I really loved this style of presentation. It was exactly as I had expected.

On June 11, I said:


I expect that it’ll be a lot like Craig Federighi‘s iPad Pro demo. We’ll probably see some outdoor segments, Apple Park cafeteria and maybe in the Steve Jobs Theatre lobby. There’ll probably be ad format videos in betweeen segments.

While I do expect people to return to the Steve Jobs Theater eventually, I think that this might be the end of the “Stevenote” era. There might still be Tim Cook on stage with an audience in the theatre but some segments will be held in different parts of Apple Park and shown for those in the theatre on screen while those of us at home will see the kind of presentation we saw today.


I’d even argue that this might mark the end of the Stevenote era. Apple Park is such a beautiful campus. Showing it off during their presentations is probably better than watching people on a stage. Sure, there’ll be press events where Apple can interact with the world’s media face to face and they can try the new products in person, but these events may never again look like the keynote that Steve Jobs popularized.

Besides the Apple silicon, the iOS non-obtrusive call notification is perhaps the biggest satisfactory software news since long. That should relieve many a geek and any user with a somehow logical mind alike!

IMHO one of the best keynotes since the iPhone was announced. I’m so happy to see Springboard getting updated — been hoping for that for years. The watch features are nice too; I’m glad they are including Sleep Tracking in the software update rather than locking it behind a new hardware model.

The only thing left scratching my head was Tim saying they have new Intel Macs in the pipeline (who is going to buy a new machine with an architecture that already has a death sentence)?

But overall, some really nice updates here. Good work, Apple.

We won’t know more about the ARM switch for a while, so what really stood out for me was how nice Big Sur looks. Really really nice.
The other highlights for me were the side bar for iOS apps, Scribble, and Notes improvements. I’m not a big widgets fan, but glad it’s there so people stop complaining. Phone notifications and airpods device switching was nice too.
