Have you ever noticed that when Apple rolls out a new product, like the Apple Watch or latest iPhone, there are already a host of apps ready to install and use on the new gadgets? That happens because Apple gives software developers a heads-up about what it's working on and what new gadgets will be out on the market in the months to come.
Today is the start of one of those heads-up meetings. Apple calls the four-day event the World Wide Developers Conference, or WWDC. There's been months of speculation leading up to WWDC 2015. If you use iPhone, iPads, Mac computers, Apple Watch or other Apple gear, this is a sneak peek of the big changes coming to your gadgets. And if you love music, just wait until you see the best that Apple saved for last.
iPad users get a major upgrade with new capabilities. Apple announced that the next new operating system for iPad, iOS 9, will allow multitasking and split-screen displays.
Split view allows two apps to be open and displayed on the same iPad screen.
But that's just scratching the surface of today's big announcements.
