What you missed at Apple’s WWDC14

On June 2, developers around that globe began rejoicing. It had finally arrived, the big reveal of Apple’s latest operating systems for Mobile and Desktop entourage, iOS8 and OSX Yosemite.

The announcement of these new releases are generating some incredible excitement around the global development community as they stand as some of the most influential software releases Apple has made to its operating system in recent years.

Here we highlight some of the amazing features you may not yet know about, but clearly we thing will dramatically change the way you work with your devices.

Hand Off

Probably one of the most astounding user features announced in Yosemite and iOS8 is Handoff. hero

Handoff lets you take any file your working on from you Mac, or iOS device and literally hand it off to another. Say your typing a document on your iPad travelling home from work. As soon as you arrive home, you can ‘Handoff’ that document to you’re Mac at home and immediately pickup right where you left off. Beyond documents and files, Handoff also lets you take calls right through your Mac, just incase you’re away from your phone.

iCloud Drive

The advantage to iCloud Drive is that it comes fully integrated into iOS8 and OSX Yosemite ready to get to work as soon as you power up. Working on files and saving them to the cloud is now made simple and effortless sealing the deal for Apples closed computing eco-system.

Health Kit

One of the more developer orientated features released was seen in the announcement of HealthKit. With the proliferation of wearable tech, Apple have decided to open up their SDK to plugin to 3rd party health applications and have their data interact with iOS8. Beyond the obvious benefits of things such as pedometers, heart rate and blood pressure monitoring, Apple have also forged strategic partnerships with established practices such as the MAYO Clinic in Minnesota to cement their position as a health tech leader.

Swift Code

swift-screenshotA startling announcement was that of Apple’s very own proprietary coding language they’re calling Swift. Swift, based on Objective-C, is Apple’s new innovative programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch.

The Syntax is shorter while offering greater expression than it’s contemporaries, and allows apps to run faster, but beyond that Swift boasts an almost 4x Speed for complex object sorting.

Possibly one of the most impressive features, is that while it’s an entirely new and innovative language, it is still able to run seamlessly alongside Objective-C and fits right in alongside existing code without any workflow being compromised.

With Apples WWDC14 all wrapped up we once again see the tech giant showing that they are ahead of the curve and ready to take on their competitors both at home and abroad.
