Jason Snell is leading MacBreak Weekly as Leo Laporte is out this week. Apple initially blocked Epic's return to its App Store due to Tim Sweeney tweeting about Apple, then reversed their decision. Zuckerberg defends the Meta Quest 3 after someone criticized the headset on Threads. And could Apple TV+ follow a similar path to other streaming services and offer an ad-tier service?

  • DMA be damned, Apple cuts off path to Epic Games Store, Fortnite on EU iPhones.
  • Epic’s App Store developer account restored in Europe once again.
  • More options for apps distributed in the European Union.
  • Apple will allow users to download apps directly from a developer’s website, in latest EU App Store rule change.
  • visionOS 1.1 improves Personas, adds MDM support.
  • Zuck insists Quest 3 is also a computer and not just for games in latest Vision Pro criticism.
  • No currently available camera is high-res enough for Apple Vision Pro.
  • M3 MacBook Air Review: More of a good thing.
  • Hector Martin: "So the M3 can now drive 2 exte…" - Treehouse Mastodon
  • Why ads on Apple TV+ are as inevitable as a 'Ted Lasso' spinoff.
