C0D45715550dSome of it is catch up, some of it is UX improvements.
I briefed over the iOS part, since not much else is relevant to me and found the widgets (although catching up to Android) a much needed feature.
That and Appclips 😊so many times you get asked for a bloody app to buy something these days. But again more of a UX thing then a real "inovative" change.
I didn’t realize you had to be the first person to do it for it to count (shrug)
JS961826450dI used Windows Phone for 6 years, I used iOS for 4 years, and I'm using Android now.
I used to be a Microsoft fanboy, then I started to try everything without being fanboy of anything.
And sorry, but, at least in my opinion, iOS after the yesterday conference became the best OS for smartphones, they added everything was missing and people wanted.
It's not innovative, they're not the first to do thing, but when they do it they add so much small details and quality the overall experience is better.
And if we want to talk about MacOS, just look at the consistency of the UX in comparison to Windows... Microsoft introduced Fluent Design in 2017 and they still didn't figure out how to make it and where to put it. 3 years and a lot of things are the same others have been modified more than twice.
It took a lot but the missing features they added are high quality.
Maybe for someone is sad, but they're a really great tech company. IMHO.

uyouthe1092850dWhen android has it, it’s probably broken and raw shit that they put together quickly just to be ahead of iOS at least in something because being ahead of iOS in meaningful things such as performance is impossible for android.
When iOS has it, it’s polished as hell, though of and ready to use. At least I’m sure that iOS widgets won’t drain the battery like it was on android 4.1.
The presentation was amazing, I can’t wait to see the new arm cpus that are both more performant and more efficient than intel. That is brilliant idea if you think about it but nobody could force the developers to recompile anything for arm so apple stepped up, which is extremely responsible thing to do.
I used android flagships for year, but after touching dirt cheap first gen iPhone se I felt that I was lied to for all those times before. Same story with MacBook.
uyouthe1092850dToo bad that bashing apple for everything you can think of fits the agenda here and you can easily harvest some upvotes just with some bullshit like “reeeee apple bad”. Android and Linux are cool, I get it.
I can’t believe they get away with this every rant.

Root6535327dWhile I prefer Linux because I can completely customize my machine and I know exactly what it is doing, my second favorite is definitely Apple. It’s a beautiful prison, but it’s all very smooth and performant and reliable, and does so many things right. I am genuinely impressed.
