Apple WWDC 2019 Key Announcements: New iPadOS, iOS 13, Standalone Watch Apps and More
Apple WWDC 2019 keynote is among one of the most anticipated developer conferences in the world, and is set to hit the stage rolling for Apple's next year of software innovation from the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose, California. Despite having faced increasing criticism (even from the company's core fan base) over the slow pace of advancement and innovation, WWDC is still one of the most followed developer conferences, and given Apple's might and prowess in both hardware and software, will be one that significantly impacts our technology for the next year.

At WWDC 2019, Apple is slated to introduce us to iOS 13. The Dark Mode is expected to be one of the biggest consumer highlights for this year's iOS, which is also expected to improve lifestyle features such as Screen Time, Health, Home, CarPlay and more. Apple is also set to roll out key improvements to how macOS apps are developed, and the new update is much anticipated to make it easier for developers to port iPad apps to macOS. This should also be seen as one of the first steps towards Mac-iPad cross-segmenting, and may be registered as one of the most important updates to macOS in recent time. Also expected at the conference are watchOS 6, tvOS 13 and more.

Live demo of Minecraft on stage. The entire arena sounds very quiet.

On the user end, here's how the new AR core is going to help.

Jun 04, 2019 00:31 (IST)

We also have the new ARKit, with hyper-realistic integration of visuals and noise.

...and now, users rejoice.

Developers, rejoice.

You can now use an iPad as a secondary display, and the Apple Pencil for the input device of the secondary touch display of your portable workstation. This, too, is a niche use case. But, it can be very useful.

macOS Catalina gets 4K HDR, Dolby Vision+Atmos playback support. iTunes is broken down into Music, Podcast and News.

Jun 04, 2019 00:17 (IST)

Okay, iTunes is gone.

Jun 04, 2019 00:16 (IST)

We're talking about iTunes, and it's fun to know that Apple could afford a chuckle about it.

Jun 04, 2019 00:15 (IST)

And now, say hello to the macOS Catalina.

Jun 04, 2019 00:14 (IST)

Jun 04, 2019 00:13 (IST)

The new Mac Pro costs $5,999 in its base variant.

Jun 04, 2019 00:11 (IST)

Here's a revision of the Pro Display XDR.

Jun 04, 2019 00:11 (IST)

We are actually talking separately about the Mac Pro's display stand.

Jun 04, 2019 00:10 (IST)

It gets better. "We've gone beyond high dynamic range with this one. This is Extreme Dynamic Range, or XDR."

Jun 04, 2019 00:09 (IST)

"The backlight system is like no other," says Apple. It has 1,000 nits of indefinite time brightness, and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Okay, then.

Jun 04, 2019 00:07 (IST)

Meet the new Mac Pro display. "It's extraordinary," says Apple. Anti-reflecting coating with a nano-texture glass at the front. 32-inch LCD panel, 280 pixels per inch, 6K Retina.

Jun 04, 2019 00:02 (IST)

Here's a 100-piece orchestra running live on the Mac Pro. Because, why not?

Jun 03, 2019 23:59 (IST)

...and then check it out again. I really want to know how expensive (or affordable?) this will be.

Jun 03, 2019 23:59 (IST)

Check out the new Mac Pro.

Jun 03, 2019 23:57 (IST)
