Looking at WWDC with an Eye toward Photography
Now that I'm writing specifically about computational photography for my Smarter Image column at Popular Photography, my antennae tend to pick up on new features and technologies with AI and ML underpinnings. At this week's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) keynote, Apple announced not only a redesigned MacBook Air powered by the new M2 processor, but shared details of the forthcoming macOS 13 Ventura, iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and watchOS 9.
In my latest column, I look at some of the features that stood out to me, from the laptop itself to features such as Continuity Camera, iCloud Photo Shared Library, and clever ways the systems are acting on understanding the contents of images. Read it here: Meet Apple’s powerful new M2 MacBook Air.
What are you most interested in from the WWDC announcements? There’s a lot to chew on, and I’ll be incorporating the new system changes in my Take Control books as we get closer to release in the fall. For example, my Take Control of Your Digital Storage, which recently bumped to version 2.2, will certainly get updated, as will my Take Control of Managing Your Files.
[FYI, I know this is the second email to go out this week. I missed sending one out for the previous column.]
