Tim Cook and company unleashed a veritable avalanche of updates at the Worldwide Developers Conference’s opening keynote this morning. The new features and updates came so fast, it was hard to keep up.
Of course, Apple’s got several operating systems to update these days, as well as major services like Maps, Music and iCloud.
Below you’ll find a digest of the stuff we thought was coolest, as well as deeper dives into the major updates and new features. I think we covered most of the big stuff.
It was a fun show and I’d recommend you watch it online
if you haven’t done so. I was impressed with the number of new presenters Apple trotted out, and was glad to see lots of women and people of color. The production, as usual, was top-notch, and Craig Federighi got in some good jokes. I’ll be watching it again just to see a bunch of stuff I missed the first time around.
Disappointingly, there was no new hardware. Stoked by rumors, lots of Apple fans were hoping for new MacBook Pros. If you want a chuckle, check out Twitter reactions
from Apple fans who sold their old MacBooks in anticipation!
