Apple World Wide Developer Conference  2016


Highlights from Apple WWDC16

“The App Store started 8 years ago, with a little over 500 apps. Recently we passed a major milestone — we now have over 2 million apps.”

The Mac, changed personal computing. The iPhone, changed phones forever. The iPad, magically transforms a glass canvas into anything you want it to be. Our clearest vision of the future of computer. Apple Watch: Ultimate device for a healthy life. Apple TV: something something biggest canvas.

watchOS, tvOS, OS X, iOS. “We’re going to move each of these platforms forward today, and we’d like to get started with watchOS.”


“People are actually switching between faces for different occasions, and we’ve made that really simple.” Just swipe to change faces. Another totally new UI pattern that replaces Glances.


New feature: SOS on the Watch. Press and hold on the side button, it calls 911.

Works through your phone or on Wi-Fi. After you’re done calling 911, it pulls your locations and messages your friends. Then it shows your medical ID, which is another new feature.

Apple-Breathe  Apple-Breath-2

“You can actually set smart notifications to remind you to breathe.” Turn the crown to set how long you want to breathe for, close your eyes and haptic feedback will guide you.

Free upgrade this fall. “It’ll feel like a whole new Watch.”


“The future of TV was apps. The response to Apple TV has been incredible.”

Sling coming to Apple TV. Fox Sports Go

“Siri changed the way we interact with our television because now we just tell it what we want to watch.” Now you can search for categories of movies. Can just say “find high school comedies from the ’80s.”

“A big part of your TV experience is live channels… we’ve got a great new feature called Live Tune-In.” You can just say Watch ESPN2 and it’ll pop open.


  OS X the name has been with us for over 15 years, and it’s served us well. We realized there’s a name that’s so much clearer, and so much simpler.” Renamed to macOS!


When you shop online, you’ll have an Apple Pay button. When you pay, you’ll get a prompt to authenticate on your phone or watch with TouchID or a tap on the wrist.
