    App releases presented like "stories" in Today mode. Promoting in an article style format...so weird.
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:26:58 PM
  • Ry Crist 6/5/2017 6:27:09 PM
    Agree with Scott -- those huge app promos eat up a lot of real estate in the 'Today' tab. Less developers in the spotlight.

    Monument Valley 2 hitting today (yay)

    I legit think I'm getting carpal tunnel from these events. I need to start doing hand stretching exercises before these keynotes. haha
  • Ry Crist 6/5/2017 6:28:29 PM
    Guess I should finally take Monument Valley 1 for a spin.
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:28:33 PM
    I'm worried I'm going to get more lost in this new App Store

    I wonder how many people actually use the App Store to discover new apps. Typically, I only head to the App Store to download apps I already know I want.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:29:56 PM
    Phil Schiller is back up
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:29:58 PM
    I just want a wider-view look at apps
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:30:11 PM
    "That's your first glimpse of an entirely new App Store."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:30:19 PM
    And ... Schiller is off and Federighi is back up.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:30:33 PM
    "Metal 2 and HEVC are coming to iOS too.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:30:38 PM
    "There's more and it starts with machine learning."
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:30:42 PM
    Machine Learning Time
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:30:58 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:31:04 PM
    "We use it on the iPad for palm rejection when using Apple Pencil. ... seen it in memories."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:31:20 PM
    New APIs. Vision API that provides face tracking, facial recognition.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:31:27 PM
    Natural Language API
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:31:27 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:31:37 PM
    Vision API seems to be for camera-based machine learning
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:31:37 PM
    CoreML - what underpins these APIs
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:32:17 PM
    "The performance really is incredible. ... iPhone is 6X faster than the Google Pixel and Samsung S8" in terms of recognizing images.
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:32:21 PM
    AR!
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:32:23 PM
    "Next I want to turn to AR"
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:32:25 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:32:39 PM
    Pokemon Go is being shown as an example.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:32:40 PM
    "With multitouch we've really changed how you interact with the screen. And two cameras."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:32:45 PM
    ARKit
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:32:49 PM
    Demo time for this
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:32:51 PM
    ARKit will develop AR apps and tools
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:32:57 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:33:02 PM
    You knew Pokemon Go would lead to this...
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:33:04 PM
    "We've all seen a lot of carefully edited vision videos on this topic, but in this case I'd like to show you something real."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:33:19 PM
    "Here's an iPhone using its camera ... can identify table and can add an object."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:33:31 PM
    So you can make it look like there's a virtual cup of coffee on a table
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:33:37 PM
    Object placement on table, recognizing surfaces. And keeping objects reasonably in place.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:33:43 PM
    "I can add other objects to the scene and these things can actually interact."
