Apple’s WWDC 2021
So the keynote event was a two hour overview of all that’s coming to Apple’s operating systems later this year. If you really want to know everything but don’t have two hours to waste then click the link above to view an 11 minute supercut version!
It wasn’t an overly exciting event, and for some, it disappointed with no new hardware released.
For all teenagers iOS 15 is bringing a shared vision to Music and TV, where everyone on a call can watch or listen whilst chatting all about it, or in reality can talk a load of rubbish over the top of something playing in the background whilst not giving a monkeys about anything playing! Am I right? Or do I not get it? Why would you want to talk over a show about the show you’re trying to watch???
Do I sound like I’m getting old? Yes, yes I am and I don’t care!
So what is the next Mac OS update called?
iPad gets widgets and App Library, a new look Safari with redesigned tabs across all devices, continuity updated with universal control controlling all devices from a single keyboard/mouse or trackpad, minor updates to Maps, AirPods added to FindMy, and a bunch of other not very exciting stuff.
A more important question was which devices would support the next iOS/iPadOS update?
And for MacOS Monterey? We are losing some support for older devices.
12-inch MacBook (early 2016 and later)
MacBook Air (early 2015 and later)
MacBook Pro (early 2015 and later)
Mac mini (late 2014 and later)
iMac (late 2015 and later)
iMac Pro (2017 and later)
Mac Pro (late 2013 and later)
Overall it looks like a big minor update to everything. Here’s a gallery of all the update sheets….
