How did we reach the point where civilization would decide to reintroduce, in 2019, hourly audible chimes in wristwatches?
PencilKit is a huge Finally for me. Having consistent UI across apps is gonna make a huge difference to how integrated the Pencil feels.
The fact that Apple’s demonstration of new iPad typing gestures started with an “oops” points to the fundamental limitation of using gestures for everything, not to mention the inherent lack of intuitive behavior. #WWDC19
It’s incredibly weird to finally see Apple introduce actual pro Mac hardware again. I’m having flashbacks to feelings I haven’t had in many, many, many years.
These accessibility improvements are downright wild! ❤️
You could use an iPhone to capture an actor’s facial performance, and now you can do motion capture too, straight from system APIs 🙌
I’m going to make every effort to avoid thinking about whether an equivalent of SwiftUI could just as well have been made with Objective-C or not, and accept that it’s time to switch to Swift. (Ugh.)
Very excited to find out all the things designers will manage to think of that break the assumptions built into SwiftUI!
I’ll probably never be able to afford a Mac Pro — and it’s ugly as sin — but it managed to make me more optimistic about the Mac than I’ve been in years. It even put me in such a good mood that I’m not griping about finally switching to Swift. Funny how halo products work.
Swift UI looks amazing, if you want to do something simple.
However, most declarative UI frameworks rapidly fall down if you want to do anything custom or outside it’s assumptions.
I wonder how SwiftUI will fare if you want to build “Magic Move” style screen to screen transitions [twitter.com]
It was undeniably fun seeing Apple unveil the McLaren of Macs. Fun has been missing in the Mac hardware world for a long time.
This is interesting…
