I'm not going to go into everything. So if new versions of Safari or iWork excite you, that will have to come from someone else.

 

New OS X is called Mavericks. Sorry Tim, you should have gone with the Sea Lion idea.

 

New Features spotlighted:

Finder tabs

File tags

Multiple display support (I'm not a Mac user, this is new?)

 

Others:

App nap, suspends apps not in use

OpenGL 4 support

Inactive apps will be compressed into memory, not to disk

Release in Fall

 

New line of MacBook Airs based on Haswell

9 hours on 11", 12 on 13"

802.11ac

Shipping today

11-inch with 128GB starts at $999. 13-inch with 128GB is $1099.

 

New Mac Pro

Very cool looking cylindrical design - but will it be functional or another Cube?

12 core Xeon 256 bit processor

PCIe

iOS 7

 

Complete UI overhaul - transparancy, new typography - probably has to be seen

Sounds like true multitasking is there

Skeuomorphism is of course gone.

 

10 features spotlighted:

Control Center - Swipe to get wifi control, airplane mode etc. This is the one thing I missed about not jailbreaking, I loved SBSettings. Available all the time like on other phones.

 

Multitasking confirmed - for all apps

iCloud Keychain support

Safari controls recede when scrolling down

AirDrop - share photos with friends. Only on iPhone 5, iPad 4 and mini and current Touch

Siri male voice is now available, can turn on wifi, bluetooth, etc. Twitter Wikipedia and Bing integrated. Car integration with 16 brands on board from Kia to Ferrari.

Apps update automatically - this could be bad, depending on the update. Hopefully this means delta updates as well. I'm hoping it has to be manually enabled per app.

iTunes Radio - streaming music. Free with ads, ad free for iTunes match subscribers

Activation lock - a lost wiped phone will need the iTunes account username and password to activate

1500 new APIs

 

Supports iPhone 4+, iPad 2+, iPad Mini and Touch 5th gen

So they took the multitasking interface straight from WebOS. I am quite OK with that, as it was an awesome interface.

I wonder what other developer stuff they have, There were rumors this morning about third party keyboard support but they didn't mention anything like that during they keynote. Of course that could be squeezed somewhere in the developer documentation (and of course developer.apple.com is down as it is being slammed right now)

They took stuff from Blackberry 10 it sounds like as well. I hope the multitasking is good, that is a major sticking point for us not getting a Mobile Device Management server.

wonder if they will fix the data leakage - specifically the systems ITunes - IPhone service and Apple services, not to mention the problem that the Wi-Fi on the 5 works differently then on previous phones, it actually turns off when hibernating and plugged into the charger

I'm hoping the Control Center will include Personal Hotspot as well. I did not notice it in the screen capture I saw. I'm also hoping that you can now copy a Calendar appointment. Those two things would make me very happy.

I do all my calendar event copying on my Mac; just Option drag into a new date. Dunno if it can be done on the iPhone directly or not, but I've no need for the latter.

Nope. iOS doesn't have the ability to copy Calendar appointments. And since I do a lot of Calendar updates while out and about, even if I had a Mac that wouldn't help me.

Not sure that iOS is the right term to use, as there are plenty of apps capable of doing this. I used specifically "calendars + Pro"
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

What's the exact name if the one you use? I found Calendars+, but I don't see how to copy in that one.
