    Now CarPlay: CarPlay is available on up to 90% of cars sold in the US.
     
    Now, a new CarPlay dashboard. Music has been redesigned, too. And Siri works with Waze.

    Shortcuts will also have a new suggested personalizations, giving ideas for automated things like stuff to do when you get to the gym

    Siri is going to sound better. Neural TTS (better cadence)
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:02:01 PM
    Also, the Siri voice is changing. Apple's worked on making it sound much more realistic. (And it does sound less robotic)

  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:02:52 PM
    Also, other iOS 13 options -- low data mode, separate emoji and globe keys, mute threads in Mail.

    Here's comes the fragmentation...
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:03:37 PM
    Acknowledging it’s its own thing.
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:04:06 PM
    Federighi says the iPad has evolved -- slide-over, split-view, drag-drop and pencil. Big changes for iPad, and "the time has come to recognize the platform in a special way."
     
    iPad's iOS is getting a new rebrand as iPadOS
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 6:04:18 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:04:21 PM
    It’s called iPadOS, now.
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:04:50 PM
    Swipe over can pin widgets to iPad home screen. Nice.

    Now we're going to get a demo. We get stuff like widgets on the home screen. There's also a slide-over history, so you can switch quickly between apps. That's pretty nifty.
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:05:47 PM
    All slide over pop-out panels can be browsed and brought up fast. (Do you know the difference between that and Split View?)
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 6:05:55 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:06:03 PM
    Split-view gets multi-window options (thank you!). You can have two Notes side-by-side. (Ahem, Google Docs and Evernote)
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 6:06:21 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:06:29 PM
    Split View now can do multi window in same app beyond just Safari. Notes demoed.

    Good laptop-like features for iPad OS. Add mouse/cursor support and it's basically a laptop, end of story.
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:07:13 PM
    When will Google Docs become iPad friendly
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 6:07:33 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 6:07:34 PM
    Not end of story, Dan
