This week, it’s Apple’s turn to take over The Vergecast. Dieter, Jake, and Lauren just returned from WWDC (Nilay and Paul watched from afar), so the gang has a lot to talk about regarding the new products that were announced.

Nilay went on Lauren’s show Too Embarrassed to Ask, while Jake and Dieter joined Nilay and Paul for Vergecast.

Ben Popper also stops by the show to talk about DJI’s newest drone, the Spark.
