Last week, we saw what Apple has on order for its next operating systems, iOS 9, OS X El Captain, and WatchOS 2. While I’m not all that interested in the Apple Watch yet, I am excited for changes in iOS and OS X. And there are some good rundowns of the upcoming features from well-known Mac writers.
The first is from iPad evangelist and MacStories editor-in-chief Federico Viticci. He runs down his thoughts on the newly announced multitasking features in iOS9:
“iOS 9 is going to be a watershed moment for iPad users. For many, the iPad is about to graduate from utility to computer. Apple is envisioning a future where users can do more with iPad apps without the inherent complexities of OS X – and they’re largely relying on developers to help build this future.”
For the features in OS X El Captain, we’ll turn to one half of the Mac Power Users duo, David Sparks. He digs into the features of the latest refinements made to OS X:
“Overall, I think we got what we expected today–and what Mac OS needed–a solid update with some new shiny things and a lot of spit and polish.”
Both articles show that WWDC has garnered a lot of excitement from the community. I will say that I am far more excited about the changes to iOS than OS X.
