Today, Apple kicks off WWDC 2019 (Worldwide Developers Conference). At this annual event, apple Dish from various software updates, including the operating system for his star product, the iPhone.
While WWDC 2019 is mainly a place for software, there were also hardware surprises in the store. There have also been some major changes to how Apple users can use iOS applications, some of which also support desktop.
Visit our WWDC 2019 summary below to quickly learn about all the new Apple updates!
WWDC 2019 would not be complete without the launch of a new version of iOS. Today, Apple unveils iOS 13, the latest version of its mobile operating system for the iPhone.
As usual, Apple brings overall performance improvements to iOS, including smaller-sized applications, with faster launches. Program updates will also be smaller, which will be enjoyable for iPhone owners' data plans.
One of the biggest new features of iOS 13 is something that will surely make Android users jealous: A system-wide dark. Apple has shown the dark mode on stage, affecting all system features as well as applications. Fortunately, that Android Q system off wide dark is just a few months away.
Apple has also introduced something that Android users have been using for a long time: swipe SMS. The default iPhone keyboard has now bent the type of gestures that are built-in.
Apple's iOS 13 offering has placed great emphasis on privacy.
One thing that was turned over by the entire keynote address was privacy, and iOS 13 puts a huge emphasis on it. For example, Apple introduces Apple account integration into applications and websites that connect your social account. For example, to sign in to a program quickly, you can use your Twitter account. Now you can use your Apple account to prevent applications from seeing (and possibly abusing) your social data.
Currently, Apple also launches automatically generated fake email accounts. Instead of giving your real email address to a program, you give it an alternative that is automatically transferred to your main account. Each application gets a different address, allowing you to easily sign in or cancel without ever giving your right address.
Finally, iOS 13 will allow users to control location permissions within applications. You can temporarily grant access to a program instead of indefinitely, which will help with privacy. If you choose to give an unrestricted program access indefinitely, iOS will remind you regularly that this will happen if you change your mind.
The Photos program has some new features, including better control of Apple's own Studio Lighting algorithm called Portrait Lighting. There are more photo editing controls than ever, and for the first time there are video editing features in Photo's.
The organization of photo's is also improved, with new flow based on time: days, months and years. In addition, Photo's will use machine learning to clear the "junk" in your photo. These can be duplicates, screen shots or "useless" photos, such as those you receive from receipts. It leaves your view in Photo's of just the content you really care about.
These updates are the most important new features coming to iOS 13, but much more was announced (and even more not announced):
- Messages will automatically enter name and photo information once you have a conversation (if you agree).
- Makeup and accessories are now available in Memoji.
- Memoji stickers are now available in messages or even other third-party apps.
- Siri Shortcuts now have a more powerful standalone app.
- Siri's voice is now completely based on software, not pre-recorded actors' voices that are then pasted.
Apple Maps, HomeKit, Reminders, and other Apple apps are also customized and cut. As far as hardware is concerned, new features come to AirPods – like the audience and immediately respond to text messages – as well as HomePod, such as support for Handoff.
The public beta of iOS 13 will roll out in July and the full version will be in the autumn with the new crop of iPhones.
For the Apple Watch, watchOS gets quite a few updates.
There are now more watch faces than ever, many of which can be completely customized with different colors and complications. The Apple Watch will also visit or vibrate at the hour as you like.
The biggest news about watchOS is probably the integration of the Apple App Store. To move forward, users can browse the App Store directly on the watch and use it to download apps. There are also more programs supported on the watch, including audio books, voice notes and the calculator (which includes a feature that makes it easy to split restaurant accounts).
You can also use many of these apps on your Apple Watch without needing an iPhone, so the Apple Watch can be used by people who don't own the Apple smartphone.
Apple Health will also get many new features, many of which are used to use the data. There is a new sound level alert that will alert you if you are in a place that is hard enough to damage your audience. There is also a new menstrual detection feature in Health both on watchOS and iOS 13.
At WWDC 2019, Apple made one of the biggest changes to iOS that it made in years: it shared iPad software. In future, iPads will not run on iOS, but on iOSOS based on iOS, but only for the iPad.
With iPadOS, Apple's popular computer table becomes more like a laptop than ever before. Safari will now deliver web pages in computer mode, and files will support SMB share, folding within iCloud Drive, and even the ability to explore content from a thumb drive. Safari also gets a download manager, which makes it much more like the desktop version.
iPads will now run on a specific version of iOS called iPad OS.
iPadOS also includes new split screen capabilities, home screen widgets, and multi-touch gestures for copying, pasting and deleting text.
These new features send a bold new message: the iPad is now very different from the iPhone, right up to the device's software. Granted, IOS programs will still be the core of what iPads work, but the differences will be very noticeable.
It's been six years since Apple released a new Mac Pro. With its very controversial "garbage design" design, the only option is for professionals. Fortunately, with the new 2019 version of the Mac Pro, the rubbish bin design is gone and a much more traditional tower design is back.
Granted, it's Apple we're talking about, so the Mac Pro announced at WWDC 2019 doesn't look like anything else on the market. It is almost entirely made of stainless steel and features a grid design that looks like a cheese slicer. Although the aesthetics of this design may be your cup of tea, the design offers functionality as it cools the system better than a closed design.
Along with a garbage cylinder, hello stainless steel cheese grate & # 39; Tower.
You're going to need that cool, because the Mac Pro is going hot. For example, it contains a 1.4kW power supply, and will have a maximum of 12 DIM slots for RAM sticks, a 28-core Intel Xeon processor and eight PCI expansion lists.
Apple also suggests what it calls MPX ports – Mac Pro Extension. It can handle up to two graphics cards that professionals need to provide with all the graphics power they need. And if that's not enough, a Mac Pro can be equipped with two of the systems, which means a total of four graphics cards.
N Baseline Mac Pro starts at $ 5,999 and will be available in the fall.
To connect with the ultra-expensive computer, Apple also announced a 6K screen capable of delivering on a pro-level output:
- 32-inch retina display
- HDR support (using Apple as XDR or Extreme Dynamic Range)
- 1000 nits full screen brightness indefinitely
- 1,000,000: 1 contrast ratio
The show won't be cheap: it starts at $ 4,999 for the show itself. If you want the view to take a stand, it'll be an extra $ 999, which means that & nbsp; a Mac Pro and & Pro's XDR with its stand will be the same starting price.
The most recent version of MacOS is Mojave, and today at WWDC 2019 Apple MacOS revealed Catalina.
The biggest change with Catalina is that dismantling of iTunes. Instead of using iTunes to sync your iPhone or iPod, synchronization happens in Finder. Instead of using iTunes for music, you & # 39; ll use a new one Apple Music app. Instead of using iTunes for podcasts, you use Apple Podcasts, and so on. Apple didn't say much on stage, but it is highly likely that iTunes is no longer.
MacOS Catalina also brings a new feature called Sidecar, which lets you connect an iPad – physically or wirelessly – to a MacBook, iMac or Mac Pro. Doing so will allow you to use the iPad as a second screen or as a drawing tablet.
Probably the biggest news about MacOS is the official launch of Project Catalyst, the long platform which allows developers to create macOS applications from their existing iPad applications. This means developers can develop one team for all three major Apple platforms: iOS, iPad OS and macOS.
Apple also has the ability to control macOS features only with your voice; A new piece of software called Find Me What is a Blend Between Find My iPhone and Find My Friends; and the ability to use Screentime (which is similar Google's digital well-being) on macOS instead of just iOS.
Apple started WWDC 2019 by talking about tvOS on its Apple TV set-top box. The big news of the day for tvOS is the introduction of multi-user support, which allows every family member in a household to get different views and suggestions on Apple TV.
Apple also introduced new Apple Arcade controller support on Apple TV: Microsoft's Xbox One S controller as well as the DualShock 4 controller for PlayStation 4.
Finally, the company also unveiled some new underwater screensavers for Apple TV and gave the audience a sneak peek at a new Apple TV Plus show called "For The All Humanity", Ronald D. Moore, the creator of the Battlestar Galactica reimagining series, shrouded.
