    The iPad Pro is the most accessible computer Apple has ever built

    I contend that the iPad is in many ways *more* versatile than a laptop for people with disabilities. Computing and productivity isn’t always about a spec sheet or raw power or Photoshop. The iPad *is* a full-fledged computer, no question about it. After using a review unit for a while, I believe the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the most accessible computer Apple has ever built. Read More

    Google Maps Now Lets You Scale Yosemite’s El Capitan Mountain

    El Capitan is already something I associate almost by default with Mac OS X, but it was a real mountain before that – millions of years before Apple previewed OS X 10.11, in fact, though it only got its name in 1851.

    Web Developers Can Create Custom Force Touch Interactions In OS X 10.11

    The version of Safari that ships with OS X 10.11 ‘El Capitan’ allows web developers to build custom experiences that work with Force Touch input, similar to how native app developers have had access to that new hardware before now. That means that you can set custom actions for how content on your web page responds to deeper clicks on the trackpads that ship in Apple’s… Read More

    AirPlay Works With Safari Media Content In OS X 10.11

    Apple’s under-the-hood changes in OS X 10.11 will offer some good advantages to developers hoping to create better web-based content for consumption in Safari. One such advantage is the extension of AirPlay video support to Apple’s browser on the desktop, where it had previously only been available on iOS. Users can, in 10.11, play media from the web to AirPlay-enabled device like… Read More

    Apple’s New Developer Program Offers iOS, OS X And watchOS Tools For $99

    Apple has consolidated its developer program, bundling together access to developer tools and pre-release software builds for iOS, OS X and watchOS all under one umbrella. The unification of the dev programs is very much in favor of developers; previously, the Mac and iOS programs each cost $99 per year for access, but now it’s just $99 annually for both, plus the new watchOS native… Read More
