Apple WWDC 2017 Highlights: Whats new?

Derrick Tucker | 12 June, 2017, 18:59

With an average of 204MHz of spectrum and more than 160MHz of 2.5GHz spectrum in the top 100 US markets, Sprint has more spectrum than any other carrier across the nation, allowing Sprint to keep adding the capacity and speed needed to serve customers' increasing demand for unlimited data.

USA carrier Sprint has officially started taking preorders for Apple's new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablets, with shipping set for next week.

Arguably the most interesting of these developments is the ability to drag and drop files from one location to another. Apple uses the event to showcase its new software and technologies for software developers.

This lets you change the way you set up your workflow. One of the most impressive unveilings that took place at this year's WWDC was the new iPad Pro. Zeroing in on that upgraded display, I happen to have a 4K iMac on my desk in NY, so to me the bump in brightness is subtle at best, at least if I'm relying on my memory and unable to do a side-by-side comparison today in California. But large VFX and animation houses have pretty much standardised on Linux outside of the art department - with medium-sized companies and smaller ones creating high-end work in the likes of Maya or Nuke favouring Linux or Windows (with the same caveat).

One of the things that has given iPad Pro devices some credibility as work machines in the last two years is their multitasking and productivity features. According to The Verge, the new MacBook will likely be still slower than the MacBook Pro so for those who value speed, the latter is the better choice. Much as I'd like Apple to introduce an actually modern laptop at that £950 price, I suppose this is better than nothing. This is exactly the type of functionality that might make stylus sceptics reconsider the Pencil.

Taylor Swift returns to streaming as rival Katy Perry releases album
Fans have taken to Twitter to praise the new album, which hit number one on iTunes just 10 minutes after its release. This meant that other streaming platforms such as Spotify were missing out, but that is no longer the case.

At Apple's conference this week, Apple announced sweeping changes to macOS and the coming of iOS 11.

Although Apple updated the MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks with seventh-generation Intel processors - the architecture dubbed "Kaby Lake" by the California-based silicon designer and manufacturer - talk during the keynote was limited to the iMac, Apple's all-in-one desktop.

While I've never really appreciated a camera on an iPad, there are many people who seem to use it. And finally, the screen features a 120hz refresh rate, thanks to the new ProMotion technology, meaning navigating around iOS 11 should be smoother than ever. Inside, it's powered by an A10X Fusion chip and includes the same cameras as the iPhone 7, which means a 12-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization, along with a 7-megapixel front shooter. It still has double the CPU performance of the iPad Air 2 and it comes with Apple's biggest screen yet. A new Do Not Disturb While Driving option can tell when your iPhone is in a vehicle and the auto is moving, and not distract you with incoming notifications.

For power-users, the MacBook Pro range has also had a facelift and a slight specs bump. Here are the refreshed price list of the same, if you buy a Apple device from a Apple authorises retail store.
