Apple WWDC23 Recap

The Apple Vision Pro, Apple’s AR and VR headset, was the showstopper for WWDC23 With intentions of completely altering the field of immersive technology. This personal display, which costs INR 2,88,749, combines features from iOS, macOS, and tvOS with well-known Apple interface components. The headgear has a sleek look and is expected to start sale in early 2024. Its glass front conceals cameras and a curved OLED outer display.

The M2 chip, Apple’s top processor, allows the Vision Pro to operate as a full-fledged computer from the inside out. In contrast, a specialised R1 chip works in tandem with the M2 to handle data from the headset’s 12 cameras, 5 sensors, and 6 microphones, decreasing latency and delivering a flawless visual experience in an amazing 12-millisecond timeframe. Apple proudly calls this operating system, which runs on the new visionOS and makes use of iOS frameworks and cutting-edge graphics methods like foveated rendering, “the first designed from the ground up for spatial computing.”

The Much Awaited iOS 17 update

Apple WWDC23 Recap

Numerous quality-of-life improvements introduced in iOS 17 will significantly enhance the user experience. The capability to search within your Messages, which makes it simpler than ever to discover certain conversations, is one much expected feature. Additionally, tap on certain messages to react to them directly, and voice comments will automatically be transcribed to improve accessibility.

The new iOS 17 lets you say goodbye to boring grey panels when accepting calls. As an alternative, you may give contacts full-screen pictures or customised Memojis to give them some visual flare. Furthermore, real-time transcription of voicemails will offer a practical method of call screening and identification of unfamiliar callers.

Apple WWDC23 Recap

Check In, a major new safety feature, lets you notify trusted contacts when you arrive at a certain area. This is especially helpful for letting loved ones know when you arrive safely after a late-night journey. iOS will encourage you to prolong the duration rather than instantly contacting your contact if your travel takes longer than you anticipated. Additionally, Check In transmits crucial information like battery and signal health while ensuring end-to-end confidentiality.

The ability to copy video subjects and paste them as stickers has been added to iOS, building on the features that were first presented last year. This makes it possible to create animated GIFs, which are ideal for sending to friends or using as amusing Messages replies. Every single emoji may now also be shared as stickers.

While iOS 17 adds Name Drop, a feature that makes it easy to share your contact information, AirDrop has always been a helpful tool for sharing files between Apple devices. You may pick and choose which information to disclose, including email addresses, phone numbers, and more.

Apple WWDC23 Recap

In iOS 17, the private journaling app Journal makes its debut. Apple describes it as a practise in thankfulness, but it involves more than just writing notes. Journal keeps a detailed record of your experiences by automatically logging activities like listening to music and working out.

When your iPhone is horizontally charging and you want a dedicated alarm clock experience, the new StandBy mode may be used. It features a big, clear clock face in addition to practical calendar and audio functions, making it a multipurpose bedtime companion.

Last but not least, iOS 17 does away with the need that users utter “Hey Siri” before giving orders. Now that the voice assistant can be activated just by saying “Siri,” communication is streamlined and voice control is much simpler.

The new iPad OS 17

More interactive controls added to iPadOS 17 improve widget usefulness. These widgets not only offer information that can be seen quickly, but they also have interactive buttons that let you control your smart home appliances or start playing music right away.

With improved visualisations for sleep patterns and activity levels, the Health app in iPadOS 17 now displays more interactive personal data and gives you a full picture of your health.

Additional quality-of-life enhancements in this future iPadOS version include more customizable lock screens and the ability to set multiple timers, which is particularly helpful while cooking. Additionally, a more dynamic and engaging experience is now possible with the Stage Manager tool for iPad selfie cameras during video conversations.

Apple WWDC23 Recap

Apple has enhanced the capability for working with PDFs by taking use of the large screen real estate on iPads. Now, users may interact in real-time while editing PDF files, add signatures right within iPadOS, and automatically complete out forms. Additionally, the revised files may be easily organised and kept within the Notes app for quick access.

MacOS Sonoma with focus on gaming

Apple WWDC23 Recap

A new gaming mode that prioritises CPU and GPU to increase frame rate is one of the gaming improvements in Sonoma. With decreased latency for wireless controllers, speakers, and headsets, Apple is focusing on immersion. The greatest gaming news is that famed game designer Hideo Kojima’s masterpiece Death Stranding is coming to Macs later this year. Apple is luring developers with game dev kits and Metal 3, but that’s hardly the biggest gaming announcement. At the WWDC conference, Kojima stated, “We are actively working to bring our future titles to Apple platforms.”
