As you may know Apple held it’s World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) Recently. I made some predictions about what the would see at the keynote announcement. Let’s recap my predictions and some of the other cool stuff announced at this year’s WWDC.
- We will see a new music service
CHECK: The new Music service will launch this month.
- No video streaming service
CHECK: There was NO new video service announced at WWDC.
- No new TV
CHECK: I don’t expect a new TV until Apple can revolutionize content delivery.
- Native apps for watch
CHECK: The things that are coming in watchOS2 are awesome!
- Possibly native apps for TV
MISS: This was a shot in the dark, honestly.
- iOS 9
CHECK: No-brainer, right. This version of iOS is huge for iPad. It brings split screen multitasking to the iPad.
- An improved spotlight search
- An improved Siri
- Something akin to Google Now
CHECK, CHECK, CHECK: Apple announced Intelligence and it is awesome. It’s location aware and it will search inside other apps. This is a huge. I was a big spotlight fan. If Intelegence brings the results as promised I will continue to be.
- OS X 10.11
CHECK: OS X 10.11 is named El Capitan and it brings some great new features.
- Refresh for Mac Mini
- Refresh for Mac Pro
MISS: It has been over 240 days since the Mac Mini release, and over 540 days since the Mac Pro release so it was worth speculating that they would be released.1
