Tech giant Apple made a bunch of announcements at its annual developer's conference yesterday: A new internet radio platform, major changes to iOS operating system that runs the iPhone and iPad, and a new laptop, which the company claims has a battery life of 12 hours.

Also, Apple will assemble its Mac Pro line of desktop computers right here in the USA.
