Tech-giant Apple lived up to its hype with an string of announcements in the much-awaited annual WWDC on Monday.
AirPods can now jump between your Apple devices. If you pick up your iPad and put down the iPhone, it'll enable on the iPad automatically. Same applies for Mac.
Apple Watch can now track how you wash your hands, with a haptic countdown mechanism. MacOS' next big edition is macOS Big Sur. Apple is switching to the Apple Silicon, its own processor. CarPlay can now work as car keys with new iPhones and NFC.
But perhaps what got social media talking the most was Apple's new and enhanced operating system for its iPhones, the iOS 14. Features such as home screen widgets and picture-in-picture support especially got the loudest cheer on Twitter. These features incidentally have been native to Android phones, something the users didn't shy away from reminding their rival iOS counterparts.
Lots of updates in iOS 14 seem designed to close gap on features already on Android smartphones, inc picture-in-picture support, widgets on home screen and in-line responses to message threads. #WWDC20 pic.twitter.com/oXwPJ3zwC5— Ben Wood (@benwood) June 22, 2020
