I haven’t been this excited for new updated operating systems from apple in a long time. I think they actually brought a lot to the table this time.

Is anyone else bored by AI? AI this, AI that, AI something else. I'm getting old and I'm set in my ways; I'd rather do things my own way than cheat and have a computer guess at what I actually want. And it's not AI, really. It can't learn itself. It's trained.

Apple also has this weird fixation with (fetish for?) emojis.

This was one of the few keynotes that I skipped entirely. Even a 3 minute summary video was excessive.

Very disappointing. Probably the most boring release in years. Weren’t we supposed to get an iOS redesign?

The AI stuff like image generation is very disappointing so much resembles AI's first steps from a year or 2 ago.
