Presentation at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2016 [text translation]

Presentation at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2016 [text translation]

    Since 1983, Apple has held annual conferences for software developers from around the world to show them their new products. In 1997, Steve Jobs returned to the company he founded, and laid the new WWDC tradition: a small speech on the first day of the conference.

    This year will not be an exception. Not everyone can get into the tiny guest list of the conference. Not all of them can be present in the hall where Tim Cook will speak. Therefore, the performance will be broadcast on the web - both by Apple and other sources. Inside this post is a text translation of WWDC 2016.

    It has become known that this year, for the first time since 2006, in addition to the Mascoon Center, traditionally serving as the main venue for the four-day event, the opening of the WWDC will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium , built in 1915 and accommodating 6,000 people. The previous WWDC by the number of spectators did not exceed 5,200 people.

    Event starts : 20:00 Moscow time (10 am for San Francisco). Text translation within this post is actively updated before the start of the presentation.

    What to expect?

    The main mystery of any event Apple. There are always a lot of tips, but not ready-made answers.

    New "iron"?

    Someone says that the focus will be on the software. But you want to believe in new MacBooks. In the 15-inch "bug" is a three-year processor, in a 13-inch - two-year. Macbook Air has a two-year processor. It is time to put the new Intel Skylake there.

    There are rumors about the OLED strip above the keyboard. This is just a render , but he is catching up well.


    Swift 3.0

    In principle, everything is already clear .

    Siri on desktops

    There will be a new guest on the desktops . The voice assistant will not only come to OS X. Based on Siri, they will create a device similar to Amazon Echo with its Alexa. Siri will become freer, third-party developers will have access to it. Now Siri is already looking for a Finder. Someone seriously represents the visit of this lady:


    OS X Rebranding

    Mac OS X will become just MacOS. A random error hints at Apple's technical support site. The error was later corrected, but it was repeated again .


    Apple Music Redesign

    The interface is confusing, the product is difficult to use. Therefore, the service streaming music Apple Music threatens to redesign to make its use more intuitive.

    iOS 10

    Various assumptions hint that the systems on the Apple A5 and Apple A5X chips will no longer be supported. That is, the update does not threaten the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, the first generation of the iPad Mini, the fifth generation of the iPod Touch and the iPad 3. However, hardly anyone today is interested in supporting equipment with only half a gigabyte of RAM. It may disappear support for 32-bit A6 in the iPhone 5 and 5C and iPad 4.

    Specific changes can be predicted directly from the design of the pages of WWDC 2016 . Light text on a dark background. Is this a hint of a dark theme for a mobile OS?

    watchOS and tvOS

    Apple promised that this year the conference will focus on operating systems for set-top boxes and devices on the wrist.

    Most likely not going to happen

    These things today should not be expected: iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2 and (ha ha) Apple Car.

    All that is listed in this update - this is only the assumptions of the media and experts. What will happen in reality, we will know in a couple of hours.

    Other versions of Windows, Android and all the rest

    You can try to open the video stream through a third-party video player, for example, VLC. The stream address will be known a few minutes before the start of the broadcast. Current estimated (last year):

    Hall slowly continues to fill. Twitter is packed with the same 16: 9 screen photographs. By the way, isn’t this the first time a screen with this aspect ratio appears on the WWDC?
