 - Good Morning and welcome to WWDC. It's here that we bring some of our biggest innovations to life. To start, I wanna addressthe topic of racism, inequality and injustice. And to recognize the pain being felt throughout our nation. Especially in our blackand brown communities after the senselesskilling of George Floyd. Two weeks ago we announced Apple's Racial, Equityand Justice Initiative with the commitment of $100 million. We also announced somethingimportant for this community. The new developer entrepreneurcamp for Black developers.

Right now our world isalso battling a virus that is affecting the daily lives of billions of people. We wanna thank thededicated people everywhere, especially our healthcare workers who have made tremendous sacrifices to take care of those in need. Today, we're gonna topush each of our platforms forward in some excitingand breakthrough ways. So let's get started with iOS. Our new release is iOS 14. Wouldn't it be great it there were a way to organize all of those apps without doing a thing? Well, this year we're doing just that with something called the "App Library" It's a new space at the endof your home screen pages that automatically organizes all your apps in one simple and easy to navigate view. So here in App Library, getting to the app I'm looking for is really easy. Up at the top, I have the Search field and I get all my appsorganized from A to Z. Now, over here on the upper left, I have "Suggestions", ituses on-device intelligence to show me the apps thatI'm likely to need next. And on the right, is "Recently Added" and below are intelligentlycreated categories. Next, let's turn to Widgets. To start, they're morebeautiful and data rich.

And we're introducing different sizes, so you can choose onethat best fits your needs. So check this out, I'm just gonna tap and hold on the Weather Widget, and I can drag it out of "Today" view andon to my home screen. And watch, as I move it around, the apps just dance out of the way to make space for my new widget. The gallery is a greatplace to explore widgets. Now when I tap on one, I can actually page through all of thedifferent sizes available. With the "Smart Stack", I can easily swipe through widgets topick just the one I want for the moment. But what is really coolis that the "Smart Stack" can actually do this for me automatically. So in the morning, Ican get my news briefing throughout the day, find out when my meeting is coming up. And in the evening, I might get a summary of my activity for the day. Next, we're also bringing"Picture in Picture" to iPhone. So you can access apps on your iPhone while watching video, ortalking on a FaceTime call. Now, check this out. When I swipe to go Home,the video automatically goes into Picture in Pictureright over the home screen. And when I launch another app, like notes I can keep watching. I can drag the picture toanother part of the screen, if I wanna make it bigger,I can even pinch to zoom. And as I move between applications, it stays with me.

 And what's cool is I canalso swipe it to the side and the audio keeps playingwhen it's off screen. Another iconic experience that's getting a major update is Siri. So this year, we've completely redesigned Siri experience. With a new compact design, Siri pops up the bottom of the screen and instantly launches the app. Or if you ask forinformation like the weather, results appear at the top of the screen just like a notification. - Siri has always been greatfor getting information and now has over 20 times more facts than just three years ago. This year you can now ask Siri to send an audio message and Siriwill start recording.

When communicating withsomeone in another language, Siri can help with translations. This year we're expanding to support many new language pairs. We're introducing a newapp called "Translate" It can work completely offline, keeping your conversations private. Using advanced on-device machine learning and the powerful Neural Engine you can translate your text and voice between any combinationof these 11 languages. And just turn the phone to landscape to open conversation mode. We've designed a side by side view that's easy for two people to know which side to follow in the conversation with just a single microphone button because the app intelligently detects the language spoken and shows translation on the correct side of the screen. - Next up, Messages. - Let's get started with conversations. So we are introducing a new way of letting you stay connected to your most important conversations by letting you pin themat the top of your list so you can always get to them. And you can see messages as they come in with a beautiful animation on the pin. Next, let's talk about expressing yourself with "Memoji". (up beat music) - In iOS 14, we're adding even more ways to create your look.

Over 20 new hair and headwear styles to let you reflect your hobby,profession and personality. We've also added something that's even more relevant today. Face coverings. And we're adding more age options too. And now we have threebrand new Memoji stickers that let you send a hug, a fist bump or even a blush to your friends. Last, let's chat about "Groups". First, we're adding in-line replies that let you reply directlyto a specific message, you can view repliesin a full conversation, or you can view them as their own threads. You can focus in on the specific topic. With mentions you canjust type someone's name to direct a message to them. And now you have theability to only be notified when you're mentionedin a group conversation.

With an all new designfor how groups appear it let's you see all themembers of your group where the most recently activepeople are shown largest. And for the first timeever, you can create a unique visual identity for your group by setting a group photo, or customizing your groups look with an emoji. You'll know who's mostrecently commented in the group because their their photo will appear around the outside of the pin. - Next, let's take a look at features that help us while we're out and about. Starting with "Maps". We're excited to announcewe're bringing a new map to more countries later this year, including the UK, Ireland and Canada. - In iOS 14, the Maps team will be working with some of the world'smost trusted brands to offer amazing guides. Guides for great placesto eat, shop, meet friends or exploring cities around the world. We're adding a dedicatedcycling option to Maps which allows users to ridetheir bike along bike lanes paths and roads. We'll even let you know ifyou have a steep passage coming up, or if you'llneed to carry your bike up the stairs. With iOS 14, we're bringing cycling to New York City, L.A,the San Francisco Bay Area along with a number of cities in China like Shanghai and Beijing. So we're also introducing EV routing.

 With iOS 14, Maps willtrack your current charge and factor in things likeelevation and weather to automatically add chargingstops along your route. We're adding congestionand green zones to Maps to easily see where they are along with alternate routing options. In addition, drivers inChina can securely store their license plate number on their iPhone and Maps will let them know which days they can enter congested citycenters based on that number. - And now, on the "CarPlay". We have new wallpaper options and we're adding support fornew categories of CarPlay apps. Parking, EV chargingand quick food ordering. - I'm excited to introduce adigital version of car keys. Now you can leave your keys at home and unlock and start your car with your iPhone. And the very first car to support this will be the new 2021 BMW 5 Series. Digital keys have security benefits they live in a secureelement of your iPhone.

And if it goes missing, you can turn off yourkeys remotely via iCloud. And you can share fromwherever you are with iMessage. Now, let's turn to the App Store. An App Clip is a small part of an app. It's light and fast, and easy to discover. So you can quickly get what youneed right when you need it. Let's start with thiscard which quickly pops up and with just a tap youcan launch the App Clip. The best way to discover App Clips will be with the new Appledesigned App Clip code. So when you see one, you'll know that there's an App Clip waiting for you. They incorporate both visual code and NFC.

 With all the core functionality of the app in a single location, Ican easily drag a photo to the sidebar and then justdrop it to add it to an album. We've brought this sidebarto many apps across iPad OS. We've also streamlined the toolbars, adding new dropdown menusthat consolidate functions into a single, easy to access button. The sidebar in Music makes iteasy to move between views. I can quickly jump betweenthe new "Listen Now" and my playlists. And once I start playing a song, I can bring up(music playing) a brand new full screen player where I can see rich album art transparent controls and lyrics, all in one single view. - The new compact Siridesign you heard about in iOS 14, is especially useful on iPad. Results appear at the bottom right corner, allowing you to easily referencethe app while using Siri Now an incoming call is represented with a compact notification thatdoesn't take you out of context. And you can simply tap to answer or flick it away to dismiss. So we've redesigned Searchwith a new compact design.
