“Apple Inc. sought to recapture its authority as a tastemaker, unveiling the biggest redesign in iPhone software since the smartphone was introduced in 2007 and stressing that the company hasn’t lost its cool,” Jessica E. Lessin and Greg Bensinger report for The Wall Street Journal.
“The more minimalist mobile software, along with new Mac hardware and a streaming radio service, energized the thousands of developer attendees who attended the kickoff keynote address for Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.,” Lessin and Bensinger report. “But the updates left some consumers and developers wanting more dramatic changes, such as payment capabilities or bigger improvements to Apple’s online services.”
Lessin and Bensinger report, “Monday’s event was a potpourri of announcements across Apple’s product lines. They included new laptops, a version of iOS to run in cars, a new Mac operating system and a music service known as iTunes Radio… The real referendum on the announcements will come this fall, when the software will be released to consumers. Apple is also expected to release its latest iPhone in the fall, which is expected have similar hardware to the iPhone 5, people familiar with the matter say… In the fall, Apple will also release a new Mac operating system [OS X 10.9 Mavericks], as its mobile and desktop operating systems continue to converge.”
