Developers converged on the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco to watch Cook and his lieutenants outline the latest tweaks and features new to its Macintosh computer and iOS mobile operating software.

Computer users would also be able to call up maps, search for information or look up documents by typing directly onto their home screens.
