Happy New Year! 🎉

2015 has been a big year for iOS development. We've seen the release of two brand new platforms, watchOS and tvOS, as well as a really solid release in iOS 9. Swift continues to mature, and now that it's open source we're also going to benefit from community contributions, both with committed code but also in terms of helping to guide the direction of the language. It's a good time to be an iOS developer!

I wonder what 2016 will bring. I can't imagine we'll see any brand new classes of device this year, but I do think the iPad Pro will be something to keep a close eye on. The hardware, and pen accessory are fantastic and while the OS could suit it better, some of the iOS 9 features were clearly developed with the Pro in mind. I'd bet we'll see much more focus on the Pro in iOS 10.
