From June 10-14, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference paved the way for a year of exciting new Apple stuff in San Francisco, CA. What used to be a tech geek’s dream has grown into a soiree that’s exciting for everyone. We’re pretty plugged in these days. kubxlab was especially jacked about it, because we saw the new iOS 7, a new brain inside the body our ampjackets cradle. You can have Siri in a swarthy male voice now, too. In our last WWDC post, A Taste of the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, we talked about all the other gadgets we could expect from the conference, so let’s get right into it.
The iPhone 5 is a far cry from the so-called “golden ratio,” but it’s carving a niche for itself as an excellent ratio. Recall this commercial:
The new iOS 7 is the heart and soul of the iPhone 5, and it’s all at a thumb’s reach. It’s more streamlined and allows for a little more improvisation. Now you can access a catchall control center by swiping upwards from the bottom of the screen. The aforementioned male Siri and everyone’s favorite gal, original Siri, have been made over to sound more like buddies and less like terrifying, omniscient robots. We have a better calendar, better photo systems where you can organize them into neat folders, and AirDrop which lets you share content with other Apple devices.
What else happened? Apple unveiled its streaming music service, iTunes Radio, which personalizes your jams and lets you organize them. It communicates with iTunes and works with Mac and Windows computers. Also, they rolled out a crucial upgrade to iWork, which lets you tap iCloud and run programs (i.e. Pages for word processing and Numbers for spreadsheets) from your Web browser
We hope you’re as excited for the iOS 7 and other Apple gadgets as we are. Big things are here, so buckle up and get those thumbs ready!
