This week on The Vergecast, Nilay, Dieter, and Paul call Ben Popper — former business editor at The Verge who now works with DJI — to answer some questions about the new drone the company announced this week, the Mavic Air. There is also a discussion about what’s happening at Apple this week. The HomePod was announced without some key features at launch in a few weeks. There’s also an update to iOS 11 that’s being publicly previewed on their website.
