Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, went on stage to introduce and highlight developments on the said operating systems with the support of Cragi Federighi.

The phone’s camera also performs 70% faster along with the keyboard that comes up 50% faster than usual, and the share menu can be executed twice its previous speed.

Apple TV

The Dolby Atmos is being integrated into the AppleTV 4k during WWDC 2018. Atmos transfers sound within a 3D space, swathing the room in theater surround sounds that have been created through smart artificial intelligence programming. In addition, Apple is collaborating with cable suppliers to discard the cable box.

Spectrum initially made it through, however other providers a still expected to come in. All channel subscriptions will go through protected and automatic networks without the need for any identification. This means there is no need to always log in to any paid subscriptions. Remotes from third-parties (your cable company or a universal remote) could likewise be utilized to operate the AppleTV.

macOS Mojave

The macOS Mojave is the upcoming model of the macOS where the Dark Mode will be integrated. Dark Mode is now accessible for every first-party app as well as XCode. Also, the Desktop Stacks looks stylish where files are arranged into stacks making folders easily accessible.

Finder also gets a new view, named as Gallery that appears to be similar with Cover Flow, but more enhanced. Within the new vie, the user can do swift edits by using Markup without necessarily opening files that are in another program, such as Preview.

Similar iPhone screenshots features are also going to be incorporated in the macOS, where after getting a screenshot it automatically emerges at the bottom corner where the user can use numerous tools to either resize the image or edit it.

According to Federighi, Apple is focusing on better apps protection for the current year. Mac provides API-level security for Photos, Messages including other items. Whereas Mojave protects backups, Mail database, the camera, and microphone.

In the previous year, Safari disabled tracking through default settings. But this year, Apple tightened the security features more by closing share buttons along with other items that could be manipulated to track users without their being aware of it.
