Everything You Need To Know From Yesterday's Apple Event

Apple made some major announcements yesterday that will change everything. Here’s what went down at the annual software developers conference (in non-tech, normal people speak):

Apple Watch

Apple Watch has a new operating system! This means lots of updates. It’s basically going to compete with Fitbit as a fitness tracker. The activity stats will be in a more prominent place and also encourage you to be a major showoff. That’s right, you can share with your friends just how many more squats you’re doing than them, or, if you’re like me, just feel bad about not lifting a muscle when you see your friend has already ran a mile on Sunday. Let the games begin!

Apple TV

This is great news for lazy girls: you can now sign in to all your streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, HBOGO) with one universal login on Apple TV! I think Maroon 5 said it best, “Never gonna leave this bed.”


Siri is getting an upgrade! You will be able to finally use her to do more sh*t for you through non-Apple apps. Like, summon an Uber or charge your friends for shots via Venmo.

Next up, Apple is trying to be the new Facebook Messenger. You will be able to pay people through Messages and watch videos (not just the one’s your friends send). But, you guys, the best part is that Apple is TRIPLING THE SIZE OF EMOJIS. It’s also doing word replacements with emojis, so, like, autocorrect but with emojis. It’s an emoji world, and we’re all just living in it.


If you didn’t know, Mac’s operating system was called OS X for 15 years. Not anymore! The new name is MacOS and the first edition will be MacOS Sierra. Siri will be available for all your questions on the new system.

Apple Pay is also coming to the Internet for the first time–think of it as the new PayPal.

In Apple News news (ha!), users can subscribe to get every article from their favorite online publications. Basically like Flipboard or any other reader you use.

Now for Apple Music. A new design will be implemented that makes it easier to find your favorite tunes. iTunes did not have any updates, so maybe that feature is going in the direction of iPod Minis? Hopefully, we get another commercial with Taylor Swift embarrassing herself out of all of this.

Watch the entire two-hour + conference below, nerd:
