    Federighi is seen as a rising star at Apple, and he oversees both iOS and Mac OS X software. He took on the role in late 2012 after Cook fired iOS head Scott Forstall following Apple’s Maps fiasco.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:35:18 PM
    Mac Time, everyone.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:35:25 PM
    Made a joke about a naming controversy
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:36:04 PM
    Talking about the name OS X itself. Been with us for over 5 years. As we looked at it alongside its younger brethren, realized a name that would make it clearer
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:36:11 PM
    Now called macOS (as expected)
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:36:25 PM
    Each version of macOS does have a special name for a place that's special to us in California

    "Continuity is like magic. Sense devices around themselves and move from one task to another across devices."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:37:21 PM

  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:37:37 PM
    "Today when you first approach your Mac, the experience is something like this. Type and mistype and retype password and then in and using Mac"
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:37:39 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:37:39 PM
    Continuity is a big part of how other Apple devices work together. Auto Unlock looks like it'll enable...Touch ID?
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:37:50 PM
    "For many of us, we have a device securely authenticated to our wrists."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:37:58 PM
    So when you open your Mac, it automatically logs you in
  • Sarah Tew 6/13/2016 5:38:04 PM

    Universal Clipboard is the next feature
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:38:15 PM

  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:38:21 PM

  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:38:22 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:38:42 PM
    "What if when you're on your iPhone and you saw some text, went to copy it, when went ot Mac, could just paste it right in. Now you can. Images, video, etc"

    "For 30 years now we've all learned to do the things we're working on right now. Where put those? So often on desktop. So make desktop available on all our other Macs. And on the go on iPhones."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:39:54 PM
    "Next up is optimized storage. We love using our Macs. We fill them with so much stuff."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:40:00 PM
    (where storage is full)
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:40:08 PM
    Solution to make room for new fils by keeping older ones in the cloud
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 5:40:11 PM
    iCloud Drive wants to to everywhere. And it folds in Desktop files on iOS. Interesting. Not a huge change.
