Apple WWDC 2022: Highlights & Trends for Nonprofits & Churches: Connected Church News

Apple concluded its Worldwide Developer Conference ( WWDC 2022) last week. It is one of the top annual tech conferences that the whole industry looks forward to, because it impacts future trends,audience behavior and so many other things in the digital world. I have two links in the description section, which will help you get a high level overview of everything that was announced. I’ve got one summary article, and another article from Apple that has all the details, if you want to dig into each of those separately. Do take a look at the description section. There were announcements about new devices, OS, and lots of other things, but there are three things that really caught my attention. One is the password management feature called Passkey, which I think is going to revolutionize the way we manage passwords. Definitely check that out. The other thing is Free Form, which is a Miro-board-like whiteboard,unlimited-whiteboard thing that they’re launching for Apple iPads, which is also going to be revolutionary.The third is, all the features they’re bringing to Messaging (iMessage) that is going to impact ministries and churches as well. Do have a look.
