Of all my apps it seems only Trello doesn’t start on iOS 11. That is surprising to me, it seems Apple and app developers alike have been doing really good work.

So far I’m am liking iOS 11 on my iPad Air. Of course there are the usual slowness and abundance of crashes with such early software but the fundamentals feel good.

Eager to see how it shakes out but a little bummed they managed to break iBooks as much as they did though.

How do Apple manage to break iBooks with every major release? It’s quite astonishing for an app which sees as little development as it does.

There would be obvious problems with it but imagine if the HomePod was also a mesh network pod like an Eero unit. Providing audio and connectivity in every room.

My wife watched some of the keynote with me, I suspect she was a bit worried that I was cheering. She remains married to me so that wasn’t the breaking point of weirdness.

iOS 11 looks good but it’s very slow and battery hungry in its current state. I also find it a tad more confusing but that’s likely just a matter of playing with it until I’m comfortable with its ideas. The new on screen keyboard is rather a good idea.

Surprisingly Apple managed to screw up iBooks even more in iOS 11. Now books in iCloud just plain don’t download which sucks when they are removed from the device to manage space during OS upgrades.

Oh the joys of early beta testing.

So my iPad Air went from having slide over multitasking in iOS 10 to no multitasking in iOS 11 it seems.

I wonder if @viticci’s smile can be seen from space right about now.

Come to think of it, iCloud storage increases and support for Family Sharing was my number 1 missing item.

Requesting update.. requesting update..

I’m not impatient, not at all. I resisted a whole 10 secs to install a dev beta profile.

So iOS 11, I lust for thee.

Outside of Apple News in more regions I think I got everything I wanted in today’s WWDC keynote.

Let the good times begin!

Let the festivities begin.

We have got to stop fueling the hatred.

Being better people and welcoming those who flee from disasters in regions around the world largely caused by our wars and crimes will do much more to make us safe than anything.

We need to stop using violence as conflict resolution.

I appear to have downloaded enough WWDC prediction podcast episodes to play non-stop until the actual event.

I kinda feel like people are forgetting that the WWDC keynote’s only 2 hours. There’s only so many announcements they can make and they won’t drown us in press announcements either so let’s all calm down a bit. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by expecting the world.

I hope iBooks will finally be fixed in iOS/macOS 11. The apps are just in a terrible state.

My number one hope for WWDC is to see Apple make a commitment to using Swift going forward in as many places as possible and showing how they started that journey already.
