    Wow, after that keynote I am totally let down by Apple for the last time. We were told last year that a refresh was supposed to be for iOS 12 but was pushed to iOS 13 to make room for performance improvements. Now that the keynote is over and the big takeaway is freaking Dark Mode, like that was the most requested item. No homescreen changes, no icon updates. Incoming calls still take up the whole phone as do Facetime calls. No multitasking on the Plus or Max iphones. Like they spent 20 mins are freaking Minecraft? The updated security Im sure is a welcome from the news of breaches. It says you can now sign in with Apple. Apple is just trying to hide the fact they wont be sharing with Google but they will still have access to peoples data. So for people to think they are safe from all tech companies then you must be blind. They finally added swipe to text. Android only has had that since day 1. Faster performance, like seriously, you build one of the fastest chips on the market and you are now only supporting 6s and up. Whos slow? The only thing keeping people on iphones is seriously iMessage. Seriously people know they have better features for the money on other phones like Samsung, Oneplus, etc yet your all now blinded that Apple is the best. Where is Jony Ive? Doesn't he still work at apple?

    Uh, it has iPad mouse support, therefore it’s the greatest iOS release ever.

    Please, you watch within 30 mins this thread will have similar people who have the same feelings. If you honestly think that was a good Keynote your crazy. Im happy that iPad is again getting love but they are leaving out the major player that started this being the iPhone beyond the competition yet again.

    If you’re disappointed about iOS 13 then I feel sorry for you. It is a massive update for everyone.

    So basically you’re mad because the iPhone home screen is still a grid of apps. Yet no one has come up with anything better.

    I do agree with you about incoming phone calls taking up the entire screen but it’s a minor annoyance in the grand scheme of things.

    But iPad has it's own OS now. So it's not the greatest iOS, it's the greatest iPadOS, lol.

    You’re right, they should also add mouse support to the iPhone.

    If you are referring to iOS 13 proper (and not iPad OS) then I can understand why it seems like a big letdown.

    If all you care about is new icons every year go buy a android phone and theme away. Or just jailbreak your iPhone. So many great things across the board

    The Clinton Archipelago unfortunately

    Sounds like Android is what you're looking for. I like the small changes and a few features added. It's part of what makes Apple updates great and easy to use.

    Keep in mind there’s a lot that didn’t get announced in the keynote. More will be revealed throughout the week.

    OP’s wall of text has good copypasta potential, especially this bit, it really got me:

    “The updated security Im sure is a welcome from the news of breaches.”

    This would be the best iOS update ever if it autocorrected usage of ‘your’ and ‘Im’.

    Did we watch the same keynote?

    1. Street View in Apple Maps with clickable stores when "virtual walking" a street.
    2. Apps launching 2X faster, App download sizes smaller
    3. swipe typing natively on the keyboard
    4. location services privacy
    5. Sign in with Apple over google/facebook that creates a random e-mail address to register you for a app/service that you can delete later.
    6. more intuitive photo editing, video rotation and filters
    7. live radio listening.
    8. Siri sounding more natural
    9. Airpods reading back messages and going into listening mode if you have them in your ear
    10. Bluetooth sharing.
    Your take away was Dark mode? funny because that's the feature I care for the least.

    And the cycle of disappointed critics who think the newest version of iOS would fix everything they wanted continues!!

    iMessage is what keeps me. I have to travel a great deal, make calls/messages to and from out of country. When around half of Americans have an iPhone, and only use iMessage/FaceTime because they're built in, it hurts not to have them.

    as for features regarding the gentleman above. I was impressed, but I'm not the target consumer for these features. I can understand why others are underwhelmed.

    Street View - Already existed with competitors, and limited utility for me.
    Apps launching 2X faster - I don't have an issue with performance now.
    swype - don't prefer it.
    location services privacy - tough one. i'm pretty cautious with telemetry as it is.
    Sign in - depends on developer support. Something tells me the devs I'd want to use it will not, and the ones that do, I didn't have to worry as much about.
    more intuitive photo editing - I do what little photo editing off device.
    live radio listening - already do that through apps, and i thought that was homepod focused.
    Siri natural - i don't talk to siri. i give some short, specific commands when I must. Her response accuracy has improved, but not enough. Fix that before fixing her enunciation.
    Airpods - Don't have them. Don't intend to. Not noise isolating. I need them to be similar to ear protection foamies in the places I go.
    Your take aware was Dark mode? - Apple seemed to be very proud that they reinvented the black screen and green blinking cursor.
