  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:49:37 PM
    "Sierra is available to devs today. Doing a public beta in July. Can sign up now."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:49:43 PM
    Available to everyone else in the fall.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:49:52 PM
    That's it for macOS
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:49:57 PM
    Next is iOS
  • Rich Brown 6/13/2016 5:49:58 PM
    Mouse/trackpad or keyboard command to initiate Siri would prevent cross-talk between devices, but not great as an always-on mic for home control.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:50:05 PM
    Hitting a big milestone. iOS 10
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:50:06 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:50:13 PM
    iOS 10...the main event.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:50:18 PM
    iOS 10 is a huge release for developers. The biggest iOS release ever for our users.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:50:24 PM
    10 big features I want to talk about today
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:50:26 PM
    1. User experience
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:50:41 PM
    "In iOS 10 redesigned experience of the lock screen. Expanded use of 3D Touch."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:50:44 PM
    Demo of this now
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:50:46 PM
    A new lock screen, and new 3D Touch functions
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:50:49 PM
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:51:01 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:51:15 PM
    "Raise to wake lets you see what's on your lock screen without ever touching a button."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:51:26 PM
    "I just raise my wrist and my phone wakes up, just like that."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:51:36 PM
    iOS 10 has an always-on lock screen mode, for ambient wake-up. Very Android. And gets you to notifications and 3D Touch functions.
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:51:38 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:51:39 PM
    "Beautiful notifications no longer darken your wallpaper. Really interactive through 3D Touch."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:51:53 PM
    "Can get rich detail about invitation. Can see calendar, accept invtiation, etc."
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 5:52:06 PM
    Craig Federighi acknowledges how irritating it was to just blow past the notifications screen without seeing what was there.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:52:07 PM
    I wonder how this lift-to-wake mode deals with security, though.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:52:10 PM
    "I can respond right here, I can say in the conversation, right here on the lock screen, even get rich images right in line."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:52:27 PM
    "If I get a notification from Uber, I can just press in and get this really interactive live status update."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:52:39 PM
    "Can get notifications from the top of the screen. Now can clear all notifications with a tap."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:52:46 PM
    Notifications become a bit like mini-apps. A bit like Instant Apps on Android N, maybe?
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:52:47 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:52:51 PM
    "Control Center is available from the bottom of the screen as well. Can swipe up from the bottom."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:53:02 PM
    "If swipe over, a special area for music with nice big controls and album art"
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:53:12 PM
    "Made it easier than ever to get to camera from lock screen. Slide over from the right."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:53:22 PM
    Music play has been off-shifted to second screen on Control Center. More buttons, perhaps
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:53:27 PM


  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:53:29 PM
    "Made it easier than ever to get to widgets. Slide over the other way."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:53:43 PM
    "I can even get more information right here from apps on my home screen."
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:53:47 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:53:52 PM
    "I can see who it is I've been ignoring this whole time."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:54:01 PM
    "I also get great information on activity without opening the app"
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:54:11 PM
    "Can work well with third party apps as well. ESPN, for instance."
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:54:19 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:54:25 PM
    You can see who's been sending messages in mail, or get activity heads-up in 3D Touch...widgets mean the apps are almost Apple Watch-like.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:54:34 PM
    "I can get that show more information and I get a graphical update of highlights on the last game. If I tap in, live action" video of a game
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:54:52 PM video in notifications! My Jets games will never be the same.
