The keynote at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference may be one of the biggest events of the company’s year, but it only ever scratches the surface. Not every change or update makes it into the presentation—even when it’s pushing two hours, as it was this year.
As people begin to dig into the betas and watch all of the attendant technical sessions, there’s a lot more that’s coming to light. And while much of that information is about things happening in the here and now, or perhaps about the products that will be released in the near future, this is Apple we’re talking about. The company plays the long game.
That, in turn, has encouraged those in the Apple community to start digging into the details and, of course, read the tea leaves about not only what’s in the pipeline for later this year, but also what some of these changes mean for the future of Apple’s device roadmap.
