The fact that we’ll most likely get Windows 10 on ARM on Apple Silicon Macs. It’s basically going to end up being a driver issue, but Apple seems open to the idea of dual booting and virtualizing 3rd party OS’s. Android on Mac Hardware might even become a thing.
Windows 10 on ARM wasn’t specifically mentioned, but both dual booting and virtualizing were mentioned in the Platforms State of the Union. With Apple allowing us to run 3rd party OS’s, we’ll be able to run an ARM OS of our choice as long as we’ve got driver support for that OS.
Yeah! I haven’t seen an announcement of the change or even a related session on the schedule but I pulled out an old test app and hooked it up to a proxy, and no more byte ranges. Way faster downloads.
I always struggle to put my phone down before bed, so the new bedtime feature is killer for me! A close second are the new accessibility features, specifically sound detection which seems game changing.
That didn’t have shortcut automations or watch integration though right? I feel like those 2 things really make it useful for me and convince me to put my phone down instead of scrolling through Twitter 😅
I've been wowed by how well iOS is sliding into macOS! BaseSystem is practically an iOS-style ramdisk with patchd/ramrod/mobile_obliterator(!)/friends without any usage of .pkg. (Shared code it seems even - has logic to exclude modem fw.)
Also: WebP support! (VP9 next please? ;)
I have a bunch of Table Views that only exist because I wanted them to display in a UIPopover on iPhone. I hope to replace most of them with UIMenus. So much better than the barely documented hoops to jump through to have a UIPopover on iPhone.
As a web/Python developer who has followed WWDC for years but never got farther than toying around in Xcode, fully SwiftUI apps using the App protocol rather than embedded within a UIKit ViewController makes me think I’ll get farther on a personal project this time. 🤞
Oh, and the pop-up on iPhone when you paste from your Clipboard.. it tells you the app you’re pasting to, and the app you’re pasting from. Seems like good clarity around use of the Clipboard with regard to Privacy.
ARKit (+ RealityKit): Technically super-impressive year over year. Each WWDC I think: “You can do that *at all*?” And they do it in real-time on a phone or tablet!
Only problem is I don’t have any current ideas involving those 😀…
By watching "What's new in managing Apple devices - WWDC 2020 - Videos - Apple Developer" talk, I just found out, that iOS will randomise the MAC address when joining a WiFi network!!!

Will be fun to see how my company will approach blocking devices 😬
