What's in store for Apple devices this year and beyond? Here were some of the highlights from Apple's WWDC keynote 2019.
Firstly, a long-awaited new Mac Pro is here. While WWDC is developer focused, Apple sometimes includes hardware announcements, and the new Mac Pro was a big one for Mac power users. The new Mac Pro has a variety of impressive specs and is more modular and customizable than prior versions, designed to please anyone who uses a Mac Pro for video, audio and photo editing or other content creation.
The iPad's OS is getting a big upgrade, and one that will make it possible to use that tablet as more than just a standalone tablet. That includes better multitasting, app switching, split screen view, improved file management and a newly built Safari that's as powerful as the one you use on Mac.
iOS 13 is getting a big face lift as well that includes Dark Mode -- a long desired feature -- a slew of new privacy-focused features, a redesigned Apple Maps and more.
Apple Watch is ready to strike out on its own. Watch OS 6 makes it possible to download apps directly to your watch, without need for an iOS companion app. The upgrade also adds several new standalone watch apps, and a number of new health features such as a menstrual cycle tracker, a way to test hearing, and improved activity tracking and reminders.
