The post-Stephen era of this podcast makes for an odd dynamic, swinging between the tech uninformed uncle and the pedantic nephew. The show now zigzags between moments of “can you help me reset my itunes password?” and “well, actually”… Update after a few weeks: The chemistry between the hosts...Read full review »

I enjoy the passion and knowledge for Apple you both share. You two make a good podcast team.

Stephen was great, William is splendid. The two of them had such a great dynamic. Wes was always my least favorite host and now that he’s full time I had to unsubscribe. He has this weird obsession with Elon Musk and keeps throwing his far left political views into the show. I couldn’t tell you...Read full review »

Not what it was.

Back before Stephen left, I really enjoyed this podcast. Stephen and William had great chemistry, and Stephen and Wes wasn’t bad either. But William and Wes just has never had the same chemistry. Whenever Stephen couldn’t record an episode for one reason or another, the William+Wes episodes were...Read full review »

This is a nice show, podcasters do good ground work but it’s sometimes not interesting as they try to praise Apple with undue respect and dump non-Apple products. Even they ridicule windows a lot. We are all Apple fans but be moderate and neutral when it comes to critics not praising Apple for...Read full review »

Can’t continue to subscribe with Wes as host. Wes stick to writing where you can be free to comment on politics but I listen to learn about Apple and not listen to your bloody dribble.

This was one of the better podcasts on all things Apple with Robles but since he’s departed, it’s gone downhill quite a bit. I always enjoyed the shows w/Robles and Gallagher and much less the ones w/Hilliard and Robles. Now that it always Hilliard and Gallagher its more irritating than...Read full review »

Love this podcast. Not only do I find the topics interesting and engaging but I can also just get on with things with Apple insider in the background. However, Wes, I feel constantly interrupts and is somewhat plain rude to to William who is a gentlemen and fellow brummie. Wes’s disdain for X and...Read full review »

I like the show, but I’m not loving the audio quality. I’m not sure if it’s the mic’s or the mixing, but sometimes the audio quality forces me to turn it off.

Rapport is so important when listening to these podcasts, and these gents need a drink together to get over the awkwardness.

Latest episode’s editing was HORRIBLE. Lots of dead space, hosts were edited to be talking over each other and couldn’t understand what either was saying. Seems like the show is going down hill content wise and quality of the editing since Stephen Robles left for his own things. You guys are...Read full review »

I originally didn’t think I listened to the show just because of Stephen but now that he is gone it is difficult to make it through an episode. Wes is ok at best in small doses every other week but now that he is on every episode he never stops talking. Wes and William do not seem to have have...Read full review »
tardis7229 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/24
One of my pet hates are podcasters who tout their opinion as fact Wesley Hilliard is one such podcaster Arrogant and not interested in balance as his view is spouted as fact rather than a debatable point of view and patronises and talks over his co-host A person who so loves the sound of his...Read full review »

I get it. You don’t like Elon Musk. I hear it in all you off side comments. I want to listen to the show for Apple News not your political views.
BBenton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/24
I like both of the hosts, but there doesn’t seem to be much chemistry between them now without Stephen. Wes is knowledgeable but talks too much and hijacks every topic. He doesn’t seem to enjoy the fun stuff about Apple, like indulging in some of the more interesting rumors or speculation....Read full review »

Love this podcast. The hosts are very knowledgeable and informative and I enjoy their camaraderie. Wes is excellent at explaining technology to the average user. Keep up the great work. I’ll be listening.
Suzanne4c via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/24
Very informative
RR1152 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/24
While I love the technical info presented here, I really identified with Wesley’s comment about being in a room with sports enthusiasts and sitting in a corner eating chicken wings. Now that was insightful!
Victoria10Dave via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/24/24
This surpasses ATP, and others like it, as the very best  podcast on the market. Very likeable and relatable hosts make it a great listening experience. There isn’t that obnoxious rambling that I find is increasingly annoying, and commonplace, in other  focused podcasts. Always on point and...Read full review »

Sour Puss Mike only thinks he can see new paradigms. Clearly just a dinosaur keyboard guy that is married to his old school habits. I was shocked that he can’t envision the new opportunities the VP platform enables. Not worth listening to.
googull via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/24
Well…I am unfollowing. This show used to be one of my favorites. Now, it is the vehicle for Wes Hilliard to condescend his audience, his cohost, and all technophiles. I honestly can’t believe how many times we had to listen to the fact that he was writing the review for the Apple Vision Pro. If I...Read full review »

I unsubscribed on the other tech podcast because I found my favorite tech podcast: AppleInsider! Support from the Philippines.
JonValdez via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 01/15/24
…You are great! Wes seems a bit uncertain. Don’t be. William is a little bit more ironic than before (Stephen left). Best wishes from Duisburg/Germany! And William should definitely watch Ted Lasso!

Everyone is taught in elementary school that only women menstruate, yet he says “people who menstruate”. Y’all have a room temperature IQ host.
romeroeli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/24
Wes & William are 2 of my favorite people to listen to on podcasts. I was sad when Stephen left, but was excited when I found out they were taking over. I was afraid the show would go away entirely, which would be a shame. I’m not sure why so many are complaining about Wes, he does a great...Read full review »

Great Apple content for those that want to know, and a lovely friendly atmosphere to boot. Keep up the good work gents!
Cheeseblat via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/29/23
Since Stephen left, Wes has hijacked the conversations and the meandering is maddening. His defense of everything that Apple does is now unchecked. I like William quite a bit, but he seems too polite to cut Wes off when needed. Apple Insider needs a host to steer the ship or listenership is gonna...Read full review »

This podcast is very interesting but it would be nice if Wes would let the second person talk more but overall great pod!!

I used to listen every Friday like clockwork when Stephen was host. Now it is Tuesday and I was like “oh yeah, I might as well put that on.” I am sorry I did. Wes has some good technical knowledge and was always opinionated but held somewhat in check by Stephen, but no more. Now it is...Read full review »

Always difficult when a podcast host changes, but having people that have been involved regularly taking over always helps and adding in familiar faces from the AppleInsider family is always good. Keep going it’s my number source for all things apple

More William, much less Wesley. He seems to enjoy hearing himself speak too much. The last episode was extremely boring.
3cpo 11 via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 12/15/23
I keep trying to come back and Wes is an absolute shill. Defends everything Apple. Incredibly boring personality as well.
Seth (WiiDSmoker) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/23
I’ve been listening to AppleInsiders for years and look forward to listening each week! Sorry to hear that Stephen has moved on but Wes and William did a great job this week!
JCB_56 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/23
Steven, you are not allowed to leave this podcast. You are one of the main reasons that this is my favorites podcast. All joking aside I hope whatever you chose to do I hope you are happy and I just want to thank you for being such a great host.
can you be my mom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/23
You just convinced me to relent and buy the MacBook Pro you bought and cancelled so many times. I know the feeling. Sorry to hear your going, you’ll be missed. Blessings on you future endeavors!

Love the show sad Steven is leaving! He keeps William grounded with his calming voice haha

Happy 500th Episode! From Brisbane, Australia. This is by far my favourite Apple news podcast. That was even before my rainbow Apple logo & Command key logo tattoos were mentioned on the show haha Easy to listen to, funny & informative.

So sorry to hear that Stephen Robles is leaving this podcast. He has been a joy to listen to, with wonderful insights, a wonderful speaking voice and a most pleasant personality. He leaves behind big shoes to be filled and I wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
VictoriaDave1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/24/23
Stephen and William are really great together in reporting Apple news. They both have very clear voices and enjoyable repartee.

Hey guys! We love your show, and listen to it in the car. we are trying to settle a family dispute. we’re ready to upgrade our tweens 2016 MacBook Pro to an M2 MacBook Air.
