I was thrilled to attend the World Wide Developer’s Conference this past week in San Francisco, CA on behalf of the CoPilot team. Having never been to a developer’s conference, I wasn’t sure what to expect from WWDC. There is so much to see and do that the event can seem overwhelming. Luckily, you’re surrounded by like-minded people, each one as excited as I was to participate in Apple’s innovative and inspiring conference.
As a developer, I was interested to know the new features and design that Apple had in store and how we could maximize the CoPilot experience in iOS7. It was really cool to learn about the changes firsthand, like the automatic App updates to keep the latest version of CoPilot on your device. Of course, we will continue to provide What’s New information on our blogs and social media for our users to see new features and updates.
Here at CoPilot , we’re excited to dive into all the new APIs available in order to give our iOS users a great experience while using our apps. iOS 7 will be available in the fall and we can’t wait to see how awesome CoPilot can function within it.
