A quick note on 2013 WWDC
Apple’s yearly broo-ha-ha began yesterday, June 10. Geared to the many fine folks that create the gazillion apps available for both the Mac and iPad/iPhone/iPod, many in tech media have been waiting for this conference to get an idea where Apple is headed. More, to see if Apple can maintain its spot on the top of the tech mountain. One presenter summed it up nicely by saying, “[Apple] can no longer innovate my arse.” Sadly, the conference’s success will be rated by the stock market far more than the advances the company introduced in its keynote.
For me, what I have been waiting for is the update to the iPhone’s operating system, iOS7. A few months ago, I upgraded to the iPhone 5 from the iPhone 4 (and the iPhone 3G before that) and was satisfied with the newness of the larger screen and Siri. But, the satisfaction didn’t last long. It still looked and acted like my old iPhone and I simply wanted more. Thankfully, iOS7 is on the way, and my desire for something new is on the way. I’m not happy about waiting until the fall for the release of the public version. I want it now!
Yes, iOS7 looks shiny and new, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. The folks at apple call it “stunning,” “beautiful” and “all new but familiar to use.” I think it will appease my upgrade needs – for awhile.
Check it out and see what you think. Will you be upgrading?
