WWDC 2016 Keynote

WWDC. The moment we – and developers around the world – have been waiting for.

It’s 1am here in Hong Kong and some of us have gathered in our conference room, fueled by a little bit of junk food and some energy drinks – Tsingtao, anyone?

Here’s a rundown of what was covered at WWDC – through our tweets and images. Next time, we’ll emoji-fy it for you.

watchOS is fast as lightning. We blinked, and so didn’t snap a picture in time to show you just how quick it was. We’re also happy to see that there’s support for Apple Pay now within the watch.

We were very excited to see Hong Kong (home of yours truly, of course) make an appearance on the big screen, even though it was to show off the emergency dial feature.

We’re loving how Apple Pay is now available on the watch and on the web. Pay online, authenticate with your iPhone or Apple Watch, and your purchase is complete.

We love when Apple cracks jokes. Sometimes, they’re spot on. This one? We’ll let you be the judge of that.

We reckon that the office will be a bit louder now that Siri is available on Mac.
