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.

With WWDC only a week away, there are a couple of new Apple deals that have come to light. The first is their new no-interest Apple Card payment plans for Macs, iPads and their accessories, HomePods, Apple TV, AirPods Pro, AirPods and other devices. These new plans, which are similar to one unveiled for the iPhone last year, were rumored last week.

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.

Apple Faces Multiple Decisions in the Face of COVID-19’s Impact

I don’t envy Tim Cook right now. His Chinese supply chain, the one-time envy off the tech world and backbone of Apple’s amazing growth over the last 15 years, is still moving slowly as SE Asia recovers from COVID-19’s initial round of effects. However, even as things gradually return to some kind of normalcy on the other side of the world, the pace of production will be slowed for months to come. Now Apple also has the potential impact of this new threat here at home to deal with, as well.

For me, the new redesigned Share Sheet is one of those small but impactful changes that just clears things up a bit and makes a good feature that much better.

Apple’s iOS 13 iPhone Optimized Battery Charging is a Smart Step for Apple

A year and a half ago, Apple was taking shots from all sides over their handling of “optimizing” the performance of worn iPhone batteries by throttling the processor. While throttling processor performance to prevent problems is common in different areas of the tech sector, it was the fact that Apple wasn’t forthcoming about what they were doing that got them in hot water.
