WWDC 2021 continued with a packed day four. Serenity Caldwell reflects on it all, including sessions on extracting document data via the Vision Framework and meditation. The Apple Design Awards finalists and winners were announced too.
Each year at WWDC, Apple’s Design Awards celebrate the apps which have surprised, delighted, wowed, and otherwise impressed Apple’s internal panel of judges. This year there were six finalists in each of six categories (with a bit of overlap). Of those six finalists, two winners per category were crowned, one for Apps, and one for Games. Links to all of the winners and finalists are presented for you here!
Today Kelly talks to James Thomson of PCalc (and “About” screen fame) and Daniel Jilg of App Telemetry about what they’ve seen at WWDC.
Day three of WWDC 2021 has been and gone, and Serenity Caldwell provided an update on what happened. There were sessions on bringing real-world objects into augmented reality, designing Shortcuts and actions for apps, and UI design. Apple engineers and designers shared how the built Apple Watch around accessibility too. Also, please enjoy the Mac startup sound at the beginning of the clip!

There was almost no mention of Apple’s media offering during the WWDC 2021 keynote – less, even, than in the years when Apple was not in the media and content space. Kelly Guimont joins host Charlotte Henry to discuss this and things that were announced, such as SharePlay.
