Jimmy Iovine is going to iMessage in next.
Federighi: Yosemite, beautiful new design with notification center. Spotlight with fast search and access to all sorts of new info on the Internet. iCloud Drive, Safari. Its a wonderful new release.
Federighi: Available to developers today. Everyone else will get it in the fall. And it will be free.
So, devs get their developer preview starting today, and the final version is coming int eh fall, for free.
Federighi: Having a public beta program this summer. If you're a non-developer, you can sign up on the Web and receive access to Yosemite betas throughout the summer. Handing it back to Tim
Sign up for a public beta -- ok, that's a cool way to test drive the new features early.
Cook: It's a really terrific release. I'm just glad I'm in the beta program. Next up is iOS
Cook: We've now sold well over 800M iOS devices and each of the categories of devices has set its own sign sales record in past year.
Cook. IPod touch. 100M. iPad 200M. iPhone 500M units.
And that's about it for OS X. Lots of really interesting new functionality, without changing the essential OS X DNA. Interestingly, no mention of version number -- like 10.10.
Cook: What's even more impressive is how many new customers to Apple iOs devices has brought us. Over 130M customers who bought an iOS device in the past 12 months was buying their first Apple device
Cook: Now many of these customers were switchers from Android. They had bought an Android phone by mistake. And then had sought a better experience and a better life and decided to check out iPhone and iOS.
Cook: Nearly half of our customers in China in the past 6 months switched from Android to iPhone. This is incredible.
Cook: iOS 7 took our experieince to a higher level. 97% overall satisfaction for iOS 7
Very direct comparisons to Android from Cook. Higher satisfaction ratings, despite fewer overall users.
Cook: One of the reasons why customers say they love iOS is they make available our software updates for the OS available to as many customers as possible.
Cook: If you look at what has happend with iOS 7, almost 9 out of 10 people in our installed base are running our latest operating system.
The CNET liveblog team survey says -- two iPhones, two Android phones (one S4, one Note 3).
Cook: This is in stark contrast to Android. Less than 1 in 10 customers is on their latest softare. If look at a broader group, over a third of customers are running a version of Android from four years ago. That's like ancient history.
Cook: That means those cusotmers are not getting great new features, they're not able to run your latest apps, and they're not able to get security updates they may need to stay safe.
Cook. This is importnat for Android, which dominates the mobile malware
The benefits of a limited/closed ecosystem -- handful of products from one company
-- means 89% of people have current iOS version, vs 9% for Android.
Cook: iOs hasn't had these kinds of issues b/c do all can to make updates available to everyone.
Cook: We are not standing still. Today we're announcing iOS 8
Device software fragmentation *is* highly annoying. Main reason Android will never be as seamless as iOS.
Cook: iOS 8 is a giant release. It's really two stories, not one. Has great end user features but it also has incredible developer features so you can extend your experience and build apps that you couldn't do before.
Cook: Would like to talk about end user features.
Federighi is back on stage
Again, like OS X, the key here is frictionless upgrades for users. More important than anything else, really.
Federighi: Let's talk about iOS 8. Builds on the design of iOs 7. Enhancements for both iPhone and iPAd
Federighi: in iOS 8 refined notification center, but what I really love are our new interactive notifications. IF get a message asking where are you, can pull down and reply from where you are, don't have to leave the app you're in
