Top highlights from Apple’s
Apple is going through a big deal of improvements
from its Iphone, OS, to its smart home systems. Get ready to be benefitted from
these changes very soon this year, if you are a big fan of Apple. These changes
were unveiled at Apple’s WWDC 2015, which is the World Wide Developers
Conference held from 8-12 June in San Francisco.
The new OS X
Minor changes were introduced in OS X 10.11 “El
Capitan”, but they are also pretty useful. You can now pin sites from Safari,
so they will load instantly on the landing page. Spilting your screen in
between apps and software will be easier too, as multiple desktop layouts will
be stored in a navigation bar on top.
IOS 9 is here too
It’s quite cool what a few changes to an app can
do to make it more productive and worth using. IOS 9 is banking on this
concept, by making small improvements to its Notes App to include the
functionality to draw, its HealthKit to be able to track UV exposure and
menstrual cycles, and a “low power mode” for a few hours more battery for your
Iphone. Be more productive with your Ipad Air 2, as you can now open two apps
side by side and use them simultaneously.
Know how to take the public bus using Apple Maps
Before this new version, you could not get public
transit directions like the bus or subway information using Apple Maps. In
short, it is only for pedestrians or people who drive. Now, it has become much
more useful especially to navigate big cities using public transport.
This new music streaming service was launched at
Apple WWDC 2015, and it can be a real threat to
Spotify. It brings music downloads, streaming radio and music service into one
single app. The service will cost US$9.99 a month, or $14.99 for a family plan
of up to six individuals, with a three-month free trial. There is also a new
feature called Connect that lets artists, well, connect more intimately with
their fans by sharing photos, videos and messages.
