It was an interesting keynote. I'm excited about the Apple silicon transition.
I wished some hardware news but maybe due the pandemic it's all pushed back. Maybe in September/October we get to see an iMac/Pro updates.

iMac subforum in melt down today because of no new hardware 👀
The hype and the tension are still on! We can’t but agree on the fact that desire is the greatest feeling in these days, when many of us anyways need to watch our wallets. The big thing was Apple silicon, probably meaning that ARM is a wrongly rumoured path for future hardware. I am just as excited and curious as before, thanks for that, Apple! 😁

edit:
Whoops, I must have missed the point with ARM being the base of Apple silicon.

I really loved this style of presentation. It was exactly as I had expected.

On June 11, I said:

I expect that it’ll be a lot like Craig Federighi‘s iPad Pro demo. We’ll probably see some outdoor segments, Apple Park cafeteria and maybe in the Steve Jobs Theatre lobby. There’ll probably be ad format videos in betweeen segments.
While I do expect people to return to the Steve Jobs Theater eventually, I think that this might be the end of the “Stevenote” era. There might still be Tim Cook on stage with an audience in the theatre but some segments will be held in different parts of Apple Park and shown for those in the theatre on screen while those of us at home will see the kind of presentation we saw today.

I’d even argue that this might mark the end of the Stevenote era. Apple Park is such a beautiful campus. Showing it off during their presentations is probably better than watching people on a stage. Sure, there’ll be press events where Apple can interact with the world’s media face to face and they can try the new products in person, but these events may never again look like the keynote that Steve Jobs popularized.

Pretty cool to see Apple use the format that Nintendo popularized some years ago. Tim Cook even used the phrase "Directly to You"!

A pandemic doesn't affect an announcement, push it back until Jan. 2021. Make an announcement, I don't understand why that is such a hard concept for companies.

It looks like Tim got new glasses. I wonder if they were a prototype of the new Apple Glasses that were rumored. Hmmm...

I appreciated the keynote. I now know the future of macOS...and it's iOS...and the AppStore. No, thank you, Apple; I'm not buying into it. I abandoned iOS for Android some years ago but kept using Macs. My 15.6" 2014 MBP -and- my 27" 2018 iMac were sold and jettisoned last week. I'm glad I've done so.

Firstly: No thinking individual would buy an Intel iMac (the last one, presumably) this year; no 32-bit apps since (after) Mojave and, after next year, you can forget about macOS upgrades (and that word is really a euphemism for...something...other...than...Macintosh) for your Intel . So buy an iMac now or buy the next one and end up owning an AMC Pacer.

Secondly: If you think this transition means anything other than an AppStore for macOS—and by that I mean the only way you'll get your apps is within the confines of the AppStore—then you're living in a fool's paradise. This is what Steve wanted ever since day 1 of the Macintosh. He (thought he) designed a closed machine environment and even was quoted as saying an internal HD in the classic Mac "was impossible because we designed it that way".

Tim is nothing if not Steve's acolyte. I'm done with Apple as I move to Windows. Yes; I know what you're about to write; Windows blah, blah, blah. But I don't need Microsoft's App Store and can support individual developers with my money (and they'll keep all the money). Ordered a nice 13.3" HP Envy with a Ryzen 4700U for $822, delivered, that's two generations beyond what Apple deigns to provide. Want to blame Intel? Could have bought a 10th gen Intel version of this machine, as well; a chip Apple decided to ignore. But now we know why; it's "Apple Silicon" as the future, as Craig, et al, have so plainly made it clear.

See ya 'round, Tim. I gave you 35 years because I convinced myself that what you and Steve did to iOS devices wouldn't happen to Macs. I was wrong. My mission-critical apps run in Windows, too, so the transition has been easy.

iOS 14 is so lackluster, the "new" features are so underwhelming, worth an incremental update at best. Great vid, though.
Hopefully because it will become a stability update. But yeah, a few more features would have been nice.

IMHO one of the best keynotes since the iPhone was announced. I’m so happy to see Springboard getting updated — been hoping for that for years. The watch features are nice too; I’m glad they are including Sleep Tracking in the software update rather than locking it behind a new hardware model.

The only thing left scratching my head was Tim saying they have new Intel Macs in the pipeline (who is going to buy a new machine with an architecture that already has a death sentence)?

But overall, some really nice updates here. Good work, Apple.

We won’t know more about the ARM switch for a while, so what really stood out for me was how nice Big Sur looks. Really really nice.
The other highlights for me were the side bar for iOS apps, Scribble, and Notes improvements. I’m not a big widgets fan, but glad it’s there so people stop complaining. Phone notifications and airpods device switching was nice too.

poor iPadOS though. They had to take some of the general iOS features and demo it during the iPad section in order to balance out the agenda.
