    Basically every app has been redesigned. So we're getting a demo of it live.

    Federighi unlocks the phone and the icons float down -- not all at once. He fires up Weather, and we see some moving clouds on the screen. Looks a bit like Yahoo's recent Weather app revmap.

    It changes dynamically based on what place you're looking at. You can also pinch down, and you get an overview of your cities.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:27:37 PM
    Onto calendar. Can swipe from day to day. Just tons of white everywhere.

  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:35:26 PM
    Keeping the interface minimal bleeds the line between browser and app.

  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:35:50 PM
    Federighi shows us some simple gestures to hop back and forth between pages, as well as the search. Now included: shared links from social places.

    No more 8 tab limit on tabs, says. Federighi hops through quite a few. These can also get ditched with a gesture. That's it for the Safari demo. Onto Control center.

    Control Center: nice that it's an across-the-board connection system for AirPlay and music/settings. Clean remote-like feel.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:37:40 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:37:48 PM
    Federighi does a quick demo, turning on the flashlight, starting some music, hopping to another app and readjusting those same dials without having to start another app.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:38:27 PM
    "There's much much more," Federighi teases, including AirDrop, Apple's file sharing service.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:38:34 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:38:49 PM
    My, those friend circles are interesting.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:39:12 PM
    You can do this right from the share sheet. "You can do this from right where you are, you don't need to walk over and bump your phone," Federighi teases.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:39:25 PM
    Works on iPhone 5, iPad 4th gen, iPad mini
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:39:38 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:39:44 PM
    So, I'm curious how across-the-board AirDrop will be. Could be amazing for events like these.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:39:47 PM
    New camera stuff: live photo filters.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:40:40 PM
    Photos app's been completely revamped to coincide with this. Gone is the endless list of shots. Photos now get broken up into "moments," much like what the company's been doing in iPhoto for years.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:41:38 PM
    Can see shots on based where they are via geotagging. All these are grouped together into a big collection.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:42:01 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:42:13 PM
    Can keep scaling out and see all the photos you've taken by year, which gets some oohs and awws. This mode also shows you some of the interesting locations you were at.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:42:14 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:57:07 PM
    That's a wrap for iOS 7
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:57:11 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:57:18 PM
    iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad Mini, 5th-gen Touch can get iOS 7.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:57:43 PM
    Cook back on stage, presumably to take us home. Going over OS X Mavericks, new MacBook Airs running the Haswell chips, and the sneak peek of the Mac Pro.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:58:17 PM
    Also iWork for iCloud, and iOS 7 "AMazing new features, and a stunning new user interface" and lastly iTunes Radio.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:58:46 PM
    "They're great examples of what Apple does best," Cook says. "I get to work with the most talented and creative people on earth, and it's a joy to serve with them. Thank you."
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:58:53 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:59:18 PM
    "I'd like to close this morning with a reminder. That our goal in Apple is to make amazing products that our customers love. Really great products that enrich people's lives. The words you saw at the beginning of the show are more than just words to us. They're the values we live by."
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:59:44 PM
    "You'll continue to see these reflected in the products we do in the future. We've created an ad to help us express just how deeply we feel about this. And I'd like to share it with you now."
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 7:00:28 PM
    Lady listening to music in the subway, kids learning in the classroom, parent and child playing with a devices, couples taking selfies, and of course -- FaceTiming from the noodle shop.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 7:00:55 PM
    Slow-mo and plucked strings.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 7:00:55 PM
    "This is our signature, and it means everything" with "Designed by Apple in California" in text on the screen.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 7:01:08 PM
    Cook back up now. "I'm really glad you liked that. You'll begin to see it on TV this evening."
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 7:01:29 PM
    "Those words mean a great deal to us, and I hope they do to you as well," Cook says. Signing off.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 7:01:47 PM
