A thread for the World Wide Developer's Conference.

Nice to see the first tab being, you know, the music you liked enough to buy and keep on your phone. That might correlate well to users wanting to access that stuff first.

On a work call so can't watch (checking in w/ Ars liveblog) -- so HomeKit's Scenes is basically a set of user-defined rules?

Did he just throw away that iTunes would be on Android now?

Seems like setting up a set of actions to be applied with one touch.

They DO realize that by putting all this stuff on the lock screen means that anybody who gets the phone has access to all of this? It feels like I'll have to disable all of the cool features.

"Someone in marketing thought that's what you see when you look into your camera" — jesus, dude, change the image before the presentation if you don't like it, you're making fun of yourself. Perhaps the most anti-Jobsian on-stage moment since the Amelio age.

It was a deliberate joke, I'm sure.

Was wondering about this. Need to see how it's actually implemented.

Apple still has an interface design team? Where have they been? Didn't they all commit ritual suicide after the first Apple Music interface came out?

Even worse if so

I loved the marketing put-down. Human, plays well with the nerd crowd. Craig really is the best presenter, and that's not a bad thing.

HomeKit already had scenes. What's new is that, unbelievably, Apple made an app to front the SDK instead of hoping users would find third party apps. Unfortunately, looks like this is going to be another useless icon taking up space for most people, unless they're going to let us hide built-in apps now.

Wow, Messages really is a platform now. That's why it's on Android now.

Get back to me when we're done with Messages. Yeesh.

Even more horrible animations! It will never end

I have no connected items in my apartment, but it seems two things about HomeKit. On the one hand, it could be seen as Apple bigfooting over small companies w/ smart devices. On the other hand, having one iOS-centered, uh, center for all that might make it easier or even possible for the average person to coordinate things like "I get home around 7pm, so let's set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature, pre-heat the over because I like to bake as soon as I walk in the door, turn on the front porch light"?

It would be really funny to send your heartbeat to somebody, stop it abruptly, and then send the emergency contact "health emergency" message.

Did they say what devices are and aren't supported in the dev preview of iOS 10? Anyone downloading it? I would think about trying it on my iPad 3 but not my only, everyday phone.

I mean, if it integrates them well it'll sell a shit-ton of smart devices, if I were selling Bluetooth garden sprinklers or whatever I'd be going nuts for them to develop it more.

Ha -- kind of love the idea of geofenced sprinklers, so they're smart enough not to go on while you're lying on the grass WITH YOUR PHONE.
