    Apple WWDC 2024 Keynote Recap

    Photo of the 13-inch iPad Pro in Space Black

    Today Apple held its World Wide Developer Conference, or WWDC, keynote. The WWDC keynote is a way of Apple to highlight the features that will be coming to its platforms overs the next year. This year keynote is a big one with features that were highlighted for all of Apple’s platforms. I will highlight what I think are the biggest announcements.


    Vision Pro

    The Apple Vision Pro is Apple’s latest platform and while it has only been around for four months, there are some good updates coming. First, for those who use a Mac with their Apple Vision Pro you will be able to use a display that will be like having two 4K monitors side-by-side. This is great so you can have even more screen real estate.

    For Photos, you will be able to use machine learning to make any photo a Spatial Photo, so you can view it with Apple Vision Pro.

    The Apple Vision Pro is also coming to new regions both later this month and also in July.


    Home Screen

    Our devices are super personalized and we often use our home screen to reflect that. Now, you can do even more customization. You can customize your home screen to place icons where you would like them. This works well for images that may normally be covered by icons. Just like you re-arrange the icons, and you can place them wherever you would like.

    Locking Apps

    Some apps can contain some sensitive data, like photos or a journal app. There may be those times when you want to protect this data. You can now lock apps behind Face ID. This means that you can use require Face ID to open up an app.

    Hiding Apps

    There may be apps that you do not want others to see when you hand them your phone. You can now hide apps and these will be put into a "Hidden Apps" folder in the App Library, and they will be locked behind Face ID, just like other apps.

    Icon Tint

    There are those of us who like to have complete color coordination between our Home Screen and our icons, but icons come in a variety of colors. You can work around this by creating a shortcut that opens up the app, but this can be tedious. There is a new option for customizing the tint color of icons. This tint color applies to all icons, but you can select any color you want.

    Control Center

    The Control Center also allows you to organize, resize, and organize the icons as you see fit. You can even have groups of controls that make sense for you. Developers will be able to add additional control center items for you as well.


    Contacts

    A couple years ago Apple added a new way to limit which photos that an app could see. Now, you can do the same with Contacts. Instead of allowing an app full access, you can choose which contacts an app will have access to. This is a great addition for privacy.


    Passwords

    There is now a new Passwords app that works across Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Vision Pro, and even on Windows. This will allow you to store your passwords, one-time codes, passkeys, Wi-Fi, shared passwords, and Sign-In with Apple.


    Messages

    Messages gets some new features like custom Tapbacks, so you can now add emoji inline or as a tapback. Beyond this, you can use the new Genmoji feature to generate your own custom emoji-looking items to get the right images for the situation.

    Sometimes all you need to do is add some emphasis to text. This can also be done through the new "text effects". These will allow you to add bold, italics, underline, or strike through some text. Beyond this, you can add some effects including:

    • Big
    • Small
    • Shake
    • Nod
    • Explode
    • Ripple
    • Bloom
    • Jitter

    Here is a photo of some of them. When you preview them, they will show a preview of what they will look like.


    TV

    The AppleTV app is getting a new feature called "Insights". This is where you will be able to see other things that an actor or actress has been in as well as identify a song. You will then be able to add the song to an Apple Music playlist. If you use your iPhone as a remote while watching TV with others, you will also be able to get Insights.

    Another feature is Enhance Dialog for TV speakers and speakers, this can be super helpful so you can hear what is being said. Subtitles will also get some tweaks, where they will automatically come up if you mute the audio or jump back in time.


    Calculator

    There is now a calculator on the iPad and it includes a feature called "Math Notes". Math Notes allows you to write out expressions with the Apple Pencil and calculator will compute the answer once you put an equals sign in the equation. If you need to add a column of numbers, this can be done as well by putting a line under all of the numbers to be added.

    You will also be able to add graphs and update values in real-time with variables. Math Notes are not limited to just the calculator app. You can also use them in the Notes app.


    macOS

    macOS is the oldest and most mature of Apple’s operating systems, but it also seems some new features, like the aforementioned Passwords app. There are two iPhone-related features coming, mirroring and mirroring and notifications.

    iPhone Mirroring

    There may be instances when you would might want to be able to see what is happening on your iPhone while you are using your Mac. This can be particularly true if your iPhone is charging in another room. Now, you will be able to actually use your iPhone while it is elsewhere. You are able to interact with it by swiping and clicking, just as if you were using the iPhone.

    When you do you your iPhone via mirroring, it will remain locked, so nobody else will be able to see what you are doing.

    iPhone Notifications

    Much like being able to add widgets from your iPhone to your Mac, you will be able to get iPhone notifications right on your Mac. Along with this, you can interact with them and they should even be able to open up via iPhone mirroring.


    Mail

    Mail is also getting some updates, including categorizations. This is done on device and emails will be put into one of a few categories:

    • Primary - Most important
    • Transactions - Receipts
    • Updates - Newsletters
    • Promotions - Marketing/Sales

    This is a nice update as well. There is another thing coming to mail, Writing Tools.

    Writing Tools will allow you to spell check, proof-read, and rewrite an email. It will not be limited Mail, but can also be found in Keynote. Pages, Notes, and even third-party apps.


    Apple Intelligence

    One of the big items highlighted is Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence will allow you to create images, rework text, and even use Siri to perform actions and find your own data. Apple could have just integrated existing Artificial Intelligence, but they have decided to go above and beyond with a new feature called Apple Intelligence.

    Note summarization using Apple Intelligence

    Apple Intelligence is an initiative that takes Artificial intelligence and expands upon it to make sure that your information stays private. This is done through a combination of on-device and cloud infrastructure. A vast majority of the data will be on device, but for tasks that require more resources, there is the cloud portion.

    But not just any cloud. Apple has dubbed their solution Private Cloud Compute. PrivatE Cloud Compute is built on Apple Silicon and uses many of the features built into the system. One of the features of this is that there is no data persistence, so your private data is only available to that server for that one request, before the data is wiped from the server.

    Apple Intelligence provides access to your data so you can perform actions like "Find photos of Suzy in a Pink dress" and it knows enough context to be able to find what you are looking for.

    Image Generation

    One of the more common uses of current artificial intelligence is to generate images. You can do this on iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia as well. You will be able to create images to send to others based upon a template, and a few limited styles. Beyond this, you will be able to write out what you are looking for and it will perform a search.

    Being able to use your own data is great, but sometimes you need access to general world knowledge. Apple has a solution with that as well.


    ChatGPT

    Apple is partnering with Open AI and to use their ChatGPT 4o model to allow you to ask Siri general knowledge. The request will be sent and it will end up responding. If an app needs to use your personal data, you will need to confirm that you want to send the data to ChatGPT before it sent. This way, you are always able to decide to not send the data.

    Again, these features will be coming later in the year.


    Closing Thoughts

    All of the features outlined above should be coming over the next year. Some will be released this fall, while others will be later. There are a number of great features, like Home Screen customization, new text effects in Messages. The new Passwords app will make it easier to manage all of your passwords, and related information in a single location.

    Artificial Intelligence is a big topic with a slew of features planned including Writing Tools, mail organization, and general ChatGPT features through Siri and throughout Apple's operating systems.

    You can see previews for macOS Sequoia, iOS 18, and iPadOS 18.

    My Apple WWDC 2024 Wish List

    Apple Logo stylized with blue, purple, and orange outline with the title text of

    Next week is Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference 2024, also known as WWDC. WWDC is where Apple shows off what they expect to release over the course of the year. I thought I would provide a list of what I hope to see from Apple for the year, but before that, let us look at a topic is prevalent in tech, Artificial Intelligence, also known as "AI".


    Artificial Intelligence

    I have issues with the term "Artificial Intelligence". My main issue is that it is merely a marketing term used because it sounds "futuristic", and that there is no actual intelligence in anything that has been released yet. I would much prefer that it be computer "Computer Intelligence", or something similar. I would prefer this term because it would actually be correct. This is the "intelligence" that a computer has. I could go on, but that is enough of a rant on the subject. I will use the term "AI", because that is what everybody else uses.

    I suspect that a big push with Apple’s operating systems will be full of AI features to help users. This could be something like removing a background, or object, from a photo, to having Siri summarize a a conversation, or other similar functions.

    What I would really like is for there to be a way to take all of my writing, from my blog posts to my books, and throw that into a Large Language Model, or LLM, and then be able to easily look up things. As an example, while writing this article I needed to look up a couple of specific things that I know I have written about in the past in one of my books. Having a means of looking up all of that information would be fantastic.

    I am not sure how Apple will approach AI throughout all of its products, but I do suspect it will be shown off and quite prevalent in the keynote. Let us look at each various platforms and what I would like to see, starting with tvOS.


    tvOS

    The Apple TV is powered by tvOS. tvOS is an offshoot of iOS. Its primary purpose is to allow you to watch media. There are other actions you can perform, like

    My biggest request is improved AirPlay from a Mac. I was mirroring my MacBook Pro to a 3rd generation Apple TV 4K, the latest version, and I kept getting random screen freezes, not on the MacBook Pro, but on the Apple TV. The screen on the MacBook Pro kept going but the video on the Apple TV just stopped.

    It is not like I have a slow Wi-Fi network and the devices were not more than 6 feet apart, with the Wi-Fi access point in the same room. If it happened just once or twice, I would just chalk It up to a one-time bug, but it was happened a lot, so it definitely is not that.

    One feature that might be good would be a way of being able to easily see where a particular actor or actress has appeared based upon the current scene. This would be similar to Amazon’s X-Ray, but could even hand off to an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to provide the information.


    HomePods

    The HomePod is one of the least updated devices and there have been no major changes to the software. What I would like to see is the ability to have more than two HomePods in a stereo pair. In particular, I would like to be able to mix and match HomePod types, like full-sized HomePods with HomePod minis. Along with this, it would be nice to have more than 2 items in a stereo pair.

    On the topic of stereo pairs. I would love the ability to not have the stereo pair use private address. Every time that I need to reboot my Apple TV it will create a new address, using up yet another IP address on my home network. It would be great to be able to change this in the Home App. On that subject.


    HomeKit and Home app

    HomeKit works well for things like smart bulbs, In order for things to be able to connect, they need a Home Hub. A Home Hub can be things like an Apple TV, or even a HomePod. I would love the ability to decide that an Apple TV should not be a Home Hub. I have an original Apple TV HD that I absolutely do not want as a HomeHub, yet I have no option to opt it out of being a Home Hub. If you only have two Home Hubs, I can see not opting one out, but I have 8 Home Hubs (3 Apple TVs and 5 HomePods), so it is not a problem for me.

    While that is a wish item, there is a bug with the Home App that does need to be addressed. This issue is with the Lock Screen widget showing the current temperature. I have 5 HomePods, yet from time to time the Lock Screen widget will show just not show my indoor temperature. This makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever.


    macOS

    macOS is the most mature of Apple’s operating systems and because of that all of the low hanging fruit has been tackled. There is one big thing that Apple could do, release a dedicated "Passwords" app.

    For the longest time Apple has had an app called "Keychain". Keychain is used to store all of your usernames, passwords, private keys, security certificates, and just about any other security-related item. In 2021 with the release of macOS Monterey (macOS 12), Apple added a new "Passwords" preference to the Settings app. This meant that you could manage all of your stored passwords, and passkeys, right from within Settings, instead of just needing to use Safari.

    A dedicated passwords app is something that users have been requesting since the integration of passwords into System preferences. I would love to see an app that can manage everything, including arbitrary data, like PDFs, or even SSH keys, so that we can securely store, and synchronize, all of our data. Combine this with the Shared Passwords groups, this could be a powerful app for sharing all sorts of data that needs to be secure.

    Honestly, even if the app only does passwords, passkeys, and ssh keys, that would be fantastic. Obviously, there would need to be an API for accessing the SSH keys, but it would be great to have.


    iOS

    There are rumors that iOS will be getting the ability to place app icons wherever they would like. I would expect that this is likely to come to iOS. I would guess that the icons could be placed anywhere, but within a grid. This would be similar to how widgets work on macOS, where it will snap to a grid. However, unlike macOS, I do not think that iOS will be allowed to place icons anywhere. One other feature that I would like to see is additional options for widgets. Sometimes a 2 x 2 widget is just too big. I would like to see a 1 x 2 rectangle. It would also be nice to be able to have other rectangle sizes as well.

    Ability to clear documents and data for an app without needing to delete it. I don’t care if there are two confirmations required. I’d like to be able to clear app data. Furthermore, I would absolutely love the ability to limit the amount of data that an app can use. As an example. IG and Threads each use over 5GB on my phone. I’d love to be able to limit this.


    iPadOS

    iPadOS sits in the middle between iOS and macOS. It uses iOS as a base, but it attempts to be like macOS, yet it is not nearly as powerful as macOS, at least for advanced uses. Besides this, it seems like iPadOS is an afterthought for Apple. For instance, iPadOS seems to get features after iOS, instead of at the same time.

    The latest iPad Pro now has the most advanced processor that Apple has yet released, and yet the software does not match the power of the processor. I had an occasion to use a 3rd generation iPad Pro again recently. There is nothing that the 7th Generation can do that is not possible on 3rd generation iPad Pro. There are some features, like Apple Pencil Hover that are on the 6th and 7th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but there is nothing that jumps out at the moment.

    I suspect that the arbitrary rearranging of the iPhone home screen will come to fruition, but I also suspect that we won’t see it on the iPad until next year.


    Bluetooth

    One of the more annoying things that I have experienced lately is issues with bluetooth across all of Apple’s products. Frequently, my mouse will just be disconnected. When this happens I have to turn off my Magic Mouse and turn it back on again. Sometimes, but less often, the same happens with the Magic Keyboard.

    Another example is with my 2nd generation AirPods. Almost 1/3 of the time one of the AirPods will just either not connect, or it will connect, but no sound will come out. Sometimes I can put the offending AirPod back in its case, wait a couple of seconds, and then put it back in my ear and that will work. Other times, I need to take both AirPods and put them back in the case, close the top, wait a few seconds, and then they both work.

    I also experience a similar thing with my Beats Studio Pros. Just randomly, they will randomly disconnect in the middle of listening to something. Sometimes, they will reconnect. Other times they will not.

    The last Bluetooth related issue that I have experienced lately is with my new 7th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and the Apple Pencil Pro. Sometimes, inexplicably, the Apple Pencil Pro will refuse to work with the iPad. This is usually when I remove the Apple Pencil Pro from the iPad, and it just will not work. I can try toggling Bluetooth off and on again, but that does not do anything. The only fix is completely reboot the iPad Pro. I could completely understand if the Apple Pencil Pro was low on charge, but since it is connected to the iPad Pro, it is always charging.

    Apple has created all of the devices, I would expect them to work together. It certainly breaks the "seamless" experience that Apple touts.


    Closing Thoughts

    Although these are what I would like to see, I do not think most of it will be something that we end up getting. Apple’s WWDC 2024 is next week, with the keynote streaming at 10:00am Pacific Time. You can stream it on Apple’s events site, or even on YouTube. I will try to have a recap of what is announced sometime Monday, or Tuesday.
