    Apple has made the two-hour presentation of WWDC available on its website and issued OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8 to its developers. During this year’s WWDC event, Apple debuted its latest OS X Yosemite, the latest iteration of iOS 8 and some surprises along the way. The company’s events website now has a streamed version of the presentation. OS X 10.10 Yosemite merges the design language further into Apple’s desktop operating system, has a more powerful Spotlight, an enhanced Notification Center, and a “dark mode”. The new function called Continuity, is perhaps the most exciting new feature. It enables iOS devices to share data and other information.

    In iOS 8, there are many new features including expanded spotlight searches, QuickType keyboard, a more intuitive Notification Center, and additional Siri features. Apple also introduced a HealthKit and a corresponding Health app to combine health related data and activity in a single repository. Finally, Apple has a new coding language in Swift, which can be integrated with coding language that already exists with little to no effort.

    Beta versions of both iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 can be downloaded by developers via Apple’s Developer Portal.
