Today brought an extra long keynote for Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, and in addition to the expected macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS updates, Apple announced a slew of hardware, including refreshed iMacs and MacBook Pros, a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and an updated 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Also in the hardware pipeline is a high-end iMac Pro and Apple’s entry in the smart speaker race, the HomePod. We’ve been writing hard all day, so apologies in advance for any rough edges that we didn’t have time to smooth out! Notable software releases this week include Evernote 6.11.1, Quicken 2017 for Mac 4.5.6, Fantastical 2.3.8, DEVONagent 3.9.7, DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.9.12, Caboodle 2.0.3, iMovie 10.1.6, BBEdit 11.6.6, and HoudahGeo 5.1.9.

The good news is everything else, including a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, improvements to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro model, and iPad-specific improvements in iOS 11. The new hardware is available this month; we’ll have to wait until fall for iOS 11.
