Getting the Worldwide Developer Conference perspective from someone who was there is always cool, so today Dave Hamilton joins Jeff Gamet to share his thoughts on the event. They look at Apple's Monday morning keynote, iOS 9 and the iPad, Apple Watch, and more.
When iOS 9 is released this fall you'll be able to answer phone calls on your iPad or Mac even if you left your iPhone at home.
