MacVoices #17189: The MacJury on Apple’s September 12 Announcements

Shortly after things wrapped up at Apple’s September 12 event, The MacJury convened to provide some thoughts on the many announcements, and the event itself. The first event at the new Steve Jobs Theater delivered some interesting changes in the presentation style along with new products. The panel discusses the Apple Watch Series 3 and questions over cellular data plans, whether the automatic 4K upgrades change the value of the Apple TV 4K, and how the upgrades to the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus stack up. The iPhone X gets plenty of attention from the panel of Tonya Engst, Don McAllister, Ken Ray, and host Chuck Joiner.
