With fall fast approaching, you can be sure of two things: football games and new phones! Apple and other vendors recently announced new editions of their phones, as well as some interesting new gadgets. With new options like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, iOS 8, and Apple Pay, Apple-using lawyers need to think about which products they need (or want) and how to make the best use of them. But what about those lawyers who have moved to other product vendors such as Android? Most lawyers could use an update on the newest technology to make informed autumn purchases.

In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss the new Apple devices, thoughts on the new features of iOS 8, and what lawyers should think about if they haven’t already purchased a new phone lately. They discuss the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, embracing the “phablet”, and how most people use their smartphone as more of a mobile computer than a phone. They also discuss other new products such as the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Apple Watch, the Moto 360 watch, and why lawyers might prefer Android or Apple products. With the release of iOS 8 comes new exciting features such as extensions, alternate keyboards, and widgets, but both Kennedy and Mighell had to deal with long downloading times. They wrap up the first part of this podcast by examining the future of Apple Pay, why it might succeed where Google Wallet failed, and how lawyers could utilize these changes to get ahead in their practice.

After the break, the Kennedy and Mighell discuss the Apple Watch and other wearable technology in more detail. As people begin to use wearable devices to gain and save information, the amount of discoverable data will increase immensely and it will be important for lawyers to pay attention. As always, stay tuned for Parting Shots, that one tip, website, or observation that you can use the second the podcast ends.
