Federighi: It's personalized. It learns how you type to different people in different apps.
No, it's predictive text suggestions as you type. What will this do for traffic to all those "Damn You Autocorrect" websites and listicles?
Federighi: Does so in a way thtat's always protecting your privacy. All learning done local to device and doesn't leave the device. Huge cheers to taht
Federighi: Next of course, continuity. You get all the great Continuity features.
Federighi: Can set up an instant hot spot with no configuration.
Federighi: Next up Messages. Message is the most frequently used app on iOS.
Federighi: When it comes to group messaging, great enhancements. Can name thread, can add or remove ppl from conversation underway.
Federighi: Can "do not disturb" on a thread level and you can choose when to leave the thread. You can also share location with people on a conversation.
Federighi: One feature I really love is our new Tap to Talk. Hold finger on microphone, swipe finger up when done talking and send what said.
Federighi: Greg Joswiak is taking the stage for another demo.
Tap-to-talk, essentially adding voice memos to messages. Makes this even more of a do-anything app.
Joswiak: Thread between Kim Vorrath, Greg and Craig Federighi.
Share your location in group messages via a tiny head on a map. You know, so the drones know where to find you.
Joswiak: Kim and Greg shared info. Craig is in SF. Kim is in Cupertino. Can tap to show location for an hour, day, or can choose when not sharing.
Joswiak: Do not disturb for a particular thread. Can leave convo with a single tap. Have all the attachments and photos from a conversation in a single place. Instead of scrolling to find photo, they're all in one place.
Joswiak: can now do an audio or video message with just a swipe.
Joswiak. I can do the same thing with a video message or a selfie.
Joswiak: It's super, duper easy to do these kinds of things. Self destruct unless you choose to keep them b/c audio and video take up a lot of space
Interesting that video and audio messages "self-destruct" after a time. Is that user-definable? Snapchat-like?
Joswiak: What's really cool is I can listen to audio message and reply from lock screen simply by lifting the phone to my ear. I can reply to it the same way.
Over an hour until the hair joke!
Joswiak: When you lower the phone, a message is sent.
Federighi: Next up, iCloud Drive
Lots of audio back-and-forth, although the reason we all switched to texting in the first place
is because we didn't want to talk/listen as much...
Federighi: Of course iCloud documents work great across a single app. With iCloud Drive, able to work across applications.
Federighi: Able to open documents directly from something like GoodReader. Can edit and those edits are saved back to original version so don't have copy problems.
Federighi: Next up, something you weren't expecting from me: Enterprise.
Love that they're pushing iCloud Drive for Windows, too.
Federighi: Turns out iOS is a huge hit in the enterprise. 98% of Fortune 500 uses iOS, and we're going ot get the last two.
Federighi: Also because of the amazing array of technologies. Both techs that apply to all of us, also enterprise manageabilty features.
