Apple releases a magic keyboard with a numeric keypad

1 Comment

If you’re looking for a wired keyboard from Apple, well you’re out of luck. The company introduced the Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad shortly after its WWDC keynote today, and quickly removed its wired keyboard with numeric keypad from its online store.

The move increases the price of the cheapest keyboard you can purchase from Apple from $49 to $79 for its standard Magic Keyboard, while the new magic keyboard with numeric keypad will come in at $129.

From Idea To Development: How To Write Mobile Application Requirements That Work

1 Share

   

Why write requirements? Well, let's imagine you want to produce a mobile app, but you don’t have the programming skills. So, you find a developer who can build the app for you, and you describe the idea to him. Surprisingly, when he showcases the app for the first time, you see that it is not exactly what you want. Why? Because you didn’t provide enough detail when describing the idea.

From Idea To Development: How To Write Mobile Application Requirements That Work

To prevent this from happening, you need to formalize the idea, shape it into something less vague. The best way to do that is to write a requirements document and share it with the developer.
