Everybody’s likely to pull their own highlights from the WWDC, but I hope—dare I predict?—John Gruber’s “The Talk Show: Live from WWDC 2015” will be all the way up there. I’ve mentioned how much I like Apple’s (new) openness—latest example: Stephen Fry met Jony Ive—but this is a whole new level: “I shit you not”, Phil Schiller. “Apple doesn’t do this,” said Marco. And Phil blushed.
Assorted quick notes from WWDC:
- Makes one hopeful: Andreas Schenk: “Reading the release notes for Server 5 (El Capitan Server) makes me happy.”
- Incredible service: WWDC notes by rtrouton.
- The iPad grows up: MacStories: Initial Thoughts on iOS 9’s iPad Multitasking: A Deep Transformation.—“Approved” by Phil Schiller.
- In case you’re confused: What Apple Music means for iTunes Match.
- In case you can’t wait: Apple Developer: Fonts.
