TidBITS#1129/11-Jun-2012

Kudos to the TidBITS staff for their dedicated work covering (and providing color commentary on) Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote today. We have articles about OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion shipping in July with a few previously unannounced features, the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models (including the MacBook Pro with Retina Display), the minimal speed bump to the Mac Pro, and Apple’s extensive preview of iOS 6. We’re also pleased to announce “Take Control of Apple Mail in Lion” (with a free upgrade to “Take Control of Apple Mail in Mountain Lion”) and an upcoming live online presentation on what to do when MobileMe is shut off in a few weeks. Also, don’t miss the news about LinkedIn passwords being stolen and the latest shot in the DRM wars. Notable software releases this week include CloudPull 2.1, Script Debugger 5.0, Coda 2.0.1, PDFpen and PDFpenPro 5.8.3, and Firefox 13.0.

Apple Previews iOS 6 for Fall Release

iOS 6 provides maps with turn-by-turn directions, encourages Siri to provide more results, lets a lost phone’s finder call you, and gives you the option to sleep through annoying 2 AM calls. It’s due out in the third quarter of 2012, likely at the same time as the next iPhone model.

ExtraBITS for 11 June 2012

The main happening this week was Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, and although Apple’s webcast isn’t yet available, you can listen in on our color commentary during the presentation. Also, in an extremely troubling move, Apple refused to allow Rogue Amoeba’s Airfoil Speakers Touch into the App Store until Rogue Amoeba removed a perfectly legitimate feature. Boo!
