Monday saw the annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) kick off with a keynote address by various Apple executives. In this edition of Macworld Video, Roman Loyola looks back at some of the highlights from the opening day.
The star of the keynote may very well have been the brand-new iPhone 3G S—boasting higher speeds and added features such as voice control, video capture and a compass. But several other products had their moment in the spotlight as well.

- iPhone 3.0 coming soon. The new iPhone 3.0 OS will be released on June 17, 2009. iPhone 3.0 will be a free release for all iPhone customers—both original iPhone users and iPhone 3G users will be able to download it at no charge once it’s released.
- Snow Leopard slated for release. The next major update to OS X will be available in September. However, OS X 10.6 will only work on Intel-based Macs, leaving the owners of aging PowerPC-based hardware without the ability to upgrade.
