    You know, they say lack of sleep has a major impact on your cognitive abilities, so maybe staying up all night coding isn't the best idea.
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:03:23 PM
    Cook: We are so inspired by the millions of incredible apple developers around the world. Your dreams and your dedication to fulfill those dreams comes across in the apps you create.
    You make the world a better place and that is why we're here this morning.

  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:09:56 PM
    Cook: Apple TV is designed to be used for the whole family, but we wanted to make it more personal.
    Today, the up-next list has a list of shows for everyone in the home.... so we're introducing mulit-user support for TVOS
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:10:09 PM
    Family members can be accessed on side. (Do this for iOS!)
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:10:20 PM
    Cook: TVOS also delivers Apple Music ... now with multi-user support, everyone gets a personalized music experience.
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:10:51 PM
    "best music experience on television"
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:10:52 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:11:09 PM
    Cook: Apple Arcade is also going to look amazing on the Apple TV 4K this fall. 
    ... We're extending support to the two best and most popular game controllers available -- the Xbox One S, and the PlayStation 4.
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:11:15 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:11:18 PM
    Xbox One S and PlayStation controller support for Apple TV games? Huh. Whoa.
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 5:11:22 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 5:11:52 PM
    Cook: Screensavers: This year, we're going under the sea. Oh, it's awesome.
    That's the new TVOS, more personal and more entertaining than ever.
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:12:00 PM
    (if controller support includes rumble and analog and all that...that's cool)

    Apple Arcade looks really interesting -- not so much because it's yet another subscription game service, but because it promises a highly curated experience. Discoverability is the key issue for any game platform, I'd consider tossing someone a few bucks a month to hand-pick actual good (and exclusive) content.
  • Scott Stein 6/3/2019 5:12:06 PM
    Apple Watch time!
