01:53PM EDT – Tongue Detection (not a joke)

01:52PM EDT – Now on to Animoji

01:52PM EDT – Built on top of Family Sharing

01:51PM EDT – So limit when apps can be used and how much total time

01:51PM EDT – New feature: allowances

01:51PM EDT – Speaking of parental controls, those are updated as well

01:50PM EDT – Parental controls without the actual hard limits, basically

01:50PM EDT – Have the phone harass you about how much you’re using it, based on how long of a limit you send

01:50PM EDT – App Limits

01:49PM EDT – Shows app usage, how often the phone is picked up, what apps send the most notifications etc

01:49PM EDT – Weekly activity summary, somewhat similar to what Google announced for Android P earlier this year

01:48PM EDT – New feature: Screen Time

01:48PM EDT – Grouped Notifications: notifications can now be grouped by app

01:48PM EDT – Apple’s essentially looking to clamp down on how many notificaitons that users actually need to deal with

01:47PM EDT – “Instant Tuning” for notifications from the lock screen

01:47PM EDT – DnD control updates in the Control Center as well

01:46PM EDT – Introducing DnD During Bedtime, where notifications will not be shown

01:46PM EDT – Do Not Disturb is being updated

01:46PM EDT – Next subject: a comprehensive set of features to limit how distracting an iOS device is

01:44PM EDT – Now on to CarPlay

01:44PM EDT – “Very dramatic. We dropped the ‘i’ “

01:43PM EDT – iBooks is now Apple Books

01:43PM EDT – And Voice Memos comes to the iPad as well

01:43PM EDT – Voice Memos has been completely rebuilt as well

01:42PM EDT – Stock is also coming to the iPad

01:42PM EDT – Top stories in Stocks is business news that’s curated by the Apple News editor team

01:42PM EDT – Apple News is coming to Stocks

01:41PM EDT – (AAPL is at $192)

01:41PM EDT – The Stocks app has been completely rebuilt

01:41PM EDT – And a new view on the iPad

01:41PM EDT – New Browse tab for News

01:41PM EDT – (Be sure to subscribe to AnandTech!)

01:40PM EDT – Starting with News

01:40PM EDT – Quickly covering updates to various Apple apps

01:40PM EDT – And then to Susan to talk about apps

01:40PM EDT – Back to Craig

01:39PM EDT – Now showing a complex shortcut that does several things: maps a route, texts a contact, changes the radio, and sets the home thermostat

01:37PM EDT – Shortcuts recognizes that Kim is running late for a meeting, and suggests notifying the organizer

01:36PM EDT – Now demoing Siri shortcuts

01:36PM EDT – Now on stage: Kim Beverit

01:36PM EDT – Drag & drop interface

01:35PM EDT – Using the aptly named Shortcuts app

01:35PM EDT – Users will also be able to create their own shortcuts

01:34PM EDT – Showing an example of having Siri launch an app based on a specific phrase

01:33PM EDT – Lets apps expose features to Siri

01:33PM EDT – New Siri feature: Shortcuts

01:33PM EDT – Now on to Siri

01:33PM EDT – All based around Messages, of course

01:32PM EDT – Multiple phones can recognize photos taken at the same event, and suggest photos to send back

01:32PM EDT – Photos are shared at full resolution

01:32PM EDT – And whom to share them with

01:31PM EDT – For You can also suggest photos to share

01:31PM EDT – New tab: For You

01:30PM EDT – Can search by locations, events, etc

01:30PM EDT – iOS 12 is adding search suggestions for photos

01:30PM EDT – First up: search

01:29PM EDT – Up next: photos

01:29PM EDT – Can also save a world for future use

01:27PM EDT – Up to 4 people in the same space

01:26PM EDT – Demoing LEGO’s latest AR-enabled software

01:25PM EDT – LEGO wants to combine physical and digital

01:25PM EDT – Now on stage: Martin Sanders of LEGO

01:24PM EDT – Quickly demoing it while Federighi talks

01:24PM EDT – Multiple people can see the same environment from difference perspectives

01:24PM EDT – Improved face tracking, 3D object detection, shared experiences, etc

01:23PM EDT – (No point-oh)

01:23PM EDT – Now announcing ARKit 2

01:22PM EDT – Showing off more AR/USDZ uses

01:22PM EDT – Can also estimate the size of basic rectangles (example: a printed photo)

01:21PM EDT – So a best-effort implementation without true 3D vision

01:21PM EDT – Similar to how 3D cameras already have this feature, but instead you need to mark two points and the phone needs to calculate the distance

01:20PM EDT – Apple is finally integrating measurement support for their cameras

01:20PM EDT – New Apple app: measure

01:19PM EDT – Back to Federighi

01:19PM EDT – A WYSIWYG editor for AR

01:19PM EDT – Also will be releasing a new iOS application for designing AR content

01:18PM EDT – Adobe will support USDZ in their Creative Cloud applications

01:18PM EDT – Now on stage: Abhay Parasnis of Adobe

01:17PM EDT – Designed to be easily sharable. Apple is working with multiple companies to get support for the format in their apps

01:17PM EDT – Designed in collaboration with Pixar

01:17PM EDT – Apple has created a new file format for AR: USDZ

01:16PM EDT – Now on to Augmented Reality

01:16PM EDT – And that’s the word on performance

01:16PM EDT – Much faster CPU clockspeed ramping up and down

01:15PM EDT – It sounds like iOS 12 is going to get a new CPU governor

01:15PM EDT – 40% faster app launch on a 6s, etc

01:15PM EDT – Apple will also be focusing on older devices; those that need the most performance gains since iOS 10/11 added features at the cost of performance

01:14PM EDT – Making it the biggest window yet for iOS support

01:14PM EDT – iOS 12 will be supported on all devices that can run iOS 11

01:13PM EDT – (Yay, I’ll take it)

01:13PM EDT – iOS 12: “We are doubling-down on performance”

01:13PM EDT – Apple says that customer satisfaction for iOS 11 is 95%

01:13PM EDT – Still, only 81% of devices are on iOS 11

01:12PM EDT – Touting the fact that all Apple customers are able to quickly update to the latest release of iOS

01:12PM EDT – (iOS 6. Now there was a good OS)

01:11PM EDT – Federighi confirms that the next iOS is 12

01:11PM EDT – Now on stage: Craig Federighi

01:11PM EDT – Starting with iOS

01:11PM EDT – Now diving into Apple’s 4 platforms: iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS

01:10PM EDT – So that’s that when it comes to hardware

01:10PM EDT – “Today is all about software”

01:10PM EDT – Cook is recapping Apple’s efforts to teach coding

01:09PM EDT – Now diving into Swift, Apple’s favored programming language

01:08PM EDT – Apple is expecting total developer payouts via the App Store to top 100 billion USD this week

01:07PM EDT – (And to think the iPhone didn’t have an app store in its first year)

01:07PM EDT – Apple is getting ready to celebrate the 10th birthday of the app store

01:06PM EDT – 6000 people in the conference hall itself

01:06PM EDT – And 20 million registered developers

01:06PM EDT – Developers here from 77 countries

01:05PM EDT – The video has ended, and Tim Cook is taking the stage

01:05PM EDT – “Only the strongest apps will survive”

01:02PM EDT – A faux nature video about developers migrating to San Jose for WWDC

01:01PM EDT – As usual, Apple starts by rolling a video

01:01PM EDT – And here we go?

12:58PM EDT – The silence-your-phones notification has gone out, so we should be getting started soon here

12:58PM EDT – “More inter-app communications” and “more customization” were among the top things on Andrei’s list

12:57PM EDT – Speaking of smartphones – and to fill some dead space here – I asked Andrei what he wants to see in iOS 12

12:56PM EDT – So we’re interspersing Apple news with things like new PSUs, mobile device developer kits, and of course, Android Smartphones

12:55PM EDT – (Thank you, Purch, for the travel budget!)

12:55PM EDT – So AnandTech staffers are flung across the far corners of the globe to cover everything this week

12:55PM EDT – Normally WWDC has taken place a week later than Computex

12:54PM EDT – Adding an extra spanner in all of this is that this year both WWDC and Computex are taking place at the same time

12:53PM EDT – So we’ll have to see what Apple has in store

12:53PM EDT – As for Apple’s services, that’s going to be a grab bag, most likely

12:51PM EDT – And on a personal note, if it woud bring back the iOS 10 landscape keyboard, that would be even better

12:50PM EDT – So if iOS 12 shores things up and changes fewer things, that would be okay

12:50PM EDThttps://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2018/

12:49PM EDT – (I’m told the official Apple stream is finally up)

12:48PM EDT – iOS 11 was a very rocky launch for Apple, with far too many bugs and features that weren’t ready for shipping

12:47PM EDT – It is not unearned

12:47PM EDT – Meanwhile on the software side of matters, there’s a lot of clammoring for Apple to focus on quality over features

12:42PM EDT – So if this lets Apple’s presenters slow down a bit, I’m not sure that would be a bad thing

12:42PM EDT – The flip side of that is that the last couple of WWDCs have already needed to move at warp speed

12:41PM EDT – In which case this would be the first show in a while without some kind of hardware

12:41PM EDT – At best, Apple may announce some far-future products. But the company’s logistical operation is so large that they can’t hide anything that’s close to shipping

12:40PM EDT – So right now I’m not expecting any hardware

12:40PM EDT – This is of course a rumor, but Bloomberg is traditionally a high quality source. And it’s consistent with some things I’ve heard as well

12:39PM EDThttps://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-31/apple-to-tout-digital-health-ar-features-at-software-conference

12:39PM EDT – Bloomberg has published a report stating that there won’t be any hardware at the show this year

12:38PM EDT – Now as for hardware, that’s a different matter

12:38PM EDT – And we’ll almost certainly see news about other pieces of software and aspects of the Apple ecosystem

12:38PM EDT – So iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS news are all but guaranteed

12:38PM EDT – So what are we expecting this year? Software is a given, of course. This is traditionally the venue where Apple outlines their OS plans for the next 12 months

12:37PM EDT – Which goes to show just how popular the event is

12:37PM EDT – And even then, it’s pretty much a lottery to get in. Apple could still use more space

12:36PM EDT – Apple really packs the house for this event. There are people in some fashion on basically every square foot of the venue

12:35PM EDT – Joining me is the ever-awesome Andrei Frumusanu, who has forgotten more about phones than I’ll ever know

12:34PM EDT – This event is arguably Apple’s marquee event of the year, as Apple has packed the San Jose Convention Center with press and developers alike to hear what the company has in store this year

12:33PM EDT – We’re live from sunny San Jose for this year’s Apple World Wide Developers Conference keynote
