A few thoughts on the Apple WWDC 23 keynote

Wow, that was a lot to take in. 120 information-packed minutes. I will need some time to get through all of it.

Just a few quick thoughts:

  • Apple Vision Pro is not expensive. It has the exact same sticker price as a Microsoft Hololens 2 and it is far more advanced.
  • The Mac completes its transition to Apple Silicon with the long-awaited Mac Pro. M2, M2 Pro, M2 Max, M2 Ultra, the family is complete.
  • The 15-inch Macbook Air is a nice addition to the line-up.
  • Just a little tidbit: with iOS 17 you will be able to share AirTags with up to five people. That is going to make them so much more useful for shared items. Like a dog collar or a bike.
  • Facetime on Apple TV will be used a LOT here at vowe’s magic flying circus. The iPhone serves as the camera.
  • Apple Watch gets a nice re-work with watchOS 10. I want the Snoopy&Woodstock watch face.
  • AirPods are getting a mute switch and adaptive audio. Both are very welcome additions and adaptive audio will enhance computational audio even more. This is a killer product.

Vision Pro got a strong reaction from my partner. I think she would not want me sitting around with it.
