Apple Introduces New Line of MacBook Air, MacPro Computers, New iOS, iTunes Radio
At today’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple introduced a new line of MacBook Air computers, the first time the computers have gotten a refresh since 2012, which is an eternity for Apple. The computer boasts a longer battery life (up to 12 hours on the 13-inch, according to Mashable) and a new operating system, the Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. That’s a name! For those still hanging on to their MacPro desktop computers, there’s a new design there too.
There’s also a new mobile operating system, iOS 7, that has a new look and multitasking capabilities. A separate Mashable article has a detailed breakdown, with perhaps the most exciting part (for all of you out there who take tons of pics for Instagram and Facebook) is a “major overhaul” of the camera and photo apps. There’s more share-ability and the ability to manage even more photos. For those using Siri, she’s got a new voice (a man’s!), so don’t be surprised. You can switch it if you want.
And fans of Apple devices for work have the new iWork for iCloud, which helps you create business documents on all of Apple’s devices.
Finally, there’s a new iTunes Radio that hopes to compete with Spotify and some of the other streaming services and will be available on the iPhone and other Apple devices.
