Apple’s beta versions of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 were released to the public this week, and The Verge’s Dieter Bohn was able to preview the new features, which you can now try for yourself.

This week on The Vergecast, co-hosts Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn welcome back deputy editor Dan Seifert to examine what’s new in the updated iPhone operating system. From home screen widgets to default browser apps to putting captions of photos, the crew covers everything they experienced from using the software themselves.

In the second half of the show, they discuss the news of Google discontinuing its budget smartphone, the Pixel 3A, before any announcement of releasing the next-generation Pixel 4A. What does this mean for the future of Google’s hardware ambitions? The Vergecast theorizes.

There’s a whole lot more in between all of that — like Apple’s commitment to support Thunderbolt on its upcoming ARM-based Macs, the rumors about what will be announced at Samsung’s upcoming hardware event, and a grab-bag of gadget news to get you through the week — so listen through to hear it all.
