The wait is almost over...

The wait is almost over...

It’s almost time for Apple’s “Gather Round” event to begin. The Apple online store for iPhones has been down most of the morning, there have been last minute leaks of more information (this time from Apple), and the tech press is filing into the Steve Jobs Theater at the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, CA… except for me (I’m on on a cruise ship in the Atlantic) and Dennis (somewhere in Colorado). Being the dedicated tech bloggers we are, we’re still planning on giving you coverage of the event today.

Four months ago I had never heard of Jamf or the Jamf Nation User Conference. Now I feel like I have a good idea of exactly what Jamf does and how it can help health care, education, and businesses deploy and maintain Macs, iPads and Apple TVs. If you are responsible for maintaining multiple Apple products, Jamf is the go-to choice for doing so.

AWT TV Episode 21: The September 12, 2017 Apple Event

Talk about good timing! We decided to switch our AWT TV livestream to Tuesday nights a while back, and sure enough that just happened to coincide with the September 12 Apple Event.

Are you excited yet? Tomorrow's Apple event should prove to be one of the most interesting product reveals in the history of the company, even if this weekend's leaks took a bit of the surprise out of what we expect to see.
