What Did Developers Think Of This Year's WWDC?

For Apple enthusiasts, there’s no bigger event than the Worldwide Developers conference. It’s the one week of the year the famously secretive company opens itself up to third party developers to ask questions, test new and unreleased features in the company’s products and read the tea leaves on the future directions of the iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch. I spoke to a few developers to gauge their reaction to the announcements of WWDC, and the mood was generally positive.

Apple's New Meditation App Is Competing With Deepak Chopra

5 Things Apple Tried To Destroy At WWDC 2016

Apple, the perpetual copycat, introduced a ton of new ideas today that weren’t really new at all. Many companies have made the products and features Apple showed off — and now Apple aims to destroy them with its own version.

WWDC This Year Was All About Software

Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) is, as its name suggests, usually centres around developers and software. Going by that, one shouldn’t expect crisp new iMacs or iPhones — and 2016 was no different. In fact, the last time a significant hardware refresh was unveiled at the WWDC event was 2010 when Steve Jobs touted Retina display and Facetime running a brand new A4 SoC on the iPhone 4.
