They quoted on stage “”We’ve come up with a far better solution — a push notification service Apple will provide to all developers.”
They said that it is super easy to download these documents and look at them on your iPhone, they have also added as said above bulk delete and move which is very handy indeed, it will give you the ability to save images you might get via email, all you need to do is tap on them to save them to your library, the calculator has a scientific mode. They have added parental controls. Teenagers might not like this, but that’s the way it has to be.” All the stuff we saw a couple months back.
