This week Apple held their March 2019 keynote in California at the Steve Jobs Theatre. They held a services based conference this time and announced many new products that are upcoming this year. I have kept this blog post quite concise by publishing my notes that I took whilst watch the keynote so I hope they're quite easy to skim through and you find them useful.
So I have had my Apple Watch Series 4 for three weeks now and wanted to review it for my blog. I have posted a lot about Apple recently from the Special Event to iOS 12 and product reviews of the iPhone XS Max and now the Apple Watch Series 4. I promise that'll be it for a while as I'm all Apple'd out!
Unfortunately my MacBook Pro from Early 2011 is no longer upgradeable with Apple's new macOS releases. I am currently running macOS High Sierra but I have had the chance to use macOS Mojave in work on the iMac so can still post a quick review on it! I'll be covering a few of the features I use/like most in this post.
The iPhone XS and XS Max came out last Friday (21st September) and I upgraded my handset in Cardiff. I am on the iPhone Upgrade Program so pay a monthly fee to Barclays Partner Finance and basically lease the iPhone until a new one is released. I do this because I don't have to worry about selling the device after a year or two of use (which I used to do) and it is covered by AppleCare+ the entire time.
The much anticipated iOS 12 update was released this Monday and I wanted to write this blog post as a quick review and recap of what was in the update. I have only been using the software since Monday so I haven't used everything to it's full potential but I have a pretty good idea of how things work and what updates have been integrated.
The Worldwide Developers Conference 2018 keynote took place on Monday and Apple covered a lot! I've spoken about the key features here and focused on the ones that interested me most. David Attenborough narrated a video showing 'the developer' (depicted as a species) attending WWDC and it was brilliant. I was laughing throughout the video and it was really well produced. Apple usually features an opening clip before conferences nowadays and this has to be one of my favourites.
I absolutely love music and have done so for as long as I can remember. This week I'm talking about the latest updates in the music world, how I listen to music myself and some highlights of recent months! I'd love to hear about what music you like to listen to and how. Let me know in the comments section of this blog post.
Apple Release iOS 11 Today. This is the biggest iOS update to date and will improve the way we use our devices. This update to iOS 11 is available on Tuesday 19th September 2018. To download the latest software follow the prompts on your iOS device or navigate to Settings > General > Software Update. In this blog post I will be summarising some of the keyupdades before getting to use the software myself and review it later this month.
