MacBites is the UK based podcast for all things Apple related, presented by Elaine Giles and Mike Thomas (aka The MacBites Crew).
Through the podcast, website and newsletter, we bring you tips and tricks and valuable first hand experiences of the Mac platform, iPhone, iPad, iPod and AppleTV … and anything else Apple may tempt us with.
As well as the podcast, the legendary MacBites Live chatroom is THE place to be when there’s an Apple announcement. Elaine, Mike and The MacBiters enjoy the friendly, vibrant environment to chat and debate about the latest news from Cupertino.

Got to be the best UK podcast on iTunes!HoodedWitch
Once again The MacBites Crew and the MacBiters came together to watch, listen and chat. There was definitely more chat though as we were less than impressed with what Apple served up.
Dusky Peach with a Hint of Pink
Thanks to AppleLeaks there were no surprises this time. But we had fun in the chat and that’s what it’s all about – a bunch of Apple Geeks (aka The MacBiters) getting together to watch the event and provide our own analysis – which is usually more entertaining that the main event!
Kidnapping Craig’s Cat
Two new iPhones, the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil and a new AppleTv. Some games demos and some TV programmes. But the biggest surprise of the evening was the appearance of Microsoft on stage for the iPad demo.
What The Actual? From the video at the beginning to the guy from Beats (was he included in the transfer fee?) to Drake (who?). This definitely rated amongst the worst Keynotes for many years. Even Hairforce One looked uncomfortable.
Without the Aid of a Safety Net
The thinnest ever MacBook was announced along with the most expensive watch ever but that didn’t deter the MacBiters gathered in the chatroom from having fun. If you missed it, the video is right here!

MacBites the iBook
iBooks Author, a tool for creating eBooks, was released by Apple in January 2012. Within two weeks of the launch, Elaine had created an eBook (or iBook as Apple like to call it) of almost 100 pages that showcased all the great features of the application.
MacBites The iBook takes you on a journey from October 2007, when MacBites began, through to January 2012. Here’s just a few highlights of the book:
