The Lackluster WWDC 2017 Keynote

June 5, 2017

If you haven’t yet watched the WWDC 2017 Keynote, I can save you nearly two and a half hours of wasted time:

 

iOS 11 has a lot great features

watchOS 4 has a few good features

macOS High Sierra has a couple good features

iPad Pro has some good features

iMac Pro is ridiculously overpriced and not expandable (doesn’t ship until December)

MacBook Pro still has too little power, too little battery life, a substandard keyboard, an unnecessarily large trackpad, a maximum of 16 GB of memory, and is still overpriced

Mac Mini and Mac Pro weren’t even mentioned, and both haven’t been upgraded in years

HomePod: an overpriced speaker to compete in the shrinking Sonos market (doesn’t ship until December)

 

No tvOS update

No new Apple Watch

No new Mac Mini

No new Mac Pro

No new AirPort

No new Server.app
