What’s Important from Apple’s September Event

What’s Important from Apple’s September Event

For years, Apple has introduced new mobile devices at their September event. This week proved to keep the tradition alive, and we now know Apple’s lineup as we head into the holiday season. Here are the highlights from this week’s Apple media event.

Enter Apple Music

Enter Apple Music

"Apple is passionate about music," Steve Jobs often said. Those who know Steve's history know that music genuinely shaped the man. After his passing, Tim Cook echoed these words, but they always rang hollow to me. Tim is an oppressions guy. Sure you love music, Tim. It's what launched the iPod and therefore Apple into the pockets of millions. Without the success of the iPod, Apple would not have had the resources to research, build, and ship the iPhone; which as we all know took Apple into the stratosphere. The cynic in me never believed the post-Jobs, "music is our passion" mantra. But that changed yesterday.

Introducing the App Hall of Fame

Finding a useful app seems to require the sleuthing skills of Sherlock, doesn't it? I would wager that the last time you installed a quality app, it was because of the recommendation of a friend with good taste. We realize app discovery isn't exactly easy, and wanted to host a short list of truly impressive apps. So, we made our own collection. It's called the App Hall of Fame.

Looking ahead to 2015

2014 was a record year for Appinstructor. Each week was delightfully busier than the last! In addition to helping families protect their kids from the abuses of technology, we’ve also enjoyed streamlining tech systems and implementing modern tech at several businesses. Most people these days are juggling multiple devices, email accounts, and cloud services, so the need for simplification is bigger than ever.
