Vergecast: MacBook Air M2 review, Elon vs. Twitter, and Apple beta season

The Vergecast, where Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel, editor-at-large David Pierce, and managing editor Alex Cranz discuss the week in tech news with the reporters and editors covering the biggest stories.

On today’s episode, Nilay, David, and Alex chat with Verge reviews editor Dan Seifert about our review of Apple’s newly designed MacBook Air with the M2 processor. We’ve always considered the MacBook Air the best Apple laptop for most users — is that still true?

Of course, we couldn’t let the week slip by without wading into the latest news in the “Elon Musk buys Twitter” saga. Verge senior reporter Liz Lopatto returns to break it all down and explain what options will be left once this goes to chancery court.

In the final segment, we focus on the betas coming out of Cupertino this week. David has strong feelings about iPadOS 16 and the new Stage Manager feature.
