Weekly Roundup

by Aaron Brethorst | September 07, 2013

Happy iPhone week! It's expected that Apple will be announcing the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on the 10th, along with either the iOS 7 GM or a date for its release. I'm excited to see the hardware Apple will be releasing, but I'm even more excited to see what you all have been working on for iOS 7. I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

Best,
Aaron
