Earlier this week, Apple announced it had purchased the iOS-native app Workflow, an automation tool designed to help made your device smarter, and more productive. Now ordinarily this may not have been big news, but it comes at a time when the company is trying to position its mobile devices as real workhorses. So this week, we revisit the changing nature of work thanks to the computers in our pockets.
It's been more than 2 years since Apple first unveiled its first post-Jobs product, the Apple Watch, to the world. And although it hasn't become an essential device way the iPhone has, the wrist wearable is arguably Apple's clearest example of how it sees the future, a world of micro-interactions between many devices throughout the day.
