appleSAN FRANCISCO, CA – It was a moment nerds and geeks had been waiting for. They all joined forces under one roof for Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC. But some techies might have been left feeling a little high and dry. At last year’s event, Apple introduced a major overhaul to the iOS operating system. This time, there was no big hardware announcement. Instead, plenty of tweaks to stuff users had been begging for.

Have you ever been part of an annoying group message that just won’t end? That annoyance will now be a thing of the past.

“You can now do ‘do not disturb’ on a per thread level, and you can choose when to leave the thread,” said Craig Federighi, Apple Senior Vice President of Software Engineering.

Users will also get improved interactive notifications across all their devices, not to mention an entirely new look to your iMacs called Yosemite. You’ll also be able to receive calls on your iPhone, iPad or iMac. They even took a little time during the keynote to call Apple’s newest employee, Dr. Dre.

From a new look, to new apps and more, there’s going to be plenty to geek out about!
