Oh, the APPOCALYPSE! WWDC 2017's opening vid shows how dependent on software we've become

What would happen if all the apps we love and use in our everyday lives suddenly stopped functioning out of thin air? Well, simply put, a true appocalypse.

This is what Apple's opening video spot just before WWDC kicked off depicts, and it's a telltale for our new reality which is fully dependent on the software and gadgets we have in our pockets, vehicles, and homes.

Albeit funny and light-hearted, the video spot conveys a deeper, grimmer message - we are so over-reliant on technology that our world as we know it will crumble before our eyes if humanity's software suffers an ill fate, perish the thought.
