    Federighi: Now AirDrop works between iOS and the Mac
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:36:13 PM
    Federighi: Now we take it to the next level. It's called Hand Off.

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:36:47 PM
    Federighi: When you're working on your Mac, the devices in proximity are aware of each other. If want to pick up iPad, swipe up on screen and can pick up what working on.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:37:09 PM
    Federighi: Works in other direction. Say composing email on phone and you walk up to your Mac. Mac will notice what doing, will prompt right on dock, and you can pick up and finish writing that message.

    The threads linking OS X and iOS get even deeper and more intuitive. Great way to get you locked into the Apple ecosystem for computer, tablet, phone.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:37:41 PM
    Federighi: Been able to take same proximity awareness and make process of making hotspot easier than ever. Now Mac sees phones prompts you. Never type in a password

    Federighi: Works even if phone is across room, sitting in a handbag.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:37:50 PM

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:38:24 PM
    Federighi: Next thing wanted to handle was SMS. We all love iMessage. But then we have these green bubble friends. They have inferior devices and they insist on sending us message. Those messages don't show up on our other devices. Until now.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:38:36 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:38:37 PM

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:38:53 PM

  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:39:12 PM
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:39:12 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:39:25 PM
    Federighi: Works even if your phone is across the house in a charger. you never have to miss the call. Now Mac is all phone savvy. If see a number on Web page, can call it right from your Mac
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:39:26 PM

    Federighi: Let's check out Continuity. We're going to start with Hand Off. I'm going to pick up iPhone. I was composing an email about karaoke night. My Mac was aware I was using my phone.

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:40:58 PM
    Federighi: If I want to show this page, maybe pick up my iPad. There at the bottom is Safari. I just flick up, and it takes me right to where I left off. It's amazing.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:41:00 PM
    Quick -- is Pandora a real karaoke place?

  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:41:42 PM
    Are going to be asking everyone to mute their laptops all the time now so we don't hear phones ringing all the time?
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:41:51 PM
    Federighi: Can dial a phone number from web page.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:42:03 PM
    Federighi: Wanted to make a phone call to a new Apple employee. Dr. Dre
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:42:19 PM
    42 minutes in before we get the Dre cameo.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:42:27 PM
    Federighi: I talk to ppl lik ehim all the time, of course. It's very normal for me (says in tone that says not normal)
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:42:30 PM

    Dre asks what time he should get to work. Says Cook gets there at early so would have to get there at 4:30 if wanted to beat him. Orientation is at 9 ,though.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:43:26 PM
    Dre sounds like he's reading off cue cards. "I can't wait to work with the team."
