Today is a day filled with big news from Apple and I am excited to share it all with you. As you may have heard the WWDC16 is occurring from the 13th all the way through the 17th. Apple is bringing a lot of changes, and if you missed it I just want to give you a brief break down of what is going to be occurring in the up coming months!
Apple announced iOS 10, which will be coming this fall to the iPhone, iPad and iPod. A lot of different changes which I will pick a part for you shortly. Apple also announced macOS Sierra. If you read some of my previous posts you would know that the rumors were true and Apple did indeed dropped the famous OS X naming system and changed it to macOS.
iOS 10 “Big. Bold. Beautiful”
After looking through some of the website, I noticed that a lot of the major features are coming directly to iMessage, if you think about it, it makes sense because I believe that is what users spend the most of their time on.
For instance here is an example of Write it Yourself, where it allows the user to write something and send it all at the control of your finger.
There is a lot more! If you want to go check them out, click on any one of the pictures above and it will directly take you to the website, that will you will be able to interact with them and see what it’s all about.
iOS 10 is also bringing changes to Siri, which allow her to open up applications. I think this would be very useful, especially for all of you who use Siri on a daily basis, making multitasking to a whole new level.
iOS devices will now even be able to pick up the iPhone and wake it up. Instead of always have to click a button to see what notification you got, simply picking it up will show you everything you need.
There are plenty more features, probably even more than what will be displayed on the website and I cannot wait to try them all out this Fall.
The first and foremost is how they changed the name from OS X to macOS, which I think seems to make sense strictly because now it just goes along well with the product. There are a few changes coming to the macOS, one of the big ones being Siri.
- Siri can do something for you while you are working on something else, taking multitasking to a whole new level.
- Siri can locate files for you simply by just asking.
- You can even ask it so many more things! Check it out below!
I really cannot wait to try this out! The only problem is for those of you who have:
- MacBook from late 2009 and later
- MacBook Air from 2010 and later
- MacBook Pro from 2010 and later
- Mac Mini from 2010 and later
- Mac Pro from 2010 and later
- iMac from late 2009 and later
Apple is no longer supporting these systems. If you do not fall in the group of these products then it will definitely be something to try out when it releases.
I am excited about everything that Apple has planned and can’t wait to try it out. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or leave a comment below!
