That was the most unimpressive and boring keynote I've ever watched.

Solid, but a lot of features that android already has. Apple delivered, but failed to impress. It was ok.

I watched it on my Apple TV and I have to say I was Impressed. Lots of new features which make our daily lives so much easier. Loved the continuity feature!

Was hoping for some hardware release and there was none :(

I think that Apple has done everything right with this keynote. It was all about developers and they did get plenty of stuff to be happy about, including features that might hint at coming hardware. If metal is that efficient, it could mean an Apple TV that will be really good at running games - as iOS will, it could definitely become even more a focus of gaming studios, especially in the combination of having the users that spend the most money on apps. And Craig Federighi was really great at what he was doing.

I can understand if users of one side - either iOS or OSX - aren't overwhelmed but for me using both, I loved the preview. Yes, Apple has the same problem as MS has - they cannot move extremely fast, it takes a new OS release to introduce larger updates, but I'm fine with that.

So many great features that have been available on other ecosystems for so long, it is nice to finally see them start creeping into IOS.

So cringeworthy though to see them crow over how much better IOS is over the "toxic hellstew" of Android, only to then start adopting features that have been available for years (e.g. battery usage monitor) and start cribbing from the likes of Whatsapp.

As an end user I am pleased with anything that improves my user experience, I just hate the cheap point scoring they choose to do all the time, rather than simply rising above it all and letting the software do the talking.
