Didn’t catch the livestream of Apple’s WWDC? Here’s what you missed

The biggest highlights from Apple’s WWDC18


June 7, 2018

The focus of this year’s World Wide Developer Conference was all about software, or as CNET put it, “more about polish, less about jaw-dropping changes.” Which, reportedly, some found to be a bit of a snooze-fest.

Here are a few highlights from WWDC 2018 in case you missed it.

iOS 12

The new operating system was the first feature Apple addressed, confirming it would be out later this year, with the update (free, mind you) focused on stability and performance.

The update comes with new AR features, Photos improvements, and more.

Including usage-awareness

Following Google’s announcement at I/O, Apple iOS 12 will also add a digital well-being tool with their new iOS section, called Screen Time

The feature hopes to help people wean themselves off 2-hour-plus screen seshes with their iPhone or iPad.

macOS Mojave

Mojave will include a complete rebuild of the app store, the ability to control smart home products directly from a Mac — and of course, a greater focus on data-protection.

watchOS 5

Most importantly, the Apple Watch will finally get that much-needed Knight Rider touch with a “Walkie-Talkie mode” that will allow Apple Watch-owners to gab with their Apple Watch-owning friends in style.
