(Mobile) Software Is Eating The World
During Apple's product event Wednesday, the limelight was on the iPhone 7 and its advancements in wireless connectivity and processing power, among other things. But isn't this the age of software, not hardware? Of course it is -- and so it's worth diving a bit into what will make the new iPhone stand out on the software side, too. The next version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 10, will be launching Sept. 13, just a few days before the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus become available. Along with the new iPhones, iOS 10 will also be able to run on eight earlier versions of iPhone (all the way down to iPhone 5) and on eight versions of iPad. (See the full list of devices that can run iOS 10 here.)
