Video Shared With Apple Employees Shows ‘Softer Side’ of Steve Jobs

A video obtained exclusively by ABC News today aims to showcase the „softer side“ of Steve Jobs, with the former Apple CEO addressing an assembly of Apple employees the day before the release of the original iPhone in 2007.

During the brief clips shared by ABC News, Jobs urges the company’s employees to go in to an Apple Store and „just give one of the Apple retail store employees a hug,“ discusses his theory of corporate management, and debunks the history to his famous ripped jeans.

The footage was shared with Apple’s employees yesterday to mark the fourth anniversary of Jobs’ death on October 5, 2011. A handful of well-known Apple executives put together some personal essays in memory of the Apple co-founder, including current Apple CEO Tim Cook, calling him „brilliant“ and with „a great sense of humor.“

A lot of Jobs’ past has been resurfacing recently alongside the release of a handful of films chronicling his life, including Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine and the upcoming Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs movie. A few of Jobs’ supporters aren’t backing many of these interpretations of him, including his widow Laurene Powell Jobs, who tried to cease production on the Sorkin script multiple times.

Hidden Features in iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan

iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan have been available to developers for two weeks now, giving us time to discover all of the little features in both operating systems that weren’t discussed during the keynote event. We’ve created two videos that highlight some of the small but neat additions to iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, which you can watch below.

Apple’s introduced a wide range of feature additions and minor tweaks in iOS 9 that make some very useful improvements to iOS. For example, there’s now a Notification Center widget that displays the battery life of connected devices like the Apple Watch, and there’s a search bar in the Settings app that lets you find a specific setting very quickly.

A „Back to App“ feature lets you swap between apps quickly when you click a notification or a link, and some keyboard changes on the iPad make editing documents a whole lot easier.

OS X 10.11 El Capitan has fewer small feature additions, but there are some improvements worth pointing out. The famous rainbow wheel pointer or „beachball,“ which spins when a program is loading has brighter, more defined colors, and the cursor is now easier to find when waking a Mac from sleep. There’s also a revamped Disk Utility window and a dedicated Find My Friends widget for the Notification Center.

If you want to see an overview of all of the features in the new operating systems, make sure to check out our roundups: iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Our dedicated iOS 9 and El Capitan forums are also an excellent resource for learning more about the software we’ll all be using in the fall.
