Time once again for Apple to announce
new software, transitions,
the consumers will pounce!
We waited abated for Tim Cook to speak
on the state of the platforms
For Federighi, his dad jokes, a little bit weak
First up; IOS 14
with widgets, app trays,
giving the home screen a much needed sheen
iPadOS, another innovation
with Scribble to turn notes to text
Sidebars! And minimized notification
WatchOS on your wrist
Now with face sharing
Dancing, Activity is now fitness
Now onto MacOS Big Sur
with new icon and translucent menus
So much information, kind of a blur
One more thing!
A waited for chip transition
Who knows what it will bring
Apple silicon inside
Rosetta 2 and universal app distribution
Intels time to run and hide
Some minor updates to the some of the rest
TVOS with 4K youtube
Setting default email is simply the best
Privacy on the menu with Apple Sign-in
Simple ways to see whose tracking you
Whew! With that we’re through
A lot of new content coming to the collected Apple systems. If you missed the keynote, there are some great recap videos, including this one from the Verge. Also check out the the official Apple recaps for Day 1 and Day 2 of the conference.
I’m incredibly interested in the new arm Macs. I feel that the new design language for MacOS is great and I’m in the market for a new Mac. (I currently use an old mid-2012 MacBook pro – It works fine but no Big Sur.) I primarily use an IOS and IpadOS devices so I think the IOS-ification of the platform is fine.
I hope you enjoyed the poetry recap – more news, tech, and poetry coming your way.
