  • 19.18 - by the way guys, sorry for any confusion here in the messages. We're syncing together from London and from Cupertino so there's been a bit of confusion...
    6/10/2013 6:18:43 PM
  • Cook announces iOS 7
    6/10/2013 6:18:53 PM

    6/10/2013 6:19:14 PM

    6/10/2013 6:19:59 PM

  • Effects look 3D, as though images move in different planes.
    6/10/2013 6:22:17 PM
  • iPhone creates 'new experience of depth' - layers and 'the parallax'. Very excellent.

    by James Vincenton Jun 10, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    6/10/2013 6:38:22 PM

    6/10/2013 6:39:27 PM
  • 19.39 - AirDrop now getting the spotlight turned on it. Easy ways to share content with multiple people. Just tap a name, a face, to send content. Can be supported by any app with the 'share stream'. 
    6/10/2013 6:40:48 PM
  • Now multi-tasking is the topic and all apps will be able to multi-task, previously resisted because of battery power.
    6/10/2013 6:42:10 PM

    6/10/2013 6:42:10 PM
  • Swiping is the way to manipulate the camera, too, with a new Photos app.
    6/10/2013 6:42:10 PM
  • Or you can sort them by year
    6/10/2013 6:42:10 PM
  • Craig is rushing through new features like multitasking and AirDrop to transfer items you share with friends. And a clear rebuke to Samsung with its NFC transfers "no need to bump your phone".

    6/10/2013 7:01:27 PM
  • 20.28 Message boards are buzzing with reaction, and not just to the iOS 7 flat design.
    First, they've finally run out of cats. The latest OS for desktop and laptops is not named after an obscure kind of animal, but is instead called OS X Mavericks, after the big-wave surfing hang-out - the new OS versions will be named after places in California. 
    There's also iTunes Radio - a serious rival to Spotify but with a big social element.
    The Mac Pro looks like nothing else you'll have seen in computing - the most high-tech bin in the world, with impressive stats on computing power.
    The new AirBook has a battery that lasts all day.
    iCloud now has iWork - think a glossy-looking version of Google Docs.
    FaceTime now lets you make audio-only calls as well as video calls.
    Car manufacturers are working to make iOS work with your car (about time too!).
    And Activation Lock should help limit thefts of iPhones and iPads - you can only unlock via iCloud.
