Six Colors: WWDC 2016 »

WWDC happened this week, and Apple announced some major changes to all of the current operating systems. That includes watchOS, iOS, tvOS, and the newly named macOS (bye bye OS X). Dan Moren, of Six Colors, wrote a quick summary of the highlights that were announced, and adds some commentary on how these new features will improve the computing experience overall. It’s a great place to start if you weren’t able to follow along with the live stream during the keynote.
