"The End of the Apple Man"

Katie Notopoulos for BuzzFeed:

"For women, safety while walking down the street is something we think about pretty much daily, most times we leave the house."

What I found most impressive during the keynote, behind feature updates and announcements, was Apple’s true commitment to diversity.

Between a very diverse keynote (4 women on stage, 3 people of color, and the incredible Bozoma St John - whom everyone is asking to see in upcoming keynotes), and features dedicated to security and to users with disabilities, it feels clear to me that no other company really tries to help their end-users who happen to be outside of the stereotypical Silicon Valley White Man.
