WWDC 2016 Came and Went
Apple's 2016 World Wide Developer's Conference has come and gone. For those of us who were expecting/hoping for some hardware updates, the reaction was pretty much "meh". Nothing doing.
Gadgets on Vacation
If you had tried to contact Make Your Mac Sing! a couple weeks ago, you may have gotten an automated message that we were away. This to let you know that we are back in action, present and accounted for.
We had a great time at Cape Ann....And had time to play with a new gadget: the Car!
The September Apple Event
Apple's latest event was on September 7th. I watched the keynote on their live streaming feed (on my aged big screen TV connected to my aged Mac Pro).
I would prefer to keep a steady, first week of the month blog schedule. But I needed to wait to write about it. I waited partially due to the work load of the Ashfield FilmFest and the Old Deerfield Arts & Crafts Festival both happening on the same week. But I also wanted to absorb what I could, before presenting my thoughts here.
From June 13 - 17, Apple will be holding its annual WorldWide Developers Conference. This conference gives Apple a chance to connect with software and hardware developers and demonstrate new features in its upcoming products.
What does that mean for us mere mortals? Oodles of new stuff!
While Apple tends to hold its cards close, the expected updates include a new Os X (possibly to be renamed “macOS”), a new iOS for iPhone/iPad, a new watchOS, and a new tvOS (for AppleTV). For Os X, the crystal ball says look for Siri to finally come to the Mac.
The hardware predictions are a little sketchier. ‘Maybe” a new MacBook Pro Retina, a new Mac Pro, and/or a new Mac Mini. A new Thunderbolt Display is an outside chance as well.
