Today, our team brings you all of the ooey, gooey Apple WWDC 2023 keynote goodness, including everything about the Vision Pro AR. How do I know? I was keeping up with them the whole time. Don’t worry, not everything is Apple related today. We also have cuts at Spotify and some news about the Clop ransomware gang. This is your Daily Crunch for Monday.

Colleagues banked over 40 stories related to today’s Apple WWDC 2023. By far the most popular unveiling had to do with Apple’s Vision Pro AR headset. It’s going to set you back $3,499, but it has a boatload of features, including “EyeSight,” which uses a front-facing display to reveal your eyes to other people in the room so you’re not just behind some goggles. In addition, the user interface is more suited to everyday tasks, like email, rather than gaming, which is a departure from the norm. “With Vision Pro, you’re no longer limited by a display,” Apple CEO Tim Cook told the crowd at the keynote address. Get highlights from the keynote address here.

More from today that tickled your fancy:

Now let’s go over to Spotify, where the music-streaming company said it will cut 200 jobs within its podcast unit. This comes three years after the company made some big investments on podcasts. While these particular cuts are new, layoffs at Spotify are not. The company made significant cuts earlier this year. Find out more.
