Hey there! It’s me! WWDC 2022 was on tuesday! I am here today to give you guys a summary of what happened! Let’s dive into it.
All of my information is from apple.com
iOS 16- The new software updates for iPhones focuses alot of customization. For the first time in apple history, we will be able to customize the lock screen! You can add widgets to the lock screen. have different focus lock screens, and can change the font on the lock screen! Also notifications will now roll in from the bottom of the screen. New updates include better shared photo libraries and some new updates to messages. You can now edit a message and can unsend a message! Apple also has been working on shareplay and you can now shareplay over messages! They have also been fixing some bugs on the mail app. They introduced passkeys which are “a more secure and easier way to sign in” (apple.com). Now there is live text for video which basically means you can pause a video with text and be able to copy and paste it! You can also lift a subject from a picture and isolate it which is cool. Better dictation and automatic punctuation on dictation!! Updates to maps, updates to apple pay and wallet like Apple pay later which allows you to split the cost of something you bought using apple pay. New updates to home which I will not go in depth. Health and fitness updates. And family sharing updates. Privacy and Security safety check , and accessibility updates like door detection and live captions, and more! Finally, we have the next generation of CarPlay in which your iphone can basically take over the car screens. Here is a picture: For more information find out at: https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

macOS Ventura- This is the update for macs! First of all, I will say that I liked the name monterey better (it’s fun to say), but Ventura is also a nice name. Improved search and updates on the mail app. Enhanced image search in spotlight, also a new search design and quick actions for spotlight. Safari and Passkeys updates, shared tab groups on safari. Messages updates like edit messages and unsend messages. Shareplay through Messages and richer collaboration. Updates to photos such as icloud shared photo library.

New MacBook air!!- The finally introduced a new macbook air! It has a new design, m2 chip, up to 18 hours of battery life, a liquid retina display, and advanced camera and audio. It is very thin, like always, 2.7 pounds and 0.44″ thin. There are four colors: Space gray, silver, starlight (new for mb air) and the one I am most excited about, midnight (also new). The new M2 chip is in it and makes it super fast! There is still tough id but now instead of the boring usbc port for charging we get a magsafe charging port (which is amazing, my dad has it on his 2015 macbook), and two thunderbolt ports!

Macbook pro 13”- The new 13″ macbook pro has the m2 chip basically other than that it’s the same as the other m1 13″ macbook pro, so I would probably not upgrade to the new one if you already have the m1 . It has 20 hours of battery life . It has a retina display, 500 nits of brightness and true tone. Better camera and audio, and the same magic keyboard with a touch bar.. Personally I am not a big fan of the touch bar and prefer regular keys. It has touch id. For more information go to https://www.apple.com/apple-events/
