-Jacob Penderworth

11.28:

“Also, we’re unifying your phone number and Apple ID. So if someone calls you on your phone number for Facetime, you can answer it on your iPad or Mac. And we’re doing the same thing with iMessage.”

-Jacob Penderworth

11.27:

-Jacob Penderworth

11.26:

“I can see many of you are like me and you’ve been awakened in the middle of the night — this tells your phone not to bother you. The messages will still come to your phone, it just won’t light up the screen or make a sound.”

11.23:

Very nice shortcuts.

-Jacob Penderworth

11.23:

-Jacob Penderworth

11.20:

-Jacob Penderworth

-Jacob Penderworth

11.13:

-Jacob Penderworth

11.13:

“I’m happy to announce iOS 6.”

11.12:

-Jacob Penderworth

11.12:

10.43:

Available today.

-Jacob Penderworth

10.43:

-Jacob Penderworth
