WWDC 2013

WWDC 2013 session videos surface on YouTube

Apple’s registered developers who have downloaded an updated version of the official WWDC app have been able to stream this year’s session videos the day they were made. Developers can alternatively access an archive of WWDC 2013 session videos through both the app and Apple’s official portal for developers.

It looks like Apple has now published those clips on YouTube for everyone to watch, or so it seems. It was unclear at post time whether the iPhone maker actually operates a brand new account seemingly created for the purpose of hosting these NDA clips…

Apple posts video of WWDC keynote to YouTube

Apple finally posted this year’s WWDC keynote to its YouTube channel tonight. The media event, which has been one of the most talked about in recent memory, saw Tim Cook and company show off updated Mac hardware, a new version of OS X, and the biggest update to their mobile platform since its inception with iOS 7.

Most people prefer YouTube over any other video delivery service because of its versatility. So if streaming the keynote through Apple’s website isn’t your thing, and you don’t feel like watching it on your Apple TV, you’ll be happy to hear you can now watch the presentation from virtually any desktop or mobile device via YouTube…

Let’s Talk Jailbreak 15: WWDC hangover

WWDC 2013 is officially finished, and we think it’s safe to say that we’re all a bit hungover from all of the news and activity. In this episode, we, of course, talk about iOS 7, but we also discuss some of the more prominent jailbreak tweaks from the last week. Releases like Auxo for iPad, Overview, and iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons take the floor in this latest back to basics episode.

Let’s Talk Jailbreak 14: WWDC chitchat

It’s WWDC week, and that can only mean one thing: iOS 7! Hence, today is a special episode, as we focus on the new features announced for iOS 7 via Apple’s WWDC keynote. In addition, we discuss the various apps and tweak ideas that Apple borrowed from the jailbreak community. We also talk OS X Mavericks, and Sebastien gives Jeff a timely lesson in surfing.

WWDC 2013 keynote now available for download through iTunes

Shortly following its live-streamed WWDC keynote talk yesterday, Apple has posted a streamable replay to their home page.

I like to keep those keynotes handy for offline viewing, but saving a video stream to a computer is unfortunately a mess which involves too much trickery without guarantees for success.

Luckily, Apple has catered to the archivist in us by making the entire presentation available for download through iTunes…

The 2013 Apple Design Award winners announced

Shortly after Tim Cook wrapped up Apple’s big keynote yesterday, developers and other WWDC attendees made their way over to another popular event: the 2013 Apple Design Award show.

Every year, Apple hands out awards to outstanding iOS and OS X apps based on a number of factors like design, and innovation. And the winners of this year’s prestigious Design Awards are…

Everything you need to know about Apple’s WWDC keynote

Well, that’s all folks. Apple’s highly anticipated WWDC keynote has come, and gone. All announcements have been made, all new software and products have been unveiled, and now the day is coming to a close.

A lot has happened in the last 10 hours, with a new version of Mac OS X, iOS and new Macs all making an appearance during today’s event. And we understand that it might have been difficult to keep track of it all, so we’ve put together this awesome roundup of everything important that happened today…

Apple makes Bing Siri’s default search engine

“The enemy of my enemy, is my friend.” That proverb seems fitting for the new Bing partnership Apple announced today, which sees Microsoft’s lackluster search engine tapped as the default search engine for the snarky digital assistant Siri.

The entire audience went silent during the keynote this morning, as Apple’s SVP of Internet software and services Eddy Cue announced that new in iOS 7, Siri will be able to respond to queries with integrated Bing web search results…

Poll: do you like iOS 7 face-lift?

With the first iOS 7 beta now available to Apple’s registered developers, Twitter is on fire with both praises and complaints from those who have downloaded and installed the software to their devices. At first blush, a lot of people seem to dislike the redesigned home screen icons – and I bet some folks will actually miss skeuomorphism in iOS 7.

Those who do love the new iOS 7 look tend to be equally passionate about the subject. We knew changes in iOS 7 would be polarizing and I’m still bipolar about it.

That being said, today we’re asking you to participate in our little non-scientific poll and vote on the subject of iOS 7 redesign. Please disregard iOS 7 features, this poll is strictly focused on finding out whether or not iOS 7 is aesthetically pleasing to your eye…

24 iOS 7 features Apple didn’t talk about today

Apple showed off a lot of cool new features in iOS 7 this morning. There’s the anti-theft measure, called Activation Lock, and ‘iOS in the Car,’ which lets users mirror their iPhone screens on in-car displays. And don’t forget about the new iTunes Radio.

But there’s also a lot of stuff in iOS 7 that Apple didn’t talk about today, due to time limitations and other restrictions. And looking at this slide behind Tim Cook at the end of the keynote, there’s at least 24 features that weren’t mentioned today…

OS X Mavericks has native LinkedIn sharing, but what about iOS 7?

Apple has shared a bunch of software-focused updates during today’s WWDC keynote, but only briefly touched on a few topics dear to my heart, due to time constraints. Among them: native LinkedIn sharing. As you know, OS X Mountain Lion already incorporates single sign-on for Facebook and Twitter. Truth be told, the company did make a passing mention of LinkedIn integration during the keynote’s Safari segment and it would only seem natural that it will be bringing that capability to iOS 7 in the betas preceding a Fall release…
