Apple talks about using Facebook at the Apple Developers Conference.
Facebook is getting a boost from Apple, which is building the social network into it’s iPhone and iPad software.
With the next version of Apple’s software, users will be able to update their Facebook status by talking to their phones.
From a disappointing initial public offering, Facebook is getting a boost from Apple, users will be able to like movies and apps in Apple’s iTunes store, Apple’s voice command will add a host of new languages and will be able to launch applications and movies, this will run on iPads for the first time.
Apples new software, IOS 6, will launch, it updates the software annually, coinciding with the release of a new iPhone.
As Apple lends Facebook a hand, it’s cutting off one of its links to Google, which makes a rival suite of software for smartphones, IOS 6 will use Apple’s own Maps applications rather than Google’s, the application will come with traffic reports and turn by turn navigation.
Apples new version of its Mac operating system, Mountain Lion, will go on sale, the update brings features from Apple’s phone and tablet software, it will be like the iMessage texting application, to the Mac.
Apples competitor, Microsoft is also making Windows more like its phone software with the release of Windows 8 later this year.
Mountain Lion will bring dictation to Macs, users will be able to input text by talking to the computer in any program, this is already a feature of Microsoft’s competing Windows software.
Apple showed off a laptop with a high resolution Retina display, showing a new standard of screen sharpness. The new MacBook Pro will have a 15 inch screen and four times the resolution of previous models.
