Each year, Apple holds their Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) where the brightest Apple developers and most ambitious 3rd-party developers come together to teach and learn all they know about macOS, iOS, tvOS, watchOS and more! After attending this conference several years in the past, I can tell you that this conference is one of the best conferences I’ve attended in terms of quality of content, quality of presenters and quality of facilities. This show is top notch!
This year, WWDC was held just a few minutes away from their Cupertino HQ at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, June 03 - 07. The week was kicked off with their much anticipated keynote event Monday morning at 10:00a Pacific.
Apple held their Spring media event today at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, CA.
Today’s event was all about services… Apple News, Apple Pay, App Store and Apple TV. To help tell their story, they had many big name directors and actors join them on stage. Here is a run-down of the announcements from this morning.
Apple’s annual Fall product launch event was this morning and it was a big one! Tim Cook and company announced new Apple Watch and iPhone updates with some incredible new features.
Today’s media event was broadcast from the Steve Jobs theater at Apple’s new Apple Park location in Cupertino, California.
Below are notes from the event.

This time of the year is my absolute! As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, my mind turns to the many things that I am thankful and grateful for. In an effort to share some of the things that I am grateful for, I thought I would put together a list. Who knows, maybe my list will help others to enhance their sense of gratitude for the everyday things around them.
There are so, so, so, so many things to be grateful for. Not just this time of the year, but every day of every year. I hope that we (myself included) don’t take these things for granted and cherish them every single day. Life is a gift.
When Apple came out with iOS 11, I was so excited for the “Do Not Disturb While Driving” feature. I was hoping this would help me never be distracted by my phone while on the road again! Unfortunately, I quickly realized that my phone acts as my GPS. I need my Maps App (whether you use Waze, Google Maps, or Apple Maps), to be active on my phone! And that does not happen when “Do Not Disturb While Driving” is enabled.
So, if you prefer not to use this feature while driving, what else can you use it for? We will discuss exactly that in this post.
My father, a practicing pediatrician, constantly advises patients to eat healthier foods. In response, they complain of how expensive eating healthy is. My father always replies, “Think how expensive your doctor and hospital bills will be if you don’t take care of your body. Plus, you will feel a lot better!”
In much the same way, staying current on our software ensures the best, fastest working systems possible. Effective technology allows businesses to increase profitability and everyday users to simplify their lives. As we keep our software up-to-date, we will need to consider (1) why software updates are vitally important, (2) how often we should update our devices, and (3) how to update our systems.
Apple today announced macOS High Sierra, the latest release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system, is now available as a free update.
With macOS High Sierra, Mac users gain powerful new core storage, video and graphics technologies. A new file system ensures more efficient and reliable storage, and support for High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) brings stunning 4K video at lower file sizes. Metal 2 powers virtual reality content creation, faster performance and more. The Core ML developer framework makes it easy to create apps with powerful machine learning that predict, learn and become more intelligent. macOS High Sierra also includes a number of refinements to the apps Mac users enjoy everyday, including Photos and Safari.
At precisely 10 AM in Cupertino, CA, iOS 11 became available for iPhone and iPad. As a wannabe-technical-nerd, I wanted to be one of the first to download it. By the time dinner came around, I installed the update, tested many features, and was ready to tell my wife about all the awesome updates. Here are 5 of my favorites.
Starting today, iPhone and iPad customers around the world will be able to update their devices to iOS 11, a major update to the world’s most advanced mobile operating system and the biggest software release ever for iPad. iOS 11 brings augmented reality to hundreds of millions of iOS devices and new professional capabilities improve images in Photos and Camera. Siri is more natural and useful and a redesigned App Store makes it easier to discover apps and games.
Apple will be holding their Fall 2017 media event today, September 12, 2017 and it's a big deal!! It's a big deal for two reasons... 1) they are rumored to announce their latest iPhone... and it's no ordinary iPhone release, this is their 10th anniversary iPhone! 2) they will be presenting live, for the very first time, from the Steve Jobs Theater at their new Apple Park campus. Either way, this is an announcement not to miss.
We will be updating this post live as the event is in progress, so keep your fingers on Command+R (refresh)!!
