Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday brought some #BIGnews for users during the livestream of the event’s keynote presentation, hosted by Apple CEO Tim Cook. While last year’s event focused on speed and responsiveness of Apple software, this year’s conference has brought a host of highly-anticipated updates with iOS 13, along with the new Mac Pro - an incredible piece of hardware geared toward professionals by delivering features such as the powerful graphics card and 28-core Xeon Intel processor. Here are some of the most notable announcements from the event:
It’s that time of year again! Every January since 2006 (except the year we were snowed in), the BIGfish team migrates to Las Vegas to participate in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and share client news with the tech world. This year is no different; we’ll be attending CES 2017 with clients Ring, Petnet and Nightingale. Here’s what to expect from them:
Today, BIGfish client Petnet announced its latest round of funding: $10 million Series A, led by Petco. With the new funds, Petnet will continue to expand its product line, develop its pet food delivery service and enhance its infrastructure. Beginning this week, Petnet’s SmartFeeder ($149) and SmartBowl ($49) are available at select Petco stores nationwide and online at Petco.com. With this new round, Petnet has raised $21.5 million to date.
On Monday, Apple held their final product announcement at the Cupertino Town Hall before moving to their new campus in 2017. The hour-long event covered what Apple has in store for the future of the company, from products to policy.
