MacVoices
The talk of the Apple community

The MacVoices Live! panel of Chuck JoinerDavid GinsburgPatrice Brend’Amour,Jim ReaBrian Flanigan-ArthursWeb BixbyEric BoldenJeff GametMark FuccioKelly GuimontBen Roethig, and Guy Serle finish up their discussion of Apple’s Wanderlust event with some (for now) final conclusions. They highlight the iPhone 15 Pro's hardware ray tracing and USB-C port, which offer great benefits for 3D work and accessory options, and debate the size options, questioning whether purchasing the Pro models is not necessary unless you need faster USB-C speed and 5x zoom. The line between the 15 and 15 Pro is blurring, and the panel can’t fully agree on who which model is for. (Part 3)
