REMEMBER, IT’S A CONFERENCE FOR CODERS. SO WE DECOMPILED TODAY’S NEWS.
At its annual World Wide Developer’s Conference today, Apple introduced significant upgrades to its desktop and mobile operating systems, moved into the connected health and smart home spaces, and introduced a new programming language that will speed up the your app experience.
The keynote is aimed primarily at programmers, and even the most consumer-friendly announcements today could leave many feeling downright bored. You can receive a phone call on your iPhone and answer it on your Mac, which becomes a speaker phone. There’s a cloud-based storage system similar to Dropbox or Box, and it will archive all of your photos. And several other small but useful changes that will come to your iPhone and desktop later this summer.
But for programmers today offered a bonanza. A new programming language, Swift, will let developers make apps faster and more powerful. Changes to the App Store, including a list of trending apps and video previews, fix that nagging discoverability problem. In all, the software developer kit (SDK) for iOS 8 offers more than 4,000 new APIs to play with, including HealthKit and HomeKit — which will speed the development of connected health and smart home apps.
Here’s a scannable look at what Apple announced.
