On June 11, I said:
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.
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.
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.
