“As expected, Apple announced new versions of OS X (El Capitan), iOS (v9), watchOS (v2), and Swift (v2). Emotional words: beautiful, stunning, and love, were peppered throughout,” Quinton Wall reports for TechCrunch. “In short, everything you would expect from an Apple keynote.”
“But there was also an undertone of language and phrases that will be important to enterprise developers,” Wall reports. “Apple’s announcements point towards an increasing reliance on data and machine-learning to deliver contextual apps that offer productivity gains through proactivity.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook “referred to Swift as the ‘the next big programming language,’ developers will be building apps in ‘the next 20 years.’ That’s a big statement.
