WWDC Podcasts: A Roundup of Episodes with Apple Special Guests

If you enjoy podcasts and Apple, your queue of episodes to check out has likely been bursting full since WWDC kicked off last Monday. So many great shows have been published with analysis and impressions of Apple’s announcements, but one thing that’s been particularly special is the number of podcasts that have featured guests from Apple over the last week. Here’s a roundup of episodes with Apple employees that you shouldn’t miss out on.


Our own Federico Viticci sat down last week with Craig Federighi, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, to discuss iPadOS, Shortcuts, Catalyst, and SwiftUI on the latest episode of AppStories.
