Difference between an iPhone and an actual real life proper movie camera. Never seen such a direct comparison before https://t.co/7E4Dt8db6k
Just in case you wanted another iOS 11 spoiler (this is an option in the Feedback app when filing a bug) /via @charavel https://t.co/mQVlJjZbb4
The vertical carousel style for watchOS probably works well to optimize information density, but wtf is up with those gradient backgrounds.
Maybe have the keynote last half an hour longer instead of making everyone rush through everything? No?
apple is clearly listening to the people moaning about performance, and it’s meeting them in the middle, sorta.
I wanted to post a 🤦🏻♂️ every time it was warranted (i.e. every 30 seconds) but “Duplicate status.”
Ooh I wanna know what privacy compromises Apple made to finally have iMessage conversations sync properly between devices.
This means iCloud storage is now encrypted.
iMac Pro looks awesome. But it is NOT the new Mac Pro. New Mac Pros are still in the works for next year.
Turns out the past of computing had a lot of good ideas.
Damn, iOS 11 on iPad Pro looks fantastic but I still want to enjoy it on an 8-inch iPad with Pencil and I’m never gonna get that 😢
Apple is making the perhaps very smart assumption that stellar audio and subpar AI trumps subpar audio and semi-OK AI.
Best part about iOS 11 screenshot behavior (tiny window + Markup) - is you can say “Done” then discard after sharing. No need to save!
I haven’t opened one of my iOS projects in (only!) a year, and this is what I’m greeted with. Thanks, Swift. https://t.co/ISD4m31qlw
I asked ARKit for the height of my table. It was off by 3cm. 3.8% error. From a lousy video camera. This thing is great.
On the iOS 11 home screen:
Short tap = open
Medium tap = popover menu
Medium hold = begin drag
Long hold = enter rearrange mode
Apple Music’s Planet of the Apps’ first company pitch was an app that ARKit sherlock’d the day before.
Good representation of app world.
Only just realized that omg I can finally enable iMessage on my Mac, too, without losing messages — and that means no more FB Messenger \o/
There’s also a TableViewReorderingUsesDragAndDrop pref key for UIKit that does away with the legacy reordering behavior and uses DnD instead https://t.co/kASkY4acro
Incredible. Within first 10 minutes of Uber all-hands meeting today, a board member makes a sexist joke. https://t.co/iurWrXTOXw https://t.co/ngQW6uS5J3
Increasingly uncomfortable with Facebook doing this. I live 6 miles away. Feels like they’re adding to people’s stress to drive engagement. https://t.co/6UxZ6iJDTZ
Twitter: The border-radius will increase until morale improves.
Tim Cook: I run Apple & hit the gym @ 4am to keep my body in peak condition
Me: I built an app &the pressure made me stress-eat 5000 cookies
The state of AI understanding: someone can give a ‘Wizard of Oz’ demo with the curtain open and people still think they’re seeing magic
Surprising WWDC labs takeaway:
Many developers eschew the trackpad “natural scrolling” direction setting 😂
I’ve never understood modern tech’s tendency towards stupid and insanely loud beeping you can’t turn off. (Fine if you can.) https://t.co/GoDO1Dbtw9
I thought APFS upgrade wouldn’t be default — maybe it is only for beta testers?
Providing support for an app that sold for all of three months until it saturated its very niche market is the worst.
If you need a self-imposed Twitter break, just tell a nazi to go fuck themselves, the app takes care of the rest for 12 hours.
Japanese Robot Sumo.
I was aware of it, but had no idea it moved so fast.
None of this footage has been sped up.
Apple’s approach to getting Photoshop on iPad was ‘wait 7 years for an indie to recreate Photoshop from scratch’. Worked—not very scalable
Spoiler: it uses material from 4dviews.com
I can’t imagine how it could be a hard problem for Finder to remember the right view settings for each folder.
It got proposed, built, and shut down in the time it’s taken Hyperloop to build a test tunnel in a desert.
Seeing the hole punched in this Apple Pencil Case makes me wonder why the heck Apple didn’t do that themselves https://t.co/4rWkJBLdIs
Here are two iPhone prototypes. We called them Wallabies. I used these devices to make the software keyboard. https://t.co/qbofBL3RUt
Something I haven’t seen anyone using an original iPhone mention: when you load the YouTube app, it has one video to stream. https://t.co/dDDwlO6qWu
