Episode 2 – WWDC 2015 announcements, part 1

In the second episode of our podcast, we review some of the key announcements from Apple’s WWDC keynote, focusing particularly on the iOS, OS X, and watchOS news. Also this episode, we introduce a new weekly feature called “Question of the Week”, in which we’ll do a deep dive into answering a question that may be on listeners’ minds. Given that the open sourcing of the Swift programming language got the biggest applause from the audience at WWDC, we thought we’d start by explaining what it means and why it’s significant. Special thanks to Farshad Nayeri, who helped us in our research into this question.

Next week, we’ll follow up with more analysis of the WWDC news, with a special focus on the content announcements including Apple Music and the News app. Our Question of the Week will be looking at the DJs for Apple’s Beats 1 radio station and what makes them unique. We invite listeners to submit questions for subsequent weeks in the comments below, on Twitter (@jandawson, @aaronmiller), or via email (jan at jackdawresearch dot com).

As ever, you can also find the podcast on iTunes, in the Overcast app, or your own favorite podcast app. Here is the RSS feed for the app if you want to add it manually.
