Comment: iCloud has finally delivered on Steve Jobs’ original promise from 2011

Back when Steve Jobs unveiled iCloud in 2011, we were pitched a vision of data being available everywhere. Jobs pitched demoting the Mac and moving the digital hub into the cloud. All of our devices had connectivity built-in, so data should be available everywhere. The problem was it didn’t cover all of our photos. We didn’t get that until iCloud Photos came in iOS 8. It didn’t cover iMessage, as that didn’t come until a few years ago. It didn’t cover all of our files, but only those in the iCloud folder stored inside of app folders. We didn’t get seamless syncing of files until Apple added Desktop and Document folder syncing.

One of my favorite sessions from Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference is the “What’s new with device management session”. It’s usually towards the end of the week, but it’s one that IT managers should always pay attention to. We aren’t getting the earth-shattering changes we did in years past, but that’s simply because a lot of the low hanging fruit has been picked. There are some notable changes coming in the fall updates, though. So here’s what’s new with device management in iOS 13, iPadOS 13, tvOS 13, and macOS Catalina. more…

WWDC: What is Business Chat Suggest?

The tram stop outside of WWDC 2019 flew Apple’s colours

Apple launched a range of enhancements designed for business users at WWDC, including Business Chat Suggest. What is Business Chat Suggest, what does it do, and how is it used?

What is Business Chat Suggest?

Apple introduced Business Chat in the U.S. in early 2018, expanding it internationally a few months later.

The message-based customer service is now in use worldwide. Business Chat Suggest makes the service even easier to use.

Originally, when you search for a business that supports Business Chat, you get given an option to connect to them using the service.

Business Chat Suggest takes this a step further because when you tap the number to call a supported business iOS recognizes the number relates to a Business Chat supporting enterprise and offers to start a Business Chat instead of making the call.

This lets customers

Hot Wheels is likely a toy that you either played with as a kid or still have many of now. I still have quite the collection hidden somewhere in the attic, but enough about me.

Now, with Hot Wheels id, the iconic toy is entering the 21st century. Hot Wheels id is a new system that brings together both physical and digital play and is available exclusively from Apple.

Apple is separating iTunes into new Apple Music, TV and Podcasts apps, but it isn’t really killing the veteran media management software it launched in April 2003.

Here’s what you need to know:

Why is Apple ending iTunes?

Apple’s software chief joked as he announced the end of iTunes

“How about a calendar in iTunes?,” joked Apple engineering lead Craig Federighi when he announced the news at WWDC.

“I mean, you can have all of your appointments and your best tracks all in one app!” The media management software had grown to a point at which it simply did too much.

The music industry owes a lot to iTunes

iTunes didn’t stop online piracy overnight, but it did“open up the promise of a celestial jukebox for anyone who believed that it’s better to pay for stuff.”

That turned out to be plenty of people who still
