WWDC 2017

Well, WWDC has been and gone and there were a fair few announcements which could be interesting to my customers. As usual however I suspect that most of my customers will only be interested in certain announcements and not the entire two hours and twenty(ish) minutes. So I have created a simple timings list to allow you to jump to the most interesting pieces for you...

First off the entire WWDC video is available to stream from here:

https://www.apple.com/uk/apple-events/june-2017/

And this is the one I have don't timings for, but Macrumors.com have also put together a recap of the event in just 7 minutes available from:

https://youtu.be/S8PBiZlR56Q 

Which is handy for an overview although it misses a lot of the detail.

Depending on what platform you are running the full video on, it will either count the video progress in hours minutes and seconds, or just minutes and seconds. So if I say a time of 1:30:20 that means 1 hour 30 minutes and 20 seconds, this would translate to 90 minutes and 20 seconds if your player just gives you minutes... So on with the timings!
