This week’s top stories: Inside Apple’s new MacBook Pros, Apple’s new “TV” app, Apple Watch Nike+, and much more

In this week’s top stories: Apple’s new MacBook Pro unveiling, the new Apple “TV” app, watchOS 3.1 and Apple Watch Nike+, iOS 10.1 with Portrait Mode gets a public release, and much more. 

We kick things off with Apple’s big press event where it unveiled all-new MacBook Pros this week. We give you the rundown on specs, pricing, availability and a comparison on the new models, and we also dive deep into answering some questions Apple didn’t answer on stage ahead of a release date in the coming weeks. Apple also shows off a new Apple “TV” app at the event arriving for users in the U.S. this December.

We talk iOS 10.1 with Portrait Mode following a public release alongside watchOS 3.1 and the launch of the Apple Watch Nike+ this week. And Jeff gives you first impressions of the Google Pixel from an iPhone user’s perspective in this week’s top video.
