Over the last couple of months, Apple has launched some pretty awesome devices and features that are pretty pertinent to parents – from Family Set-Up to the new HomePod Mini – and a few other things in between. So, on this episode of Out-Tech Your Kids, we’re talking about a few of our favorite new features and gadgets that we think parents should have on their radar, and why. Yes, while we love when our pals at CNET or TechCrunch talk about the A14 Bionic chip, we know parents want to know if it’s kid-proof or how it will help make our lives easier and better.

You can listen right now, and then be sure you’re a podcast subscriber so you never miss an episode. You can also join our Out-Tech Your Kids Facebook group to ask your tech questions and chat about all things digital parenting. We’d love to have you.
