  • the expected tripartate split of iTunes into Music, Podcasts, TV
  • sync of stuff to iOS happens basically invisibly
  • Sidecar: connecting laptop to iPad as second display for a Mac
  • using your iPad as a drawing tablet for apps on your Mac, too
  • Accessibility improvements: control Mac and iOS devices with Voice Control, just with your voice.
  • Marizpan renamed to Catalyst and sure enough makes it super easy to start writing an app and then customize it to go out for iOS, macOS, iPadOS

Loved the way Craig was acknowledging (about a decade late) that the feature creep in iTunes was bad.

I'm not sure we have proof it was ever called Marzipan. It sounds specific enough not to be made up, but it could also be 1) referring to something different (such as SwiftUI) or 2) a deliberate red herring to try and find leakers.

It caught on outside Apple because it was a unique, simply name to refer to something more complicated ("UIKit on macOS" is kind of wordy).

Yes. He is good about seeing the humor within Apple and sharing it. He is becoming something of a rockstar for them, and the crowd loves him.

Also, SideCar is going to be a huge hit with designers. The iPad becomes two computers in one, and it's value goes way up.

Also, also, one of the biggest updates is adding iThings to the sidebar within Finder. Syncing is now moved over there, and while it will cause a lot of early confusion, it is going to be a way better solution.

Who let the creeper in?
