Curious to see them announce new Intel based computers, and also “oh by the way we’re transitioning away from Intel processors”.

They’re smart and probably have a great plan, I’m just eager to hear it.

iOS 12 was great because they focused mostly on bugs and performance, it was such a stable release.

I'd take bug fixes and performance improvements over new features any day.
