Each year, Apple will organize their developer conference called WWDC. This platform is used by Apple to give a preview and early access to the upcoming technology for their developers. As a consumer, we can get first insight on things currently they worked on.
For me, the 2016 Apple’s WWDC is greater than ever. It is because they are improving every aspect of their current platform. The iOS and macOS (previously known as OSX) received a huge upgrade within the iOS10 and macOS Sierra.
I have listed five things that caught my attention during the 2016 WWDC.
- Universal Clipboard: which allow you to copy and paste from iOS and paste it on macOS
- Synchronize files on macOS desktop into iCloud drive on iPhone
- Apple Pay enable
- Picture in Picture which let you view action small screen on desktop
- Siri on macOS with search integration
Apple Pay is coming to the web:
- Fast and straightforward authentication using iPhone
iOS10 is better than ever:
- Redesigned locked screen with quick access to camera, widgets and expanded 3D touch feature
- Control Center also receives huge updates with shortcut to music app
- Motion to wake up the iPhone
- iOS now have widgets on lock screen and home screen
- Powerful features on iMessage (bigger emoji, emoji prediction, tap to replace text and emoji, bubble effects, invisible ink, handwritten messages, digital touch which previously found on watchOS) and it is now available for developers too
- Convert voicemail into text through Voicemail transcription feature
- Siri is now open for developers which allow them to use Siri by giving their app capabilities to be connected to Siri
- Siri is now available on macOS, and it has better functionalities on tvOS too
- Apple now provides their app for home automation called the Home.
- The app will enable you to connect every single device compatible with Apple HomeKit.
