    Federighi says it's also a big year for Swift. He notes that big language changes only come every couple decades. Says 450k apps run on Swift now.
    Now, he's announcing a new "framework" -- SwiftUI. Get ready for some deep in the weeds talk.

    Federighi says SwiftUI is built for Swift using Swift. 
    "It frees you to focus on the functionality of your apps" 
    Also, in XCode, Apple's programming app, said there's now a live demo built in of what the code looks like on the phone.

    Lots of cheers for this new Swift functionality. "This isn't just for building iOS apps -- for the first time ever, we have a native framework for building Watch apps as well," Federighi says.

    I think...we're done! But lots more to come. No Apple Watch watch faces. No iPad trackpad support. But lots of other stuff (and a Mac Pro, for real).

    Cook: "What an incredible morning." "Today, we moved all of our software platforms forward." "All the platforms will be available today. And public seed will be available in July. And all this great software will be available to users in the fall."

    We're also getting an early look at Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR on site, which is nifty.
    "We can't wait to see what you're going to dream up and how you're going to change the world," Cook said. 
    He also added that he appreciated everyone who worked at Apple giving up nights and weekends. "Many of these innovations are years in the making," he said.
