OK, Cook is finishing up, reminding us of everything we just heard: The M2 MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. OS releases will be available to developers today, and public betas next month. They’ll be available to everyone else for free in the fall. WWDC runs through this week. There will be 175 sessions over the week for developers. Apple says its new Stage Manager will make multitasking a lot easier on the iPad, and it’ll work with external displays. With Stage Manager, you can resize windows, and the dock is visible.
Apple has unveiled a slew of new features for the iPhone, Apple Watch, and Mac that will be available later this year. The annual Worldwide Developers Conference is at us, and Apple’s keynote on Monday opened out with announcements of iOS 16, WatchOS 9, MacOS Ventura, the new M2 processor, and even more feature improvements for the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and more. Apple also announced new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models that would include the new M2 processor. In the live blog below, you can see all of the reveals. That is all there is to it. Apple has requested that we relocate. Thank you for taking the time to read and follow along!
You can see recently used apps on the screen, and you can format the layout however you want — even with overlapping windows. (I’ve been hoping for this one!) “Like you saw earlier, I can resize windows and rearrange everything just the way I want,” Federighi says. With an external display, the iPad looks very MacOS-y. You can have up to eight apps running simultaneously, with four apps running on each screen. You can drag and drop across displays as well. “It’s an entirely new way to multitask,” Federighi says, highlighting the “full external display support.” Apple says it’s also upgraded the Files app, Calendar and other apps to answer a lot of longstanding requests. Files now allows you to change file extensions. You can undo and redo across the system.
