Holy “Swift”….Continuity…..Extensions…..Health Kit(book?!)…Photos….Messages….Keyboards……Yosemite…iOS 8
Old Wine in new Bottle? May be , but this is the openest Apple i have ever seen.
If anyone have thought that there will be a new hardware introduced in WWDC, they are in for surprise( god i hoped that there will be atleast one piece of hardware).. But is it a disappointment? NO…Apple’s Keynote presentation lasted for about two hours (1:52:00) and they didn’t had enough time to out these awesome features on stage
- Wi-Fi calling support
- iTunes content purchases with Siri(Hey Siri, Buy me new Beyonce’s Album, zooop..done)
- Instant burst camera mode
And there are 20 more :) - http://bgr.com/2014/06/02/secret-ios-8-features/
But the main takeaways are given below
- Apple sucks at cloud?! - NO MORE, 90% of the features introduced with iOS 8 is associated with cloud and dropbox is already in tears.
- 3rd party integration - Keyboards-tick,apps calling other apps-tick,Touch id integration-tick( we are coming for you Androids)
- Holy Swift - New Language, new Era. Lot of young folks (13-17) in this WWDC and this new language signals a new ERA.
- Health Kit - iWatch is coming - A health kit, An iPod,A communications Device , Are you getting this?
- Continuity- Make a call from iPhone, continue it on iMac, open a presentation and continue that on iPad and so on…..
I felt happy after this Keynote and waiting for the fall already.
