This month we’re looking forward to WWDC. A highlight of Apple’s yearly calendar, the annual get-together for the company’s software partners always sees it unveil a range of new products. This time around we’re expecting new versions of its operating systems and updates to Siri and Apple Music. Read our preview on page 4.
We’ve also had a chance to spend some time with Apple’s latest iOS hardware – the 9.7in iPad Pro and the iPhone SE. On pages 8 and 26 we evaluate their build quality and new features, put the devices through our rigorous speed benchmarks and battery-life tests, and look at their value for money.
New to iOS is the Night Shift feature, which lets you adjust the colour temperature of the display, shifting away from blue spectrums of light, in the putative interest of improving sleep. The jury is, however, out as to its effectiveness. We look at what the experts say on page 43.
Siri made the iPhone more responsive with artificial intelligence, but now its founders want to put AI in every device you own. On page 65, we look at Viv, a voice assistant that could change the way we interact with not just our phones but our home appliances, cars, and more.
Plus, we’ve 29 pages of tips and tutorials, so you can get the most out of your Apple hardware.
We hope you enjoy the issue. Feel free to send us your feedback via facebook.com/ipadiphoneuser or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
