Apple will soon be holding its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. Commonly referred to as WWDC, this is where developers from around the globe will gather to participate in different sessions and labs, learning more about development and the many tools at their disposal. To kick things off, Apple will be holding its WWDC 2022 keynote, where it will likely reveal new services and products. Let’s see how you can watch for yourself.

Apple’s WWDC 2022 keynote will take place today, June 6, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. The presentation will be streamed on Apple’s website as well as the company’s YouTube channel. Apple typically doesn’t allow you to scrub back in their livestreams, so you’ll want to be there in time to catch it all. After its conclusion, the full keynote is expected to be available as a VOD in the same places it was streamed.

As for what to expect from the WWDC 2022 keynote, Apple is strongly expected to reveal iOS 16. Following past patterns, all signs point to the latest iteration of the popular operating software being announced today. As far as what new features iOS 16 will have, we’ll have to wait and see. There are also rumors swirling that Apple could be announcing some new hardware products and accessories during the keynote.

        It’s not “new” in the traditional sense. It’s a years in the making effort by the industry to solve the problems with Bluetooth and zwave and zigbee and wifi. Zwave were idiots and are gonna be dead in the water now, zigbee is now thread and is the future for low powered devices, wifi will be used for high throughout, Bluetooth used for device setup only, and matter ties it all together. Everyone important has signed on and is fully bought in. No one will be making zwave or zigbee devices anymore. I get the standards joke, but this one is actually not just some idiot company introducing a new standard, it’s the proper way to move smart home devices forward.

        if you need to ask why there's a macbook pro 13, the keynote gives you the answer: it's the 2nd best selling notebook computer in their lineup.

        Not having a macbook pro 13 would be leaving money on the table.

        Money is what apple responds to.

        This is how you tell me you haven’t used an Apple Silicon device without telling me you haven’t used an Apple Silicon device.

        There are several contributing factors that make 8GB sufficient for an base level Mac.

        Unified architecture means all the RAM is GPU ram, so GPU data doesn’t have to be stored and copied from system RAM to GPU ram meaning an overall lighter memory footprint in general.
        The SSDs are extremely fast so even if swapping does occur, it’s barely noticeable at all when there are cache misses and the system has to go to swap to retrieve data.
        Most people don’t use their computers how you think they probably do and they’re probably only using one or two applications at a time.

        I spent months using an M1 8GB MBA and I was able to do active development on it with an IDE, simulator, browser with tons of tabs open, music, and so on and so forth, and there was barely a perceptible difference when it needed to hit swap for stuff. Someone who’s not an enthusiast wouldn’t have even noticed. On a day to day basis when I wasn’t doing active development and just using it for consumption - everything fit in memory and there was hardly ever anything in swap at all.

        • reply
          June 6, 2022 1:16 PM

          So you're saying I could have got away with only 8GB. I could saved an extra $250. Great. But that's kind of missing the point, but the response is typical.

          • reply
            June 6, 2022 1:23 PM

            It’s $200 to go from 8GB to 16GB. Same as it was with M1. It’s $100 on an XPS 13 to go from 8GB to 16GB but the XPS isn’t using GDDR. The base XPS comes with 8GB.
            Surface Pro RAM increases are similarly priced.

          So, the MBA M1 hit all your needs? Sounds great, my daughter has one and I am a bit envious. Her battery lasts forever it seems while my MSI laptop, maybe gets me 4 hours run time. Her air is silent, where mines sounds like a jet engine taking off from time to time.

          Curious, did you move over to the Mac Book Pro or another device? And if so, what was the reasoning. I want to offload my laptop to my son who will need something as he starts some entry level college courses during his HS senior year. The school chromebooks are garbage. I guess what I am asking is, should I just save a few hundred and get the M1 Air get the M2? I mostly do educational stuff with mine, going to school again is the whole reason I bought the laptop. Still teaching myself python and Java at this point while busting out low hanging fruit in college courses. What say you?

          • reply
            June 6, 2022 5:37 PM

            I did move over to the MBP only because I got the MBA as a gift so I felt alright giving the MBA to my wife. I wanted the 120hz display and the extra RAM is I guess nice so I don’t swap as often when doing actual “work” just to preserve the life of the SSD (which probably isn’t an issue, really)

            The battery is amazing on both but I think slightly better on the MBA.

            Anyone coming from an Intel laptop is gonna be super happy with any of the options. If you really want to eek out all the life out of it you can as a somewhat enthusiast, go with M2 and 16GB but for most people M1 or M2 with 8GB would be totally fine. I don’t think you’d be disappointed no matter what way you went.

              June 6, 2022 5:49 PM

              I was looking at the M2 with 8GB. Swapping has me only slightly worried. This will be my first dive into OSX. I’m not sure how 8GB unified will work in practice.

              I tend to have a lot of things open. From school work, actual work, video or music on a second monitor, browsing, etc etc but none of that seems like it would use up the 8GB. Even now, looking at what Inhave going on with my laptop I’m sitting at around 12GB in use of 16, but I’m also playing a Lego game, something I don’t really ever do on my laptop.

And the Resident Evil - I thought it was a new game specifically for Mac (a Resident Evil exclusive for Mac Apple Silicon would be awesome!!!) but it was just the Giant Lady Resident Evil game released in 2021.

      Anyone who really wanted to play these games would have it on PS / PC , etc...

      Apple needs to get exclusives if they want to get any inroad into the gaming market.

        I don’t think they need exclusives, gaming is big on iOS already and the computers now share the same architecture. But nobody who buys an Apple computer has gaming in their minds though.

          And a big part of the reason nobody has gaming in mind when they buy an Apple computer is that Apple has pretty consistently turned their nose up at gaming. Every so often they'll do some showcase that includes a few games, then it's just crickets from them when it's time to provide ongoing support for game development.

            Yup, and they had a beef with nvidia as well so they stopped shipping discrete GPUs from them for years. It’s clearly not their priority.

            well, one good thing is that they're getting the NMS of modern day (hopefully) where they fixed a bunch of stuff. It would be Really BadTM if they took the original version of NMS and shipped that instead of the latest patch.

        The significance is not that they got old games running on new Macs (I can do that), it's that they're getting game developers on board and bringing examples of visually complex games running on Metal 3.

        No one's going to buy a Mac for an exclusive game, not right now anyway. And if they did get an exclusive game, gamers would just piss and moan about it. If they got Valve to unveil Half-Life 3 as an Apple Silicon exclusive, gamers would just go to Gabe's office and protest. They've done that for less.

        Remember when Bill Gates made a videotaped speech at an Apple event hosted by Steve Jobs and said Microsoft was committed to keeping MS Office on the Mac and was investing $150M in Apple? One of the things I've learned in recent years is that the perception that Microsoft saved Apple with that $150M is wrong. Apple wasn't about to go broke, they had over a billion dollars in the bank. What they didn't have was the confidence of developers or users. Microsoft throwing its weight behind Apple and the Mac was huge. The $150M itself wasn't nearly as important as the fact that it was the biggest software company on the planet committing to the Mac.

        That's kinda how I see the gaming portion of today's keynote. Yes a 2016 game and a 2021 sequel are not big news in and of themselves, it's that they exist at all that's significant. A lot of things would need to happen to make the Mac a significant gaming platform but the single biggest one would be for Apple to take it seriously and invest money in it. They didn't just go ask Capcom to port RE8 and they said "yeah sure we'll spend the time and effort to learn your proprietary API to put our game on a system where people don't buy games", Apple spent money on this and likely flew teams of engineers to them and Hello Games and whoever does the GRID franchise and spent the time to do it.

        Now I know "no really this time we mean it" is basically Lucy holding the football but I think a number of things would need to happen to make the Mac a good gaming platform and this was a sign that they're taking the first steps in the most significant part of that.

          Apple’s commitment to gaming is the same as Google’s commitment to messaging services.

            Only if Apple made a dozen or so half-assed gaming platforms from different internal teams and randomly killed them off.

            Apple's commitment to gaming is more like Google's commitment to privacy - lots of talk and promises, not so much on the follow through.

          Your last line says it all. I just don't believe Apple when it comes to gaming.

          They've done the stick and carrot for PC game devs before only to always leave them in the lurch, I don't think anyone is convinced they're ever playing the long game there

      I am getting genuinely angry at their Apple Watch roadmap re: faces. All those fucking stupid faces they come out with all the time while only allowing a bare minimum of customization for the actual useful faces they have.
      I like my apple watch but I fucking hate every face on it, and every so often I would get in there and try once more to force it into something I like and there's just no way to. It's maddening.
      And then today they shows that fucking stupid one with little number people jumping or whatever. I have never seen anyone running one of those stupid novelty faces after a week.

        heres what i want to see from Apple's legendary engineering prowess with regards to the apple watch...

        - advanced biometrics
        - battery life worth a shit

        the first is supposedly in flight (but keeps getting delayed), havent heard a peep about the latter.

            Wife gets about that. I just don’t want a watch I have to take off every night and put back on every morning. Becomes even more problematic if you want to leverage it for the health monitoring during sleep etc.

              Yeah, makes sense.

              Prior to launch of the first model there was a lot of talk about whether or not the battery would make it through a whole day or not. Turned out to be largely unfounded of a concern, plus they figured out battery tricks via software, but I guess since I put my phone on a charger every night it doesn’t bother me to put my watch on a charger every night either.

              I quickly found I don't want to sleep with an Apple Watch on. It's just too bulky.

              I charge mine while I shower (about 20 minutes give or take) and that’s enough to wear it all the time with an extra “top up” charge for 30 min or so every few days before bed. It’s really not an issue I even think about much any more.

            A Fitbit lasts a week and had all the sleep tracking they are only now beginning to add and more for years. A day battery life for a watch would have been laughable a few years ago

              Yeah but a Fitbit doesn’t have all the features an Apple Watch has.

              It does however have lookitzpancakes in their commercials.

              Yea exactly. I mean obviously they are not really comparable but I really want them to get to at least a few days of use before needing charging.
