Apple kicked off its WWDC conference today with a funny, inspiring video that salutes the millions of iPhone app developers out there.
After going through a bunch of obviously false stereotypes about developers, the video launches into mini-interviews and snapshots of dozens of people who tell Apple which apps they can’t live without.
“You open up an app, an you open up a possibility,” a person interviewed in the video says, “and the whole world is being born. What we really have is an intersection between technology and art.”
The whole piece is meant to be a big “thank you” to the developers all around the world who are working hard to make apps for iOS.
