Tim Cook is recapping the keynote.
Tim Cook is doing a bit of a wrap up. Let's see if this is the end.
Devs in the audience seem to like the video.
Seeing a feel-good video of developers talking about their feelings on learning to code.
"We believe coding should be a required language in all schools. To help make this possible, we're making Swift Playgrounds free." – Tim Cook
Swift Playgrounds is aimed at kids. Related, I'm a big kid. Yay me!
New definition of "Swift Keyboard"
Swift Playgrounds will feature a new "coding keyboard" designed specifically for use with Swift.
Cheryl Thomas: "Wouldn't this have been cool when we were all learning to code?"
Swift Playgrounds uses an interactive world and characters you control through the use of Swift code.
Cheryl Thomas is on stage to demo Swift Playgrounds.
Tim Cook introducing "Swift Playgrounds," a new app for iPad. It's a programming app designed to let you learn and use Swift.

There are more than 100,000 apps using Swift code, according to Tim Cook. Says it's the #1 language project on GitHub.
iOS 10 developer beta today, public beta in the fall
Craig Federighi talked about 90 second on the subject of Differential Privacy, part of Apple's efforts to add features and respect privacy.
Apple and differential privacy
Craig Federighi: "Every major part of iOS 10" will be open to developers. That's so huge.
Craig Federighi briefly mentioned Split View in Safari, Notes collaboration, and a few other features he didn't go into detail about.
iOS 10 features
iOS 10 adds Live Photos editing and Safari Split View, too.
iMessage apps can be accessed from within iMessage itself. Like stickers, or a food ordering app. Or effects apps like JibJab.
Craig Federighi is *owning* this keynote. Really relaxed, really smooth, having fun. Crowd in the palm of his hand.
Craig Federighi is back to say that iMessage will be opened to developers! Yes!
Messages API and Apps
iOS 10 iMessage will also support full screen effects that briefly take over the full background.
iMessage demo is a tad rough but we're seeing the different bubble options, live photos, handwritten messages, invisible ink, and more.
New presenters Bethany and Emraan for iMessage features.
iOS 10 will allow for loud or quiet bubbles, as well as invisible ink" that require you to swipe away a layer to reveal the message or pic.
Handwritten messages and digital touch in Messages
All emojifiable words will be tappable in iMessage in iOS 10. Very slick.
Emoji will be three times bigger in iMessage transcripts. Emoji will be included in Predictive text, too. #iOS10
Contacts will remember how you prefer to call people (cell or VOIP app). Very useful for Siri calls.
Rich Links in messages
VOIP apps can integrate with the Lock Screen meaning you can get them as incoming calls just like a phone call. Carriers have to hate that. 🤘🏻
Apple is adding geolocation abilities to #HomeKit. Yes! Also, finally! This is a necessary feature in my mind. Will work with #AppleWatch, too.
Craig Federighi is showing #HomeKit improvements in iOS 10.
HomeKit built into Control Center. Devs went nuts
New Home app (finally!)
Apple News in iOS 10 will also feature notifications—I would very much like to see that.
Federighi literally just RAN on stage, not expecting Eddy to end when he did. I'm guessing Eddy Cue skipped some slides after the Music presentation ran over time.
Apple News will support subscriptions.
New News UI and Subscriptions
Apple News is getting a redesign, too, including a better "For You" features broken down into sections.
Eddy Cue says Apple Music will also be redesigned on macOS, too. It was a casual mention, as all demoes were in iOS.
Can you find TMO in here?
Clearly Bryan and I are feeling this particular presentation a little differently. :)
Dave and I posted dueling opinions on Apple Music presenter. She must be coming off better on the screen than in person.
Appel's female presenters are knocking it out of the park.
She's a fun presenter, but her presentation is losing folks here. It's much slower-paced and meandering than others before.
"We're going to pause this because some of you guys are rapping to the beat." Oh so true.
New Discovery Mix added to For You
She's walking us through with The Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight as a soundtrack. She wants the audience to rap along with the tune.
Lyrics added to Apple Music
New presenter for Apple Music demo.

Apple is opening Maps to developers in iOS 10.
iOS 10 will add "Search Along Route" searches. Yes! Also, finnaly!
Eddy Cue pulled up Maps, tapped restaurants, then used a slider to specify seafood. Very intuitive and fast.

iOS 10 will have a new interface for Maps. Eddy Cue says it will be more proactive. If so, that's awesome.
Maps gets proactive

iOS 10's Photos will auto build a video of your trip, combining pictures and videos. Looking forward to seeing that in cation.
Photos in iOS 10 will intelligently sort batches of pics by choosing the best ones as a representative sample.

Apple is doing a lot to do searches for Photos, but all local to your device rather than offloading to the cloud.

Craig thinks Tom Sawyer is a "power ballad." I beg to differ.
You can save Siri search results to your Notifications with a click.
Siri joked about not having a problem with "the lack of Windows." For the lols.
Siri on the Mac! Finally! Craig had Siri introduce herself.

Apple Pay is coming to the Web, this will allow retailers to incorporate it on their sites.
Craig Federighi joked about using Apple Pay on our Macs with a photo of a woman pulling her iMac out of her purse. Big laugh from audience.
Apple Pay on the Mac! j/k
Desktops will be Universal between Apple devices, too. Kick butt!
As Neil Ticktin says: Rhapsody Lives!
macOS Sierra will support "Universal Clipboard," which allows your Apple devices to share the Clipboard. Very cool.
Craig is showing us Auto Unlock, which automatically unlocks your Mac based on #AppleWatch proximity.
Thank whatever diety you like for this.
