WWDC 2021 followed in the footsteps of last year’s conference, as it was held entirely online for the second year in a row, from June 7 to June 11. If the event had been hosted in person, it would have attracted thousands of people to Silicon Valley. During Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, the company unveiled updates to a number of its operating systems, including iOS 15. The following are the WWDC 2021 Day 1 announcements:
Apple also released MacOS Monterey, formerly known as MacOS 12, as well as WatchOS 8 and iPadOS 15. Apple also unveiled iOS 15, a significant update that adds a plethora of new capabilities to the iPhone experience.
iOS 15 is said to make FaceTime calls more natural, give SharePlay for shared experiences, let users focus and be in the moment, and add more intelligence to photos and search to quickly access information with new techniques to handle notifications. With addition, in the next edition of Apple’s tablet OS, users will be able to add widgets to their tablet’s Home Screen. Users will also be able to use widgets to replace the entire app grid. According to Apple, Safari will be redesigned to be more streamlined and incorporate more device sync features. The iPhone and iPad will have access to Safari’s desktop software extensions. Extensions can exchange code between iPhone, iPad, and PC, making development easier.
“Swift and all of these other technologies and frameworks were designed with one goal in mind: to enable you to develop the greatest possible apps and to provide the greatest location to find them.”
–Susan Prescott, Apple’s head of Developer Relations
In addition, Apple’s Macs will gain a new “Universal Operate” capability to help them control their iPads. It will work in a simple fashion; simply move the mouse pointer to the side of the screen, and it will start running the other device.
