Some of the Ups and Down of Apple’s WWDC Keynote

WWDC Keynote

While I was very impressed with the quality and presentation of Apple’s WWDC presentation today, the actual content was a bit up and down. While the Mac was up big and iOS got it’s share of love, I have to say that iPadOS was unfortunately down. That’s the way it goes sometimes. Let’s take a look at some of the highs and lows in detail.

What Do You Want To See From Apple At WWDC?

I will have a wishlist of my own to post this weekend, but I am curious as we get close to the main event. What do all of you Apple fans out there want to see announced at WWDC this year?

Apple Makes the Right Move With WWDC

If you are an Apple fan or follower, then you doubtless have already heard that WWDC will be an online-only event this year. This certainly didn’t come as a shock, as most other tech conference scheduled before WWDC had already been cancelled or moved to streaming-only events. While Apple hasn’t given the dates, we do know that they will stream a Keynote and their typical developer sessions sometime in June.

Zombie iTunes Still Lives on in Windows

The rumors that Apple was killing off iTunes and replacing it with multiple apps for Music, Podcasts and TV made the rounds in the weeks leading up to WWDC. Because of this, the actual reveal of the new apps was expected during the Keynote and drew minimal fanfare.

Safari in iPadOS is Really Close to a Full Desktop Browser

I’ll start off by saying that I’m not complaining. I really like the revamped Safari in iPadOS 13. It is a smoother and more powerful browser that takes you were you want to go without the extra fuss of requesting desktop sites or the annoyance of still getting a mobile site afterward. It works about 98% of the time in my limited experience. It just isn’t quite all the way to what I get with Firefox or Chrome on my Windows laptop. At least not yet.

The Apple Monitor Stand That Broke the Internet

Well, maybe not the whole Internet, but definitely the parts that cover technology and Apple, specifically. Since WWDC was so good in every other respect, this one negative story has had to carry the hopes and dreams of click-baiters everywhere. Now, I’m not saying that everyone who has a negative opinion of Apple’s new $1,000 Pro Stand for their Pro Display XDR is click-baiting. However, we all know that when Apple bleeds, it leads, and there are sites like Forbes that are predictable with this kind of story. Even good journalists can fall prey to piling on Apple to bring out the haters.

Installing the iOS 13 Beta Using a Windows 10 Computer

I feel compelled to add to my post from earlier today, because the instructions in the Redmond Pie article I linked to left something to be desired. I have a feeling they didn’t try them out before they posted it, because they don’t work without some extra steps and considerations. So if you are a Windows user, have an Apple Dev Account and want to give the iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 Beta a go, here is what you need to do.

The Things People Do To Run Apple Beta Software

I understand that security and privacy are Apple’s middle name now and that developers especially appreciate these. However, Apple also knows that a pretty much every tech journalist and blogger that even remotely covers Apple has a Dev Account for one purpose- to run beta software for testing and to write about it. I am no exception.

Apple is Delivering the Goods When it Comes to Privacy

Apple has been doing a lot of talking about privacy over the last three years and it just keeps ramping up. It seemed to fall largely on deaf ears at first, but that has changed dramatically. The narrative on privacy has shifted due to a deluge of stories about large-scale hacks, user data abuse and lax online security. Where people once trusted the online services they are using and didn’t make their personal digital privacy a high priority, that has all changed fairly quickly.
