Apple Inc.’s World Wide Developers Conference has kicked off last Monday, and the tech giant has made some groundbreaking announcements on what to look forward to in 2015.
According to Macworld, the company announced four new things coming to Apple fans this year. These are: Apple Music, iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and Watch OS 2.
Apple Music is Apple’s new music streaming service that gives users the capability to stream everything that is available in the iTunes catalogue, Macworld reported.
Apple Music will allow users around the world to listen to Beat 1, a 24-hour radio station that broadcasts popular music around the world and hosted by several big names include Zane Lowe. Macworld said that the service will have stations in New York, Los Angeles and New York in order to ensure 24-hour broadcast.
The service will not be exclusive to iOS users as it will also be available to Android beginning in the autumn.
On the other hand, El Capitan is the latest operating system for Apple’s laptops and computers. While there are some new features, Macworld said that the new OS will be geared more towards improving performance. One of these improvements is the Metal graphics technology, which will ensure better detail and game performance.
Apple also made announcements on the highly anticipated iOS 9 for its mobile devices. The tech giant announced several improvements to mobile device capabilities, including better contextual awareness for Siri, more settings for better battery life for the iPhone 6, as well as a revolutionary “split screen” capability for the iPad tablet.
IOS 9 will also bring trackpad capabilities and quick app switching to Apple’s mobile devices, Macworld said.
The trackpad, which will be built in to the on-screen keyboard, will enable users to exercise finer control over the cursor.
