    They put it up next to the previous system, and it's dwarfed. It's one eighth the volume, Schiller says. Other things: it's got a build in handle. 6 Thunderbolt 2 controllers. All the IO also lights up when you're plugging it in. "This is without a doubt the future of the pro desktop." It's coming later this year, Schiller says. Assembled here in the U.S.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:03:09 PM
    That's it for the Mac Pro, now back to Tim Cook.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:03:30 PM
    Who does not have light up ports or a handle...he's talking to us about iCloud. Now more than 300M iCloud accounts, he says.

  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:04:05 PM
    One of the most popular features is iTunes in the cloud, Cook says. More than 300M people have been using this, and downloaded their stuff more than 300 million times.

  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:04:51 PM
    iCloud has incredible scale, Cook says. That includes sending 800 billion push message. But there's more...

    Preview of iCloud and how it works with iWork. To show us is Apple's Roger Rosner. iWork is Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:05:58 PM
    Later this year, there will be new iWork for both Mac and iOS, he says. But first, there's iWork for iCloud.

    Lets you "create beautiful documents whether you're on a Mac or a PC"

    Pages, Numbers and Keynote all now in iCloud now. He fires up Pages and opens a document he's already written. "This is all happening in the Web browser of course," Instead of a bunch of UI at the top, there are now context sensitive bars on the right of the page where you make adjustments.

  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:15:11 PM
    And here we go...iOS.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:15:21 PM
    And maybe some more stats: Cook brings up Black Friday shopping where iPad and iPhone users did more than Android. "This is what is most important to us," Cook says, citing a top ranking by JD Power and associates, then a separate study from Changewave.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:15:34 PM
    The TL;DR on this: Everybody is happy!

    The iPhone pitch at WWDC: comfort and satisfaction.

    My wife is part of the 6%.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:17:12 PM
    And another chart now: 93 percent of iOS users are on iOS 6, while iOS 5 makes up 6 percent. Cook stacks that up next to a chart of Android where it's split up, basically into three camps."This isn't just bad for users, but this version fragmentation is terrible for developers, as you know. .. iOS 6 is the world's most popular operating system, and for Android it's one that came out in 2010."
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:17:42 PM
    So the team at Apple has been working on the latest version -- it's iOS 7.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:17:42 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:18:01 PM
    It's called...7! (okay, that wasn't exciting)
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:18:02 PM
    Big applause for that. "The biggest change to iOS since the iPhone," Cook says.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:18:17 PM
    Stunning new user interface, Cook says. First we've got a video to show us what went into the design.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:18:20 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:18:44 PM
    Voiced by Apple's Jony Ive talking us through design features on the computers and mobile devices.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:18:55 PM
    "Design defines so much of our experience."

    Slide to unlock has no mini button.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:19:42 PM
    "I think there is a profound and enduring beauty in simplicity, in clarity, in efficiency. True simplicity is derived from so much more than just the absence of clutter and ornamentation. It's about bringing order to complexity."
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:20:03 PM
    It's...very flat.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:21:12 PM
    That weather app feels like the Yahoo app.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:21:26 PM
    Lots of oohs and awws. Everything's been revamped. That includes icons, buttons, color schemes. An addition of translucency in the keyboard. Looks like you've also got active home screens. THe screen will also provide a 3D appearance when you move your device around.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:21:37 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:22:03 PM
    And perhaps most importantly, Multitaking now shows you a preview of what that app is doing with what looks like cards.
