        I hope there's some way to tell which apps require a cable TV subscription other than reading the whole app description. I don't pay for cable TV, so a lot of apps, even if I can sign into them, won't let me play anything. But some apps, such as PBS, don't require a sign-in. And other times, in the past, when I've used ESPN, it'll require me to sign in, but won't check if I'm actually paying for cable.

      i'm just looking at the headlines -- can it detect faces in photos and put the photos into groups by person? automatically i mean, not the bullshit that the osx photos app already does, where it's "automatic" but you have to confirm every single photo individually.

        Supposedly, yes. It looks like it performs similar to Google Photos. We'll need to wait for hands-on impressions before we really know how well it works, though.

          Some decent sources have been suggesting it, and John Gruber even thinks it's going to happen.

          It went hand in hand with the other rumor that Apple was going to make Apple Pay be a thing you could send money through iMessage with, and having iMessage on Android would extend that to more users. Plus it's end-to-end encrypted, which would be a selling point as well.

          And since Apple Music and Move to iOS are on Android, it's no longer unprecedented now that apple would make an android app.

            June 13, 2016 12:38 PM

            I don't know by what logic iMessage ends up on Android but not every other Apple service. I don't know why they'd have resisted this long and bother to do it now (when they now have no chance of getting people off FB/WhatsApp/etc).

            • reply
              June 13, 2016 12:49 PM

              Well it looks like Apple may be willing to put their services on Android if they think it will do them more good than harm. They want a bunch of paying Apple Music customers so they put out an Android version. Not sure how well it worked but Apple Music has about half as much as Spotify's subscriber numbers so that service is doing well.

              If Apple wanted people to be able to send money to each other via Apple Pay, it makes sense that they'd want to extend that to as many possible customers as well. Plus it would still be a better experience for iOS users since the Android folks could get money but not send it.

              If I were to bet money, I'd say this is in the works at Apple but whether it comes out or in the form we're expecting, I don't know. It's been rumored for a while now that an "Xcode for iPad" has been in development in some form or other. And maybe it still is, but I'd bet that the Swift Playgrounds app is basically what became of it.

                Apple Music is never going to make any useful money though. It simply needs to be cross platform because all the competing services are. There's no advantage to it being Apple only (in terms of UX, encryption, etc), only downsides. I think Apple Music is not doing great. They have a built in audience of 1bn users and jammed Apple Music into one of the primary experiences of those customers (the music app) and only managed to get 10-15m subscribers? Meh. It doesn't matter anyway. It's a money pit.

                Of course Apple Pay would be more useful if it spanned platforms. So would iMessage. So would iCloud Drive and all their other services. That's what I mean. Why this particular service and why now? It's always been the case that this was true and it's been the case that Android is enormous for many many years.

      I'm just reading the summary, but this seems very lackluster no? Mostly just bundled app updates and opening up Siri, which will misunderstand you 50% of the time anyway.

        There were some great advancements:

        - watchOS app speed updates
        - iOS notifications & home screen widgets
        - iMessage additions are good if you're deep into messaging

        I would have really preferred them to make a deeper dive into iOS (core app refreshes, primarily), and the noteworthy macOS updates seemed to be lacking.

        June 13, 2016 12:55 PM

        What were you expecting?

        I mean this is a developers' conference so most of it is going to only be interesting to developers.

        But also, at this point what more can they add that's going to blow anyone's mind? I would think that incremental updates are all anyone is going to get outside of a hardware announcement.

        Actually that's probably your answer - they unveiled iOS 10 today but the only things they can show or acknowledge are things that work on current hardware. In 2014 they introduced size classes and told everyone to start using them. Well the only real way they made sense to use was if more screen sizes were coming out. So the press guessed (correctly) that there were more phone and iPad sizes coming down the line.

        Maybe in the next few days there'll be some clue as to what's going to be in iPhone 7 or whatever.

          I would like to them lay out some form of AI and machine learning that seems like it has a chance at keeping up with Google. Software is where all the excitement is. I understand it is a dev conference, but it is also where they announce all the new iOS features every year. Day 1 is for the consumers just as much as the devs.

          I don't really agree. There were some big ones here, specifically integration with third-party apps (Siri, Maps, etc), but the rest was pretty blah. I think it's pretty telling that the stuff they chose to highlight a ton were apps they redesigned or launched only last year.

          Last couple of years I've been pretty down on Apple to be honest. I think they're slowing down and the increase in all of these platforms just seems like a mistake especially when their competition is merging everything into one platform. Sales in tablets are dropping and tablets that detach and can replace a PC is on the rise. Microsoft is already there and actually leading this category.

        Software wise it's probably the best in several years. They finally updated Siri and other things to the levels of Android. Watchos looks like it will be MUCH better, as it seems they're going to focus it mainly on fitness tracking with some notification stuff. It has focus, and it's UI is much less confusing now.

          There has to be. I can see why they wouldn't announce it, but if you can delete something like Mail, they have to have a way for a different app to become the default.
