WWDC keynote is proof of Apple’s awesome power and poise
Over the last year or so, you could be forgiven for thinking Apple has been dickering about. The company seemed sluggish and slow.And then today! Bam! A jam-packed WWDC keynote with a slew of amazing-looking new hardware and software.
xHands on: iOS 11 brings brilliant new features (especially for iPad)
iOS 11 brings brilliant new features and enough design tweaks to make everything feel fresh. The first developer beta landed this week, and we’re loving what we see – especially when it comes to the great new options for iPad users. See for yourself in our iOS 11 hands-on video.




xHands on: macOS High Sierra packs tons of surprising features
macOS High Sierra doesn’t pack as many updates as iOS 11, but Apple’s latest desktop software delivers plenty of new features worth drooling over. After using the first High Sierra beta for the last few days, I’ve been blown away. Check out what’s new in the macOS High Sierra hands-on video.

xApple finally proves it’s serious about AI
Sitting on a cash pile of billions, Apple’s not a company that’s used to being left behind. But when it comes to artificial intelligence, that’s exactly what has happened in recent years. While companies like Google and Facebook led the way with cutting-edge AI, Apple lagged. It was embarrassing for a company in Apple’s position to miss out on the single best tech revolution taking place at the moment.
