Please rise and join us in a minute of silence to honor the victims and people who loved them.
Then they got started. The first thing to get unveiled was watchOS 3. This new version keeps your favorite apps in memory, with background updates, refreshed information, and instant launch. They finally added a Control Center, which, just like with iOS, you just swipe up from the bottom to open it.
Alongside the new software features for apps, Apple is adding support for wheelchairs users. This will change the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll".
Next, Eddy Cue comes on stage and reiterates:
The future of TV is apps.
Now Siri can search YouTube and movies by specific topics. You can also do a "Live tune in", where you can say something like, "watch ESPN2" and the live channel automatically starts playing.
With this new version, a dark mode is added. It changes the UI systemwide to a dark grey.
Craig Federighi now comes on stages and points out that something was wrong with iOS, watchOS, OS X, and tvOS. Something was sticking out. Now instead of OS X, we have macOS.
The name was apparently obivious, with them being in California. The new name for the new version of macOS is Sierra. macOS Sierra is focused on Continuity, iCloud, and the "fundamentals of the Mac experience".
The main new feature to this update is Siri. Now you can access Siri on your Mac, through the Siri Dock icon or the interface in the top-right corner.
The new firmware has a new feature called Universal Clipboard. This allows you to copy something on your iDevice and paste it on your Mac.
With this comes some iCloud Drive improvements. Such as, all your desktop files will be available through the cloud. It is now accessible on both macOS and iPhone.
Now there are new tools for automatically getting rid of old files and caches. This will free up more space then ever on your Mac.
Picture-in-picture is no longer just an iPad thing, now it is coming to your Mac. This will allow you to watch the big game (for example) while you work on a project in full-screen.
Federighi now starts talking about iOS 10. It has a redesigned Lock Screen, rich notifications, quick interaction with apps, and expanded 3D Touch capabilities. With the new version of iOS, Siri will be open to developers, which will add the possibility of many third-party commands.
Photos are gaining face recognition capabilities and the ability to recognize different objects to sort them by. Alongside the updated Photos app, Maps gets an update.
One on the biggest updates is to the Messages app. Now instead of that nasty link you can send a rich link. Also there is now emoji predictions. There are now bubble effects. Messages is now opened to developers to make iMessage apps.
