Apple ID Issues, iPads For Blind People & A Meta Ray-Ban Review

Android 15 Talkback Updates

In this episode of Double Tap, hosts Steven Scott and Shaun Preece dive into a variety of tech topics, kicking off with an apology from Steven to Apple users for potentially causing a widespread need to reset Apple IDs – the conversation takes a humorous turn as they speculate on the cause and impact.

They then shift to discussing the implications of passwords in today’s digital age, advocating for the adoption of passkeys as a more convenient and secure alternative to traditional passwords. The episode also delves into the practicality of iPads for users who are blind, debating whether the device’s screen real estate and iPadOS offer a substantially different experience from iPhones for VoiceOver users.

The conversation takes an exciting turn with listener Gregg Hayes’ detailed review of the Meta Ray-Ban glasses. Gregg, who has access to the AI features not yet available in the UK where Steven and Shaun live, demonstrates the glasses’ capabilities, including asking for the weather, identifying objects, and navigating a strip mall with voice commands. He highlights how the glasses integrate with social media, music services, and enable hands-free operation, making them a potential game-changer for users who are blind or partially sighted. Gregg’s review sparks a discussion on the future of specialized devices, as mainstream products like the Meta Ray-Ban glasses begin to offer similar functionalities at a more affordable price.
