Wouldn’t surprise be one bit if Apple sends pre-approved scripts/talking points along with these devices.

That being said, I did order an S7 and I’m super hyped for it. But these YouTubers are nothing but corporate shills.

That’s why Rene has been defending the Series 7 on Twitter.

I can't watch Rene anymore . He finds every excuse possible for Apple product design no matter how controversial.
I can't stand the guy, he's such a sheep and does everything possible to kiss ass so that he gets early product reviews.

His defending of the iOS 15 iCloud scanning stuff on twitter was truly disgraceful even when told he was wrong on his "facts", he just ran away.

His teenager clickbait thumbnails are also pathetic.

At least Justine knows her role as Tims pet and is pretty open about it, Rene pretends to be a real reporter.

I'm sure she's a super nice person, but iJustine for me is the most irritating YouTuber out there that talks about Apple products. If you like her I'm not knocking you for that, but to me she is the absolute worst.
She is Tim Cook’s pet. Think of it as a teachers pet. I’m pretty sure Apple is paying her under the table or something. She will never have anything bad to say about Apple. When the whole CSAM was unfolding with Apple iJustine and other YouTubers disappeared real quick. Go figure!
