Its the first year where I was catching up on it a couple of hours after it ended.
But I have some quick thoughts after watching the replay.
This is an idea that was given to me from a lovely Patreon Supporter. You can follow or even put a pound in here.
There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t use the iPad.
But six weeks on with iOS 11 still installed, I thought I’d share what apps I frequently use.
People have forgotten.

The iPad grew up last Monday. Finally.
I’ve purposefully held back from writing this the day after or even the same week as WWDC. Out of the products announced on Monday, iOS 11 is full of small updates that people are still finding out now. A different volume overlay on videos wasn’t found until Thursday for instance.
But first, as Marvin Candle once said, a little history.
Last year was all about the three, but this year it’s a bit different; iOS 11 for iPad.
The 9th of January 2007 was when the iPhone was first announced. I remember watching the first part of the keynote, where Steve Jobs announced a ‘Widescreen iPod with touch controls‘. I had been hoping for one for so long, I was so excited to see one finally confirmed.
But then I had to go to work, and it wasn’t until I got back around midnight, that I could see what an ‘iPhone’ was.
I remember buying one from eBay not long after its June 29th launch. It even came in an AT&T bag, and using some ‘methods’, got it unlocked. I haven’t owned another smartphone since.
Reading Apple’s ‘Newsroom’ post from this morning, I believe it when they say it’s still only the start of things. We really are still closer to the starting line than the finish line ten years on.
Some posts from around the web:
As I was writing the impressions last week, I decided to walk around Lincoln and take side-by-side shots of the 7, alongside the iPhone 3G, mainly for curiosity.
None of these images have been changed, they were both taken at the same time, no settings applied.
I would also not recommend seeing them on Apple News, as they don’t show the slider feature. Open in Safari and the below will work as it should do.
Enjoy the findings.

I didn’t like the 6 and 6S.
The design I didn’t like, with their thick border lines. I always thought it was a step back from the elegant iPhone 5 and 4 before it.
It even felt uncomfortable to hold to me.
I wanted to go back, and I did with the iPhone SE. The latest features alongside a great design in a smaller body? How could I say no.
But then on Friday, the iPhone 7 appeared in matte black.
