Some late-in-the-day WWDC keynote tidbits….

In all the coverage of the Worldwide Apple Developer Conference keynote, here’s some items you may have missed….

Apple’s racked up 27 million Apple Music subscribers, Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, said during the WWDC keynote. That’s about 7 million more since December. 

AppleCare+ for Mac now extends the service and telephone technical support periods to three years, up from one year and 90 days respectively. This includes access to Apple experts via chat or phone, and global repair coverage for the device.

Logitech has already introduced a keyboard/case combo for the new iPad Pros. It’s the Slim Combo.

WaterField Designs unveiled the upgraded, ultra-light and protective Dash 2.0 Sleeve in custom sizes for Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad, the updated MacBook laptops and the new Surface Pro. The Dash sleeve now includes a rear, zippered mesh pocket for accessories and the Apple Pencil, a choice of a vertical- or horizontal-oriented opening for easy use with backpacks or briefcases, and a new highly-durable fabric option coated with water-resistant Nanotex.

With iOS 11, users will gain the ability to adjust the AirPods’ double-tap action with new control options.

Oh yes, and two questions I have:

Why can’t I get a non-iMac Pro in space grey?

Why no Apple Pencil 2 with Smart Connector?
