WWDC 2015 Roundup: Everything Announced In One Place

Apple’s big kick off to its Worldwide Developers Conference has drawn to a close, and while our heads are still spinning, there is a lot of news to parse following one of Apple’s most prolific mornings yet. Having previously used WWDC as the venue to announce new versions of iOS and OS X for release in early beta form, this is the first WWDC with the Apple Watch thrown into the mix. As a result, new features, improvements to existing ones and whole new revisions of mobile operating systems were being released at breakneck speed. It’s enough to make your head spin.

Following on from last year’s iOS 8, the new iOS 9 software brings with it improved Siri support, Proactive Assistant, actual split-screen multitasking on iPad Air 2 and a new side panel on older versions of the iPad that allows users to interact with two apps simultaneously. Apple also needs iOS 9 to pave the way for watchOS 2, which will take the Apple Watch to new heights. Siri also received a new lick of paint, though that may be doing it a disservice.
