How Apple enfolds the TV screen, the biggest screen in our lives, into an iOS app ecosystem is,” Kosner writes. “And that is just what they will be announcing tomorrow at WWDC… As Ben Parr writes in CNet, this new ecosystem will give Apple even more of a hardware advantage against its competitors. ‘The big vision is to make all of the screens in your home interoperable via AirPlay and iOS.
