What did we learn at Apple’s WWDC 2012?

Since, the first iPhone came out millions of people have been anxiously watching WWDC annually, for any clues on Apple’s new products. This year Apple has decided to only showcase its upgraded Mac line, and introduce us to IOS 6.

The differences from the previous and the upgraded Mac lineup are immense. Apple even called one of its most expensive notebook, the best they ever made. The major differences are, that all Apple’s new notebooks contain retina display. This is a game changer. They also upgraded a ton of specs, so you can check them out here.

To add that cherry on top, Apple came out with its new operating system, which contains various upgrades for synchronization and has improved the Mac Store. Now developers will have to upgrade their Apps to support retina display, Mac synchronization, and much much more.

Saving the best for last, the closest information people have about the next generation iPhone, is its operating system. IOS 6, which has introduced many things, which only perfect the previous IOS 5. Most importantly, Apple gave birth to their own maps which is not based on Google (it’s actually based on TomTom a developer company for the App Store). To fulfill Apple’s expectations, they have created other apps to simplify our lives. One of them, named PassBook, saves all your gift cards, flight passes, and of course your Starbucks card.

Apple Confession App Approved by Roman Catholic Church

App Store

As many people out there, I have found this very different. A confession app approved by the pope himself. But not surprising. Since everything is going digital, why not religion? Therefore the real question is will it work? In my opinion it would work for the younger generation and not for the older. The reason is that the older generations would rather keep it the way they grew up and they wouldn’t want to change a thing. But that’s just speculation. Whats your opinion?

Here is a link to a short article about the app.
