The MacRumors Show: WWDC 2023 Recap and Vision Pro First Impressions With Andru Edwards and Kevin Nether

Andru Edwards and Kevin Nether join us on The MacRumors Show this week from the Apple Podcasts studio in Apple Park to discuss first impressions of the Vision Pro headset and the wave of other announcements the company made at WWDC this year.


We talk through first-hand experience of what the Vision Pro headset is actually like, including comfort, control input, and mixed-reality experiences. We also touch on the Apple silicon Mac Pro, refreshed Mac Studio, and 15-inch MacBook Air, as well as some of our favorite new software features from iOS 17, iPadOS 17, tvOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS Sonoma.

My resistance to it is that it's such an isolating device.

I totally get this, and VP might be the most isolating yet, but I feel that way about our current devices. Headphones, laptops, phones — the users’ attention is rarely shared with others. It will be interesting to see how this device contributes to user isolation over the next decade.
