Watch the Apple WWDC 2019 keynote live stream here

Be sure to catch the Apple WWDC 2019 keynote live stream as it airs and we bring you all the exciting news to come of it.

207

It's time for Apple to descend upon us with a fresh slate of new products again, and that means it must be time for this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

The event kicks off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET today on Monday, June 3, and it's going to be a doozy. There's a wide range of possible announcements we could be looking forward to, including the unveiling of iOS 13, new versions of watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as well. There's also the impending death of iTunes as you've no doubt heard about already, which means we'll be looking to see what's next in the cards as we near the end of an era – iTunes has been here with us from the beginning, so it'll be strange to see it going away.

We've got a full rundown of what we might see during the show, so make sure you check out our piece and get prepped ahead of time. As usual, there will likely be more than a few surprises to keep an eye out for, so you'll want to keep your browser locked to Shacknews so you can stay up to date on all the latest happenings.

That means you'll need to check out the official Apple stream with Shacknews open in another tab, naturally, so you can keep up with what's going on. We'll be here reporting on it too, but if you want to watch, head over to Apple's official website for desktop viewing. Also, you can watch via your phone if you're not at the desktop right now.

Whatever happens, we've got you covered, and we'll make sure you know exactly what to expect hen the event kicks off.

              Yeah it sounds crazy but it’s been a pretty consistent runout from reliable places for the last few months. Doubt it will be in the keynote though, too many other things to talk about.

          I'd kill for them allowing you to change "default" apps (e.g. Use google maps forever instead of apple maps. Use a different email client that's not apple mail.) or a sane method of displaying notifications but I've pretty much given up on either of those too

          How much does that thing you guys use cost? This cheapo iPad is $250. I'd pay all the way up to a whopping $300 for what I use this tablet for. Maybe.

          • reply
            June 3, 2019 9:43 AM

            we have $650 Tab S4s but none of this stuff requires a high end tablet, any android tablet will do it. in particular, i don't use anything Samsung-specific like milleh does (with his use of DeX), any cheapo tablet will do fine

            • reply
              June 3, 2019 9:45 AM

              Cheapo Android tablets are slow as fuck, though. I'd want the windowing with dex if I switched over. I have a Shield K1 and it's really slow. Kinda nice to be able to use a mouse but otherwise meh. I imagine it'd be pretty hard to find a comparably quick, supported, and well built Android tablet for the price of this iPad

              • reply
                June 3, 2019 9:49 AM

                you still get windowing without DeX, using the android-native multiwindow support. it supports both split-screen and floating windows. the only thing you really get from DeX is the ability to use an external display as a desktop while at the same time using the tablet as a tablet, or while the tablet screen is off. without DeX you have to use screen mirroring if you plug in a monitor (which is what i do).

                you're not wrong about speed though, i'm hesitant to upgrade to the S5e ($400) because it's slower than the S4. i haven't tried a low-end android tablet myself

          June 3, 2019 10:15 AM

          Why does it need to compete with Disney+? That's not Apple's business. There's nothing compelling or uniquely Apple about them providing the same streaming service as everyone else.

            What? I replied to a post saying the need for a phone is getting really small. I don't think that's even remotely the case yet. The screen on the watch is way too small to get anything more than trivial tasks done.

          it requires your phone. All it does is let you fast forward, rewind and pause from your watch. Only Apple Music allows to stream over LTE without your phone which was dumb.

          They’re calling the iPad version of iOS “iPadOS”

            I sort of assume that the iPad must be selling better than many people think. I don't think it's anywhere near the sales numbers of laptops, but Apple must think the numbers must be high enough to be serious as a major market.

                I recall years ago that the Surface sold $1B in a year. Then someone pointed out that $1B sales of a $1,000 device was 1M units over a year, and that iPad had only sold 12M units in the previous quarter and people were not sure if it had a future (i.e., Apple might kill it off)

            my guess is that they needed to separate the functionality between the devices in a meaningful way on their end, so why not get some marketing and press attention out of it

        Yes, but it's a huge win on the thing, iPad was basically a big iPhone unable to make phone calls for more years than necessary. That screen was being wasted.

        yeah, if you don't use it all the time it can be a mess. But I have found myself being pretty good with it at this point. But there are lots of time that taking out a laptop isn't appropriate for me - like in a mtg with a customer.

            It's also relaying input back to the OS with the Apple Pencil or touch interactions. It also works wirelessly and wired. Apple has control of the entire stack on macOS.

            On Windows, they'd probably have to write some kind of device driver for Windows to just use it as a monitor, that's it. I mean, I guess they could... but why would they do that? They want people to use Macs.

        I mean I may not be looking at this right but I think what you’re referring to is already the situation on the iPhone and it hasn’t given rise to a new kind of scam.

        What it has done is cut down considerably on the number of iPhone thefts because it gets out in the phone theft communities that you shouldn’t bother stealing iPhones because thanks to activation lock they’re worthless on the resale market.

        It's not just this stage thing - it's going to be out in the real world as well with permanent Minecraft buildings. The additional "person inside the game" is the Apple-only part.

                There's a "bridge" adapter by Chamberlain that adds HomeKit compatibility to select garage door models. I am going to get it (or something similar if there is an alternative) now.

                  I have a Chamberlain garage door with an app that lets you open it. The app request responds significantly slower than the actual garage door opener.

                      I have the MyQ system and it works great. I use it both through Homekit and the app. They both respond just fine. Hitting the hardwire button is faster for sure but we are talking like a second difference. The fact that I can open my garage while walking down the stairs makes up for any lag in button presses.

                      I can't speak for Derelict but he may be just describing closing the door. It doesn't close right away it actually beeps and flashes the lights a few times before closing as a safety feature. I think they do that because you could be closing it from miles away.

                        yeah the beeps and flashes sound right but it doesn't do that using the normal hardware openers. It just takes me longer to take my phone out, open the app, then press the open/close button than to just hit the dedicated hardware button. The main reason I got it was so that I could check whether the garage door is open or closed while I'm gone (ie 'shit did I forget to close the garage?' while I drive to work) and for an easy way to give other people temporary access to the house without handing out a permanent password.

                  For the cost of a Raspberry PI and a case you can just do it yourself if your motor has a secondary NO/NC connector. Can even integrate siri, so homekit works with it.

        I did the beta thing with iOS 11 and it was a huge pain in the ass. Lots of basic shit was broken for months and I couldn’t do normal development with it, was stuck using Xcode Beta which you can’t use to submit builds to the App Store. Wound up having to spin up a Parallels VM just to do basic work.

        It’s for people with more devices than I have. Maybe one of them new iPod touches would be good.

            Yeah I forgot to say I went whole hog and did the macOS beta thing too. And watchOS beta. And so even if you submit from the current stable Xcode on the beta OS it doesn’t let you submit from the beta OS. Like, I think it submits fine and then Apple sends you an email saying it didn’t count.

      This bit on Find my iPhone/Mac for offline devices is really neat:

      When it's offline and sleeping, it sends out a secure Bluetooth beacon that can be detected by other Apple devices nearby (even those owned by other people). Can relay location back to the network. Encrypted and secure.

      So one thing that is actually huge for macOS. The operating system is now stored on its own secure read only partition. This is similar to how ios works.

      That means the OS is less vulnerable to tampering and also restoring a device could be as easy as an erase all contents and settings. It’s actually a really smart way to handle OS installs

          Plus hundreds of games that already have controller support.

          It is a start, and vitally important for the future of gaming on iOS and TVos.

          Not sure what purpose it would serve to be negative about this unless you like touch-control games and nothing else.

                It uses some sort of API which is ok on iOS but is private on tvOS so they haven’t been able to put it on the App Store yet but you can push it to your own Apple TV with a developer account (I think the free ones work for tvOS too)

                Could be they’re working to try and work around that API or they’re working with Apple to get it un-privated.

                That CPU doesn't have enough cache. Bumping it to the similar ~24Mb was like $5,600.00 to build via Dell (although it was also clocked slightly higher irc).

                  June 3, 2019 6:14 PM

                  The 24 MB cache model available now is an 18 core. An 8 core model would be nowhere near that price even with the cache bump so just had to go with what’s available on the dell site.

                  Even with the 18 core part it’s $1000 cheaper. lol

        Installed iPadOS on one of my iPads and it is working fine.

        It is funny because I am not seeing any issues that were even listed there, but maybe iOS is having those issues and iPadOS isn't. I do know that the "iCloud music library is turned on by default" is actually the default setting when you install iOS, so they must have not done an upgrade and did a full restore.
