Quinn has created Apple and consumer tech videos for his popular YouTube channel, "Snazzy Labs," since 2008. See his work on the Snazzy Labs YouTube channel and follow him on Twitter @SnazzyQ.

In this episode, we initially discuss some of the standout features in iOS 16.2, including Apple Music Sing, the Freeform app, and Advanced Data Protection for iCloud, before moving on to the biggest ‌iPhone 15‌ rumors to date, including the switch to an "Ultra" title for the "Pro Max" model, a titanium chassis with curved rear edges, adding a USB-C port in place of Lightning, and an all-new 6x optical zoom periscope telephoto camera lens. We also look at some of the most likely impending controversies regarding the devices, such as USB 2.0 speeds on the standard ‌iPhone 15‌ models despite the switch to USB-C and the potential problems brought on by moving to solid-state volume and power buttons.

Snazzy Labs is one of the better Apple centric YouTube channels IMO. He has no problem giving Apple criticism when it's deserved as well as praise.. His channel has evolved nicely

I think this has come up before and I'm pretty sure they both have a standing invitation. I know everyone wants to see both of them.

Strangely no one is clammering for Joz.

I passed on the 14 due to no USB-C because I shoot video that takes forever to transfer with Lightning and I'm tired of Apple's ignorant, slow transfer rate. If the 15 has crippled USB-C I will pass on that too.
