Each year Apple run a flagship industry event known as the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which this time around landed on 3 June.
Known for being a hard-hitting event with the release of developments and new kit – this year didn’t disappoint.
Let’s look at the highlight reel from the event:
New Mac Pro: The famously expensive top end Apple desktop computer – Mac Pro has been redeveloped from the ground up.
This will excite high-end power users such as video and graphics editors and will probably start at around $9000.
Apple 32” Retina Display: This is a new addition to the Apple line-up and really falls into the Mac Pro user category with massive specs and a massive price tag to match.
The 32” 6K XDR screen is likely going to set us Aussies back around $8000 and add another $1000-1500 if you want the matching stand.
New iPad OS: Traditionally iPad, iPhone and iPod all ran IOS.
With the WWDC event Apple have acknowledged that the way we use our devices between Phone and Tablet are very different and are therefore giving us our very own iPad OS.
This will bring into play separate gestures, some data management with USB drives and other user experience changes.
No doubt more details to come.
Mac OS Catalina: This is Apple’s new OSX release and has some cool little features. Apple users expect a regular flow of OSX updates and this one shouldn’t disappoint.
There is an awesome new feature that allows you to use your iPad as a secondary display for the Mac.
This gets very exciting once you incorporate the drawing with Apple pencil.
There is a whole swag of changes here included the killing off the famous iTunes.
This barely scratches the surface on an announcement front with Siri getting a voice makeover, security updates, swift coding improvements and even something for Apple WatchOS and TVOS.
