    Apple today unveiled new versions of iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS, all of which are jam-packed with new features. iOS in particular was referred to as Apple's biggest iOS update ever, with major improvements to Messages, Apple Music, Siri, and tons of other minor features.

    It took Apple two hours to go over all of the features in the four operating systems and it was still a lot to take in, so we made a seven minute recap video that features all of the need-to-know highlights.


    Stay tuned to MacRumors.com going forward because we're going to be sharing in-depth videos highlighting new features in iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS throughout the coming weeks, and we'll be publishing detailed roundups with everything you need to know about all of Apple's upcoming software updates.

    All of the four operating systems are currently available to developers only with a release slated for the fall of 2016.

    Tried watching the keynote while traveling back home across the Arizona desert. Unfortunately (or not) I kept losing cell service. So I gave up. Looks like I was better off saving my data. I can only shake my head at what Apple comes up with.

    This video leaves out too many parts of the keynote. It's missing the part about the new Macbook Pro, the new Mac Pro, the new Mac Mini, the new Thunderbolt Display, etc.

    As uninteresting as this seemed at first, thinking about it now, Adding these last features of iOS to OS X, pip, siri, etc, means theres finally nothing major iOS can do that OS X can't.

    ...which would be important if you were going to eventually build a big truly "pro" ipad, with OS X on it. Wouldnt want your top of the line model to not be able to do popular functions key to the tablet experience you've already established on your lower end models.

    7 minutes is 6 minutes too long given what they announced. Can't believe they rented that place for this.

    I think 7 min wasn't needed. You just need 10 seconds of Tim Cook saying "goodbye."

    I am on the other side of the planet right now so it was already difficult to stay awake. I think we all expect Apple to keep upgrading the System software of their devices. A lot of the improvements are actually very nice but Apple must know that at least half of the (world wide) audience was waiting for computer hardware news.

    Why waste 7 minutes when the keynote can be summed up with one picture?

    Way too much time spent on emojis.
    Remote app for Apple TV is welcome.
    Looking forwarding to speed improvements on the watch.
    Apple Music 'improvements' did not impress.

    The rest I can wait for. iOS 9 is working fine for me, so I'm going to sit the beta out this time.

    Seems like there are people who like to pretend like nothing actually happened.

    As of Monday evening, the stuff those people really paid to be there for hasn't actually happened yet.

    Unfortunately, it wasn't worth wasting 7 minutes, let alone over 2 hours.

    When the biggest cheers came from the intro of automated-emojis, it pretty much settled it for me that I'm clearly not part of Apple's target market anymore.

    This is the third disappointing keynote in a row, but for the first time in 5 years, it really feels like Steve's company is no longer his. And to imagine they're diving head first into making the car too...

    Very ho-hum!

    All those changes to Messages are merely glitz.

    The new features in Sierra don’t really warrant a new version number. This all could have been included in macOS 10.11.6 (for that matter with the change to “macOS” they should have dropped the “10.” prefix in the version number).

    We need a modern file system, not UI bloatware!

    A friend noted that this might actually be part of the problem. Apple has a history of taking the best people to work on big new projects, and leaving the old products behind. One wonders if maybe all the best and brightest at Apple are now working on the car project... because they certainly aren't working on macOS and somewhat iOS it seems.

    Underwhelming. Some nice things, many predictable things (catching up) and A LOT of cringe worthy stuff. So much empty marketing talk. So much self congratulation. But the "magic" is gone. The new iOS seems like quite the mess. The elegant clean iMessage is turned into a garbage fire. Many other highly questionable design choices. No sight of dark mode. Or Siri continuity (so that It can pick up the convesation on / or control other device). Or working notification sync (how long do we still need to clear the same notifications on different devices?). How about some really substantial improvements to macOS, besides name change? What about VR/AR and other tech innovations happening all around us?

    But most of all - with STILL no hardware updates, the Mac hardware lineup is now beyond pathetic. WWDC was the last hope for me. Mac is/was my number one reason to stick with Apple. At this point I just don't care anymore. Sure something will come, probably something nice, but I simply don't trust/like Apple anymore. It will be expensive and probably somehow gimped. Apple today is arrogant, self-absorbed, lazy, overpriced. Dishonest (selling years old stuff at same ultra high prices, claiming it's "the best we can make"). Their messiah-like statements about all they do and care is to better everyones lives are womit inducing at this point.

    PS - I promise there will be less rants/negativity from me in this forum. Simply don't want to waste any more energy caring about this lame watch band seller.

    Or just summarize with 4 words: No hardware, move along.

    We should try a 1 minute summary, as there wasn't much in this announcement. Mostly Tim in denial that Apple isn't (edit) in trouble and isn't playing catch up!
