As WWDC ends, the mood in the trenches is neighborly

As WWDC ends, the mood in the trenches is neighborly

Apple’s WWDC is over for another year, and as the dust settles on the iOS 9, Apple Music, and OS X El Capitan launch, it’s a chance to reflect on five days of sessions. It’s hard to gauge the tone of a week-long developer event from a fast-paced keynote - even with an Apple Music section which went on too long, and which several developers I spoke to suspected was padded to fill up space originally intended for an Apple TV SDK announcement. If there can be such a thing as an overarching theme, though, it felt like it might be harmonious co-existence.

WWDC 2015 keynote wrap-up: Apple Music, iOS 9, Apple Watch, OS X El Capitan

WWDC 2015 keynote wrap-up: Apple Music, iOS 9, Apple Watch, OS X El Capitan

Apple has wrapped up its WWDC 2015 Keynote, and there's a lot of information to get caught up on if you missed it. Apple covered the gamut, touching on all things consumer and developer with its OS X and iOS platforms, as well as the Apple Watch, its new Apple Music service, and more. Announced during the keynote was "El Capitan", the next version of OS X, as well as a bunch of details on what to expect from iOS 9. The Apple Watch will be getting native apps, as well, and in the future users across many platforms -- not just iOS -- will be able to enjoy the new Apple Music service -- yes, that even includes Android users.

Drake appears at WWDC to push Apple Music Connect

Apple Music will give artists a place to not only share their music but their inspiration and more, with Connect pages that can be followed by listeners. Exactly what each page will include will be left up to the artists themselves, with support for not only clips of streaming audio but video, status updates, photos, and more. Meanwhile, Apple brought music star Drake - wearing a classic Apple jacket with the rainbow logo, indeed - up on-stage to talk about what Connect could do.

WWDC 2015’s pre-event Black Banners dropped early: no secrets here

WWDC 2015’s pre-event Black Banners dropped early: no secrets here

While past years' Apple developer conferences have had black covers over banners before the week's main event, no such covers are necessary this time around. This year isn't about secrets. It's not about big reveals. This year Apple is up front about what it's bringing to the table - assistance and support for developers. Perfectly understandable since WWDC 2015 is a developer conference - a conference which is supposed to be aimed at giving developers a leg up in the software development environment for Apple products.

Five things we’re expecting from WWDC 2015

Just days before Apple's WWDC 2015 - their yearly developer conference - we're having another close-as-possible look at what'll be shown by the company. Here we're highlighting the most important bits, running down the software that'll be shown off in San Francisco. While there's a possibility that Apple COULD reveal some new hardware, we'd suggest you didn't bet on it. This year's developer conference will be all about developers, as it was always meant to be. This list includes iOS 9, OS X 10.11, HomeKit, Beats Streaming Music, and the Apple Watch Native SDK.

AltConf not allowed to stream Apple’s WWDC

AltConf not allowed to stream Apple’s WWDC

You may not have heard of it before, but AltConf is an independently run developer conference held in San Francisco during the same week as Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), and Apple has just rained on their parade, so to speak. During previous years, AltConf has live streamed Apple's WWDC keynote for its own attendees, but even though the independent event caters to OS X and iOS developers, Apple has threatened legal action if organizers try to stream again this year.

Apple tipped in last minute music talks ahead of WWDC 2015

Apple’s WWDC 2015 is only days away, and word has it the company is working fast to get deals in place with record labels. This, it is said, is due to the expected new music service Apple will be announcing during the event, which is said to be subscription-based and will be priced at (unofficially speaking) about $10 per month. Sources have cropped up to speak about this, pointing toward stubborn record labels and an effort to get higher-than-typical pieces of the revenues.

Apple TV no-show at WWDC – Android TV free to take the reigns

Apple TV no-show at WWDC – Android TV free to take the reigns

Apple is about to deliver updates galore during WWDC 2015, their annual developer's conference. One product they won't be bringing heat to is the Apple TV. This wouldn't have been a surprise if there hadn't been such an abundance of rumors about Apple TV coming with a new wave of developer tools, a new Apple TV 2, etc., over the past several months - but there it is. Either something changed behind the scenes, or there never was a plan to bring Apple TV to the limelight at WWDC 2015 in the first place.

WWDC is coming: set your Apple TVs and Apple Watches

Apple’s $10 Spotify rival tipped for WWDC 2015

Apple's long-rumored streaming music service will be revealed to rival Spotify at WWDC 2015 next week, insiders claim, priced at $10 per month. The service is believed to initially run alongside, rather than replace, Beats Music, and comprise part - though not all - of the company's digital music catalog along with a selection of radio stations curated by human DJs. Interestingly, Apple is even said to be considering promoting the streaming platform to people who initially wanted to purchase music instead.

Apple to announce Apple Pay rewards program at WWDC

Apple to announce Apple Pay rewards program at WWDC

As the battle over mobile payments between Apple Pay and Google's Android Pay is predicted to heat up in the near future, a new report from the New York Times says that Apple will use next month's WWDC event to announce a new rewards program for its payment system. The program is described as a way to offer "perks" to users who regularly pay for purchases using Apple Pay. This would not only encourage users to continue using Apple Pay, but also lure those who haven't used it yet but might consider Android Pay.
