  • Apple iCloud launched by Steve Jobs

    Also unveiled at Apple's WWDC was iCloud, Apple's cloud services offering for remotely storing and updating content across multiple Apple devices - iPhone, iPad and iPod touch - as well as Mac and PC desktops.

    iCloud will take over the syncing of mail, contacts and calendars over multiple iOS devices, as well as ensuring content bought from Apple - books or music, for example - on one device is automatically pushed out to others.

  • iOS X Lion's conversation threading in Apple Mail 5

    Rounding out the product announcements made at WWDC was the launch of the latest operating system for Macs, known as Lion.

    As well as the introduction of full-screen apps, Launchpad - an overview of the apps running on your Mac - and easier server set-up, Lion has gained a conversation thread format similar to Gmail's for Apple Mail 5, shown above.

    For a full tour of the OS, see A safari through Apple's Lion OS for Mac.

  • Apple's Final Cut Pro x

    But that wasn't it for Apple product announcements in June - oh no. Apple was still to launch the latest version of its professional video-editing software, Final Cut Pro X.

    The new Auditions feature in Final Cut Pro X lets users see how edits they've picked out work with the rest of a sequence. Users can select multiple clips for audition, then try each one out to see how it fits in, eventually picking the best one without having to rejig the work each time.

    For the full hands-on with the video-editing software, see Apple pushes play on Final Cut Pro X.
