We may still be waiting for those thrilling new hardware announcements, but there was plenty at Apple’s Worldwide Developers’ conference to get excited about. Previews of OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 hinted at a more open Apple, at least as far as developers are concerned. Add to that the acquisition of Beats and with it, Dr Dre and it seems Tim Cook is shaping a new Apple.
In the new, August 2014 issue of MacUser, we’ve got detailed coverage of those announcements, along with previews of, and developer reaction to, Yosemite and iOS 8.
We’ve also got details of Apple’s new lower-cost iMac and MacBook Air, a preview of the new Adobe Creative Cloud apps, and the inside story of how The Guardian’s new iPad app was made.
Elsewhere this issue, Howard Oakley muses on the possibility of an iPad Air, Daniel Benneworth-Gray finds WWDC a baffling experience, and Keith Martin uncovers trends in icon design.
We’ve got reviews of the latest version of Pixelmator, LaCie’s 500GB SSD Thunderbolt portable drive, and Panasonic’s Lumix GH4 stills and video camera.
