, Apple now gives users the option to place tabs below the address bar, or alongside as initially released. While the iPhone version of Safari still struggles with usability and a multitude of touch targets in a small area.
