Every year at WWDC, Apple introduces a long list of features coming in the fall. Some make for better demos than others, and there are always ‘sleeper’ features that are hard to show off but make a meaningful difference to many users.
This year, two of Apple’s splashiest WWDC announcements were SharePlay and Universal Control. SharePlay has been pushed off to a later OS update, and the Mac’s Universal Control is missing in action late in the beta cycle. We’ll see those features in due time, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some of the other features that I’ve been using the most during the summer because splashy or not, these are the features that have made the biggest impact on how I use my iPhone, iPad, and Mac day-to-day.
