Discussing how they use their Apple Watches, some of their favorite Watch apps, and what they want next are the panel of Steve Sande, Mike Schmitz, and host Chuck Joiner.

  • MacVoices #17184: Josh Centers Takes Control of iOS 11

    · 00:40:12 · MacVoices Video HD

    In anticipation of the next version of iOS, Josh Centers gives us early access to Take Control of iOS 11. With new productivity features, iOS 11 is a progression with both cosmetic and functional differences. Some apply to the iPad, some to the iPhone, some to both. Josh discusses how developer’s adoption will be key to some of those, the promise of Drag and Drop, and why you need to screen your mission-critical apps before you upgrade.
