This year’s WWDC21 has been the most focused conference for – precisely – developers in recent years. Changes to high level they presented us as a keynote only they keep a lot more secrets and updates under the hood, more important than we thought. After reviewing the post-presentation materials, I speak about it today on the podcast with Julio César F. Muñoz, which, as you can hear, details what he found to be the most remarkable of these changes.
Apple has focused its efforts this year on improving and empowering the tools developers need to build authentic next-gen apps.
Used, as we have been for a few years, to functionalities that are much more apparent to the public, this year Apple seems to have focused on the stability and renewal of many tools
The proof of this stability are the same betas for the developers of these new operating systems which are already available: although it is not yet a public version and it has errors like the first version, even improved the feeling of robustness that we already had last year with iOS 14 – and that this year with iOS 15 (or iPad 15, Monterey O watchOS 8) work very reliably.
Mac and iPadOS, a way to share strengths
Improved exporting and converting apps between different systems just got a lot easier – almost simultaneously creating apps for macOS and iPadOS is more real than ever
One of the key points of this year is facilitate application conversion. The arrival this year of the M1 chips, which were originally featured in the early M1 Macs in the architectural transition to Apple Silicon, has brought the iPad Pro closer than ever to the Mac. With the idea of making it easier than ever for developers to get a Mac application on the iPad Pro (or vice versa) the new tools, changes and different updates that Julio tells us about in the podcast can also bring him much closer. Always, of course, leverage the strengths of both systems: keep the basis of the application and refine only the key points in each material to make it more useful and adapted to what it offers us.
We talk about a lot of things, one of them, also very important, is the finish (who does not want the thing) a complete application development environment that even allows us publish our creation in the App Store… without leaving the iPad. Swift Playgrounds stops being a toy to become a tool and offers everyone the opportunity to enter the world of development, learning in an original and fun way. All that (and further) in this very concentrated episode but where We give you the keys to understand this WWDC21 so atypical for the general public.
