Anyone else excited and weirdly nervous for tomorrow? #WWDC
Happy 40th, #WWDC!!!
"The first ever WWDC was held in 1983, with the introduction of Apple Basic, but it was not until 2002 that Apple started using the conference as a major launchpad for new products. Beginning in 1987, WWDC was held in Santa Clara. After 15 years in nearby San Jose, the conference moved to San Francisco, where it eventually became Apple's primary media event of the year and regularly sold out. WWDC returned to San Jose 13 years later.” – Wikipedia
Went to Infinite loop for #WWDC registration today. Apple employees have a LOT of energy 😆. Great first time experience tho. Hyped for tomorrow 🥽
almost #wwdc. as we await the potential announcement of the reality pro headset, here’s a list of praises tim cook has made about AR. https://www.theverge.com/21077484/apple-tim-cook-ar-augmented-reality
I miss the Layers conference and I hope it can return someday. There aren’t any venues near Apple Park other than developer center… but I feel like this is the type of event Apple could make accommodations to host. #WWDC
Who else is excited about the #wwdc keynote tomorrow?
My first #WWDC in 8 years where I’m not working. It’s a strange feeling being on the other side of it, but this sabbatical has been 👌
Excited for all my colleagues involved tomorrow, and the years of hard work behind the scenes they put in!
I've gotta say, #WWDC in winter is definitely a different vibe. ☃️
Super excited for #WWDC!!
Apple and iOS friends: I won’t be with you at WWDC, but I hope you all enjoy getting together again after such a long hiatus. There will be a lot of tech stuff going on, but don’t lose sight of what’s really important: Meeting new people and renewing existing friendships. Have fun! #WWDC #WWDC2023 #iOSDev
Just realized I scheduled a meeting at 1pm tomorrow like a dummy. #wwdc
Happy #WWDC Eve to those who celebrate.
Which #WWDC23 bingo card are y’all using? I have this one but would like to find others.
Send them my way!
Pretty excited to live post reactions to #WWDC tomorrow afternoon.
Okay, so I'm gonna weigh in on the #Apple #Goggles thing...
My thoughts are simple:
1: I hope they're right - in that they can do this.
2: Even if they are, I'm not gonna buy it. I can't see myself inside any kind of goggles since I tried the Oculus and got so sick.
So, I guess I'll have $3k more to put toward my next Mac, right? That's how accounting works, right? (trying to talk my husband into this - so I can get the Mac I want next).
16 hours until #WWDC!!
Happy Dub Dub Keynote Day to those who celebrate #wwdc
I am mentally unprepared for #WWDC but I am also really freaking excited!! I can’t wait to see what’s new this time round. And then rewatch the Keynote 50 billion times afterwards to see if I can catch new details I missed!
Will #Apple reveal the VR headset of the future or the next Apple III, Twiggy disk drive, iMac circular puck mouse, Newton*, iTunes Ping, Magic Mouse underside charging port, MacBook butterfly keyboard, MacBook TouchBar, etc? Only time will tell
#WWDC2023, Mon, Jun 5, 10am PST
*Be kind. I gave Apple this idea - check my personal Web site for details

iOS 17 really needs to be a refinement update. Lot of great things were introduced in iOS 16 but iPadOS and iOS feel more segregated than it has in a long time and not for the best IMO. watchOS needs to be reworked to take better advantage of the Ultra in terms of UI and specialty features to make it stand out. tvOS… 🥸 do whatever with that. macOS really just needs refinements and polishing with UI/UX. Spotlight needs work like usual. rxOS or whatever for the headset needs to be usable. Apple has a habit of releasing 1.0s that are very bare bones and leave us with a year of “hopefully [x] will be in 2.0” or the obligatory “maybe we’ll see that next year…”. Stage manager…commit to it or drop it. Focus modes includes docked apps? Please? APIs: Networking, WeatherKit and Swift Charts….I want mooore. SwiftUI: can we finally drop UIKit and not have native SwiftUI methods instead of breaking in the UIKit for Hax. A native JSON parser would FANTASTIC IMO. #WWDC #WWDC23
Stop trying to make VR happen. It’s not going to happen. #wwdc
I've reached what I consider Tears of the Kingdom’s version of The Wind Waker's Triforce quest. It's not _that_ intolerable, but it really reduces my desire to keep playing. #WWDC week is probably a good time for a break anyway!
…and who can forget the podcasts, where I had some of the most fun of the week! Great shows and a great time meeting and chatting with this great community. #WWDC
Flashback to my first (and so far last) time attending #WWDC, WWDC19 (and #LayersConf!) Looking back, this being the final conference before COVID changed it - probably forever - was a special experience.
Hope everyone attending this week has a great time!
0.5 sleeps till #WWDC.
As much as I like living in Sydney, the timezone can be a pain.
Hot #WWDC rumour: there will be absolutely no mention of any Australian marsupials at all during the Keynote (not sure about SOTU)
I am prepared to be wrong, though
With #WWDC around the corner, I've cleared my deck and wrote up my thoughts on Microsoft's Build conference. Interesting guidance for adding #LLMs to apps and the upcoming tools in Azure do look like promising building blocks.
Did the green “1” at Infinite Loop get refinished, or am I imagining things? It has a more yellow hue in every photo I've seen this weekend. My own photos from a few years back and other recent (pre June) shots don't match. #WWDC
When tempted to install the macOS 14 beta, do consider installing it on a separate volume. Apple has an article that covers the details. #WWDC https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208891
My expectations for WWDC 2023 this week. #wwdc #wwdc23 #Apple
⚠️ Surprise! There is a 10-20% chance of a thunderstorm tomorrow ⛈️ during the #WWDC keynote. Plan accordingly.
If Apple announce the headset tomorrow, I’m guessing there’ll be a DTK that developers can apply for tomorrow and that units will start shipping during the week. That’s how it went when Apple announced the Apple Silicon DTK during WWDC in 2020. #WWDC
How’s the crowds at the Apple Park Visitor Center today? I’m thinking of grabbing a coffee there to enjoy the full experience of my first year in more than a decade of viewing #WWDC from the outside. Anyone from out of town going that way today?
Thinking of bringing my Lotus Evora with the INFN8LP license plate (soon to be replaced) if y’all want to take photos with it. You know, if you want to do the tourist thing.
Starting my journey down to San Jose for various #WWDC events. I’ll be sporting various Alpenglow T-Shirts, come say hi and grab an Alpenglow Pin.
#WWDC tomorrow is happening so you have time to get a subscription to Platformer so you can put out a blanket and basket in the discord park for the best commentary ever.
actually add that to the list of journalists to follow, @TexasObserver — @caseynewton
as would be a shock to no one, I once again find myself at San Pedro’s square right now #wwdc
Don’t tell anyone, but I just had a nap before dub dub. #WWDC
24 hours until we’ve seen the headset 🤞👀 #WWDC
Mastodon feels really alive for #WWDC!
I wasn't quite sure where I was going to charge this rental Polestar electric vehicle. But it turns out the visitor center at Apple Park has charging for customers.
In der @freakshow rätseln wir darüber, was ein #Apple #xr Headset wohl an "Story" mitbringen könnte und kommen nicht so recht weiter. In den Kommentaren https://freakshow.fm/fs266-mehr-bums tauchten 3 Ideen auf, die mich zumindest überzeugen:
- als medizinisches Gerät ist es eine dynamische Brille, die jedwede Sehprobleme ausgleicht. Gleitsichtbrille adé
- als Arbeitswerkzeug ersetzt sie 3 Studio Displays. Alle Probleme mit Auflösung, Latenz, Eingabe sind gelöst.
- LLM on device
Mal sehen! #freakshow #WWDC
Meta wishcasting for #WWDC:
Tim decides to wear a shirt that isn’t a shade of blue. Yes, I know your eyes are blue Tim, but come on switch it up sexy.
Ich bin sicher, Visa und Mastercard verspüren vor einer #wwdc auch so etwas wie Vorfreude… Und dieses Jahr ist deren Freude bestimmt etwas größer als sonst.
Meta wishcasting for #WWDC:
Tim Cook will take a brief moment (always a time constrained event) to call out Pride Month, and comment on the disgusting display of civil rights violations happening mostly, but not exclusively to #trans people. He made similar comments at a spring event related to Black Lives Matter.
Wishcasting for #WWDC:
Bring back the iPod Socks, but for iPhone, and expand the offering to include iPad Sweater.
Over/under on Tim Cook announcing Apple.social, and deep system integrations for Mastodon at #WWDC?
In the midst of all the excitement around Apple’s announcements this week, let’s not forget what #WWDC is all about: the developers.
They’re the ones who turn our devices into magical tools that make our lives better, and they’re the ones who make all of these platforms we love into thriving ecosystems. We all benefit from their hard work and artistry.
Thank a developer this week.
I gotta say, I don’t care about a VR headset at all. I just want that 15” MacBook Air that I have been waiting for since last year.
