Cook: Invited Federighi back to the stage.
Federighi: This is clealry some kind of endurance training thing.
Federighi: Over 4,000 new developer APIs.
The stage patter is clearly well-written. Shara laughs at every laugh line.
Federighi: Extensibility. Applications from the App Store will be able to extend the system and offer capabilities to other apps.
What that means is, basically, apps can provide services to other apps. This could greatly expand the functionality of the OS and the apps.
Federighi: One of the reasons we're so secure with iOS is sandbox. Each app can't access info from others. Want to build on sandboxing model. LIve in own sandbox but other apps can reach out by way of Apple's security
SDK talk may not be the most exciting thing to hear about from a consumer perspective, but this is the part that the WWDC attendees are actually, you know, here for.
Federighi: An app like Pinterest can now offer share sheets to Safari. App like Bing can offer translation right inside Safari accessing content right there.
Federighi: Own iCloud document providers. Enabling third party apps to define widgets that can go in notifications.
This is all similar functionality to what we've seen in Android for some time, of course, but it's nice to see it on iOS finally.
Federighi: Let's start with photo filters. Nice photo of a flower. In top left, extensions button. Waterlogue extension able to run right here in the context of photos to manipulate my photo, bringing up their own UI. When done, right back in photo album
So, we're seeing easy hand-off of data from one app to the next, which will require a lot of coordination between developers, but the results can be incredibly powerful.
Federighi: Widgets. I have my existing widgets here in my today view. At bottom says one new widget available. It's SportsCenter. Can position it where we want.
This is all an interesting crack in the "closed" sandbox of iOS experiences. Especially third-party widgets, lots of potentially cool s
Federighi: Let's take a look at iPad. Interactive widget from eBay. Bidding on a guitar. Apparently I'm being outbid. But can submit a leading bid right in notification center.
eBay bid sniping, right from inside the notification center -- no one will ever outbid me on a JVC Videosphere again!
Federighi: Safar translations. Beautiful guitar but in Japanese. Bingcan translate it righ tin line.
Great, if highly curated, demo of Bing Translate as a webpage translator.
Federighi: Pinterest has an extension right here in Safari. Can bring up UI defined by Pinterest. Can find the photo want to share, tap and pin it.
Federighi: One important kind of extension I did fail to mention. Ability to install system wide, third party keyboards.
Again, going back to the idea of drawing in functions from other apps/services, without forcing you to switch apps.
Huzzah, third-party keyboards. The biggest missing piece on iOS IMHO.
Federighi: Now if a special keyboard you want to use, can install in iOS. Run in most restrictive sandbox. But can connect to network for more functionality, but has to ask you. We put those controls in your hands.
Federighi: Next up, Touch ID API
I agree with Tim completely -- Swype has totally changed my life... typing on my iPad feels so archaic now.
Federighi: From the moment we introduced Touch ID, developers were excited about the potential. Passcode usage on iOs before Touch iD. Now 83% of purchase made with Touch ID\
Federighi: Third party apps can use Touch ID. Protects login and user data. Always keep fingerprint data completely protected inside the secure enclave.
Federighi: Next Cameras. Cameras APIs for exposure, white balance
Federighi: Ability not just to read but also to write. Perform non destructive edits.
