wwdc 2019: upgrades across devices announced on day one

OPENING OF APPLE’S DEVELOPER EXTRAVAGANZA DIDN’T DISAPPOINT So, with just one day done at WWDC 2019 at the time of writing, we’ve already been inundated with a host of exciting updates to the software we love. In fact, so much happened in the first few hours of the event that the only way we can really cover it effectively is by writing two articles. So, to get straight into Part One, what exactly went down at San Jose’s McEnery Convention Center on June 3? As usual, the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference kicked off with a detailed two-hour keynote. CEO Tim Cook took to the stage first, but it was senior vice president of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, who released the most important news in Apple software development that we’ve heard since last…

wwdc 2019 part 2: mac innovation and a first for the ipad

THE LEGENDARY TABLET FINALLY GETS ITS OWN OPERATING SYSTEM Last week, we looked at a number of key events from day one of WWDC 2019, Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. However, so much was revealed – even just on the first day – that we couldn’t possibly cover it all in a single article. In Part 2 of our WWDC 2019 review (or version 2.0 if you like!), we’ll take an in-depth look at two more key software announcements from day one, and round up the highlights from the rest of the event that ran from June 3 to 7. iPAD SOFTWARE TAKES A GIANT STEP FORWARD We’ll begin with some incredible news for iPad users, who are finally getting their own dedicated OS. The annual developers’ conference is traditionally the place where…

steve jobs’ brainchild has realized its potential

When the then-CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, prepared to unveil the cloud storage service iCloud back in 2011 , he described a world that you might barely recognize now: a world where any photos you take, videos you shoot, music you buy and other digital files are stored simply on your PC, “the digital hub of your digital life”. However, as you might recall if you are old enough, this arrangement faltered as many devices other than the PC began taking on further PC-like responsibilities. The days when a photo would scarcely last long on your phone before you quickly uploaded it to your PC are long gone. As Jobs acknowledged at the 2011 keynote of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) where iCloud would ultimately be announced, our PCs, phones and…

year in review: what happened in 2019

As 2019 comes to an end, it’s time to sit back and reflect on what has been an incredible year in the world of technology. This week, we’re delving deeper into the biggest stories and innovations of the year, covering Apple, social media, politics, Tesla, and foldable phones… A CHANGING SOCIAL MEDIA LANDSCAPE It would be impossible to discuss the biggest stories in the world of technology without giving a nod to social networking sites. Facebook started the year in a rough state, hot off the heels of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and other major data breaches and controversies , and though nobody can say the company has recovered, it has worked hard to rebuild trust and reputation amongst users and investors. The company announced in January that it planned to merge its…

why we shouldn’t get so outraged over kids’ screen time

THERE ARE HEALTH AND PRACTICAL REASONS NOT TO BE TOO WORRIED It’s always fascinating to read of the ‘moral panics’ that arise from time to time with regard to how much of our finite time we should spend looking at screens. Unless you’ve printed off this article, you’re presumably staring at a screen right now, and you may well work in a job that requires you to spend a large proportion of the day doing so. However, that doesn’t stop many of us being anxious about the subject of screen time – not least when it comes to our children. THE ARGUMENT OVER HOW MUCH SCREEN TIME OUR CHILDREN ‘SHOULD’ HAVE First of all, let’s not deny one thing: that children do routinely invest a considerable proportion of their free time into looking…

the essential guide to travel-friendly ios apps

HOW APPLE TECH CAN MAKE YOUR NEXT VACATION BETTER Suggested quotation: “You may be pleasantly surprised by how much of your expected luggage you can practically manage to replace with just an iPhone.” With summer now here, we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve got an exciting vacation – or several – lined up. Perhaps you anticipate sunning yourself on a Californian or Floridian beach, exploring historical landmarks in Greece or Mexico or enjoying a quiet and romantic dinner with a significant other in Paris? However you intend to travel, you could have a lot of planning to do and things to pack – but perhaps surprisingly, your iPhone alone could almost serve as something of an entire digital suitcase. Let’s get one thing out of the way first: for particularly adventurous pursuits that…
