    For the watch, I just want full iMessages in the Clould so when I delete off my phone they also delete off the watch. Such a pain to delete messages on the Watch.

    I guess you didn’t read the list...and it’s not like 99% of those Google Updates actually make it to any phones outside of the 3 Pixel phones they sell.

    Your not the only one, many don’t. We actually spend our time in apps and not staring vacantly at a home screen.

    It’s just a vocal minority that feel as though they represent the majority, and yet still end up purchasing iPhones. Or so they claim.

    An Android user. Apple is looking to de-couple the Watch from the requirement you have an iPhone.

    So no new HomePod will be announced? Just a software update?

    I hope we get some better performance with Gmail, but I'm not holding my breath...

    Apple leaking all this now so they can fanfare the launch of ARM-based Macs at WDDC.

    The Apple Watch stores the last 30 days of messages and automatically deletes older ones. It used to bother me too, until I realized that it doesn’t have to be managed at all.

    I believe it is audio books only.

    Two things I’d like to see in iOS 13....

    -Dark mode
    -Smart “Do Not Disturb” where I can omit certain apps from being silenced.

    I’m really looking forward to these updates. My guess is Apple has some amazing and major updates this year.

    What I would have wished for (could be one of the "additional changes" on the last slides of the iOS presentation), would be improvements to automatic space management on iPhones and Mac, especially with iCloud Photos. I want my most recent photos to be always available and have some flexibility as to keeping some albums in full quality, a certain number of recent pics, etc. I find that iOS is a bit aggressive regarding freeing up space, most of my apps disappear as soon as I save a video!

    I'm looking forward to one day being able to sync my phone with my iPad. If I can do that, back my iPhone up to a 1TB iPad Pro, sync iTunes music (and have all the functionality of the desktop version of iTunes on the iPad) and back up my iPad to an external drive NAS or DAS, then I'd be happy to leave my MacBook Pro on a desk all day.

    Would it be too much to ask for the return of the split keyboard in new iPad Pros?

    I thought he meant true split screen monitoring, where you can see the stats from both apps at the same time on the screen.

    I noticed that too. I’m guessing the HomePod is probably the least of the Products they will provide updates for WWDC, as it was recently updated not that long ago. I have a feeling the HomePod likely has another update/refresh coming later this Fall.

    I’m hoping smaller things like Volume UI, Time until charged, Fast charging, etc. are all smaller things that will be included

    That's a fairly dispiriting list for MacOS, but we have heard elsewhere that they're going to fix splitscreen pinning to be on par with the vastly superior Windows 10 implementation.

    Hopefully it will include a bevvy of eGPU improvements under the hood, and especially boot camp support.

    I'll buy a bunch with cheap cellular plans for older relatives then.
    There is no reason it can't just pair with an iPad, iPod or macOS device though if that's all someone has.
    What they mean is so it knows who issued the command. You can add multiple users to the HomePod (e.g. you and your partner, like the "Hey Siri" setup on your iDevices).


    Anyways, I hope they also bring along a few things like Health app on other devices (can't really use an iPad to track steps, but Health data is synced to iCloud anyways so might aswell have a viewer on your iPad/MacBook). The Messages app changes (avatars etc.) sound to me like they are potentially paving the way for RCS support as a fallback for iMessage.

    its no use to add features to iOS. iOS today is where OS 9 was in 2001 and Windows 3.1 in 1995.

    It was built for a different era. Time for a completely new OS for iphones and iPads, but Tim Cook is too scared to kill his golden goose.

    WatchOS and IOS for iPhone looking to be underwhelming again (except for dark mode).

    Yay.....
