Apple just finished its WWDC keynote and holy crap, there is a ton of new stuff coming to iOS 7 and OS X. A radical looking Mac Pro was also showed off alongside some MacBook Airs with all-day battery life.
To help save you some time, here’s a list of everything new Apple introduced today at WWDC 2013 that we’ll be updating throughout the day as new info become available.
Apple has really started to rally around its identity as an American company. During Tim Cook’s recent appearance in Washington he repeatedly stressed the point that Apple is proud to be an American company. Phil Schiller also made sure to note that the new Mac Pro is designed and assembled in America.
At the end of WWDC Apple revealed a new ad, ‘Designed by Apple in California’ which talks about the passion Apple puts into its products. Cook said the ad will start appearing on TV later today.
We’re still waiting for Apple’s Developer Portal to come online so we can install the beta of iOS 7, but one of our readers noticed a neat little feature that wasn’t discussed during the keynote – the iOS 7 Clock app icon now updates to show you the real time.
Not sure if third-party apps will get the same abilities, but things are looking really promising in iOS 7. Check out out round-up post for all the details on everything Apple announced today.
It’s only been moments since Apple ended its WWDC keynote, and the entire show is already available for streaming online. You can visit Apple’s website to stream the full 120-minute ordeal in all of its glory. The video file should also be hitting Apple’s podcast feed any moment now.
Apple’s live-streamed the event, but if you weren’t able to watch as it was happening, you can get caught up now. Streaming from Apple doesn’t necessarily work well in all browsers, so your best bet is Safari.
After unveiling the radically redesigned iOS 7 and some of its marquee features, Apple announced availability info at WWDC. Developers will be able to get their hands on the first beta of iOS 7 later today, and the public release will happen later this year.
Apple typically issues several betas to developers in the months leading up to a new iPhone announcement. Expect that to happen again this year.
iOS 7 will run on the iPhone 4 and up, iPad 2 and up, and the 5th gen iPod touch.
The rumors were right. Apple has unveiled iTunes Radio (previously dubbed ‘iRadio” by the rumor mill) in the iOS 7 Music app. The service works a lot like Pandora. You can create stations based on artists you like and share what you’re listening to over social networks.
There are featured stations as well as the collection you create based on your own tastes. iTunes Radio is built into iOS 7, the Apple TV, and an upcoming version of iTunes.
The service is free with ads, and if you have an iTunes Match subscription, there are no ads.
