What We Didn’t Get From Apple at WWDC

WWDC 2021 Keynote

No matter how good WWDC is and how many new features we get, there is always something, more often somethings, that we don’t. Sometimes features get left on the cutting room floor. Sometimes we want things that Apple just doesn’t care to deliver. It’s always going to happen, but this year we have a few more notable unrequited requests than usual.

My Favorite New Features from Apple’s WWDC Keynote

WWDC 2021 Keynote Memoji Crowd

It’s been a looooong day. My day job never seems to cooperate with the scheduling of WWDC and this year was no different. I was hoping I would have plenty of time to dedicate to watching and Live Tweeting the Keynote during an extended lunch break, but it didn’t last. I was able to watch everything up to the watchOS portion uninterrupted, but that was about it.

I won’t bore you with all of the details of my day, but I just recently arrived in a hotel room in Nashville for some work out of town. However, the four hour drive here from the Memphis area did give me some time to listen to a few podcasts, review parts of the Keynote, and collect my thoughts on what we got from Apple at WWDC.

Here are some key additions and changes that stand out to me.

It’s WWDC Eve. What Will Apple’s Second Streamed Keynote Be Like?

WWDC 2021

Apple’s second consecutive streamed WWDC will kick off tomorrow, starting with their yearly Keynote event. Last year’s WWDC landed right in the heart of the first wave of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, but after the point where many people and companies had figured out how to get work done around the new constraints that COVID-19 put on the world.

Amid early concerns over whether Apple could pull its yearly developer event off, and if so, how polished it would look, the company really impressed with a very well-produced streamed event that mixed a recorded Keynote with live-streamed classes.

Gurman is Back to Give Us Some of the Goods on iPadOS 15

I guess spoiling a future iPad Pro with a glass back a few days ago wasn’t good enough for Mark Gurman. Today he’s back to spill more beans on iPadOS 15 two days ahead of Apple’s WWDC Keynote. Like I said yesterday, it’s all part of the game when it comes to Apple leaks.

My iPadOS Wishlist…Again

I had an admittedly ambitious wishlist for iPadOS 14 ahead of WWDC last year. Because of the impact of COVID, I knew we wouldn’t get all of what I proposed. However, I thought at least two or three of these proposed features would make the cut. Unfortunately, that wasn’t to be. Only one thing I mentioned, Spotlight Search, was even touched, and it only got a cosmetic overhaul.

It Seems Apple Put a Couple of Extra Sensors in the HomePod Mini

HomePod Mini

You never know what you might find when you take an Apple device apart. In the case of the HomePod Mini, that would be a previously unmentioned temperature and humidity sensor. To some of you, that may sound like something random to include in a speaker, but thanks to my line of work I know the value of a well placed environmental sensor or two.

A Few iPad Predictions for 2021

Logitech Folio Touch for iPad Air In front

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I did pretty well in my iPad predictions last year. However, there were a few clues out there that pointed in potential directions that Apple could move in. I just followed the breadcrumbs. We only have a couple of those this year, so I don’t expect to do as well. However, here are a few of my guesses for the year ahead.

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.
