The two hours of the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote were enough for Apple CEO Tim Cook and Craig Federighi, SVP of Software Engineering, as well as other execs to quickly highlight a handful of new features for iOS 8 and Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite.

Today, Apple showed us what it has been working on during the past six months or more: iOS 8, the biggest iOS release even since the App Store, and Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, a completely new, completely Mac software that enables a completely new relationship between Mac and iOS devices.

  • Braille keyboard for direct 6 dot braille input
