Apple announces WWDC 2017 returning to San Jose, kicking off June 5

Apple announced today that its Worldwide Developers Conference will be kicking off with a keynote on June 5. The five-day conference will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, the site of the original WWDC and located just minutes from Apple’s new iSpaceship headquarters in Cupertino.

This will be the first time WWDC will be in San Jose since 2002: WWDCs from 2013 onward were held in San Francisco. Developers will have the opportunity to apply for tickets this spring, the Cupertino company has confirmed. The conference will focus on all platforms—macOS, tvOS, watchOS and iOS—and will be live-streamed through the Apple Developer website and on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

iOS 10 tidbit: 3D Touch the flashlight toggle to choose an intensity

Apple originally introduced Control Center in iOS 7, which was their way of answering both the competition on multiple Android platforms and the jailbreak community in one fell swoop.

With iOS 10, which Apple announced at the WWDC 2016 Keynote this week, Apple has shown off some obvious changes to Control Center, including a modular paged navigation design and different color tones and styles.

Of course, aesthetic wasn’t the only change. Apple also made the flashlight toggle button from Control Center a whole lot more useful as well.

You can now watch Apple’s WWDC 2016 keynote on YouTube

It’s taken a while, but Apple has finally uploaded this year’s WWDC keynote to YouTube. The replay has been available as an embedded video on Apple’s website since yesterday, but obviously YouTube is a lot more device-friendly.

So for the folks who missed the keynote, or would just like to watch it again, things have just gotten much easier. You can now view it in its entirety in YouTube’s desktop or mobile web app, or via the native mobile YouTube app.

Poll: will you upgrade to iOS 10 or keep your jailbreak?

Apple announced iOS 10 yesterday at the company’s WWDC 2016 Keynote and awed the audience with some pretty neat new features.

Of course, the battle continues for those who want more control over their devices, and because of that, we want to know whether you’re going to be updating to iOS 10 this Fall, or if you’ll be keeping your iOS device(s) jailbroken on iOS 9 or earlier.
