Apple is now on its fourth and potentially final round of betas for its current operating system generation, with golden master builds of iOS 13.6, iPadOS 13.6, tvOS 13.4.8, and watchOS 6.2.8 now available to download by developers. The company also issued a fresh beta for macOS 10.15.6.
Apple is preparing to roll out Apple Pay support for Catalyst apps with the release of iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur later this year, a move that will allow developers to easily deploy streamlined in-app payment experiences across both operating systems.
We're still gleaning details of macOS Big Sur and iOS 14 since WWDC, but there's also the on/off "iPhone 12" delay, the peculiar difficulty of replacing a Mac Pro's SSD, and the way your iPhone may replace your ID, all on this week's AppleInsider Podcast.
When Apple's executive team took the stage at WWDC to tout its latest software developments, it also took aim at many existing features. Here are five things that Apple tried to kill during its annual developer's conference.
A leaker reports that Apple is working on Apple Silicon prototypes with macOS running on the iPhone, which would allow a user to plug an iPhone into a dock or monitor, and have a full desktop experience.
Apple is increasing its support for APFS on its computing platforms, bringing the ability to use Time Machine with an APFS-formatted disk to macOS Big Sur, while enabling the ability to view external drives using encrypted APFS in iOS and iPadOS 14.
With iOS 14, Apple is boosting its HomeKit smart home platform with new features and quality of life improvements that users have been clamoring for such as motion zones, facial recognition, and more. We walk you through all the changes coming this fall.
Many newly uncovered features of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, suggestions for those wanting to install the developer betas on their devices, the Apple Silicon revolution, and more from WWDC on the AppleInsider Podcast.
Apple's slickly produced WWDC20 keynote didn't directly emphasize it, but the new macOS Big Sur that will ship to the public this fall is officially "macOS 11," marking an end to the twenty-year progression of "Mac OS X" branding. But don't worry, it's not the end of the Mac.
In what has become an annual event, Apple SVP of software engineering Craig Federighi and VP of product marketing Greg Joswiak sat down with John Gruber to discuss the new products, innovations and services announced at WWDC.
