When Apple made their software announcements at WWDC today, they said that developers would be given early access to the new software. Well, they've made good on that promise by updating the Apple Dev Centers for iOS and Mac OS. This means that registered (paid!) developers can now get access to iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion, iTunes 10.5, and a new Apple TV update.
Apple made a ton of announcements at today's WWDC keynote, including the features we can look forward to from iCloud, Mac OS X Lion, and iOS 5. Of course, they could only share a few of the new features in the actual keynote due to time limitations. But fortunately, all of the features are now listed on the Apple website.
Apple seems to have busy secretly installing fancy new features onto our iOS devices. Our latest discovery is the ability to download music you're purchased from the iTunes store that you haven't synced to your iOS device.
Still got a MobileMe account? Effective today, if you had an active MobileMe account your service has been automatically extended through June 30, 2012 at no additional charge. After this, MobileMe will cease to exist.
You'll have the ability to move over your MobileMe mail, contacts, calendars and bookmarks to iCloud once it becomes available this fall. And if you purchased the MobileMe box and haven't used the activation code inside, you can get a refund for it by submitting a refund request.
Apparently Apple let a sly one come past us. The Automatic Download sections in the general preferences have been updated to include the new iCloud syncing features. You can now turn off and on music, apps, books and decide whether or not you want to automatically update over-the-air or Wi-Fi.
It was a big day in Apple as the company announced the features of three new products: OS X 10.7 Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud. Hopefully you got to join us for our live blog this morning, but if not here's every photo we took inside the keynote with Steve and the gang.
Join us on Monday, June 6 at 10AM PST as we live blog the WWDC 2011 keynote event from Moscone West in downtown San Francisco. Steve and company will be showing us OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud and we'll have all the details for you right here! Stay tuned, bookmark this page, and do whatever you have to do to join us Monday morning.
Steve Jobs is such a tease. At the end of every major Apple event, he waits until the very end to announce just "one more thing," and it's always a very special thing. With WWDC right around the corner (ahem, Monday!), we thought we'd commemorate with a gallery the top ten best and most awesome times Steve's ever uttered our favorite catch phrase.
